Lower cal salty snacks?

blkery | Aug 11, 2010 11:35 PM

I eat fairly healthy - when I reach for a snack, it's usually a diminutive carrot or cherry tomato. The problem is that after a pound or so of these, I've run out of hummus and any other dipping or saucing accessory I've found in the fridge, and the unaccompanied sweetness of the veg does not go that well with beer.

As developing some self control would take far too much time and effort, I'm looking for a new salty snack to accompany my suds and generally alleviate my salivation for sodium. I should say out of the gate that popcorn is one of few foods I don't like. I'm as fond as the next man as nuts, but they become remarkably unhealthy in the volumes I tend to snack on. I find nori tasty, but it isn't always a good prelude to a backyard barbecue. Any thoughts?
