25 Snacks With 100 Calories or Less

12 Apr

I stumbled upon this interesting slide show on WebMD about 25 guilt-free snacks, and we are talking about ice cream, pop corn, quesadilla, and more, that contain less than 100 calories. I couldn’t resist sharing it here. Check out the slide show 25 Super Snacks With 100 Calories or Less. :)

I instantly bookmarked it because of its clean feel without any distracting ads. Here’s how the page looks.

Hope you’ll find this information helpful!
