I love cherry tomatoes with cracked black pepper, or sometimes some broccolini added in as well. Yum!

and apple dipped in peanut butter is always good and filling. I also enjoy a sweet potato with a little earth balance.

I make a really good fruit salad that is my staple throughout the day. I chop up d'Anjou or Bartlett pears, Pink Lady apples, Red Navel oranges, mix with lots of lime juice and some unfrozen chopped mango, and I'll serve it sometimes mixed with a handful of roasted almonds. Other fruits that I occasionally mix in: kiwi, strawberry, blueberry. I add only fruits that are my favorites, rather than forcing myself to eat all those "usual fruit salad suspects" such as cantelope, which I don't like as much. This fruit salad is sweet, with a tangy lime kick to it, and the roasted almonds are a great addition.

When I am trying to lose weight, I keep a pot of vegetable soup in the fridge and whenever I am hungry I heat up a big bowl. It only has 60 calories and is very filling. Keeps me satisfied until dinner. (or until bed. This is often my nighttime snack.)

For a sweet indulgence, cut up a banana, raisins, crumble fresh granola, topped with maple syrup or agave nectar (about a teaspoon). This is satisfying for any sweet tooth. It's yummy, nutritious, and not a lot of calories.

I like fruit, nuts, homemade trail mix, homemade smoothies, Food Should Taste Good chips, or half a peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter sandwich, sometimes with sliced bananas on it. Sheffa Snack Mix is good, if you know were to find it. Half a baked bean sandwich is good, too. Any leftovers you might like are quick to fix. Celery stuffed with a nut butter is good, or you can have a few olives.

If you don't have a cookbook that gives good recipes for trail mix or smoothies, you can always google them.

With all the food, but especially with the nuts, olives, and dried fruit, keep track of the calorie count. Until I started to use the SparkPeople calorie counter, I wasn't losing any weight, even though I THOUGHT I knew how many calories I was eating. I think the peanut butter and banana sandwiches were creeping up on me. emoticon

The snacks I most often pack to work are fruit, veggies and dip, nuts and seeds, crackers with nut butter and a little homemade jam. I also have a box of plain oatmeal in my desk, along with a container with raisins and another with spices, for when I get don't have anything else.

I need to try the sweet potato though. I love sweet potato.

Hummus (2 tablespoons) with avocado (1/4) on a sandwich thin is or of my favorites. Another easy snack is a sweet potatoe...all you have to do is cook it in your microwave for 6 mins and add whatever you like. Personally, II add earth balance butter (1 tblspn), salt, pepper, tbspoon of walnuts, and drizzle a teaspoon of maple syrup or agave on top). I also enjoy roasted veggies!!

Snap peas! They are especially good when I know I'm not going to eat mindfully and just chomp away; they are good at airports and on airplanes for stress crunching one after the other; they are good when I'm making supper but I can't wait....I vote for water rich vegetables myself when it comes to snacking.

I agree with the others-- hummus, veggies, peanuts, fruit are my stand-bys. Sometimes if I have some time I will make a big batch of muffins, or will make a quesadilla with smashed up black beans and a touch of Daiya cheese. Eat half now, half later. Or sometimes I have oatmeal for a snack.

Most people think of processed food when they think of snacks. Stay as far away from them as possible. Our friends have given you some great ideas. Here are a few more

Veggies and hummus (watch the calorie load with store bought hummus, look for something with no added olive oil or make it yourself. It is so easy to do, plus then you know what is in it.)

Hummus with home made whole wheat pita chips.

For something sweet, Top home made pita chips with a little cinnamon and sugar before baking. (Quick semi-homemade pita chips: buy a whole wheat pita with very low fat, cut into wedges, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, toast in your oven or toaster oven for a few minutes and then allow them to cool in the oven. They will dry out and crisp up in the oven.)

Salsa and low fat baked corn chips, you can make them yourself by purchasing low fat corn tortillas, cut them into wedges, sprinkle with salt or a flavored spice mix, like Cajun seasoning, bake and then cool in oven.)

Salsa over 1/2 a small baked potato.

Fruit is the ultimate fast food in my book. I also like bread with raw crunchy almond butter. Air popped popcorn.

Anyone know any good healthy vegan snacks? I need snacks throughout the day so I don't binge eat at dinnertime, but I'm running out of ideas of what to pack as snacks.
Thanks!
