I take a good salsa (no HFCS, etc) and mix with vegetarian refried beans to form a dip of desired texture. Then I take and apple and core it and cut into 16 slices. Dip as desired. The apple is so much better than chips. High fiber, very filling, and low calorie.

Top a Van's waffle with ˝ cup part-skim ricotta cheese and a fresh sliced peach for a sweet, creamy combo that is packed with protein to keep you feeling satisfied

Nonfat ricotta cheese with chopped pear and cinnamon
Have a half-cup with pear and cinnamon—the spice helps balance blood sugar, thereby preventing future cravings.

Nut butter apples
Core an apple and slice it from top to bottom to create rings, then spread 1 Tbsp almond butter to create a bread free ‘sandwich,’Apples are full of fiber and contain enzymes that help your body digest food more efficiently. Almond butter provides the protein that makes this snack filling, with an additional bonus of vitamin E and magnesium

1/2 Avocado with stuffed crabmeat 4 ounces crabmeat with mayo on a bed of lettuce about 6 carbs

Yogurt
A carb-friendly snack. Not only is creamy yogurt cool and sweet, it's a great source of calcium, too. Fage 0% Greek Yogurt is the lowest in sugar that I have found.

Pistachios...25 equals 85 calories

Popcorn is one of the healthiest foods anyone can eat. It has protein, minerals and vitamins… and lots of fiber...No Microwave popcorn, get the kernels and pop yourself. Air popper at Walmart $19.99
You'll be surprised to learn you forgot how good real popcorn tastes.
Snacking on popcorn can actually lower cholesterol....It's low calorie, low fat, and high in fiber. Great snack that promotes lower cholesterol levels


Apple
Apples come in so many varieties, it's easy to find the perfect flavor. Choose one small apple at snack time for a serving of fruit that's also a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps prevent cholesterol buildup. 1 small apple 52 calories, 1 medium apple 75 calories

Strawberries and Cottage Cheese
For a snack that mixes a serving of dairy with a serving of fresh fruit, combine 1 cup of strawberries and 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese. The combo provides a boost of vitamin C and calcium to your day and protein.

Cereal
It works for toddlers and for grown-ups! Tote 3/4 cup of Multi Grain Cheerios for a crunchy, fiber-filled treat.

Carrots with Ranch Dressing
For a boost of beta carotene, fiber, and vitamin A, you can't do much better than snacking on 15 baby carrots with 2 tablespoons light ranch dressing. Many supermarkets sell individual snack packs of carrots, too. No more tahn 15 baby carrots or two med size carrots as they are high in sugar content.
with Hummus
Hummus isn't just a fun party dip, it's a great everyday snack option, too. Made from ground garbanzo beans (chick peas), hummus is a flavorful way to get your fiber.

Cucumber slices Cucumber
Due to their extremely high 96% water content, the inside temperature of a cucumber can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the outside air, making them a refreshing, low-calorie food. Plus, they're slim-sational: One whole cucumber equals only 45 calories!

Cucumber lemon-garlic dip
In a bowl combine 1/2 cup plain non fat yogurt, 1 tsp. of lemon juice, 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder and a pinch of salt if desired.....serve with cucumber slices or zucchini slices, blue chips or even put on a small pita wedge.

Chickpea Toss
In a bowl mix 1/4 cup of chopped tomatoes, 1/2 cup of rinsed canned chickpeas, 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, 1 tsp. of red wine vinegar, 1 tsp. of olive oil and a sprinkle of garlic powder and black pepper. Chill. A great snack and filling.

1 CUP OF MIXED BERRIES WITH 70 CALORIES...ADD 2 T OF LOW FAT WHIPPED CREAM FOR A TOTAL OF 90 CALORIES.....

Baked apple with cinnamon

Roasted Apples
Toss unpeeled apple wedges into a little olive oil, pinch of salt and a pinch of thyme. Spread the wedges on a baking sheet 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until tender Serve with turkey, chicken, pork, beef...or as a snack....

When you need a refreshing low-calorie snack, nibble on 1/2 cup of sliced cucumbers for just 8 calories and 2 grams of carb

1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes for just 13 calories and 2 grams of carb

Three strawberries swirled in a tablespoon of fat-free plain Greek yogurt will cost you a total of 20 calories and 4 grams of carb

Creamy meets crunchy when you spread 3 red radishes with 1 tablespoon fat-free cream cheese, then lightly sprinkle them with chives

For a bit of crunch, roll up a single carrot stick in the turkey lunchmeat. A typical 3-inch carrot stick has only 3 calories and less than 1 gram of carb

Kavli Crispy Thin Whole Grain Crisp bread is made from 100 percent whole grain rye flour...17 calories and 4 grams of carb.

Wasa Crisp'n Light.... 7 Grain cracker bread with 20 calories and 4.5 grams of carb per slice.
Canned salmon with capers and lemon on a Wasa Cracker

Turkey and avocado roll-ups
For a no carb, protein rich snack that slows digestion and prevents cravings later on, roll up a sliver of avocado in a slice of organic lean turkey breast. If you like, add mustard for its metabolism-boosting power.
