What about crackers or oat/rice cakes with peanut butter, slice of ham or cheese etc... what about a salad or raw cabbage broccoli or cauliflower. Soup is definatley a good idea, pea and ham soup is good on protein, maybe plain greek yoghurt (I like greek yoghurt on homemade scones instead of cream)
I like to keep my snacks around 100 calories. Besides fruit and nuts, sometimes I eat half a nut butter sandwich or a Balance or Zone bar. A cup of soup is around 100 cal. and is filling. A glass of milk, or a cup of coffee with milk and sugar if I'm filling tired, does the trick, too. Food Should Taste So Good chips are delicious, I have to watch my carbs, though, or they can make me feel hungrier. A hard boiled egg comes in its own wrapper. Some people like veggies and dips. Baked beans in a small can can stave off hunger as can a hummus 1/2 sandwich. On my nut butter sandwiches I sometimes put jam and fruit like bananas, raisins, pineapple, or any dried fruit, and eat it eat with a carrot or celery or cucumber stick.

I like to eat 6 small meals a day instead of 2-3 big ones & it certainly helps me lose lbs, but I'm having trouble thinking of snacks to pack for my workday. I'm generally good on Breakfasts, lunches, & dinners, but the morning & afternoon snacks get me because sometimes I just don't feel like munching on that sweet fruit & nuts I brought & then because I didn't bring anything else, I get ravenous! I'm looking into things like kale chips, zucchini chips, veggie dips, etc. that are portable, but does anyone else have any ideas? Thanks!!
