Are these 8 fattening foods in your fridge? See the snacks that are sabotaging your diet now
Granola barsWhen you're on a health kick and decide to spend your Saturday morning hiking instead of sleeping in, the No. 1 snack that gets tossed into your backpack is a granola bar, right? Sitting on top of that mountain with the sun shining and sweat beading off your face gets even better when you bite into that satisfying snack.
