As it gets warmer I like to have ice from time to time (ice cream, sorbet...). To have the refreshing treat without the unhealthy sugar, fat and guilt feeling I just freeze pineapple sticks. I take it out of the freezer 30 mins before I start nibbling on it. Refreshing, full of vitamin-C and feeling proud for making a smart choice.
1. cup of tomato soup or broth-based vegetable soup or miso soup 2. half of a mini whole wheat bagel spread with 1/2 tablespoon almond butter 3. 1 oz deli turkey rolled up in a large lettuce, cabbage or chard leaf with mustard (you can have 2 or 3 or these for under 100 calories) 4. 2 cups of baby spinach and a chopped hard boiled egg dressed with lemon juice 5. a handful of snap peas or a sliced up red bell pepper with a tablespoon of hummus 6. Actually, a small (4 oz) glass of red wine is a good snack occasionally.
I go through phases on when I employ this favorite item- it is right around 100 calories and very filling: This is my version of a smoothie: 1. 1 cup of "Carbmaster" yogurt- possibly a regional thing, purchased from Kroger. Has 60 calories. 2. 1-2 containers of the pre-made sugar free jello- this is the secret to making the concoction filling and having a good ice-cream like consistency. 10 calories apiece. 3. A splash of skim milk. 4. A respectable amount of ice - more = thicker.
Other ways to change this up (will add some calories) 1. Add "no sugar added" canned fruit - usually 1/3 to 1/2 a can (approx 50-75 calories) 2. Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder.

If ya need something sweet, Apple butter is very good and sweet. 1 tbp = 35 cal, 10 sodium, carb 8
My new favorite snack is fresh, raw green beans. A cup is about 35 calories and they give that great crunch.
Love so many of these ideas too!

My favorite snack for when the munchies strike and I don't have many calories left are sliced cucumbers sprinkled with garlic salt and cayenne pepper. I love the salty/spicy combination and it's a great substitute for chips without the huge calorie count. It's been a lifesaver for me on a number of occasions!

" Apple Pie" Take one small apple ( about 70 cal's or so ) peel and slice , put in ramekin and spray with butter sprinkle with stevia and apple pie spice or cinnamon . Bake 20 minutes Or til soft --can add cool whip or sf caramel syrup (1 Tablespoon is 45 cals ) . Tastes just like apple pie..
I have raw veggies for my morning snack. I try to cut them up on Sunday night so I just have to grab a container from the fridge in the morning. I find that this way I can get more of a variety (because it's unlikely that I'll eat a full pepper, carrot & celery stalk at one time, so by preparing them for the week, I can split them up). Less than 100 calories and it usually takes me all morning (& sometimes afternoon) to snack my way through it!

Bevita breakfast biscuits Greek Yogurt, plain with honey and My new favorite : Annie Chun's seaweed snacks, a WHOLE package is only 50 calories, a bit high i sodium, but I find that only 1 maybe 2 and any craving I had for a salty snack is cured!! Instead of munching My way thru a whole bag of salt and vinegar potato chips or something. these things are awesome!!
Nitrate-free deli meat (like Applegate Farms) with a little mustard on it rolled up along with some dill pickles is a good snack if you want something salty and low-carb. Cottage cheese with cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of pepper is good too. I also like to spread a tablespoon of sunflower seed butter onto a large stalk of celery if I want something slightly sweet and super crunchy.
i was trying to think of filling but healthy snacks last night when i was close to my calorie limit and ended up eating grape tomatoes with mustard. weird combo but it fixed my craving for a sandwich.

For when your teeth need to crunch and celery just isn't the answer (grin) Tiny Pretzel twists (1/2 oz = 8 twists, about 55 cal); or
1 6" corn tortilla (from package where a serving is 2 tortillas for 100 or so cal) with a quick spritz of butter flavored or olive oil spray, sprinkled with 1 tablespoon of shredded parmesan cheese (about 22 cal), broiled for 3 to 4 min until lightly browned. Yum.

My favorite 100 calorie or less snack is frozen banana! The night before, I cut a banana into several 1/4 in slices. Place cut slices single high on small cookie sheet in freezer and cover with aluminium foil. The next day whenever i get the urge for sweets, I just pop one of the slices. They are good and quench my sweet tooth.
These are my current obsession and beat any protein snack cake hands down!
I don't believe in just a 100cal snack however they are just 94cals.Snacking is a slippery slope for me so I stick to my 4 meals a day and usually have one of these with my protein shake post workout for a perfectly balanced recovery meal.

Fat Free Hot Dog 1 oscar mayer ff hot dog (40 ) 1 hot dog bun (80 ) Onion, mustard, ketchup, relish , tomato...
how I make hummus: In blender.. 1 can of chick peas drained and rinsed, add a bit of olive oil and water to get the consistency you want.. garlic, pepper, a bit of salt, lemon juice to taste. (Some people put tahini paste or peanut butter/almond butter in, too) but, I don't to keep calories down.. Very yummy with celery sticks, veggies, rice cake, etc. Full of protein
I like the laughing cow low fat cheese. The cinnamon is really good spread on cinnamon graham crackers. 1 wedge of cheese with 1 full sheet of graham cracker is less than 100 calories or I spread it on a chocolate chip rice cake.
I also like the garlic laughing cow spread on any kind of cracker. One wedge is 35 calories.
I love fudgesicles and I also like to take a crystal lite drink like grape or fruit punch and put it in the freezer until it is slushy, kind of like a homemade slurpy.
Weight Watchers pepperjack cheese sticks and a couple of crackers is realy good too.
Greek yogurt with frozen fruit mix, you can buy a huge bag at WalMart for $7, sprinkle a tablespoon of low fat granola on top.
For just about 100 calories, I spread a light laughing cow garlic & herb wedge onto a plain or lightly salted rice cake, top with a little bit of lettuce, a 1/2 serving of oscar meyer smoked turkey and a few pickle rounds (the no calorie kind). It tends to satisfy my cravings in the afternoon when I need to get past that 2 p.m. hunger moment.

I really like 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 1/2 cup diced cucumber, 10 halved grape tomatoes, a little sprinkle of garlic powder, smoked paprika, and fresh ground pepper. I have this when I need to get more protein in my day, or I am hungry after supper.

of course the best healthy snacks under 100 calories are fruits and veggies but when you get sick of eating rabbit food you need some other options. I find that when I really need something CRUNCHY and salty hot-air popcorn with just a tiny bit of popcorn salt is very satisfying. I eat Kellogg's Special K protein snack bars - chocolate peanut and they're like eating a candy bar for 110 calories and they are surprisingly filling. At the end of my work day, I get really hungry and they totally satisfy me until dinner time... Also, I used to love sour cream and ranch potato chips and I found a new product, again by Kellogg's that is sour cream and ranch baked cracker chips and you can eat 27 chips for 110 calories. They are made of brown rice and dehydrated potatoes so they're not necessarily healthy but they totally taste like I'm eating my favorite potato chips! I had a coupon for $1.00 off two boxes so I also bought the popcorn chips (30 chips for 120 calories) but I haven't tried those yet.

Be a little cautious with the hummus though - it's like 35 cals and 3 grams of fat per tablespoon. So you can't exactly go scooping up lots of it.
Edamame is a great one! You can get a whole bowlful for 100 cals - quick to prepare, get that salty/chewy thing going on, takes a while and is fun to eat, and get some good nutrition in.

Hummus is an Arab, Israeli or Middle Eastern dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. You can make it yourself in the blender quite easily - that way you can be sure what's in it. I think it's delicious - use it instead of butter, as a dip...
