I like plain greek yogurt (skim) with a stevia packet and vanilla, with one rectangle of graham cracker. Though really I will eat just about anything as a snack, it's just been a process of learning what is a reasonable portion.
I love the idea of pairing a nice tea (5-10 calories) with a snack... Like chai tea along side some pairs sprinkled with cinnamon! A cup of coffee would go nicely with a lot of these as well. Plus adding a drink can help make the snack last longer =)
For those of you who would like to save this and may not know how, there is an option on the left near the bottom that looks like a little heart with a check mark; click that and it will be added to your spark favorites. I just had to figure this out myself. lol
Great article by the way! I definitely want to try watermelon with feta!
This is a wonderful list. I am going to share it with a friend in his mid-70s who is in dire need of nutrition help as an Type II diabetic. This will get him started on a better path. I'll use it for myself as well!
I agree with other people, I would love to print this list as a quick reminder to post on my refrigerator. Also, why can't I save this to my favorites anymore. I have noticed this with other articles, too.
What's up with the griping about it being almost a meal etc? Some people may find those snacks to be quite restrained in comparison to where they are right now. YOU may be close to perfect, but others may find lots of help here. Move on and find another article to gripe about.
This list was great, I'll have to copy it as you can't save to favorites.

I'm not sure why I'm seeing complaints about this list not being "completely totally healthy." They're snack ideas. Some people like a treat now and again and don't want to blow all their calories in order to just have a bit of something sweet or savory." Does anyone really eat 100% totally healthy ALL the time? Their lives must suck, if they do. These are suggestions. You don't NEED to eat them. stop complaining and move on to the next article.
