No Carrots! Good-for-You Snacks That Taste Amazing
The Alternate: Gensler suggests cheddar Goldfish (a .75-ounce 100-calorie pouch has 1g saturated fat). Surprised? These old-school Pepperidge Farm crackers are baked, not fried, which makes them less fattening than they taste.

Replicate the cheesy, spicy kick of the nacho-flavored tortilla chips by sprinkling 2 cups reduced-fat microwave popcorn with 2 tsp. Parmesan cheese and chili powder to taste (83 calories, 1g saturated fat). Scientists sang popcorn's praises at a recent conference, citing new research that shows the naturally high-fiber snack has impressive levels of polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that prevents damage to cells and may have disease-fighting properties.
