Default 20 Snack Ideas!

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!
Here are 20 snack ideas from the Fitness section @ MSN.com. The best part? They're all 200 calories or less. :-D

1. Veggies and dip
Cut one large cucumber, one large carrot and a celery stalk into sticks. Mix a pouch of dry onion soup mix into a container of fat-free sour cream. Dip your veggies into one-half cup of dip.

2. Seasoned popcorn
Sprinkle a tablespoon of garlic salt, chili powder or freshly grated Parmesan cheese over three cups of air-popped popcorn. If you'd like a little kick, sprinkle some hot sauce on it as well.

3. Rice cakes and chocolate
Spread a thin layer (one teaspoon total) of hazelnut chocolate spread over two caramel-flavored rice cakes.

4. Trail mix
Mix one tablespoon each of dark and golden raisins with a quarter cup of dried apricots and a tablespoon of almond slivers for a low-cal trail mix.

5. Nachos
Sprinkle one tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese over a dozen baked tortilla chips and melt under the broiler. Add two tablespoons of salsa.

6. Mini S'more
Put two marshmallows and a small piece of dark chocolate on top of a graham cracker and heat in the microwave until melted.

7. Pita and hummus
Cut a piece of whole-wheat pita bread into wedges and toast. Top each piece with one tablespoon of garlic or red-pepper hummus

8. Melon sundae
Combine a half-cup each of cantaloupe and honeydew melon slices. Mix in a large spoonful of plain low-fat yogurt and two teaspoons of honey.

9. Frozen yogurt
Top two small scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt with a tablespoon of heated chocolate syrup (optional).

10. Quesadilla
Sprinkle a quarter-cup of reduced-fat cheddar cheese over half of a six-inch tortilla. Add a tablespoon of salsa and a tablespoon of chopped scallions; fold in half and heat in the microwave until the cheese is melted.

11. Peanut butter and fruit
Cut an apple into four wedges and spread a quarter teaspoon of low-fat peanut butter over each wedge.

12. Smoothie
Blend a cup of vanilla soymilk with half a banana and half a cup of strawberries.

13. Granola
Sprinkle a tablespoon of granola over a scoop of plain low-fat or frozen yogurt and add a teaspoon of molasses.

14. Tuna melt
Put a quarter-cup of canned tuna and a slice of low-fat cheese on a slice of whole-wheat bread. Broil and top with chopped tomato.

15. Chickpea salad
Combine a half-cup of chickpeas with a chopped tomato, half a tablespoon of olive oil, the juice of half a lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

16. Turkey on an English muffin
Spread one tablespoon of cranberry sauce on half of a whole-wheat English muffin and top with a slice of fat-free turkey breast. Heat in the microwave for one minute.

17. Raisin bread and apple butter
Spread a thick layer of apple butter over a slice of raisin bread and sprinkle with cinnamon.

18. Cereal bar and honey
Spread a teaspoon of honey onto a low-fat fruit-flavored cereal bar.

19. Crackers and juice
Have approximately seven whole-wheat crackers with a cup of vegetable juice cocktail.

20. Mini bagel melt
Spread a tablespoon of low-fat ricotta cheese over a whole-wheat mini bagel and broil. Sprinkle with fresh chives.

love these ideas, apryl [and glad to see you back!]. i usually take some cut up red pepper and dip into some hummus. about 2 tbs total.

or dip a pretzel into some peanut butter [carefully measured!!!]

MY old standby: some beef jerky...

oh. and about 1/2 cup of cottage cheese with a couple of teaspoons of fruit-only preserves. a real treat!

I have this for breakfast often. 2 Fat free Eggo waffles at 40 calories each. 2 TBS of FF cream cheese at 35 calories and 2 TBS of SF jame at 20 calories=135 calories It is really delicious!

karefree... let me get on my soapbox early in the day. don't forget to eat protein!!! that wonderful breakfast, as yummy and LF and low cal as it was, didn't have a whole lot of protein, and you need it to stabilize your blood sugar and keep you going!

ok. jumping off soapbox now!!!!

jiffypop, I think I am making up for the lack of protein with lunch. I am having leftover lasagna made with Wal-Marts extra lean ground beef. It is yummy and chock full of the meat.

darlin... it's not a 'make up' kind of thing. eating protein at every meal helps stabilize your blood sugar throughout the day. so, if you get a late-afternoon munchie attack, that might [notice i said MIGHT, not DEFINITELY] be a factor.

enjoy the lasagna!!! sounds great!
