Cheese is a good snack. Or you could do chicken or tuna salad (make it yourself with light mayo and fresh celery/onions/bell peppers then you know exactly how to portion and what the nutrition info is) - mix with lettuce or put on crackers. I like those laughing cow cheese wedges. 35 cals each and enough to spread on half a bagel. the french onion is so good. Half a bagel with one wedge of laughing cow is under 200. You could also put it on crackers or wasa or whatever.... and I know apples can get old but theres lots of other fruits... carrot sticks with dip, or make a low cal spinach dip. Light mayo, diced onions and tomatoes, plenty of spinach and a pack of dried soup or spinach dip mix. Sometimes I just spread that on a piece of rye bread its delicious. Do popcorn or a small serving of chex and toss it in different seasonings - parmesan, italian seasoning, garlic powder/salt, cinnamon sugar, chili powder.... i'm always trying to think of diff snack ideas = ) be creative

A trick I learned from MFP is to remove the yolk from hard boiled eggs and replace with hummus. It is very good with a side of some veggies.

That is brilliant! Must try it :)

I was going to suggest homemade granola bars, as they are my current go-to snack for work and carry me all the way from mid-afternoon, through my post-work workout, to dinner.

I've got nothing else lol. So, I'm snooping to see what others have to say.

Almonds, Almonds, Almonds....or some other nut.....or Almonds!

I'm kind of a champion of the almond as you can see :-)

This little wonder nut ( seed ) has become the go to snack for my wife and I, for about a month now. We eat a hand full ( 28 grams is roughly 165 calories ) every day.

You can read countless articles on line about the goodness packed in these little guys, but here's just one.

Bumping for ideas as well!!
November 12, 2012 12:40 PM
I like to make snack bags - go on for some combination ideas.

Buying lots of diff seeds and dried fruit and mixing them is really easy, then just pop in a sandwich bag and nibble on. Dried cranberries, sultanas and almond flakes are tasty - just make sure you weigh up so you know the calories and don't over do it.

2 /3 Madjool dates are very tasty snack. Jazz up your apple with some peanut or cashew butter.

Cheese strings are another easy win.

Even make up a low calorie soup like tomato, stock and seasoning blitzed in food processor and take in a small flask, one serving of one i make is 127 calories.

Good luck!

November 12, 2012 5:32 PM
Love those as well..... Banana Chocolate is 130 cal for 3 cookies! Nice way to ease the sweet tooth and snack!
November 12, 2012 5:41 PM
My new thing is fat-free cottage cheese with sliced strawberries. You can have 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and the strawberries for about 120 calories. Pretty filling.

I used to be (still am) obsessed with luna bars and cliff bars, but trying to cut back because they are high in sugar. The PowerCrunch bars are delicious (200 calories each), and my trainer said they send metabolism soaring... but for the best bet, eat a banana with it to keep you full longer.

I also like a lot of what other people have posted already--- hummus and carrots, greek yogurt with fruit, almonds, apple w/ pb or string cheese, trail mix....
November 12, 2012 5:46 PM
