My go-to crunchy snack is carrots, but that's obviously a vegetable. :)

Other than that, I get a very satisfying crunch from pickles, and occasionally those mini rice cakes. (Ranch or cheddar are good savory flavors, and caramel is good when I want something sweet.)

I like Kashi pita chips, found in the cracker aisle. I am now eating the zesty salsa version. 11 chips for 120 calories. Very dense and filling. Great to pair with a healthy dip.

I can and I will - watch me!

Depends on the day I'm having. I really enjoy the crunchy nature valley granola bars. I'll eat one as a snack of 90 cals which also hits the sweet spot for me. I enjoy pistachios for my salty craving. I always budget for one crunchy snack in my day because I know I will crave it. Hope this helps. emoticon

My go to crunchy snack is roasted chickpeas. One tablespoon (plain) has just 46 calories, less than a gram of fat, no cholesterol, 2.4 grams of protein, 2.2 grams of fiber and some vitamins. I especially like them because I can change them up however I want and they store well in a plastic baggy for a few days. If you're interested in baking up a batch, this is how I do it www.inthefontofa.com/wiuw-toasted-chickpea

I do either celery with cream cheese or peanut butter. Radishes have a nice crunch. I let mine soak in a bowl of water in frig so they get extra crunchy. Can also put spreads on it. emoticon

I like Vlassic Sweet Gherkins pickles. They have a nice crunch and also satisfy my sweet tooth. About 30 calories for 3 pickles.

I like dried vegetables. When seasoned they are tasty and a little goes a long way.

Apple slices - I love granny smith apples because they are sweet/tart/crisp/crunchy. I slice one up and eat it alone, or with a dollop of peanut butter or a piece of string cheese.

Popcorn - Low fat, low calories, high fiber. 3 cups air popped is 93 calories (watch adding butter and salt). 3 cups oil popped is about 170. You an get creative with toppings - dried parm cheese and garlic, dried ranch, etc. Some people even use cayenne pepper.

Carrot sticks - The ultimate crunch. Try them dipped in a little hummus.

I am a stress eater and find myself reaching for the crunchy stuff - particularly pretzels - when I need to calm myself down at work. Getting up for a quick walk or drinking ice water doesn't always help - it's like I need to crunch something in my mouth to relax. Can't chew gum due to dental work...and too many veggies cause gastric issues that are embarrassing when you have a cube mate(!) - - - so I'm looking for ideas for crunchy snacks that won't blow the calorie budget.
Thank you!
