    Default I need some ideas for healthy snacks

    Ideas needed to replace my chocolate and sweet cravings. I tend to crave sweet things late in the day. Any fruit or veggy ideas? If I have healthy things around I may do better. I gained 2 lbs and want to nip this in the bud. What works for you?

    Default Re: I need some ideas for healthy snacks

    My go to snacks are:
    Mini Babybel Light Cheese
    Carrot sticks
    Celery Sticks - I use a veggie peeler to remove the strings
    Cucumber
    Cherry tomatoes
    Fresh fruit - Strawberries or watermelon in summer, Mandarins, pineapple, grapes
    Rice crackers - we have some really good ones in NZ that don't taste like cardboard.
    A few pieces of dried fruit - apricots, prunes but be careful these are loaded with sugar albeit natural sugar
    1/2 protein bar - again we have a great brand here that is low in sugar and fat but gives a good blat of protein and they taste good too. I have seen a "recipe" for cookies made out of protein bars which are quite good. Basically you cut the bar into eighths and then bake in the oven for a short while. I think the brand is Quest.

    I feel your pain, I am always craving sweet, especially at night. Often a protein bar does the trick. I'm doing Weight Watchers and find the ones lowest in "points" as they seem to range from 4 to 12 or something like that. I get the Costco brand.

    Last night I was home alone and actually considered driving to McDonalds for an ice cream cone. I didn't. But I thought about it.

    I do snack on fruit, but sometimes that just doesn't cut it.

    Have you tried the fudge pops popsicles that have very little calories and are fat free?

    Snacking is still my problem My go to snack is always greek yogurt--sometimes I add a few peanuts and raisins, popcorn is also a go to snack. For fruit I like pineapple. Sometimes a nice cup of hot tea does the trick.

    I like the 45 calories (smaller version) Yasso frozen yogurt bars ,the chocolate fudge is yummy. Babybel with mustard dipping sauce, I find the spicy snacks help alleviate the sweet tooth, 4 caramel mini rice cakes w/pb & jelly sf, half an apple, and nuts, I like the mixed nuts unsalted. Sometimes this works, sometimes not. I also will have a Nonni biscotti 90 calories w/coffee, but that's a rarity as it sets me on a tangent.
    Lately, I like the small cuties oranges and bought sf chocolate chips and take a few of them with the orange, sounds weird but it's sour/sweet and tasty...lol... I have developed weird tastes

    Snacking is a real problem and one I have to be mindful of on almost a daily basis. Sometimes I crave something and if I sit long enough or distract myself, it goes away but now that it's winter and going outside at night is uncomfortable; I force myself to fall asleep even if it's only 9:00 PM, not liking this weather and Florida is looking better and better!
