You may checkout www.pinterest.com and just type in "low calorie snacks" in the search bar. You will get links to pictures and recipes on there. Also, I recommend following blogger Taralynn McNitt, she is a huge weight loss success story and sure knows her way around a kitchen!

Otherwise, I really like the following low calorie snacks:

- homemade oven baked kale chips/sweet potato chips
- non-fat yogourt with grapes or no-sugar added jell-o cubes put in it
- non-fat cottage cheese w/ strawberries
- rice cakes w/ laughing cow light (cream cheese wedges) and no sugar added jam
- tea or coffee!

Visit Taralynn's website though, she makes up things you would never come up with yourself.

Walmart carries a delicious Greek yogurt spinach dip by Fresh Food Concepts that has only 40 cal in two Tbs. I divide the two Tbs between 3 crackers. I also eat this on a toasted half a bagel with a V8 for breakfast. Walmart also has another dip by the same company that isn't Greek yogurt and is more calories so get the one that is in the area with the sour cream and cream cheese.

Sometimes 10 chocolate chips do the trick.

Hot tea with three Ginger Snaps.

two or three slices of deli meat, beef, turkey or ham

-Kroger Ice Pix Popsicles-30 calories
-Reduced fat Wheat Thins w/ 1/3 less fat Philadelphia onion and chive cream cheese spread (Delicious on bagel thins too!!!)
-Kroger chocolate frozen yogurt-100 calories for 1/2 a cup
-Garden Fresh Gourmet salsa
-40% less fat kettle cooked potato chips (I add some salt into the bag)
-Oscar Mayer 98% fat free turkey hot dogs-40 calories for one (use Aunt Millie's Light bread at 35 calories a slice and mustard and you've got a filling 75 calorie snack)

I'm always looking for new low calorie foods and get excited every time I find something new at the grocery store :)
