Title pretty much says it all. I need something that isn’t messy, doesn’t stink, isn’t juicy (like fruits because the juice gets on important papers) and that is healthy but filling. Nuts used to be my go to snack but we just hired a new director that has a severe nut allergy and after I almost killed him by giving him a piece of paper I touched after enjoying some almonds I have to find some new snacks. Seeds are also out because he saw me eating some sunflower seeds and said he has an allergy to them too 🙁

Cottage cheese, carrot sticks, yogurt?

I was going to say Almonds before I read all of your post. They’re so good and I never feel guilty eating them! Carrots are a good suggestion, especially the ones cut into chips.

Yogurt, Cheerios (Honey Nut and Cinammon flavors are soooo good), Nutri Grain bars, Quaker Caramel Corn Rice Cakes (addicting!), bell pepper slices (this may sound weird, but they’re pretty good), light popcorn, and toasted raisin bread if you have access to a toaster

Carrots and hummus, apple slices (pre sliced) and cheese, greek yogurt with honey, fruit smoothies.

Apples are my #1, although that’s fruit and you said no fruit….
Bell peppers, cut into strips.

What about berries? You can just pop and dont have to bite into. Or diced apples?
Usually it was a smaller version of a meal, like a salad or soup etc but those are messy
I generally like a well balanced snack (protein, fat and veggie/fiber) so it lasts and doesnt spike the blood sugar and cause you to be hungry and crash.
As mentioned, greek yogurt is great, but also use it as a base for dips for veggies.
a roll-up with a large leaf of lettuce, slice of turkey and 1/2 slice 3% cheese with a squirt of mustard. 2 or 3 make a good snack.
chicken salad made with greek yogurt. Eat it with a fork with fiber one spinkled on top for crunch. The fork makes it no messy vs eating with on a cracker.

If you’re looking for a filling yet easy snack, I really like the Special K protein bars. Those keep me satisfied for quite a while and aren’t too many calories. They have several flavors.

Pre-sliced apples (no juice!) and peanut butter, individual wedges of cheese, carrots and hummus, popcorn with parmesan cheese

agree with carrotts, and I love grapes, easy to pop in your mouth without juices. Light string cheese too, thats a great protein.

Sugar-snap peas! I don’t even like peas normally, but I love the sugar-snaps.

I love carrots or celery, and also fruits like berries you can pop in your mouth. I also love the fruit leathers you can get at Trader Joe’s. Granola bars, parfaits, maybe some apples
