Other thoughts:

-- sometimes I just measure out a tbsp or tsp of nut butter etc. and eat it straight from the measuring spoon along with whatever else I'm eating (such as an apple or banana).... Can't get lazier or easier than that. You can do the same thing with any dressing- fill the measuring spoon and dip the veggie in it.
-- if you like chocolate, try adding cocoa powder to things like yoghurt or or peanut butter.
-- sometimes I take some vegan deli slices (like Tofurky, which looks and works like turkey slices except they have a wide variety of flavors, 100 calories for 5 thin slices) and spread with mustard and maybe wrap with lettuce. Don't know if this works with meat, but I also freeze the slices in convenient portions and will eat it warmed up in the toaster oven or straight from the freezer as a high protein snack (100'calories for Tofurky slices is usually 13 grams of protein or more).
-- I like hummus with small celery sticks or small rice crackers. Now they have single serve hummus available also, although the calorie count is usually closer to 150. No reason not to save some of it for another day, though, if you insist on 100 calories.
-- cinnamon is very tasty on apple or banana. Other spices likewise. Can't imagine why anybody would limit the amount of apple... I don't think eating a full apple ever made someone overweight!
-- I can't eat dairy yoghurt, but if I get non-dairy that is low on protein (such as based on almond milk), I add some tasty protein powder. I'll add protein powder to non-dairy pudding also. If you're making instant pudding from a mix -- you can always just divide the powder into portions and seal in small plastic bags or small containers. Then you can mix up a single portion for yourself easily. More labor-intensive but avoids the "gotta eat it up before it spoils" syndrome. By the way, blended tofu can be used to make a very instant pudding. So can chia seed. A personal blender is handy for making one-person servings of such things.

Seyton84-- the easiest way to measure nut and seed and peanut butters is to use a scale. Then you can just tare the base (for example, celery or apple or banana or bread) and then use a knife to spread the butter. That makes it easy to get every bit off the knife (you can even include the knife in the tare if you want to lick it clean...). I have a cheap little electronic scale set to grams and it works great for this. I can easily build a sandwich on it also, just taring before adding the next item. Quick, too, easy to record anything that isn't already measured by the piece. I also use the scale to make little bags of stuff in pre-measured portions (popcorn, nuts, seeds, cereal, fruit for freeze-and-eat, etc.). I just stick a piece of masking tape on the bag with the weight marked. Can tare with an empty bag and then weigh assembly line style.

These are all well and good but please remember that ANY low fat dairy product uses palm oil and the use of palm oil is destroying the habitat of orangs and sun bears in the wild. Eating whole dairy products doesn't add that many calories, is better for you and reduces the amount of palm oil being used in the world. Please read package labels and look out for palm oil hidden in the ingredients.

These all look good, but I wish they would make the pictures a little more accurate to fit the suggestions.

I'm addicted to the No Pudge Brownies. .easy to make and you can do tons of variations. Agree with a lot of folks on here..most pictures do not correlate to the portion size or the item in general.

I have to add my dismay that the photos do NOT show a 100-calorie portion. A Portion Guide slideshow should include photos of the precise items!! Many folks are visual, and when they opt for these snacks, their brains will register the disconnect between the lovely photos and what is in front of them... very discouraging, to say the least, even though the portions may be quite satisfying. Why fool us???

Like others here, I do wish the pictures reflected the actual portions and true calorie count. I don't think SparkPeople is doing us a favor with pictures in slideshows and recipes that exaggerate the amount of food we can get . The fact is that a lot of us got where we are because we over-estimated portion size, and we need to re-educate ourselves!

The celery and peanut butter idea is great BUT 1 tablespoon could NEVER work with 5 ribs celery. The picture showed a small piece of celery and probably the whole tablespoon of peanut butter.
Could the pictures please be realistic!

LOVE cottage cheese and fruit. Larger portions than are shown here are sometimes a breakfast or lunch for me.

I have discovered that adding a teaspoon of unsweetened cacao powder to my sweetened low-fat fruit yogurt is delicious. I especially like cacao added to raspberry greek yogurt.
