what 'kind' of snacker are you? Salty? Sweet? Crunch? Carb-y?......there are a lot of good snacks that are low-cal, low fat and have protein. A good way to find what will be a satisfying lifestyle change for you, is to substitute you fav snacks with a healthier version. Here are some of the things I do.
- greek yogurt - has tons of protein, the plain is only 100 calories
- lavash roll ups - I use Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Lavash (a kind of flat bread) because one serving is only 50 calories and it has 5 grams of protein. Then I use a tbsp of hummus, 1 oz of Cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar, 2 oz of lower sodium deli turkey meat, and a whole bunch of vegetables, roll it up and its delicious! I will eat if for lunch. But to make a snack version, I will just spread a thin layer, like a tbsp of peanut butter on it, a tbsp of raspberry jam, and roll it up. Mmmmm....lavash is my savior right now!
- PROTEIN SHAKES WITH FROZEN FRUIT! These save me! I use frozen fruit so that its cold and thick like a milkshake, only I'm using 8oz fat free milk, a cup of fruit and the protein powder, which varies but the one I use is 100 calories and has 20 grams of protein!
- Yasso Greek Frozen Yogurt bars - raspberry. So good if you want a sweet treat. These are only 60 calories and have 9 grams of protein!
- a serving of nuts - good protein, healthy fats
- veggies - I love veggies, but when I feel like snacking, they don't particularly do the job. But I know I'm more likely to snack on veggies when they are cut into little sticks. So i cut carrot and celery sticks.
.......there are so many more! Check out the recipes on SparkRecipes for low cal snacks!

Chobani yogurt is thick and rich tasting...120 calories (vanilla) to 160 (pineapple).
I also like Triscuit Thin Crisps; they are good when you just want a couple to munch on something. They come in different flavors.
If you like raw veges, salsa is a great lo-cal "dip." emoticon
