I find I'm having some major salt cravings. I eat a balanced diet but somehow the salt cravings keep hitting me. I'm looking for healthy salty items that i can eat instead of hitting the chip bags...Can anyone suggest some healthy alternatives?

94% fat-free microwave popcorn. I also buy the cheese flavorings to sprinkle on it. It's all very low in fat and calories, and popcorn is good for you.

Hi, when I used to get the salt craving I used to have a raw tomato with salt on, then I started taking multivitamins too. No more cravings now Wink

Have you tried eating popcorn? You can get the 100 cal bags or just the reg ones but usually eating popcorn takes care of my salty wants. Plus popcorn isn't load with a ton of cal's like other salty things. Just need to watch portions. Nuts are also a good way to fill that salty need and they give you healthy fats and nutrients that your body needs. But again you just need to watch your portions. Either can be a great healthy snack that can kick your salt cravings to the curb. Good Luck!
