Default Snacks for SB Newbie

Hi Everyone!!
I am starting the South Beach diet in the next couple of days. I am confident that it is the right move for me, but I have a concern. I know that if I donít have enough variety, I will stray off the South Beach path.

I am worried about snacks. I think I have enough variety for meals, but snacks are another story. I usually have fruit for my snacks, but I canít do that for awhile. Although I like vegetables, I donít like to eat them that often, and I find I get hungry quickly.

Does anyone have any good snack recommendations for me? I am not fancy in the kitchen, so they would have to be simple.

Thanks much!!

Try having a protein with a vegetable for your snack, such as cherry tomatoes with a piece of cheese, or raw veggies dipped in plain yogurt. Roasted chickpeas are a favorite of mine, and they really help chase those hunger pangs away.

I do turkey pepperoni crisps - take some pepperoni, put on paper plate, and microwave for 20 seconds. They crisp up a little bit and it hits the spot when you want something warm to munch. Of course, you can always snack on them cold too.

I also snack on:
V8 juice
string cheese
very small portions of lunch/dinner items
yogurt
cottage cheese

I double reccommend the turkey pepperoni crisps...quite tasty, even my teenage son eats them for an after school snack.

Looks like lots of great ideas. I'd add that I'm not a veggie fan either and found it really helps to get my servings in if I have them for snacks too. I discovered that roasting them makes pretty much any veggie tastier IMO and I am a huge fan of green bean "fries."
