I love caramel rice cakes! Fruit, and raw veggies like carrots and celery are good. One of my new favorites is sun dried tomatoes! Pretzels with mustard are great when you want something salty. I found a raspberry wassabi mustard thats to die for! also have come up with a low fat apple sauce cake thats great going to post it on my hubpage tomorrow. look for it at
god i hate rice cakes. seriously they make great frisbees and doorstops but that's about it
if i want a snack i'll enjoy an apple. but i slice it and have a tablespoon of peanut butter with it. or slice a whole cucumber and put salt and pepper on it and a sprinkle of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. a banana, sunflower seeds or natural almonds or pistachios are fun too.
mmmmmmm caramel rice cakes!
i like cinnamon sugar toast with coconut oil instead of butter. sort of good, except the sugar. which could be switched with stevia easily!
hmm...my son LOVES hummus and pita chips.
is sushi healthy? i love it.
they have a divine trail mix at target with chocolate covered coffee beans, cashews, yogurt raisins, pretzels, i could go on. *drools*
wow that sounds great. Love pita chips and hummus! I am really trying to watch my fat intake so am being very careful some hummus is great but some hummus has so much fat its not funny! I think it all has to due with how much oil is added to the hummus. It's best if you make hummus your self! You can control what goes into it I always use of chick peas, lemon juice, roasted red peppers, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and a few garlic gloves toss it in the blender and you have beautiful hummus!
Hunh. You would start this thread right after my midnight monster bowl full of Breyer's cherry vanilla ice cream with a complete banana and a double fistful of grapes to boot.
Dang. Forgot to add the Smucker's caramel topping...
My favorite healthy snacks are nuts (usually either peanuts or pecans and almonds which I roast myself) and sweetened dried cranberries.
Yum love dried cranberries I am sure I could make a low fat trail mix that could be both sweet and salty. I am really craving salty things today! Any other ideals?
Yummy...has anyone roasted pumpkin seeds...crunchy & hot, natural & good for you! Keep the snacks healthy and you'll never have to take that afternoon nap
One of my favorite healthy snacks is a mini-salad of chopped apple or pear, raisins, grapes, yogurt, and walnuts.
I would say any form of fruit, such as apples, pears, bananas, peaches, grapes and many others.
watermelon and melons hehe, it makes you feel full, but not gaining weight, plus they are easily digested
Nuts - I love them in all forms, EXCEPT the ones on religious forums that is!
One word.. fudge
It has all the essential sugars and chocolates required for a happy state of mental health
I like a soft boiled egg with a slice of buttered toast. It has the right mix of fats, carbohydrates and proteins to keep me feeling good. Otherwise, fruit - fresh or dried, is my favorite.
Banana with natural peanut butter.
Sweet potato stix. Soo yummy. Cut sweet potato into sticks, bake at 400 until golden brown with a little olive oil, sprinkle on cinnamon.
Natural apple sauce.
Greek yogurt with raisins, peanuts, and blueberries is probably my favorite.
you can puree a LOT of different kinds of veggies and such and bake them in your original foods.. (especially good for your kids who wont know) I like macaroni and cheese and I found a different way of making it by replacing the noodles with whole wheat noodles and putting them in the original box so my son thinks hes getting the real deal lo... then I either use the cheese it came with or I make my own home made cheese... you can make all kinds of treats with vegetable puree in them just a matter of experimenting... so yummy!!
Love the pickle ideal ...yeah kinda high in salt but it tales aways the craving for things like chips and high fat snack items. I guess it could also take sweet cravings out too. But sometimes you just really want something sweet.! If you want something sweet I created a really good apple sauce cake recipe and it is delicious is on my hub.
Raw almonds, pumpkin seeds, cottage cheese and banana, a heaping tablespoon of chunky peanut butter, Campbell's Alphabet Vegetable soup.
My friend participated in a boot camp a couple years ago and dropped 6 sizes (or something like that). I don't have the self-motivation to do a hardcore exercise regimen like she did, but I asked her what kinds of things she snacked on. Two specific things she mentioned:
1) Trader Joe's Soy & Flax Seed tortilla chips. They're really yummy, and not too high in sodium
2) Snyder's Lightly Salted Multigrain Pretzel Sticks
I've also tried raw almonds, dried cherries, low-fat Babybel cheese, and Kashi Cherry Dark Chocolate chewy granola bars. I'm still looking for a wider rotation of snacks. I quickly tire of eating the same things.
I love the combination of sweet, creamy, fruity yogurt with crunchy granola complete with dried fruits, grains, and mixed nuts. Protein, dairy, whole grains, fruits, and great taste...You just can't go wrong.
Red pepper hummus and pita bread or broccoli, asparagus, etc.
I avoid usually the dairy as snacks as cheese, and even yogurt can build up the fat. Instead if I want milk I drink Almond Milk...it's delicious and 40-60 calories a glass with minimum fat. It also tastes awesome in smoothies. Egg whites are yummy too.
A great idea that my doctor told me about.. maybe high in salt.. are pickles and olives. I have a terrible sweet tooth and she said one way to deal with sweet cravings is to eat something sour. I tried it and it worked!
Sushi! gotta love some healthy sushi. and let me see I always love those veggie trays. and the ranch flavored quaker rice cakes
sliced bananas topped with honey, cinnamon and milk
peeled apple slices baked with cinnamon and brown sugar
mixed nuts (of the food variety) lol
yogurt topping on fruit with granola
