Snacks galore, eleven zero point snack ideas and more!

Here are a few of my favorite zero point snacks for WW (and remember 0 + 0 does not necessarily equal 0 in WW):

Any veggie with 1/4 cup of fat free salsa to dip it in (or vegetarian re-fried beans for half a point, or go crazy and mix ‘em!) Cucumber slices and thick pepper slices both work great instead of chips to dip and have a very satisfying crunch.

1 cup fat free chicken broth with 2 tablespoons each carrots, onion and celery.

Kosher dill pickles

1/2 cup of Fiber One cereal (to jazz it up for 1 point add two tablespoons of raisins)

Sugar free jello or Popsicle

1/2 cup of sliced strawberries (it’s more than you think it would be) or blackberries or raspberries (if they are tart add a packet of artificial sweetener) OR if you are willing to spend a point top it with 1/3 cup of fat free whipped cream, super yummy!

Baby carrots (about 10)

Small salad with lemon juice and vinegar or fat free Italian dressing

Spinach steamed with garlic, onion and lemon juice

1/2 cup to 1 cup of zucchini chopped into “fries” and coated with 1 egg white, add salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. Bake at 400 degrees for about twenty minutes. 

A cup of coffee with 1 tbs fat free half and half, 1 tablespoon fat free OR sugar free whipped topping allow to melt in and then add artificial sweetener to taste. Also, add cinnamon or other spices to make it more latte like.

There are too many one point snacks for me to list, but others have done it (remember 1+1 does not necessarily equal 2 in WW):

On this site there is a great list of one point snacks: (Also has links to 2, 3 and 4 point snacks.)
