I’m in the process of losing weight (10 pounds gone so far, whee!) and I try to eat two healthy snacks during the course of my day so I don’t become a ravenous beast at mealtimes. I usually have celery with a little peanut butter, raw veggies and hummus, a handful of nuts, or something else like that.
So what are YOUR favorite easy and healthy snacks to eat? 🙂

I am loving fresh berries right now. It’s so hard to have them because they go bad so quickly so you have to remember to eat them every day.
I also love Kashi or Fiber One bars for some additional fiber.

Lately I have been all about blueberries. You can eat large amounts with low calorie count.

Avocados ! Don’t be afraid of them ! The fat in them is a healthy fat and they are super healthy for you. Mash your own, add a bit of salt, pepper and I like to add a touch of tobasco, and spread on 12 grain toast. Works as a meal rather then a snack.

I’m all about the fat free Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of honey and some berries thrown in. Also, if you don’t like Greek yogurt, regular yogurt thrown in the freezer is a suprisingly good snack (think Pink Berry DIY).
If I’m craving savory, I slice up a cucumber and drizzle it with a little olive oil and vinegar and a splash of lime. It’s tangy, crunchy, and super tasty.
I read someplace that snacking on an apple will also help quell your appetite. This study found that in two groups of people who ate identical meals, the group that had an apple at the end of the meal did not snack later on while the other group did (or something like that…I can post a link someplace if I can find it ). Plus, fibrous or firm fruits and veggies are good to munch on because they help remove plaque from your teeth and are full of antioxidants!

I LOVE berries! Frozen berries are a nice cold treat and they are less expensive than fresh berries. I also love Craisins, string cheese, banana peppers, green peppers w/ light ranch, and chedder flavored rice crisps. 🙂

A couple of pieces of dark chocolate (I’m currently love Trader Joe’s dark chocolate callets) go a long way and are chock full of antioxidants!

My new favorite snacks are Brothers All Natural Fruit Crisps. So satisfying for a low amount of calories!
