When in doubt, Skinny Taste. I try to stick to veggies and dip, but I have zero willpower most days. It’s awful.

I started eating Nutella on rice cakes at work to keep myself from snacking on candy! It makes me feel like I’m still eating chocolate. Smile

For snacks at night instead of eating popcorn or chips Fiance and I eat cauliflower. We cut off the florets, mix with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and bake 15 minutes, flip and bake for another 15. It’s delicious!

I also snack on celery with a little peanut butter, wheat thins, low fat graham crackers, dried fruits (they have this amazing dried pineapple at Costco right now) and healthy cereal.

Oh, hummus and pita too!! You can just snack on pita chips with it or tear apart pieces of pita bread. Veggies in hummus are delicious too.

@hyena:Oh that sounds delicious! I LOVE nutella….I won’t let myself buy it normally because I’ll just eat it with a spoon but I may have to make an exception to try this!

Oooh, I forgot, I also learned how to make sweet potato “fries” from my grandma. Mr. H LOVES them, and they’ve got some vitamins, even if they’re not super low-cal.

Sweet potatoes

2 Tbsp oil

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp garlic salt/powder

 

Slice up potatoes. Lay them on baking sheet and drizzle the rest of the ingredients over them. Bake 425 degrees for 20 mins. Mmmmmmmm.

@Running Elley: I also do this, since they only have plastic forks and spoons at work, so I spread my Nutella with a spoon and lick the rest off!

Greek yogurt and oatmeal are my favorite healthy snacks! Chobani has some aMAZing flavors (try the pineapple!) of yogurt and it has a TON of protein (twice as much as regular yogurt).

We both love veggie chips!  We’ll seriously go through a bag every few days if we aren’t careful.  But they’re healthier than regular chips and I think they taste better.

I also love putting yogurt in the freezer for an hour till it is slushy, then adding frozen mixed berries… YUM!
