Default Good snack between meals?

I am trying to eat small snacks between meals because before I started dieting, I would go soooo long without eating a meal, then when I did eat it would be a heavy meal.
I figured small amount of fruit, veggies, unsalted pretzels, rice cake, carrots, box of raisins, not this all together, but does this sound ok? Today I have about 12-15 mini pretzels and a tiny box of raisins for a snack. After I eat dinner tonight I won't have anything, esp after 7.

What does eveyone else have?

I include protein with every snack. I have string cheese with apple or PB2 with celery. Sometimes if I'm rushing out the door, I have Luna Protein bar in cookie dough. I also like a low calorie cracker (I forgot the name but it's only 30 calories of whole grain) with a cottage cheese single and salsa. Or, egg whites and salsa.

I find I am less hungry with big, infrequent meals, so take this ith a grain of salt. If I am munchy and really need more fuel I try to combine a fat and fiber food. Faux pumpkin pie with a cup of canned pumpkin, spices, heavy cream, and a little stevia is excellent. An apple and an ounce of a strongly flavored cheese hits the spot. Kale chips or carrots and some salt and butter are also phenomenal.

But that's just me. I used to eat five or six meals a day but two or three, max, has worked out so much better.

I do eat three snacks and three meals - one snack is always a fruit, another always something with protein (usually cherry tomatoes and/or baby carrots with hummus), and the last is whatever fits into my calorie range (usually popcorn or something like it).

When I pack snacks for my coworkers, it's pretty much cheese and wasa crackers, peanut butter and apple, turkey jerky, a variety of nuts with or without dried fruit, Greek yogurt, or a protein bar.

Popsecret buttered popcorn, 100-calorie bags. It's not like other snacks which are gone in three or four bites. I also spray butter-flavored Pam on it to enhance the butter flavor.

my snack in the morning after breakfast is usually a banana with a coffee-protein shake (1c milk, 1 scoop protein powder, spoon full of instant coffee, pinch of splenda, blender for 30 seconds, delish).

string cheese and/or nuts with another type of fruit or veggie after lunch.

I sometimes have a glass of whole fat milk. Goat's milk is my fav. If I am extra hungry, I will have a hardboiled egg to go with it.

This is me too. If it's your tendancy to eat this way, don't fight it, just modify it!

Look into IF, if you want . I eat 1-2 huge meals a day and love it!
If I am feeling munchy I go for Almonds, Kale chips, cheese, pickles, olives, eggs... One of my favorite things in a piece of cheese rolled around a piece of chicken breast and a pickle . It hits the fat/protein/salty trifecta and keeps me full for a while.

I do well on 1 or 2 meals a day as well. Sometimes one snack per day and sometimes no snack at all.

Doh! How could I have forgotten that? A hardboiled egg with plenty of salt and pepper and some dark chocolate is an excellent, satiating after dinner snack.

I don't really snack, but if I do, I usually have a piece of fruit. I also like hummus with cukes and baby carrots.

I love natural, unsweetened applesauce in those little cups that are only 50 calories. So good and refreshing! I also love powdered peanut butter (pb2) which have way less calories than normal peanut butter (just mix water). That's it. I cannot buy chips or raisins because I tend to indulge in them.

I vary. I love having 1 to 2 BIG meals a day (like stated above), i do feel less hungry then when i eat smaller meals. Then, sometimes, I enjoy a bunch of snacking and tiny meals all day. Other days I do a combination. One big meal and a few small meals, etc. It works for me because its a variety. Some days I just feel hungrier than others, on those days when i eat a big meal then it stops the hunger and I end up only eating another big meal. Other days I dont feel hungry at all so I snack. The busier I am the smaller my meals tend to be.

As for snacks, I love a green apple with some peanut butter. Fills me up every time!

I will also have a smaller salad for a snack.

Strawberries, Oranges. I love fruit.

I had a cup of fruit and a small piece of beef jerky today in-between lunch and dinner. It kept me going for hours!
