100 Calorie Snacks...

Chocolate-Banana Grahams

Frogs on a Log

Spread 1 stalk celery with 1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufch√Ętel). Top with 5 sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives. Makes: 1 serving. Per serving: 62 calories. What you get: Potassium.

Devilish Egg

Cut a hard-boiled egg (see Tip, below) in half. Combine 1 teaspoon low-fat mayonnaise, 1/4 teaspoon whole-grain mustard and a pinch each of salt and pepper and dollop it on the egg. Makes: 1 serving. Per serving: 91 calories. What you get: Protein.
Kitchen tip: To hard-boil eggs, place in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling
