I'm with Sherylds. Eating when I think I'm not really hungry, but am nowhere near what my body needs for the day, has helped me even out those peaks and valleys. I don't force everything I need for the day, but I have a minimum in my head that seems to prevent me from becoming Cookie Monster when my hunger comes back. Another thing that I try to do is to pair a junkier option with something that's good for me. Ramen is a staple when my stomach is off, but I make it with a serving of two of frozen vegetables tossed in at the end. For Ritz crackers, what about topping them with hummus and vegetables or a bit of cheese and some meat? How about spinach and artichoke dip?
