When my sweet tooth kicks in, instead of gummie candy or licorice I eat prunes. And you will only over eat them once.

Eat the food that God gave us, not the "food" that humans created in laboratories

I think that would depend on the bars you make BECCIE. I wrap my bars individually in saran wrap, and store them in the fridge. Can also store in the freezer if not going to be used within a week. I can take one out of the fridge and it will be fine for the entire day. There is nothing in my bars that will melt. Or even go bad or rancid if not refridgerated. Although, there is a little flax in them... so EVENTUALLY they would go bad.

Speaking of your homemade bars....How do you store them after they have sat? Are they good for traveling? Will they melt in the car?

I want to keep a few in the car, so when I'm out and about, I have them instead of a candy bar.

Hmmm... never heard of any of those bars. I like my CLIF bars when I am on the run. They are fairly clean and mostly organic. But, I always prefer my HOMEMADE bars!

Speaking of snack bars...has anyone here heard of Tanka Bars? They just became available at my food co-op but my next delivery isn't for 2 weeks. They sound really great..buffalo and cranberry, very low calories and lots of protein.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I forgot to mention:
When I'm in a hurry or just a lazy mood I will grab a Bora Bora snack bar. They are organic, clean, nutritious and yummy and have between about 170 and 230 calories. Right now I'm eating Sesame Raisin (190 cals). I'm being lazy.

These are made by a company called Wellements

I also like Boomi Bars. They are all around 200 cals and are just slightly bigger than the Bora Bora bars.
However, Boomi Bars don't claim to be organic.

I love to take a piece of boston lettuce, slice a gala apple and drizzle with all natural peanut butter or almond peanut butter and then roll up and eat as a snack. Love the crunch. :)

Me too Beccie; PB and celery is one of my favs. I also like PB on apple slices but it always turns into a meal...LOL!! LOTS of calories there my oh my!

But such healthy calories; all usable by a healthy, active body...for sure.

I like to make up a big zip-loc bag of mixed raw nuts, seeds and dried fruit. I especially like almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. For dried fruits my favorites are cherries, figs, raisins, cut up prunes, pineapple, unsweetened banana strips, cranberries etc. etc. I just keep the mix in the refrigerator and when I get a case of the munchies I go down and put a quarter of a cup or so...so...so...oh boy would you look at those calories!!? in a little bowl and take it back up to my desk.

Yes, there are a lot of calories there but holy smokes, they are very usable calories.

PS: I also like to mix in some roasted peanuts (I roast them myself very gently because I just don't like raw peanuts)
Never include sugary stuff in this mix like choc. chips or M&Ms. The fruit is sweet enough.

I have to watch the nut portions also. The nutrition tracker is great for that. It lists the calories for 14 walnut halves and I just have 7 and enter it as .50. I think they are just 98 calories or so. If I didn't count them out I'd eat 50! :)

not really like edamame...at least not to me. they are coated in wasabi so they have tons of kick! Forever I thought the peas were dried, but I found out otherwise that they're fried. Luckily my HEB started carrying the roasted wasabi peas as well.

I love having a almonds and walnuts too as a snack, although I go over my calorie limit sometimes.
