100 lb. Club - What are you snacking on these days?

09-10-2009, 12:13 PM
Just want to see what healthy snacks you chicks are eating. Just wanted to get different ideas since Im always on the go.

09-10-2009, 12:14 PM
Fruits, veggies, plain popcorn

09-10-2009, 12:31 PM
Laughing Cow Light wedges & rmultigrain rice cakes

Frozen fruit. (Still frozen, not thawed. Peaches, Strawberries, Cherries or the super treat - Pineapple. This is my favorite snack. Being frozen forces me to eat it slowly or face the wrath of an ice cream headache. Eating slowly is a problem for me... so this is key.)

I know you asked for healthy snacks, but my latest favorite isn't exactly healthy per se. My newest craving is for tootsie pops. It takes like 30 minutes to finish just 1 and they are only about 50 calories. I know they are crazy full of sugar but sometimes when you need that something sweet, it's just perfect. Luckily I'm able to limit myself to one a day, but it's a perfect little dessert for me :D

I added a new snack this week, Babybel Mini Babybel Light. I picked some up on sale at the grocery store last week. They are only 40 calories and give me a real pick me up so they have been added to my list of foods. I have been working on expanding that list as I tend to eat the same things over and over.

Fruit, fresh veggies and fat free ranch dressing to dip, hummus and crackers, jello gelatin/sugar free pudding, Edy's frozen fruit bars, pretzel sticks (51 for 110 cal), popcorn, small salad, Kellogg's FiberPlus bars, low fat graham crackers & peanut butter....I can keep going lol :)

Usually fruit (bananas, strawberries, cherry tomatoes)...
Sometimes dairy (but I'm lactose so not often)- string cheese or indiv. cottage cheese cups...
As for brand name stuff, I like 100 cal. packs of popcorn or Blue Diamond natural almonds (Vanilla Bean or Cinammon Brown Sugar flavor are yummy.)

09-11-2009, 01:36 PM
Sweet snack: Kellogg's Fiber Plus Bars (130 cals); Quaker Oats Chocolate Rice Cake 60 cals & spread with 1 tbl cashew butter 90 cals (150 cals); or just fruit - cherries, strawberries, grapes, nectarines are my go-to's.

Savory/Salty Snacks: veggies w/low fat dip; tomato sprinkled w/salt & pepper w/1oz pepper jack & a tsp light mayo; green beans barely boiled in onion soup mix - drain & add 1 tsp butter

edited: I just saw you said "on the go" so the green beans & tomatoes are probably not good traveling snacks :o Sorry..

Strawberry's, Bananas, yogurt (digestive +), Special K bars, apples, pears, celery, carrots, almonds, Digestive health Nut mix, pretzels, grapes (red), string cheese. :)

nuts, dried fruit, popcorn, special k and kashi cereal bars, sometimes I use dry special k cereal as a crunchy snack, cheese sticks.

A good way to make very healthy popcorn if you don't have an air popping machine- buy the bags of kernals that you would use in an air pop machine, just plain popcorn kernals, put some in a brown paper lunch bag, fold the top a couple times and then microwave it until you hear the popping slow or stop just like you would with microwave popcorn. You can then put flavorings on it or eat it plain as you like. Much healthier than even the healthiest of "microwave" popcorn and a ton cheaper too.

For the on the go part I use snack sized ziplocs and preportion my snacks. I put whatever a single serving for me is of my dried fruit or nuts, crackers, etc. in a snack bag then I put a small variety of the nonrefrigerated ones into my purse. The rest I put into larger ziplocs and store the larger ziploc in either the pantry or the fridge depending on the type of snacks it is and then when I want a snack I don't need to worry about how much I can have or anything because I did it all ahead of time. I also keep a cereal bar or 2, a special k protein meal bar and some crystal light single servings in my purse at all times. I am never caught in a situation where I have to either eat something bad for me or go hungry.

that popcorn idea is great. I'm going to do that.

peaches, apples, bananas, V8, crackers (saltines), yogurt, glass of skim milk. A piece of low cal bread toasted spread with a tsp of peanut butter. I'm kind of boring with the snacks!
