Default Low calorie snacks that will satisfy you until the next meal

When I come home from work I'm ravenous and need something filling until I get dinner ready. Any suggestions?

my favorites are sugar free popsicles, cut up veggies with salsa or dip I make with ff greek yogurt and herbs, or a stick or two of reduced fat string cheese.

I looooove kashi crunchy go lean (150cals) & luna bars (180 cals + filled with a lot of your daily needs!)

Mandarin Oranges w/ fat free cool whip.

Bean dip with multi-grain tortilla chips.

Campbell's Classic Tomato Soup At Hand (30% less sodium)

Laughing Cow cheese with an apple.

WW string cheese (50 cals)

1/4 cup fat-free refried beans on 1 small whole wheat tortilla, 1 oz reduced-fat shredded cheese on top, top with some salsa & another tortilla, and microwave! For a dinner, I'll add some perdue chicken strips.

Popcorn! Airpopped popcorn has SO much volume, calorie-wise.

Raw veggies with some kind of dip (salsa works well) also tend to fill me up well.

Nuke V-8 and chicken broth. Stir in a generous spoon of cottage cheese. The warmth and volume of the soup fills you up and the little protein hit from the cc helps tide you over. Or if you can plan ahead, have a vegetable soup pre-made that just needs a quick re-heat.

bran crispbread and light laughing cow cheese or occassionally goat cheese- nice and crunchy, lots of fiber
raw broccoli (in addition to the crispbread or yoghurt)
sugar free jello
cheeseheads cheese strings
I always carry almonds in my purse so if I get hungry I have options

I like those little 1/2 cup containers of cottage cheese. Only 90 calories but a whopping 12 grams of protein. Very filling and single servings make it a lot more convenient than measuring from a big container.

Small can of salmon/tuna/sardines (80gms). Under 150 cals and the protein will keep you full!

I have the same problem you describe. I haven't found the perfect solution, but what works best for me is to eat 1/4 cup of a snack mix I make myself. Almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dried fruit - currently dried cranberries. I figure my serving size has pretty close to 200 calories. I eat it while driving home. That way, it has a chance to work before I get home and have a melt(ed cheese)down.

Anything with some protein and fiber in it. Even one of the little protein drink packets mixed with water (Tide Me Over are about 30 calories I think). If I am ravenous, I try to eat or drink on the way home so that I'm not raiding the refrigerator or pantry the minute I walk in the door.

I found that 1/2 cup pumpkin, mixed with a spoonful of applesauce, a spoonful of egg whites, a spoonful of whole wheat flour, a spoonful of brown sugar and a sprinkle of semi sweet chocolate chips is pretty satisfying

or the kashi TLC bars which are only 120-140 calories if your looking for something easy
