Smile Favorite Healthy Snacks

Hey everyone!

I was hoping that we could share some of our favorite healthy/low calorie snacks and give each other some ideas.

Here are some of mine:

1) Fresh Pineapple: This has to be one of my favorite fresh fruits, I don't know why, but I get a lot of joy cutting it up, coring it, weighing it and squeezing out left over skin for the juice.

2) Mott's Unsweetened Apple Sauce Cups: They come in a variety of flavors like pomegranate apple, strawberry kiwi, ect. And they are only around 50 calories for a decent sized cup!

3) Granola Bars: I know these aren't the healthiest snack idea since most are loaded with sugars, but they are great for when your on the go and need to satisfy your sweet tooth. Just recently I have tried the Special K Mocha bars, I find they satisfy my chocolate desire very nicely and are only 90 calories!

4) No sugar added Jell-O: Maybe not the most delicious choice, but at 10 calories a serving, it makes a great snack if you just need something to hold you over until the next meal

Mini-bags of popcorn. I really don't understand why people lump popcorn in with chips and french fries. It's a whole grain, and as long as it's a low fat variety, not at all bad for you.

Six triscuits. The rye or black pepper ones. I actually eat this every morning before exercising, and it's great if it's time for bed and I realize I am under calories and hungry--I need something quick to eat or I won't sleep.

Carrots. A pound of raw carrots has 180 calories.

1 serving graham crackers - 120 calories (2 sheets of crackers) with 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese with a sprinkle of cinnamon mixed in 35 cals for the laughing cow wedge. 155 calories for the whole thing, very filling, and satisfies sweet, creamy and crunchy cravings.


Doing this one day at a time.

I like black cherries for a sweet snack, mozzarella string cheese sticks for a quick snack or a slice of 12 grain bread toasted with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter for a special snack.

I have the same two snacks every day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In the morning I have a quarter cup of unsalted nuts and a light string cheese. In the afternoon I have a package of Kashi granola bars (the crunchy kind that come two to a package) and a light string cheese. I got both of these snack ideas from my dietitian. She gave me a couple more options too, but I like these so much that I never have the others.

- chocolate rice cakes
- applesauce cups
- fudgsicles! (I'm surprised no one mentioned these... they come in 60 or 40 cal options and when I need that chocolate fix these do the trick)
- fruit and yogurt smoothies!

Great ideas, ladies!
