I just finished reading an article on Spark titled something like snacks under 200 calories. I tend to drag in the afternoon I need a protein/fiber rich carb combo. This is what I am planning this week:
Cottage cheese on a whole grain cracker
String cheese and 1/2 apple
Tuna salad on whole grain cracker
Veggies and hummus
Slice turkey with pickle
Frozen turkey meatballs

I like my snacks to be smaller and rather complete ... so not protein-only, sugar-only, fat-only, but a good mix. So a fruit with some nuts works for me. Banana and walnuts, figs & almonds ... just a couple hundred calories, along with a cup of herbal tea, and it fills me up and holds me over.

Fruit and half a hot cross bun is my snack.

I usually try to include a piece of fruit (or veggie) and protein for staying power in my snacks. The fruit will often be a banana or apple (the crunch helps wake me up), the protein could be lowfat yogurt / cheese or a hard-boiled egg. Sometimes I opt for veggie sticks and hummus or ranch dressing. Alternatively, you could try edamame...

I'm trying my hand at meal planning for the next week - everything's going well - I've noticed that my energy really drops in the afternoon - usually around 2-3pm - I'm trying to find a good pick me up snack that will boost my energy to get me through the rest of the day and satisfy any hunger until I get home for dinner.

Any ideas?
