What are your fave dieting snacks? low cal/small but sweet/filling but boring?

What are your favorite snacks to have handy when you are dieting?

I have some for a sweet fix, and some for a hunger fix...

- Mini Milk (30 cal)
- Schar's Crackerbread
- Individual portion of Boursin Cheese
- party size packs of chocolate buttons/haribo
- ice lollies
- Chocolate Mousse (not the lovely decadent ones unfortunately)

    I don't snack, but whenever I want a treat, I choose whatever I want then and there. I don't do low cal, filling or boring - my food has to be tasty and appropriately calorie balanced.

    in Uk;
    I quite like salt and vinegar snack a jacks (rice cakes). They have them in a crips bag or as one larger one in a mulitpack.

    A kellogs k bar/ an alpen one. They are about 100 calories or under, quite nice if Ive got a sweet tooth.


    A boiled egg.

    Some low fat humous with cucumber/ celery or carrots.

    Also quite like a lemon moose or chocolate moose on occasion.

    This. Small bites don't really satisfy me in the slightest. I'd rather not bother!

    popcorn, dry cereal, string cheese, veggie dogs, the occasion bag of veggie straws or protein chips. Also, I make desserts that come in at 200 or fewer calories per serving. I just tried making a recipe for apple strudel that comes in at about 100 per. (However, I didn't warm the phyllo to room temperature and it broke when I tried slicing it. I'm sure it'll taste fine, but it's more like apples and dough flakes...)

    Popcorn, pickles, Halo Top, instant oatmeal, Fiber One bars, sugar-free mini Reese cups, sugar-free Werther's hard candies.

    I still enjoy junk food snacks on special occasions, but having lighter-calorie options more frequently helps keep me sane.

    Costco has loads of big boxes/bags of individually wrapped things. I really like the mozzarella singles-- 1 oz of mozz for 70 cals. I also like the guac singles with carrots, the hummus singles with carrots, and individual apple sauces.

    I mix a small portion of vanilla Greek yogurt and some peanut butter until smooth- toss it in a small bowl and sprinkle some mini chocolate chip on top. My go to evening sweet tooth attack is very satisfied.

    100cal nut packs are great to help with the munchies. Coca covered almonds are the bomb!

    For filling snack, I'd have soup, like miso soup, chicken stock with some chicken and veg(no thickening),egg drop soup etc. For sweet, coffee with milk and stevia and vanilla extract. Sorbet made of frozen banana, berry and greet yogurt. I also like roasted seaweed when I want some salty snack.

    Boiled egg
    Raw veggies with hummus
    Crispbread with avocado or cottage cheese, or promite and low-cal cheese
    A piece of fruit
    If I need something sweet- a 100cal cereal bar (I like Kellogg's Special K but I think that's a New Zealand thing)

    I keep boiled eggs in the fridge.Great snack as is,also handy for egg salad,on green salad etc.One of my faves is a sliver of cheese in deli turkey slice roll up.Good with fresh veggie slices on the side,or a portion of bean salad.
    Every thing seems to lead to something else.Bean salad keeps well & adds protein to a salad.Add baked potato,sweet or white & you have a meal.
