Default Favorite Low Point Snacks?

Hi all! I have just seriously started doing WW a couple of weeks ago. There are some low point snacks, like yogurt, fruit, and some veggies, that I like for my snacks. But it's starting to get a little repetitive. What are all of your favorite low point snacks, and your favorite free fruits and veggies to munch on?

Carrots, celery and cucumbers with some homemade ranch dip (with the dry powder type) or garlic salt in nonfat plain greek yogurt. Sometimes I use cottage cheese too if I don't have greek yogurt.

I usually eat fruit in my smoothies - 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup natural applesauce with some water then blended up. Sometimes I add 1/2 cup of greek yogurt and handful of spinach and/or carrots for a complete "meal."

Hummus is another favorite (making it yourself is usually best as you can lower the amount of oil and tahini, if you use tahini that is) and you can make it any flavor you like- roasted red pepper, spinach/artichoke, roasted garlic, etc.

Guacamole or mockamole (although I prefer a 50-50 ratio of avocado and peas or asparagus for mockamole) and you could even add yogurt to bulk it up with protein.

Sorry if I wasn't much help!

I don't usually snack much, but after dinner I usually feel like something sweet or a treat and I'll have coloured popcorn, or one of those little individual packets of chips or choc filled wafers, whatever fits into my points. I love soup too.

I try to keep a few things on hand like the 100-calorie bags of popcorn (3 pts I think), sometimes I'll have baked tostitos scoops (3 pts for 16) with some salsa, some rice chex (3 pts per cup) with unsweetened vanilla almond milk (30 calories per cup), pickles, cheese stick, I like celery with hummus, a piece of sara lee 45 calorie bread (1 pt) with mustard and sara lee low sodium oven roasted chicken breast (1 pt for 2 oz), fiber one brownie (2 pts), packet of plain oatmeal (3 pts) with a banana smashed in it, beef jerky 100 calorie packs (2 pts). That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I've been wanting to roast some garbonzo beans with chili powder and cayenne, but I haven't checked the points yet. I found a recipe for it online and it sounds so simple and a high protein, crunchy snack. I also keep watermelon, grapes and apples around for snacks.

These are my go to snacks when I want something salty or crunchy, and go great with my nightly glass of Cab Be sure to use the deluxe cheese, not the individually wrapped slices. The 2% Kraft Deli Deluxe is 2 points, and Food Lion 2% Deluxe cheese is 1 point. Yum!

Here is the recipe with illustrations, because it's kind of hard to visualize.

Homemade Delish Cheesy Crackers:

Well, I can't post the link. Google low carb cheezits and the recipe will come up from Linda's Low Carb website.

I like the individual 100 calorie guacamoles - 2 pts, great with baby carrots and red pepper strips. I also like 98% fat deli meats - several Boars Head types are power foods (I consider 2 oz a snack portion), a small container (1/2 cup) of ff or Lf cottage cheese (filling), a hardboiled egg, Annie Chung (or Trader Joes) seaweed snacks (1pt), 2 laughing cow lite wedges (1 pt). As you can tell I follow a lower carb approach. I just switched to Simply Filling.

Popcorn.

A lot of people don't know, you can buy the old fashioned popcorn, and pop it in a skillet, with no oil. You just plop in the kernels, slap on the lid, and shake the skillet, so it does not burn. Cheap, and you get an arm workout!

Fat Free Greek yogurt can be flavored in to any kind of dip you favor, to dip veggies in!

I experimented this morning with a cucumber/dill dip and a ranch/bacon dip. Rather than bacon, I used a ham seasoning powder.

Yumm! Baby carrots, cucumber spears!

Personally, I have a fondness for pickled beets!

While not a snack, some Sara Lee, 45 cal bread, pickled beets, lean ham, fat free cream cheese, spritz with cooking spray and grill!

Over the years, as I've gotten better at gardening, and especially herb gardening, seasonings, rather than buy, I raise, and dehydrate, and chop, grind or powder as need be.

Another food I lust for is Buffalo wings! Now, I cook skinless chicken breast, chunk it, add a bit of liquid wink sauce, a bit of wing powder, shake in a bag or sealed bowl. Fat free Blue Cheese dressing, or home made greek yogurt dip and enjoy! With a big ole salad!

There are so many options!

Bake, boil, roast, broast, smoke, crock pot, home can, garden, steam, etc.

The possibilities are endless, it's up to us, to explore, and find our sweet spot!

I love PB2, and at 1 point for 2 Tablespoons I will dip just about anything in it, apple or celery for lunch, a banana for dessert.
I also try to keep roasted veggies on hand, brussel sprouts, carrots, squash etc. to munch on throughout the day.

I don't generally snack. After I eat dinner, I feel like I need chocolate or something sweet. I actually like the different mini bars that WW sells. I am going to try there freezer desserts soon.

I do but I don't make snack portion sized hummus. I make enough to last me a week.

Cooked chickpeas
Lemon juice
Olive oil
Roasted garlic
Roasted red pepper (optional)

Sorry, no measurements, I do it to taste although I do go easy on the olive oil and I keep the food processor running for a longggg time until it's creamy and smooth. I find it just fine without tahini for me.
