Well, I just inhaled a bag of chips as I was waiting to get out of work which leaves me with 120 calories for dinner… So I need some help bees. I need some work snack ideas that aren’t vegetables or fruit. I have a very sensitive stomach (I think I had an ulcer) so anything overly greasy, raw fruits and vegetables, and un-toasted bread make my stomach ache worse than the hunger pangs.
I eat cooked veggies and salads and fruits only when I’m eating something else. So when I’m having my morning yogurt, I can eat a banana or apple. Or I can have a small salad with my dinner, just not by itself.
Any snacking ideas? I need something to tide me over between breakfast-lunch and lunch-dinner. I’ve been eating almonds and other nuts but they are so high in fat that I’m eating a lot of them before I’m not hungry anymore.

Cheese sticks! Like the Sargento ones, but make sure you don’t eat too many!

I think that popcorn is relatively healthy. Yogurt might be good too.

I do cheese sticks, turkey pepperoni, 100 calorie packs, and popcorn.

I do popcorn. I like the little bags you can buy now, that have like a third the amount as a regular bag. I have a Whirly-pop I use at home, so I can control what goes in, and I prefer the taste. Am also a fan of hummus and pita chips (or carrots, but then there’s the raw veggie thing..) Or trail mix or roasted almonds.

I like hummus with pretzels (or baby carrots), 100 calorie packs, Pop Chips (a slightly healthier chip option) and salsa or guac with pretzels/pita pieces/chips.

@IAmLemondrop:They make little cups of apple sauce that are great also I sometimes eat a little cups of pickles. Both have very few calories and hit the spot for me for my afternoon snack. For an evening snack I have a strawberry juice bar that is 80 calories and yummy.

I like to have plain unsalted rice cakes and put peanut butter on them. If you use one tablespoon of the reduced fat PB, each rice cake is about 110 calories, plus you get the protein from the PB. Yum!

I really like eating hardboiled eggs. I second the Fiber One bars–just make sure to drink water with them! You can also get a 90 calorie version that is a little…ahem…easier on the digestive system.
I also love these frozen fruit bars that I get at the grocery store. Strawberry is my favorite! The more protein and fiber you can get, the more full you will feel.
Good luck! I am enjoying hearing everyone’s healthy snack suggestions!
