I snack for all the wrong reasons and the second I finish eating I regret it big time. These are a few snacks that you don't have to feel guilty about not to mention they can be fun to eat. The snacks are very basic and simple but they will go a long way. Most of the time when I want to snack it is out of pure bordem and nothing more. My number one snack to endulge this feeling, while still being healthy, is frozen raspberries. I eat them a cup at a time and I leave them frozen. The texture is the best part because it takes a long time to eat them. I can eat an entire bag of chips in the time it takes me to eat a cup of frozen raspberries. They are only 60 calories per cup, and they count for 32% of your daily intake of fiber and a whopping 50% of your daily Vitamin C. They have 5 g of sugar but remember it is not simple processed sugar. Not that I reccommend it but I feel a lot better about my health if I over eat rasperries rather than over eating the same amount of candy.
Snack number 2 is snow peas. They are very low in calories and they keep your mouth entertained because they crunch like chips. My family switched from chips to peas and there were no complaints. The only type of chips I actually eat for flavour is salt and vinegar the rest I only eat because 1. The crunch is super satisfying and 2. I see other people eating them and they automatically become more appealing
The last of the group is the fantastic grapefruit. It is one of my favourite fruits behind watermelon. I peel it like an orange then I take my time to peel off the inner skin. I stick my thumbs in the top and bottom where there will be natual holes and rip it in half. From there I pull back the skin piece by piece and eat them in wedges. It keeps me very busy and because I take a bit more time to eat it I actually start to feel full rather than just eating to eat. CAUTION It can be dangerous to eat grapefruit while on certian medications. Make sure it will not effect you before eating it CAUTION
I hope that helps. It helped me to lose a fair amount of weight.
