One of the healthiest, cheapest, most filling snacks: oatmeal. Instant is *quick*, but do the steel-cut (just make a big batch when you have the time and reheat through the week when you want some) and you'll save BIG. :) Cook the oatmeal without salt or sugar - that way, you can change it up as you want: savoury some of the time, sweet and satisfying with a sprinkle of dried fruit (raisins/apricots/whatever) and brown sugar and/or cinnamon.

Fruit and veggies make great snacks, too - and there are so many to choose from. Stick to whatever is in season, and you'll find some great deals that way.

You CAN do whatever you decide you want to do, so don't let time (or the lack thereof) put you off from taking care of yourself first!

Cheers,
Maya

Celery. I like it with anything. With hommous is also good.
Chia seed. Mix with rice milk and let it swell up. Low cal, very filling, high calcium, etc.
There are LOTS of snack advice threads on SP so please search through existing topics.
all the best,
A

I am in serious need of ideas and assistance here. I am having an issue lately where I am effing starving ALL THE TIME! Guess what that leads to? Eating CRAP! Here's my dilemma: I work full-time and am a full-time college student, so my time is extremely limited. I am in desperate need of ideas for healthy and filling snacks that don't take a lot of time or expense. I'm broke and a terrible cook...and portable is helpful, but not a deal-breaker. Wow...could I be more difficult? Oh wait, yes, yes I can be, as I'm also allergic to mushrooms, not that I think people munch on them for a snack often...

Any ideas or just basic encouragement would be very much appreciated, and it may save my arm or something! Consider it your good deed for the day! There's a reason I'm a fat chick...I love food, in large quantities and of bad quality.
