Ants on a log!  I love them.  You spread peanut or almond butter on celery sticks and top with raisins.  The raisins make them somewhat sweet.


If you have a food processor I’d also recommend Tutti Frutti:


You blend a bunch of frozen fruit and it’s delicious and so good for you.  I currently use bananas, raspberries, mango, and strawberries.

Carbs = calories unforch.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Carrot sticks (30 cal per carrot) & 1Tbsp of sour cream (30 cals) mixed with onion soup mix (10-20 cals depending on how much you use) tastes like french onion dip.

I get the dole fruit cups – pears, apples, mandarin oranges in their own juice (80 cals per small cup)

Kashi granola bars – just got pumpkin & walnut and Chocolate & coconut (120 cals each)

Pretzels – I get the small salted ones – around 20 pretzels (110-120 cals)

YoCrunch Yogurt (the small cups are 100 cals with NO artificial sweeteners)

Frozen waffle (75-95 cals depending on brand) with 3/4 tbsp natural peanut butter (75 cals)

1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (90 cals) w/ 1 cup of grapes (100 cals)

1 cup kashi heart to heart cereal (120 cals) w/ 1 container of greek yogurt (120 cals)

I’d say popcorn will be your best bet because it is low cal and takes a long time to eat. Watch out for kettle corn though bc a lot of times it has a lot of sugar (which obv = cals). One thing I used to do when I worked in an office was make my own trail mix. Something like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips. If you stay light on the cranberries and chocolate chips it keeps it pretty healthy, although not necessarily low-cal bc of all the nuts. BUT if you use smaller things like sunflower seeds rather than walnuts, it takes a lot longer to eat.

You can snack on as much fruit and veggies as you want. That is always a low cal option (except some fruit and veggies, such as avocado, bananas, grapes).

If you like them, pickles are another good option.  Or, as others have mentioned, kettle corn.

1 carb – 4 calories.

Bananas are not that caloric – there are 200 grams of calories in one average banana, but only 7 of those come from fat.

How about Cheerios? I think you can munch on Honey Nut Cheerios without too much of a dietary impact . . . they’re sweet, crunchy and heart healthy!

I don’t know about eating consistently….but I do snack every two hours at work. Here’s what I do:

Greek yogurt for breakfast at 9

String cheese for a snack at 11

Lunch at 12:30 (usually a frozen Amy’s with a veggie and a container of fruit)

String cheese at 2

Banana or apple with peanut butter at 3:30

Obviously I don’t eat exactly that every day but it’s a good base. I also like to have cottage cheese with berries (blueberries and raspberries are my fav in cottage cheese), Kettle Bakes Potato Chips (they’re not exactly healthy but they keep me from eating an entire bag of Doritos), steel cut oats with raisins, cinamon and stevia, 1 oz of almonds with cayenne pepper sprinkled on them….etc.

I don’t get to eat constantly, but I can look at the clock and thing, “just 30 minutes until my next snack! Yay!” I do calculate all my daily calories at the Daily Plate so I know I’m not exceeding my allowed amounts or anything.
