Default Snackage!

Ooooh! a thread just for snacks!

I usually need a snack around 10am & 3pm to keep myself from getting so hungry that I over-eat at lunch or dinner. I enjoy a couple teaspoons of Skippy Natural Peanut Butter & some baby carrots, or an apple, or a handful of raw almonds when I'm jones'n for a snack!

I always prefer something quick & natural- as opposed to anything from the vending machine, or anything "processed."

So how about some more ideas for snackage! ~

What do you mostly reach for when it's snack time?

I prefer a small meal. For example, a slice of dark rye bread (I think 90 calories) with bit of butter (it says that 2 tsp are 70 calories, so let's say 35 calories) and slice of light swiss cheese (60 calories). And some veggies - tomato or cucumber, whatever I have.

Lately my favorite snack has been 1/4 cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. I sweetened with a little Splenda and stir in some cinnamon. Sometimes I top it with an ounce of berries.

Other favorite snacks include:
- oatmeal, oat bran, or any other hot cereal. I like it with 1 tbsp nonfat cream cheese stirred into it.
- La Tortilla low carb wrap (small wrap or 1/2 large wrap) with various fillings (spicy ranchero egg white salad from Trader Joe's, 1/2 can Bumble Tuna Sensations, sardines, smoked trout, one wedge laughing cow cheese and lean deli meat, or 1/4 cup egg beaters fried and refried beans)
- Yogurt Vegetable Salad
- hard-boiled egg
- mini omelet with 1/4 cup egg beaters, laughing cow cheese wedge, and veggies
- protein pancakes
- fruit (whatever is in season)
