One of my favorite snacks I like to have at night when I am working. 2 White cheddar rice cakes, with 1/2 cup of regular cottage cheese. I add about a half tsp. of ranch dressing powder. Gives me a fat, a carb, and a protein! That is part of my 1+1+1 way of eating. YUM!

The "Lett-uce Eat Tuna" is a great idea I often have this for lunch, it is amazingly filling.

Any way to save these as text other than painstakingly copying and pasting each one into a document? I'd love to keep this list handy.

Some good ideas but I thought the hard-boiled eggs looked disgusting. You want to be careful of undercooked eggs!

These are great ideas, I really like the celery and popcorn snacks
