QUICK AND EASY HEALTHY SNACKS

Does anyone know of delicious healthy snacks that don't take long to put together for when we get a snack attack. We will then have some other ideas instead of grabing the first thing we see in our frig or pantry?
example:
Apple slices with skim mozzarella

I actually love the 100 calorie snack packs that Nabisco makes. I always keep one in my desk drawer at work. I also love yogurt as a snack as well as baby carrots. Those are easy to grab and go!

Fruit and cheese is not that much different than wine (fermented fruit juice) with cheese. The flavors can be really complimentary. I must say I generally prefer a sharp white cheddar with apples, but I could see mozarella. I do find the sharper cheeses are more satisfying in small amounts than the blander, creamier ones.

One of my fave snacks is 1/2 cup sugar-free white chocolate pudding (w/skim milk) and 3/4 cup mixed berries (blueberries, rasberries, blackberries or strawberries). It's really filling and less than 150 calories for the whole thing! I make the pudding by shaking the pudding mix and milk in a quart jar for ~1 minute and then pour it into 4 bowl-sized covered pyrex dishes. Then I just take one out, put fruit on it and voila! I buy the frozen berry mix at TJ's and either add half-frozen berries or use fresh if I have on hand. Fresh peaches and blackberries are also an amazing combination.

I drink 1 cup of Amy's Kitchen Lentil Soup. It is 150 calories and 9 grams of fiber. Not even a pint of my favorite ice cream, Haagen Dazs Butter Pecan could tempt me after I drink this.

rice crackers are salty and crunchy, and only about 10 cals each. Pair that with a low fat goat cheese, hummous or maybe a little smear of an organic fruit preserve or apple butter, you will have a quick and tasty snack, under 100 cals!

I love 100 cal snacks! :)

Those 100 calorie grasshopper cookies are GREAT! They actually taste good and are a cure for a chocolate craving.

Snack choices

If I crave something sweet...
protein bar (a small piece will do fine and some are like chocolate brownies)
wasa cracker with sugar free preserves on it
apple sauce spiked with a small amount of Bragg's apple cider vinegar
prunes, raisens or other dried fruit

If I crave something salty..
beef jerky
turkey jerkey
pistachio nuts
fresh tomato sprinkled with a litte salt

If I crave something crunchy
wasa cracker with sugar free preserves on it
rice cracker
nuts

I know I will eventually have all of these types of cravings and being prepared ahead of time has saved me from eating the wrong things.

If I have a sweet craving, the new 100 calorie packs of quaker rice cakes are GOOOOD. Sometimes when I get snacky it's just because I want to feel full. A really satisfying full feeling is always generated for me by the Kashi Honey Almond flax bars (140 calories, super satisfying).

I make up ziplocs of mixed veggie dippers at the start of the week - celery, daikon slices, baby carrots, grape tomatoes,,,,,anything that lasts reasonably well and crunches. I also make up hummus or some other low-cal (relatively) dip and put some into a small container each day. Having these along is a life saver. Fruit pre-cut or small whole fruit like cherries. Rye crispbreads and a low fat spread like mushroom pate.

The other day I was going through my cupboard, and noticed that I had some whole wheat pitas that I knew i wasn't going to eat before they went bad.

I took them apart , and cut them into triangles and toasted them in the oven.

a couple tastes great with some salsa instead of nachos. I'm probably going to buy another bag of pitas just to make chips out of now.
