Hardboiled eggs are great for this, and you can just throw them in a tupperware and go. I eat mine with spicy mustard.
Also, roasted chickpeas are cheap and easy. Rinse out a can of them, dump on a baking sheet, sprinkle with olive oil and then any spices you want (salt, pepper, cajun seasoning, whatever.) Bake at 425 for 35-50 minutes until they are crunchy. They're FULL of fiber.
Here are some of my favorites that clock in at 100 or less: - 2 Tbsp hummus (cals vary depending on brand or the recipe you use, but generally around 60 or 70) - I use baby carrots and/or celerey sticks and/or cucumber sticks for dippikng - a medium sliced up apple (80 cals) sprinkled with a teaspoon of packed brown sugar (17 cals) and some cinnamon - 3 slices of healthy choice ham or turkey (30 or 35 cals) and 1 of those small ultra thin slices of swiss (40 cals) and 1 teaspoon of hellman's chipolte mayo (1 Tablespoon is 40 cals so a teaspoon is only 13.3) - 1/2 portion of almost any cereal (most of the ones I buy are 120 to 140 cals for a full serving) with 1/3 cup of fat free milk (30 cals) - 1 cup of plain puffed kamuth or wheat or rice - basically any puffed, unsweetend grain - this has 50 cals and I have some fresh fruit like berries or grapes along with it - 1/2 cup is 50 cals or less. I like the taste of the fiber one brownies, but they are quite small. If I have one with a cup of coffee or tea and take little bites between sips, it's a lot more filling than just scarfing one of those little critters down of course.

I'm a big fan of some protein in my snack. Helps keep my blood sugar steady longer. Some favs of mine: Deli meat w/ mustard (Dijon, brown, whatever you like under 5 cal per teaspoon) in between pieces of romaine lettuce. 1c soup (plenty of veg & protein) string cheese & celery

A serving on Sunsweet Prunes are a 100 calories and a great source of fiber. They are great in the morning along with a protein bar for breakfast. It keeps you full for a longer period of time.

1 cup spinach (fresh) 7cals 1 cup frozen berries (look for no sugar added) 70 cals 1 cup ice, cold water 2 packets Splenda sweetner (mine also has 1gram fiber per packet)
I added Greek yogurt to mine as well (1/2 cup - 60cal) this morning, but that would put it over. But it's really yummy... and packs 2 full servings of fruits and veggies!

Some of my favorites: -Strawberries with low fat Cool Whip -Special K Sour Cream & Onion Chips -Dannon 80 cal Greek Yogurt -100 calorie popcorn bags (Tons in them - my absolute FAV!)
There are more, but I like ones that take me awhile to eat. No point in eating a snack for 100 calories if it's gobbled up in a bite!
Try fruit. If you have 1 serving it will usually keep you below the 100 calorie range.

Hi! ANDREAG89, I agree! For me - protein is the most important thing in a snack.
3oz of cooked shrimp with 2tbsp of cocktail sauce = about 104 calories, and a whopping 18 grams of protein. I buy the precooked frozen ones from the grocery store which works great. Occasionally whole foods has them on sale as well.
14 almonds = about 100 calories
Baby carrots with laughing cow cheese = around 100 calories (depending on how many carrots you have!)
String cheese with grape tomatoes = 105 calories, or less depending on what brand of string cheese
1 wasa cracker with 2oz of tuna fish mixed with mustard, not mayo: 105 cals
2oz Low sodium Boars Head turkey wrapped with lettuce and pickle: 75 cals
Also a cup of chai tea with a half a cup of skim milk is only about 40 cals, and will help with your sweet tooth!
On that note... I think its time for a snack!

I agree about the apple sprinkled with cinnamon. A ~175 cal snack is an apple with 1 Tbs of nut butter (natural nut butter) Light string cheese is protein and ~50 - 80 calories. 1 wasa cracker with 1 Tbs of nut butter is a ~120 - 130 calories.
Protein will make you feel fuller longer, so you make sure to put that in the mix.

Snacking works best for me if it includes a protein and no sugar. Most of my snacks are about 150-200 calories. Since you are trying to stick to 100 try these: A large apple sliced thin and generously sprinkled with cinnamon A snack baggie filled with sliced raw fennel, green peppers, cukes, or any other non-messy veggie that strikes me. A slice of low fat Jarlsburg cheese and 2 Wasa rye crackers (ok, a little more than 100 cals, but you can eat just one cracker) A cup of Trader Joe's Creamy tomato soup sprinkled with basil or butternut squash soup (the low sodium ones). A small grapefruit peeled like an orange. 1 1/2 oz hamburger (cooked and 95% lean)
