Vanilla non-fat yogurt and a small hndful of granola for crunch.
Fruit is both a snack and dessert to me. I vote for a nice, crisp apple.
I eat a bowl of cereal, cheese and crackers, rice crackers (they make really tasty ones by Quaker now), mixed nuts, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, pretzels and hummus
No one has mentioned laughing cow cheese yet. It’s the best! It would go with anything above.
@IAmLemondrop: I know you mentioned you eat nuts but are concerned about fat. The fat in nuts is healthy fat and they should leaving you feeling full for longer than lots of things. I sometimes don’t feel that satisfied while I’m eating them, so maybe adding a small piece of cheese would help. I always eat 15 almonds. I literally count each time. I don’t know where I read it, but somewhere said this was a proper serving size.
I just bought the best microwaveable oatmeal but the oats are old-fashioned and whole (unlike Quaker). It’s 120 calories and delicious!!! (I buy Maple flavor). I don’t remember the brand, but it is a tall skinny package where you actually use the package to get the right amount of water each time. Love it!
@ dance- LOVE the rice crackers with peanut butter!!
Stay away from 100 calorie packs, they are full of empty calories. The only decent one is the popcorn one. You get a huge serving and has fiber so it leaves you full!
Other ideas: Low-fat string cheese, Chobani greek yogurt, Fiber One bars (I try to stay away from “diet bars” because they are full of crap but these aren’t too bad and taste great), Cliff Bars
Here is a list I made for something
Other ideas… tuna made with greek yogurt instead of mayo, premade chicken cubes (I always keep it in my fridge) heated with a little bit of red hot and a few crumbles of bleu cheese (like a buffalo wing),
I love the Quaker mini rice cakes. The BBQ and ranch are my favorite flavors! They taste just like flavored potato chips! But they are all carbs, so they won’t be as filling as protein. Maybe a few of these and a piece of cheese!
Greek Nonfat Yogurt
Walnuts *just a small handful!(
Lite string cheese
No-pudge brownies (one – LOL – good luck on that one)
Hummus with multi-grain crackers
Del Monte Frozen Fruit Sorbets (yeah I knbow, fruit, but it tastes like a popsicle!)
Nonfat frozen yogurt. I consider Turkey Hill’s Nonfat Frozen Chocolate Marshmallow to be proof that God loves me and wants me to be happy!
@lefeymw: Wow that’s really specific! That’s awesome that you list the calories like that. For some of those you really get a lot of food for few calories.
I’ve been eating a lot of 100 calorie packs and those 1 and 2 point Weight Watchers bars and chips. I know they aren’t really the best thing to be eating though. They all have a lot of salt and the sugar in some of those makes me crash in the afternoon.
It’s embarrassing to be dozing off in meetings at work because I ate something with to much sugar. And it’s just as bad to be sitting there with my stomach making sound effects.
@JaneyD: As far as the nuts, I think I just need to get more specific with how many I eat. Counting out a specific amount seems like a really good idea. I’ll try it with the cheese next time since I don’t always feel satisfied after I’m finished with them.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Hummus is really good and has a lot of fiber. I eat it with pretzels or pretzel chips. Popcorn too (assuming it isn’t drenched in butter) is also pretty good for you with a lot of fiber, too.
