You tell me--would any "diva" eat this? It is NOT FOOD. It may contain 100 calories, but it also contains 4 grams of fat, 3.5 of which are saturated, 16 grams of carbohydrates, none of the fiber, and 7 grams of sugar. You will have eaten all kinds of synthetic chemicals and unhealthy fats and oils...and it will have done nothing for you nutritionally. Chances are it won't fill you up, either. But it will spike your insulin, leaving you searching for another couple 100-calorie packs or some other carb-y sugary snack.
For about 100 calories, you could have:
1 medium apple with a teaspoon of peanut butter
1/2 cup quinoa with lemon juice
1 cup celery, 1 cup carrots, 1 cup cherry tomatoes, AND a cup of cucumber
3 slices turkey lunch meat wrapped around red pepper slices
3/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
1/2 oz dark chocolate and 7 almonds
1 cup blueberries
These--and many more--snacks will leave you satisfied for a longer time, have great nutritional value, and are real foods.
So throw out your 100-calorie packs today, and reach for something nutritionally sound.
