I buy the big containers of grapes (1 red and 1 green) at Costco then come home and separate them into freezer bags. They're GREAT for snacks mid-afternoon when I get the sweet tooth and, being frozen, they take a little longer to eat. They don't freeze solid like an ice cube, more like a hard slush. 150grams is right about 105 calories.
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.
