A friend suggested fried, dehydrated, vegetable snacks as a easy more healthy way to satisfy my salty snack cravings. I bought some and now I am addicted. They sound gross but are some of the best tasting snacks I have ever had. Whole foods has all natural Veggie Beans (Fried Green Beans) and you can also get fried peas online.

I was curious though whether this is a South Beach friendly snack. Vegetables and oil are definitely on the friendly list but what about the process of frying. Any thoughts would be helpful.

As long as there are no potatoes or carrots it should be fine. It also depends on what KIND of oil it's fried in. I've had those before too and they are good. I eat peanut butter to satisfy my salt cravings. 1 tbs. is enough for me. My opinion: okay especially if it's not affecting your weight loss negatively.

I agree with the vegetables. Our local store (Piggly Wiggly) sells roasted, salted peas. I love them, as do many of the kids I've let try them. They satisfy my salt craving (which is usually worse than my sweet craving) and I don't feel bad because the ingredient list is only peas and salt.

Another good veggie snack is garbanzo beans/chickpeas. Drain and rinse, roast on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees F for about an hour. They should rattle when they're done. I did mine plain, but I bet if you tossed them with some salt or herbs before roasting they'd be really yummy.
Fast food sure is fast. . .at making you fat!
