Ginger, Marshmallows and Dark Chocolate S'mores

Despite the drawbacks of ginger cookies containing sugar, they also offer some nutritional value, and boost your iron and manganese intakes which play a key role in energy production, and it supports tissue health by helping red blood cells carry oxygen to your tissues. Gingersnaps contain 3.6 milligrams of iron per serving -- a significant amount toward the 8 and 18 milligrams recommended daily for men and women.

Dark Chocolate (2-3 oz per week) has been proven to help lower blood pressure.

Low Sugar Energy Bars

Ali featured KIND Nuts & Spices bars which contain only 5g of sugar, are gluten free and all natural. www.kindsnacks.com

Dipped Grahams

Dip Graham Crackers in Yogurt and then freeze. A great refreshing, low calorie snack!

Ali's Tip: Use Greek Yogurt to double up on the protein!

Graham crackers have the lowest calorie count of almost any cracker with 50 calories per one large rectangular square.

Healthy Chips & Dip

For a lower calorie, filling snack try PopChips & Wholly Guacamole. Each individual Wholly Guacamole container has 100 calories. Pop Chips are 100 calories per serving, popped not baked, Gluten-Free, No Preservatives and No Trans Fat.
