something crunch i can snack on all day?
 
soooo i'm in search of something that is crunchy (NOTE: not celery or carrots :carrot:...sorry, had to put the dancing carrot in) that's super low cal and snack-ish, that i can graze on all day. since they have yet to invent the calorie free cookie, i'm hoping for some suggestions... if such a food even exists!

thanks :)

sorry--title should be something CRUNCHY, not crunch

I bought a bag of Kale this week and plan on making baked Kale Chips. I've never done it before but I've read good things about it !

that's an awesome idea--my roommate has made those a few times and they're great (though she used olive oil in hers, so i guess it'd be best to omit that). thanks for the suggestion!

I always have this on hand. As a rule, I avoid snacking, but if the hunger hits and dinner is quite late, I will reach for Kale Chips happily.

The vegetable ideas are good. I find that a 100 calorie bag of microwave popcorn can go a long way especially when combined with the crunchy vegetables.

I love water chestnuts, I eat a small can just about everyday to get my crunch on! Yum :)

kale is a green leafy vegetable. you can find it in the produce section of your grocery store. google a recipe, but basically you tear it up into small pieces and bake them. they come out crunchy and yummy!

thanks! i will definitely look for it and try to make the chips! i have a huge weakness for crunchy things

Go with all the above suggestions, kale chips are delish! You wont find anything other than vegetables to indulge in without the consequences.

Um, be careful about how long you bake the kale chips. I completely ruined them when I tried cooking them. It was so nasty, because they were wet and burned. ew. lol. I have yet to try it again.
