I've been cutting out all the crappy processed junk food (chips, doritos, etc). What about pretzels, though? They seem fairly decent in terms of nutrition.

In my opinion, there are no "right" or "wrong" foods. Some are just better than others nutritionally.

If pretzels fit in with your macros and you feel like eating them, do it.

I agree. If you're getting enough protein and fat, and you need more calories or just feel like an easy snack, there's nothing wrong with munching on some pretzels to fill the void.

Well there's always issues. For instance, natural peanut butter is better than normal peanut butter because it doesn't have the partially hydrogenated oils that normal peanut butter does. Yet they have roughly the same macros, so I'm wondering if there is anything in pretzels that I shouldn't be eating them.

As long as they fit into your macros, and you aren't consuming TOO much salt from them, I don't see a problem. I can think of better snack food, but to each their own.

Carrots with natty PB are awesome, so are apple wedges with PB.

I found soy crisps to e pretty good as well.

Beef jerky, although you would have to watch your salt there too. That's my snack of choice. Unsalted peanuts are another. Any nuts really.

I think a better snack food would be popcorn. And not that cheese covered Smartfood ****. If you got an air-popper, it would be practically no calories. You could also put real butter on it for a healthy source of fat ;)
