An apple with lots of cinnamon. Eaten slowly, they take a long time to eat and are so wholesome you can feel virtuous too. Also unsalted nuts - walnuts are good for you, though nothing beats that almond crunchiness. I have tiny Tupperware containers (about the size of a small egg) that I fill half way with nuts. emoticon

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.

I was watching the Katey show today and Chris from Extreme makeover was her guest. He said that if you eat almonds the amount the size of your thumb then drink water in 15 minutes you will be full. He has a new book out called "Eat more lose more" he talked about carbohydrate cycling first a low carb day then a high carb day. Wow! Who knew! Linda from bean town

I find that if I buy my raw almonds pre-packaged in 100 calorie bags I am more disciplined. Having a huge quantity of nuts usually equals a binge. Having to open a package and knowing I am committing to another 100 calories helps keep me on track.

I actually have several of them - I keep nuts, mini candy bars, raisins, protein and fiber bars, pretzels, crackers, peanut butter, fruit, water, hard candies, carrots, cereal - granola, etc.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

What a great idea. i always tell myself i should keep a list of available healthy snacks posted inside the cupboard so when i go for something i can see those options instead of searching and making a bad choice.I have sugar free Jello cups (strawberry and orange flavors are only 5 calories each) and sugar free lifesavers. I am not a gum chewer so the sf gum thing doesn't work for me. But I always crave savory comfort foods so I keep on hand Garden Fresh blue tortilla chips and Frog Ranch salsa ( frog ranch has very low sodium!) or some whole grain crackers with laughing cow cheese. A healthy deli turkey or chicken is also great to have on hand. There is a place near me that sells turkey breast deli meat that is not at all processed but cut right off the bone. Don't forget about popcorn. Just be sure to watch your portions emoticon

That emergency snack kit is a great idea. I will have to give the contents a few thoughts. Maybe some trail mix. It is a thought.

emoticon emoticon I need to do this, too! I'm just a grazer at heart. emoticon I like nuts but I tend to overeat. Maybe a homemade trail mix would be good but high in calories, too.

We've seen all kinds of emergency kits from first aid to a cigarette in a test tube for emergency smokes. I got an idea.

I'm putting together some things for an emergency snack attack kit. I need this mostly after 9pm when I tend to eat and, thus, go over my calorie limit for the day. I'm including a couple of motivational sayings and a some notes I took from reading an article on emotional eating. Also, hard candy and juicy fruit gum.

What would you put in your kit?
