20 (Moderately) Healthy Foods I Love

I love food way too much to go on a crazy restrictive diet.  Instead, I look for tasty and convenient items that are moderately healthy.  It's all about lots of flavor and quick prep/portability.

Since it's too easy to get into a food rut... which is super boring and causes me to dive into my favorite food groups (cheese and chocolate)... I like to refresh my menu line-up with ideas from family, friends, websites or magazines.

In an effort to share some suggestions (hey, aren't we all attempting to be a little healthier in the new year?), I thought I'd give you all a peek inside my pantry... and fridge and freezer.  Here are twenty of my top "moderately healthy" foods (in no particular order):

1) Del Monte Fruit Naturals - Pineapple or Red Grapefruit

2) Activia Light Yogurt - Vanilla

3) Sabra Hummus - Roasted Pine Nut

4) Lipton Diet Green Tea - Citrus
*A huge favorite of my sisters and mom!

5) Frontera salsa - Corn & Poblano

6) Frank's RedHot sauce
*Great on chicken!

7) Edy's Slow Churned Rich & Creamy ice cream
*Single-serving cartons are 150 calories each!  (Other good treats to satiate a sweet tooth: fat-free Fig Newtons and sugar-free chocolate pudding cups...)

8) MorningStar Farms veggie burgers
*My favorites are the Chik Patties, Spicy Black Bean Burger, and Grillers Prime (despite the photographic evidence, I do not enjoy Grillers Chik'n - accidentally grabbed the wrong box!)

9) Birds Eye Steamfresh packs - broccoli, green beans, peas... even roasted potatoes
*Only takes a few minutes in the microwave

10) Eggo Nutri-Grain waffles

11) Any brand of mini whole-wheat bagels
*I freeze them so they don't go bad before I get a chance to eat them all.

12) Jennie-O Turkey Meatballs

13) Swiss Miss hot chocolate
*For chocolate cravings!

14) Crystal Light Lemonade

15) Reduced Fat Wheat Thins

16) Any brand fiber chewy bars (especially peanut butter flavored ones)

17) Tuna in water
*I like to toss tuna into pasta or mac & cheese with some veggies, or I mix it up with some low-fat mayo on toast with melted cheese for a tuna melt.

18) Uncle Ben's Ready Whole Grain Medley - Santa Fe or Vegetable Harvest
*90 seconds in the microwave (can you tell I like my microwave?)

19) Frosted Mini-Wheats
*Gotta have a little frosting with my shredded wheat!

20) Baked Cheetos
*I can't give up my junk food and I'm not a huge fan of "baked" chips... but these actually taste like the real thing - maybe even better!

What are your favorite "healthy" snacks?  As I continue to strive for balance and moderation, I'd love to incorporate a few new foods into my pantry, fridge or freezer.  Any recommendations?


  1. I love cocoa covered almonds as an afternoon snack or apple with peanut butter. Also love the Orowheat round bread for sandwiches.The Yoplait no fat yogurts are yummy with fun flavors like lemon cream or Boston cream pie.
