string cheese, 1/2 oz almonds, a granny smith apple are some things I bring to work to snack on. Also a cup of green tea in the afternoon is nice.

Fruit or vegetables are my go to. If I need sweet I dip my fruit in greek yogurt. If I need savory I might have a little ranch powder in plain greek yogurt and veggies

Hardboiled eggs are great for this, and you can just throw them in a tupperware and go. I eat mine with spicy mustard.

Also, roasted chickpeas are cheap and easy. Rinse out a can of them, dump on a baking sheet, sprinkle with olive oil and then any spices you want (salt, pepper, cajun seasoning, whatever.) Bake at 425 for 35-50 minutes until they are crunchy. They're FULL of fiber.

I second the airpopped popcorn suggestion!

Here are some of my favorites that clock in at 100 or less:
- 2 Tbsp hummus (cals vary depending on brand or the recipe you use, but generally around 60 or 70) - I use baby carrots and/or celerey sticks and/or cucumber sticks for dippikng
- a medium sliced up apple (80 cals) sprinkled with a teaspoon of packed brown sugar (17 cals) and some cinnamon
- 3 slices of healthy choice ham or turkey (30 or 35 cals) and 1 of those small ultra thin slices of swiss (40 cals) and 1 teaspoon of hellman's chipolte mayo (1 Tablespoon is 40 cals so a teaspoon is only 13.3)
- 1/2 portion of almost any cereal (most of the ones I buy are 120 to 140 cals for a full serving) with 1/3 cup of fat free milk (30 cals)
- 1 cup of plain puffed kamuth or wheat or rice - basically any puffed, unsweetend grain - this has 50 cals and I have some fresh fruit like berries or grapes along with it - 1/2 cup is 50 cals or less.
I like the taste of the fiber one brownies, but they are quite small. If I have one with a cup of coffee or tea and take little bites between sips, it's a lot more filling than just scarfing one of those little critters down of course.

My favorite lately is Special K granola bar. The dark chocolate one. But it has 110 calories, 4g fiber, 4g protein. I also like to snack on grapes & apples.

For me, best snack under 100 calories would be fresh fruit. If I have one of those "mini" bars or 100 calorie snack packs, I'd probably eat a second... and a third.

The first thing I grab when I need a snack is a piece of fruit.

If I'm still hungry after eating the fruit and also having a glass of water, then I'll have a taco-sized tortilla or one serving of whatever kind of crackers we have on hand.

I also usually have baby carrots on hand for when I need a snack. But when I get a craving, I try to remember to drink my water first, then wait to see if I'm hungry enough for a snack!

Love grapes and pineapple - a cup comes in under 100 calories!

Baby carrots dipped in hot sauce is a winner too.

I'm a big fan of some protein in my snack. Helps keep my blood sugar steady longer. Some favs of mine:
Deli meat w/ mustard (Dijon, brown, whatever you like under 5 cal per teaspoon) in between pieces of romaine lettuce.
1c soup (plenty of veg & protein)
string cheese & celery

A small salad! 2 cups of iceberg is only 15 calories, and top it with 2 TBS of fat free ranch (my fave) which is 50 cals. So for a small side salad for a snack is only 75 calories!!!! Wow!!

Justyna7--I get the bread in any store here in chicago area , there are alot of different kinds under the brand name "Healthy Choice "..Then if you want cheese on the sandwich get Kraft FF american slices at 25 calories a slice, and I fry the egg white in pam ( butter flavor is good ). The sandwich sticks with you for hours, I hope you like it....

A serving on Sunsweet Prunes are a 100 calories and a great source of fiber. They are great in the morning along with a protein bar for breakfast. It keeps you full for a longer period of time. emoticon

I make smoothies for under 100 calories:

1 cup spinach (fresh) 7cals
1 cup frozen berries (look for no sugar added) 70 cals
1 cup ice, cold water
2 packets Splenda sweetner (mine also has 1gram fiber per packet)

TOTAL: 77cals

I added Greek yogurt to mine as well (1/2 cup - 60cal) this morning, but that would put it over. But it's really yummy... and packs 2 full servings of fruits and veggies!

This is a great topic! I am definitely a snacker and would go bananas without variety. In addition to fruit and veggies and almonds and popcorn (also my fave!), here are some of my low calorie (100-200) snacks:

-1-2 oz baked tostitos scoops with 1/4 cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese - bake in oven for 5-10 minutes
-low-fat graham cracker with 1 tsp of peanut butter or nutella
-1/2 cup of low-fat cottage cheese with 3 wasa thin crisps
-1/2 cup fat free ricotta cheese with 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries
-1/2 cup of fat free/sugar free pudding - vanilla, chocolate, white chocolate, or butterscotch - with or without 1 tbsp of cool whip

Some of my favorites:
-Strawberries with low fat Cool Whip
-Special K Sour Cream & Onion Chips
-Dannon 80 cal Greek Yogurt
-100 calorie popcorn bags (Tons in them - my absolute FAV!)

There are more, but I like ones that take me awhile to eat. No point in eating a snack for 100 calories if it's gobbled up in a bite!

Try fruit. If you have 1 serving it will usually keep you below the 100 calorie range.

Hi! ANDREAG89, I agree! For me - protein is the most important thing in a snack.

3oz of cooked shrimp with 2tbsp of cocktail sauce = about 104 calories, and a whopping 18 grams of protein. I buy the precooked frozen ones from the grocery store which works great. Occasionally whole foods has them on sale as well.

14 almonds = about 100 calories

Baby carrots with laughing cow cheese = around 100 calories (depending on how many carrots you have!)

String cheese with grape tomatoes = 105 calories, or less depending on what brand of string cheese

1 wasa cracker with 2oz of tuna fish mixed with mustard, not mayo: 105 cals

2oz Low sodium Boars Head turkey wrapped with lettuce and pickle: 75 cals

Also a cup of chai tea with a half a cup of skim milk is only about 40 cals, and will help with your sweet tooth!

On that note... I think its time for a snack!

I agree about the apple sprinkled with cinnamon.
A ~175 cal snack is an apple with 1 Tbs of nut butter (natural nut butter)
Light string cheese is protein and ~50 - 80 calories.
1 wasa cracker with 1 Tbs of nut butter is a ~120 - 130 calories.

Protein will make you feel fuller longer, so you make sure to put that in the mix.

Snacking works best for me if it includes a protein and no sugar. Most of my snacks are about 150-200 calories. Since you are trying to stick to 100 try these:
A large apple sliced thin and generously sprinkled with cinnamon
A snack baggie filled with sliced raw fennel, green peppers, cukes, or any other non-messy veggie that strikes me.
A slice of low fat Jarlsburg cheese and 2 Wasa rye crackers (ok, a little more than 100 cals, but you can eat just one cracker)
A cup of Trader Joe's Creamy tomato soup sprinkled with basil or butternut squash soup (the low sodium ones).
A small grapefruit peeled like an orange.
1 1/2 oz hamburger (cooked and 95% lean)

A lot of fruits are 50 -100 calories, so 1-2 pieces of fruit are good.
Cherry tomatoes.
Hummus and crackers.

Those are my go to snacks.
