I like seaweed as an alternative to chips, you can get it in different flavors and it's really good and good for you. I also like these things called "flaxers", they are crackers made of flax seeds. They have several different flavors and they are high in protein too which helps me feel fuller. I get them at whole foods. And I'm addicted to freeze dried pineapple.
i think of snacks as lower calorie meals. so a meat and cheese rollup or yogurt with fruit/granola or a small portion of curry or stew would be a snack. soup or salad could be a snack. so anything that you usually eat as as a meal could be downsized in portion and called a snack.
have you tried making root vegetables into chips? slice them thin, lightly coat with olive oil and seasonings and bake, turning once. they taste and feel much more like chips, but they are still vegetables.
-google first. ask questions later.

I try to stay away from white flour, and alot of carbs ,so I dont buy crackers. I know some , like Triscut , are whole grain , but they have alot of carbs,also I cant just eat a few .Any suggetstions ?
