Always keep frozen vegetables in your freezer, that way when you're hungry for a "snack" you can be eating in minutes AND getting 1, 2 or more of your vegetable servings taken care of at the same time! It's a delicious and satisfying snack with astoundingly few calories, even with a bit of butter added! Cauliflower and baby brussel sprouts are my personal favourites.
Particularly great in the fall and winter when we tend to crave warm food. For a bit of decadence, sprinkle on some parmesan cheese or crumble a bit of lite feta cheese.

I love cereal but I hate the added sugar. I found an awesome cereal: Kashi's Heart to Heart (honey toasted - yum!) w/ only 5g of sugar (perfect). I measure the serving size (3/4 C.) and pour it into a ziplock and have it set out the night before to take with me to snack on the next day at work. 334
If you're a sugar-watcher, it's important to know that natural sugar items will NOT have the word "Sugar" labeled below the Nutritional Facts. You want the good sugers that come naturally from food. You want the labels to be at 5g of sugar or less, and NOT listed in the list of ingredients. Cheers!
Snacks are a great way to refuel. Choose snacks from different food groups - a glass of low-fat milk and a few graham crackers, an apple or celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins, or some dry cereal.
