I like to snack on trail mix. What I do is take about 1/4 cup - put it in a bowl and eat it very slowly. Taking each nut and chewing it very thoroughly. This takes time of course - but by the time I'm finished my "craving" is done and I've only eating a few calories.
I love hummus with whole wheat pita (I like to toast my own) or carrots/peppers. Greek yogurt with a crushed up crunchy granola bar. It's a little high in calories, but so good and healthy. I also like apples and nuts. Yum!
I like taking some pumpkin puree (hey, it's in season!) and adding cinnamon, nutmeg, etc, vanilla, sweetener (I use stevia) and warming it in the microwave. Sometimes I'll add a little sliver off the stick of butter.
I actually have some of this with breakfast lately, and various other times of day if I desire it. I've been very into squash this winter, lol.
Quaker true delights, rice snacks different flavors, 60 cals for sweet flavors 70 cals for savoury flavors.. Kelloggs Fiber plus bars,120-130 cals per bar per flavor. Also no sugar added jello. pretty good when mixed with flavored yogurt

Peanut or almond butter on fruit Graham crackers in yogurt Baked apple with sprinkle of cinnamon and chopped walnuts baked Home baked muffins or cookies that are lower in calories Whole grain toast with a little butter and cinnamon sugar
A few almonds or a handful of pistachios will often do the trick for me. Something about the chewing (crunching!) seems to satisfy. When I have to have sweets, I try to save some calories, carbs etc for the end of the day and treat myself to frozen yogurt.
