Despite our best intentions to eat three hearty and healthy meals each day so we won’t be tempted to snack, we often end up, you guessed it, in need of a between-meal nibble. It doesn’t matter whether it happens at 10 a.m. or 3:00 p.m., when you start eyeing up the office donut box or the last remaining stash of Halloween candy, you’re toast. (Or, at least, you’re craving some.)

But it’s no big deal if you’re smart about your snacks. (Which means you keep on walking past the donuts and the candy.) What if you had, say, 40 fabulously brilliant options to select from — all containing exactly (or pretty close to) 100 calories. Now, imagine that some of them also provide a good source of protein; some offer a good dose of fiber; and some feature healthy whole grains — all things that you know you need more of in your diet. Well, consider it done.
