Craving something chocolate? Try…

CHERRY CHOCOLATE TRAIL MIX
This indulgent mix delivers nearly 20 percent of the energy-boosting iron you need in a day, which will help power you through your workout. Plus, the fruit and cocoa give you a healthy dose of antioxidants.

In a large mixing bowl combine 3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips, 1¾ cups Chocolate Chex cereal, and ½ cup dried tart cherries. Toss well and divide among 7 plastic baggies.

Per serving: 100 calories, 2 g fat (1 g sat), 75 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrates, 3 g fiber, 1 g protein

Craving something sweet and salty? Try…

HONEY NUT CRUNCH MIX
The one-two punch of filling fiber and protein will keep a lid on between-meal hunger, and studies have shown that snacking on nuts helps you eat fewer calories all day long.

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2½ cups Honey Nut Cheerios, 40 thin pretzel sticks broken into thirds, and ½ cup sliced almonds. Toss well and divide among 7 plastic baggies.

Per serving: 100 calories, 4 g fat (0 g sat), 150 mg sodium, 14 g carbohydrates, 2 g fiber, 3 g protein

Craving something sweet and salty? Try…

CARAMEL CORN
This sweet whole-grain snack tastes as sinful as any you can buy, but it has 75 percent less sugar—and 100 percent less guilt.

Melt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter in a large stockpot over low heat. Whisk in 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1 tablespoon water. When blended, add 7 cups air-popped popcorn and 1 ounce lightly salted peanuts (about 35 nuts). Toss until mixture is evenly distributed, then let cool.

MAKES 7 SERVINGS. Per serving (1 cup): 100 cal, 6 g fat (3 g sat), 11 g carbs, 85 mg sodium, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein

Craving something chocolate? Try…

DIPPED PRETZELS
These slim sticks satisfy the wickedest cocoa craving without seeming portion-controlled or low-cal. Using pretzels with less than 100 milligrams of sodium per pack will help keep bloat at bay.

Microwave 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips until just melted, about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Stir well. Dip the ends (about 1/2 inch) of 70 low-sodium mini pretzel sticks into chocolate until coated, then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cool at room temperature for 1 hour (or 20 minutes in the refrigerator).

MAKES 7 SERVINGS. Per serving (10 pretzels): 100 cal, 5 g fat (3 sat), 15 g carbs, 96 mg sodium, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein

Craving something spicy and flavorful? Try…

CINNAMON CAYENNE SUNFLOWER SEEDS
When you’re bored with nuts, crunch on this instead. In addition to providing a serious spice kick, the cinnamon helps keep your blood sugar stable, preventing a crash that could send you raiding the cupboard for cookies.

Place 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons shelled sunflower seeds on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt. Bake in a 325F oven until lightly toasted, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven and toss well. Allow to cool, and divide among 7 plastic baggies.

Per serving: 101 calories, 7 g fat (1.5 g sat), 55 mg sodium, 5 g carbohydrates, 2 g fiber, 4 g protein
