Now that the kids are heading back to school, I feel like I can honestly get myself back on track. During the last 2 1/2 months, I have been a bit lax on exercising, eating, and self care. With just my son and I home for the bulk of the day, I can finally have the time to prep nutrtious meals, and plan for healthy snacking. These Chocolate Dipped Tangerines with Sea Salt are a great snack that calms my cravings for something sweet and salty with each bite.
Ok, so I am sure not everyone might have the time to dip some tangerines into semi-sweet chocolate, but it is actually a pretty quick to create treat. I am sure many of you want instant gratification when you need that sweet or savory snack. Trust me, I get in those moods too so I turn to better for me options when I have them in the house.
I find the key to healthier snacking is to be prepared. If you do not have fruits on hand, or nutritious snack choices turning to foods like chips or cake becomes easier. Reasons like these are why I try to keep Weight Watchers snacks on hand. In the past, I have lost 50 lbs on Weight Watchers so I know with renewed commitment it is possible to shed my excess pounds. Right now, I am just focusing on being the best me and achieving overall health.
On a recent market trip to Price Rite, I picked up my weekly groceries which included these English Toffee Crunch Ice Cream Bars and some Jolly Time 100 calorie Healthy Pop Kettle Corn Mini Bags. More often than not I crave a salty and sweet snack so these two low-calorie snacks were perfect! The ice cream bars have just 70 calories each, and the popcorn has just 100 calories!
Personally, I love how these two snacking options are helping to keep me in check with eating less calories because I was pretty bad during the summer. I ate probably a little too many chips, and some extra scoops of ice cream. I can certainly feel the difference in my clothes so I really am happy to have my home stocked with the right choices.

If you feel like being a little more creative in the kitchen, here is how to make these Chocolate Dipped Tangerines with Sea Salt:
- 1 large tangerine peeled, and divided.
- 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels heated until creamy
- 1 tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Once the tangerine is peeled, make sure each wedge is dry before dipping the end into the creamy chocolate.
Dip each wedge halfway and place them on a wax paper lined tray to harden in the fridge.
Once they are all dipped, sprinkle the sea salt over the wedges, and allow them to harden for 15 mins.
Enjoy them once they are done and you will be in for such a sweet and salty treat!
