Healthy Hacks: Don’t have any chili lime seasoning? Try using regular chili powder and a drizzle of fresh lime juice! You can also feel free to swap it out with other spices and herbs that you enjoy. Try a bit of smoked paprika, lemon pepper seasoning, red pepper flakes or cumin. You can also add a bit of vinegar for a refreshing zing of flavor that’s low in calories! You also don’t have to limit these snack sticks to just cucumbers. Cut up some sticks of jicama, carrots, zucchini and even bell pepper strips to enjoy with your favorite seasonings.
One serving of these Spicy Cucumber Snack Sticks contains just 40 calories! You can log it as one Vegetable serving in your NuMi app journal. The best part about this light and healthy snack? It’s completely unlimited on your Nutrisystem program! Just be sure to watch your salt intake. We recommend eating at least four servings of non-starchy vegetables each day. However, this is just the minimum amount required and you can always have more than this if you’re hungry! Non-starchy veggies are low in calories yet absolutely packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber.
