I love Greek yogurt. I mix it with granola. I also use it in place of sour crème.

There is a ranch dressing flavored yogurt to put on salads or dip veggies and chips into. You can even put it on baked potato. The brand I use is made by Bolthouse Farms. It is so good! My guests did not have a clue it was not authentic ranch dressing! Only 45 calories for 2Tbsp.

I hate veggies. Well, most of them, anyway.

Airpop popcorn. You can put 1/4c in a large microwave safe mixing bowl and cover it with a plate. Put in microwave on high for 4 minutes or until popping slows. Spray with a buttery spray and sprinkle with freshly ground sea salt.

Green Bean fries- Toss a pound of green beans with olive oil, then roast at 400 degrees, turning once, until as crispy as you like.

Roasted vegetables. I hate veggies, but roasting them caramelizes them and brings out any sugars. You can use carrots, potatoes, onions, cauliflower, brocolli or any other veggies.

Baked tortilla chips and salsa. I buy Mission Extra Thin Tortlla chips and cut 3 of them into wedges or strips, then bake at 350 until crispy (about 10-15 minutes). Serve with Salsa or pica de galla.

Somehow, drinking something warm helps me to feel more satisfied. I will make a cup of flavored coffee (my fav right now is Folgers Caramel Drizzle), adding a tsp of powdered creamer and Equal.To have cold iced coffee during the day, I prepare a couple of cups early in the day and refrigerate, then stir and pour over ice later. An alternative to the coffee is a cup of hot herbal tea. I prefer peppermint for daytime (energizing) and chamomile at night.

Sometimes I just suck it up and tell myself that I can eat 'tomorrow'. I try not to eat after 6pm (my own self-imposed rule. It doesn't matter what time you eat as long as your daily calories are controlled).

Check out Sparkrecipes, too, though I find most of them too high in calories for my liking. Also there are articles about snacking to search out.

I have lost 117# by snacking my weight off. I eat several 100-200 calorie mini-meals daily. Let me know how I can help you. emoticon

Jaynee-Pacific Time Goal reached with 130# loss, 138# total loss

Exercise, eat, track, repeat!!
