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!

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

  • 1 cup 0% Greek yogurt with ½ cup frozen raspberries (120+35 = 155 calories)

  • 1 slice whole grain toasted with 1 slice 2% pepper jack cheese, 1 large slice tomato, fresh ground pepper (100+50+8= 158 calories)

  • 1 medium cucumber with 3 tablespoons hummus (45+105= 150 calories)

  • 1 hard boiled egg and a small apple (70+55= 125 calories)

  • Tomato, basil and mozzarella salad (1 large tomato, 1 string cheese, 3 fresh basil leaves, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper) (35+80+40+5= 160 calories)

  • ½ whole wheat pita pocket filled with 2 tablespoons sliced black olives, 2 tablespoons reduced fat feta cheese, 1/2 cup sliced cucumber, 1 tablespoons diced red onion and 1 leaf romaine lettuce, shredded (70+25+ 40+10+5+5=155 calories)

  • 8 medium strawberries and 10 raw almonds (45+90=135 calories)

  • ½ red and ½ green pepper sliced dipped in ½ oz gorgonzola cheese mixed with ¼ cup greek yogurt (30+50+30= 110 calories)

  • 1 cup lentil soup (150 calories)

  • 1 corn tortilla filled with ¼ cup reduced fat refried beans, 1 large slice tomato diced, 1 leaf romaine lettuce, shredded (55+45+8+5= 110 calories)

 

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!

@keepsmiling19: honestly, the fiber one bars are glorified candy bars with HFCS. Slightly better in sugar, but at the end of the day its all processed foods. I prefer to stick with whole foods.

Hummus with multi-grain crackers

Del Monte Frozen Fruit Sorbets (yeah I knbow, fruit, but it tastes like a popsicle!)

Hummus & crackers/pretzels! 

Wholly Guacamole has 100 calorie packs that you could possibly also eat with cracker/pretzels/baked chips.

Nuts like almonds or cashews with a cheesestick or mini babybel cheese wheels.

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.
