Try brushing cut veggies with a little garlic oil, S&P, then grill on high heat. They are a great snack.

And the best protein to add to smoothies is tofu. You won't taste it -- it takes on the flavor of whatever you put in your smoothie but adds protein. (you can do that unless you don't like/use soy.)
Example: milk, tofu, frozen banana, cocoa, sweetener, ice cubes
Example: pure fruit juice, tofu, flax oil, ice cubes, frozen fruit (buy fresh and freeze your own)

just some thoughts!

I like to add hidden veggies.
Butternut squash to mac and cheese and burritos.
Grated carrorts or zucchini to chili, sloppy joe, burgers, etc.
As for snacks, I go for fruit, greek yogurt, string cheese, cottage cheese, or hummus with crackers or pretzels.

I couldn't eat raw veggies after having some dental work done.. I steamed carrots, peppers, broccoli, and other favorites until semi soft, then placed them in a jar, added basil, garlic and/or favorite seasonings, added water and kept in fridge. Putting the veggies in pickle juice also worked.

Started Spark-255 lbs size 24/26
Goal- 160 lbs size 16/18
If you can't envision sticking to a diet the rest of your life-then its Not a Good eating Plan.

I don't like the taste of raw veggies, so I boil them and season them with black pepper, salt and whatever spices I can find and it taste so good. That is how I get my veggies in my body. One way that I get them in as well is by blending some raw spinach into any shakes I take, You won"t even taste the spinach. Hope that helps! :)

Thank you. It's been awhile since I tried to lose weight so I have to retrain myself to get into the mind set of what is and what isn't good for me.
Again Thank you.

Hi Kandy4ed,

Snacks don't have to be just veggies and fruit. Nuts, popcorn, string cheese, yogurt, raisins, even a sandwich can be a snack as long as you factor them into your meal plan.

As someone who can't eat raw veggies without a lot of pain, I am wondering what ideas you all might have for snacking. I really like fruit but don't want to just snack on that.
Please share some ideas with me. Thank you. emoticon
