I mix low fat cottage cheese with stevia, cinnamon, and Mrs. Butters worth seasoning. Tastes just like cheesecake!

I like string cheese @ 90 calories each. Or, when in season, I love clementines, a small orange that's easy to peel and has no or few seeds. Very sweet! Otherwise, an apple.

Nonfat Greek yogurt is awesome. I like Chobani...or really, anything but Dannon Oikos (it dioesn't taste like real Greek yogurt to me, but the other brands I've tried have been good, including the Yoplait Greek yogurt). Fruit flavors are good, or vanilla with honey. You can put it in the freezer and make a frozen treat with it (if it gets too hard, take it back out and stick it in the fridge until it's soft enough to eat again). Weight Watchers frozen Greek yogurt is good too, but expensive (which is why I've started putting regular Greek yogurt in the freezer).

I like the prepackaged apple slices and caramel. They are around 100 calories each. They have carrots and ranch dip as well.

I like sun dried tomatoes. Not the ones in oil though. It makes me feel like I'm eating pizza. 1 is five calories and I usually just snack on 10.

Also, jerkey is pretty good. I just got some salmon jerkey but I haven't tried it yet. I watch to make sure the rest of the day isn't so sodium-laden. Balance it out.

Frozen blueberries with a dollop of yogurt on top. I don't even wait for them to thaw cuz I like to suck on them but by the time I finish, they are usually soft.

I cook all my meals from scratch, most snacks too. But "no prep" is what I thought we were referring to. If I have run out of all my snacks that I have made...the almonds do the trick. Since they are pre-packaged and I am eating them in the car on the way to work...NO temptation to take more!
Another easy snack with a little prep is half of a sweet potato mixed with 1/2 container greek vanilla yogurt with a sprinkle of cinnamon...tastes just like a delicious pudding with no added sugar and under 100 calories.

carrot batons with 1tbsp hummous or wholenut sugar free crunchy peanut butter
3 or 4 seafood sticks with 1 tbsp salsa
1 hard-boiled egg
1 slice ready sliced cheese(not processed) with a tomato
30g dried fruit
30g nuts & seeds
any fresh fruit (I like a small banana as a 4pm snack as it keeps me going till dinner)
1/2 an avocado with lemon juice & black pepper
1/2 a sugar free protein bar
2 plain cookies or 2 crispbreads(ryvita with pumpkin seeds is nice)
a yogurt
a fruit smoothie (zap any 1/2 cup soft fruit with 4 oz orange or apple juice - I make ahead and keep in the fridge)
1 small cup microwave popcorn


I'm trying to stick with real food as I find snackpacks just make me want to eat more junk. If I'm out during the day I prepare the night before so I always have a selection of snacks with me to stop me cheating. If I miss lunch when I'm out and don't have time to stop I will have a whole protein bar (not a dieters meal bar) as I need the protein - 20g average (gastric bypass), find them in body building supplements - usually sugar free but check.

If you want to spend extra money (which I don't), you can always get the fruits and veggies that are cut up already at the grocery store. They have sliced apples in vacuum sealed bags. You can get fruit cut up from dole or whomever in vacuum sealed containers. Most come in the juice rather than syrup. Baby carrots already come ready.

I prefer not to be lazy because I make my food prep fun. I can get my organics and I can also control what is in the container. Sometimes convenience isn't all that healthy and it is a whole heck of a lot more expensive. The cut up celery in the small containers is 3X more in cost than picking up celery that you may have to do a little more work on.

i also don't trust the 100 calorie packs. They are filled with stuff I don't need.

Never had the hazelnut butter just the almond butter that you crank out yourself from wholefoods.
I like a tsp of almond butter by itself or with apple slices as a snack.

There are some awesome ideas here that I'd never have thought of.

My favourite snacks right now are grapes, air popped popcorn (tiny bit of prep needed but I make a lot at once and portion it out), and the light Babybel cheese rounds that have been mentioned. YUM.


I won't get what I wish for, I'll get what I work for.

I looove greek yogurt with honey. It's so tasty! If you add frozen pomegranate seeds on top it makes it even more tantalizing. Also, I love melon. You can eat a lot with very few calories because it is mostly water. Frozen grapes are also great for something a little different. Also love low fat mozz. string cheese and edamame!
