Make Your Own 100-Calorie Snack Packs

I recently went grocery shopping with a friend and noticed she bought a few boxes of those 100-calorie snack packs. She explained that buying boxes of individually wrapped snacks like almonds, pretzels, and crackers helped her control portion sizes. I'm all about that, but was not all about how much garbage waste these individually wrapped snacks mean to our landfills. If you have a similar concern, here's an idea: make your own 100-calorie snack packs.

Grab some eco-friendly Ziploc baggies, reusable canvas baggies like these made by snackTAXI, or BPA-free plastic snack containers like these from Preserve. Then measure out 100 calories of your favorite snacks including dried fruit, nuts, trail mix, cereal, popcorn, crackers, or even sweet treats like chocolate covered peanuts. Make a few snack packs for the week so you can grab them whenever you feel like munching. It's a great way to prevent you from overindulging, which can lead to weigh gain.

The eco-friendly bags/tupperware suggestions are great. I always make my own 100 calorie packs and try to reuse the bags a few times.

I really need to start doing this. Does anyone have good sample packs? I think I might add some Cheerios with almonds and apricots. Then again, whole wheat pretzels (Trader Joe's) might work themselves in somewhere too.

Those snackTAXIs are pretty cute.

I've been doing this for a while. I usually use Tupperware containers or something like that. I never buy the actual 100 calorie packs of snacks because they're SUCH a ripoff.
