Miss D’Orsay started a great thread the other day about yummy diet treats
I’m now looking for an easy snack for work. I usually end up eating a snack around 10:30 or 11, then again around 3:30. I want to be able to make & bring something healthy, but I need suggestions as I am currently bored with everything.
6 pistachios and a raisin do not a snack make in Quiche’s world. I am also over the 100 calorie packs…as I tend to eat the entire box in one sitting So hive, have you any suggestions?

I swear by 1 serving of fruit, and 1/2oz nuts; it’s my snack twice a day. Filling, but not too much. If I’m feeling the need for extra carbs, it’s the fruit + 1/2 a Cliff bar.

Trader Joe’s has a wide array of dried fruits and nuts. I’m particularly fond chili-spiced dried mango slices. YUM. Also, and maybe I’m alone here, I am a huge fan of the humble rice cake, spread with some peanut butter or jam.

I started the search for a healthy, substantial snack a few weeks ago because I found that come 5 p.m., I was so drained of energy, I couldn’t make it to the gym. I read online that celery and peanut butter was good because of the protein in the peanut butter. I started eating that around 4 p.m. every day, and it definitely holds me over! I keep a jar of all-natural PB at my desk, and put a small slab on each celery stick.
It’s kind of a pain in the butt to cut up the celery the morning up, or night before (not as easy as throwing a 100-cal pack in your purse), but it works! And it feels indulgent because, well, PB is delicious!

Love celery and PB – I forgot about that treat!
Also, I don’t shy away from carbs. The more the merrier

I usually eat a tomato for a snack if I’m at home, or bring a cup of strawberries with me to work to eat as a snack. Vegetables are always good, too (carrot sticks with some light dressing? Yum!). I mean, none of these are terribly satisfying, but they keep me from totally breaking my diet in between meals.

Nice little tomatoes w/ Laughing Cow Light cheese spreads (come in little traingles) are great. Also, maybe for breakfast try Greek Yogurt & place in a ziploc fresh raspberries & almonds & mix them in w/ maybe some honey or brown sugar to fill you up during breakfast.
Dole also makes great light fruit cups in a bunch of varities – and I think they are a great pre-gym snack as well 🙂
I also keep PB (reduced fat) at my desk. I eat it with celery or apple slices. Perfect protein.

greek yogurt + fruit or granola (I like the cascadian farms organic granola)
black bean hummus + carrots or cucumbers or pita chips
small pb&j sandwich on lower-cal whole wheat bread or one slice of regular bread

I love the light sodium rice cakes with sugar free jelly on top! Such a great snack! Or what about low-carb protein shakes? Those are sooo easy to make at work!
I am a novice figure competitor… I’m slowly learning all of the diet and workout tricks/tips from my several trainers! Its much easier when someone tells you exactly what to eat and what to do.. MUCH harder to think how to eat healthy on your own!
My fitness idol is Jamie Eason. I have found her website to be really helpful when it comes to dieting! She has a grocery store check-list that is truly all encompassing of what my trainers have been teaching me! If its not on that list, I dont buy/eat it!
also, definitely checkout bodybuilding.com and look in their articles about dieting and easy recipes.

If you have a fridge, I’d recommend 0% Fage Greek Yogurt with some almonds and just a bit of honey. I also like Kashi Autumn Harvest (it’s very lightly sweetened shredded wheat) with some skim milk. Yum!

I’m a big fan of pudding cups. I get the sugar free variety rather than the low fat kind because they have fewer calories — 60 as opposed to 100!

I usually go for greek yogurt–big fan of Chobani low fat honey flavored. I also get gluten free pretzel sticks with the laughing cow low fat cheese triangles. And when I am feeling really hungry, I have rice cakes (brown rice) with peanut butter and sliced banana. You have to make that one ahead of time but it’s sooooo sooo good.

I am a snacker so I needed to find snacks that were either low carb/ low cal and then change up my snacks on a pretty consistent basis. Here are a few of my favs:
– turkey pepperoni with strawberries or an apple, for some reason theres something about the combo of alternating bites between a salty meat with the sweetness of fruit that makes a great snack!
-Deli turkey slices wrapped around string cheese, yum!
-Sugar Free Jello
-Fruit dipped in fat free yougurt
-And like you mentioned, every 100 calorie pack known to man, I love the Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn
