I wish I could snack on veggies and fruits. I try hard but usually don't. I do love to snack on dill pickles.

Light string cheese and an apple gives me protein and carbs to take away my hunger and give me some afternoon energy.

All kinds of veggies with a little bit a hummus for extra flavor.

In addition to most veggies, I find that air popped popcorn is a great filling under 100 calorie snack. I don't do morning snacks because they tend to make me eat more the rest of the day. I'm just strange like that!

I just ate my snack: a medium banana. My afternoon snack will be a cup of sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. I love to snack on fresh veggies or fruits. They are cheap, easy, and almost always filling and portable. I used to eat KIND bars for my afternoon snack but realized they were encouraging my cravings for sweets and they didn't fill me up as much as an apple so I have cut them out. Saves me money too.

I will never give up!

For an afternoon snack I love to have a handful of carrots, a couple pickles, and a piece of string cheese. It runs at about 100 calories and satisfies my crunchy, salty, savory cravings!

Agree with the hummus. Laughing cow light cheese wedges satisfy a need for creamy dairy, at 35 cals.

I like the green pepper and hummus idea. We are getting in the hummus habit. It's almost always in the fridge now. We like it with carrots, celery, and pita chips. Will have to try the green pepper. I think I have part of one left over in the crisper now....

I cut mini bell peppers in half so they are like scoops and eat them with a quarter cup of hummus. I have read that those two foods are a superfood group and burn more calories when eaten together. What I know for sure is that it is delicious, nutritious and filling!

.5 oz bag of Snyder's pretzels and a wedge of laughing cow cheese. Throw in a 4 oz serving of unsweetened applesauce. Total calories: 50 + 35 + 40 = 125 calories, hardly any fat, but good combo of carb and protein. You'll feel satisfied enough to do what you have to do if you have these on hand and throw the combo into your bag for after the gym or when on the road doing business and you need to eat but can't. I stockpile these and they are handy.

A small pear cut into wedges, microwaved for about 30 seconds and then sprinkled with cinnamon, with a small dollop of Greek yogurt on top...swear it tastes just like hot pie goodness, and clocks in at just about 100-125 calories with some protein and calcium!

Special K Pastry Crisps.....they have several flavors, but the chocolate and the brown sugar cinnamon are the best.

Hard boiled egg with hot sauce
Cheese
frozen grapes (they are actually pretty good)
veggies and hummus

If I feel a craving coming on, I have a lg glass of water and try to wait 10 min. If that doesn't work I try one of these:

- 1/2 c. of frozen grapes
- 1/2 c. of baby carrots with 2 T. of hummus
- an med. sz. apple quartered and 1 T. of peanut butter spread on them.

I have to measure it out before hand so I don't overdo it.
