I am in love with Smart Puffs.  I also eat pickles constantly but the salt isn’t really healthy. :/

My favorite heathly snacks include blueberries, apples, oranges, Kashi granola bars, light yogurt, string cheese, a few goldfish crackers, hummus on pita, peanut butter on rice cakes with raisins sprinkled on top (yum!), peanut butter on baby carrots, and spinach salad with red onion strawberries and a poppyseed vinigarette.

Now I’m hungry! Smile

i love cucumbers drizzled in a little bit of soy sauce

or cottage cheese blended into a dip with cilantro, garlic, pepper….it’s super tasty and a healthy dip alternative for veggies

Peanut butter on rice cakes or apple slices sprinkled with a little bit of cinnamon sugar 🙂

I agree w/mmmtacos.  Smart Puffs & pickles are high on my list. 

I’m also madly in love with PopChips. 
Hummus with carrots/celery/peppers.
Reduced Fat Peanut Butter with a banana & honey.

I like the little Quaker rice cakes- they’re not so bad for you and pretty healthy!

I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble, but rice cakes are actually a pretty bad snack choice. While they aren’t terrible for you, they don’t contain any nutrients and thus don’t keep you full for long so you want to eat again in 30 minutes or so. Peanut butter or cheese on a single slice of multi-grain or whole wheat toast will keep you full much longer 🙂

As for my favorite healthy snack foods:

apple sauce

celery with all natural peanut butter (the kind with peanuts and nothing else)

low fat string cheese

low-fat yogurt with a sprinkle of granola

banana w/all natural peanut butter

muscle milk light

baby carrots w/Walden Farms Ranch (the ingredients are water and spices so there are no calories/fat in it) 

There are a million more things I love to eat for snacks but these are my go-tos 🙂

Give it 2-3 weeks. After 3 weeks, something becomes habitual and i promsie you’ll get used to not eating junky foods. I liked fried stuff too (mm crunchy) but after not having it for awhiel, i start realizing how sick it makes me feel and how it messes with my digestion.

I eat greek yogurt probably every day. Yeah it’s kinda boring, but i try to look ati t this way–food isn’t there to entertain me. It’s there to provide fuel. Every meal doesn’t have to be mind blowingly tasty or good, it just has to get me by. I have a few “stellar” meals a week, but otherwise it’s like “eh no big deal”. I also like almond butter.

I love love love apples with peanut butter- delicious and yet not a sugary mess. We start doing P90X tomorrow (as a couple) and I’m scared, because the overhaul of what we eat also happens tomorrow… sigh.

I’ll second ejs with the greek yogurt – the first time I ate it, it freaked me out, but I absolutely love it now. And it’s really filling, compared to regular yogurt. I also love apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon, and whole grain bread with a little peanut butter (or apples and peanut butter).

I’m actually trying to lose 15lbs by april too…and i also LOVE eating especially all the fatty foods….

I just started going back to the gym yesterday but as of food…

i usually eat low fat yogurts, special K bars ( strawberry & blueberry are my favorites), lean cuisines (pizza are great), baby carrots, turkey sandwiches, raw broccolis, meat, chicken…

healthy foods are boring and not tasty…

My mom isn’t a nutritionist but we were practically banged over the head with nutritional foods & stuff that’s all natural before “organic” was even a word. I grew up on the peanut butter you have to mix the oil into, she made her own jams from fruit and Wonderbread was jokingly called “poison bread”. LOL

My go-to snacks are usually cracker based. I LOVE flavored Triscuits (which I’d kill for right now since I’m no carbs for 2 weeks), cheese & hummus, turkey pepperoni, etc.

– roasted chick peas
– I like Cashew or Almond butter better than PB
– little turkey/cheese roll ups
– And I love little cheeses that come indiv. wrapped. Laughing Cow, Baby belle, etc.

@ jennifer_espos I totally hear you about the aging thing too. My body hit 30 and went all outta wack.
