I use the celery for fillings a lot --- but didn't think about a cucumber slice as a "cracker" --- good one!
I like to make veggie based snacks too -- but if I'm craving something salty - I tend to go to the 100 cal. microwave popcorns. I also use the mini-bel and WW low cal cheese b/c they are individuals, portable and go with so many things. Love a cheese with some grapes. Love the fat free Lay chips with the cheese spread types. Love apples with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Clementines are so cute and good with a banana -- double fruit and gives me that island/paradise feeling!
For a chocolate craving, I keep the milk chocolate Hersheys chocolate chips on hand --- 1 T is only 70 caloris and I pretend they are the full size kisses and savor each and every one of them --- silly? yes --- works? you betcha!
I also use hot teas to fill me up and when I make the water extra hot, I have to sip and it lasts a long time. I do the same with low cal brothy soups --- and always add a little extra water to make it seem like a whole lot of soup.
Thanks for sharing --- hope mine will spark a new idea for you too!
