    I typically go for fresh fruit, or canned if no fresh available. Trail mix, pb crackers, pepperoni and cheese sticks, salad.

    I always drink some water before a snack though to make sure I'm not just thirsty and help fill my belly so I don't snack as much.

    Popcorn! I'm trying it with different things mixed in. Lime and pepper; garlic, parmesan, and jalapenos - the world is your oyster.

    I like furikake, dry ranch dressing mix, nutritional yeast.

    Upthread I saw a protest that hummus is full of oil. I agree, which makes it so satiating. It also has protein and fiber.

    Also on the fatty end of the scale are peanut butter, dressings and cheese.

    As a diabetic I do much better with a small snack which is a balance of all three macros. This could be:

    Cheese and crackers
    Celery and peanut butter
    Apple with peanut butter
    Hummus and pita wedges
    Cucumber and ranch dressing

    See? The fatty accompaniment helps balance out the snack. Weigh your portions to keep the calories in line.

    10000 calorie per cake. 9200 exact, but with that writing on the top, could just round it up to 10000. So quarter of a cake is 2500 calories. Enough to fill whole day's calorie allowance lol. Had a quarter of it today.

    strawberries dipped in cream cheese, but I add Stevia to the cream cheese for a little extra sweetness. Taste just like strawberry cheesecake!

    6 oz frozen mango (pop in the microwave for 70 seconds) 90ish calories
    1/2 c rose water 0 calories
    dash powdered cardamom 0 calories
    1/4 c light coconut milk 50ish calories OR 1/3 oz crushed almonds 60ish calories

    if I am good on calories for the day, I'll have both the almonds and the coconut milk

    Celery and carrot sticks with hummus (hummus is made out of garbanzo beans, very healthy fat), I also pack organic rice cakes with almond butter in my golf bag for lunch.

    Are u all aware how Houmus is made ?
    It is full of Oil.

    I am suprised to see so many people mentioning it.

    Are you aware that fat doesn't make you fat?
  • FL_HikerFL_Hiker Posts: 879Member Member Posts: 879Member Member
    Cookies, jelly beans, and poptarts

    I usually chop up some cucumbers & squeeze lemon on top and add a pinch of salt, it’s amazing! Or I’d eat red bell peppers

    Ummm as a chef and also one who is known for his hummus this is completely false. If tahini is what you are referring to then that is not oil it’s a sesame paste. Is it high in fat yes but is it oil no. In certain parts of the Middle East it’s topped with olive oil which is optional but the ingredients for a hummus are chickpeas tahini lemon garlic. That’s it.

    Peanut butter and sliced apple
    Choc chip brioche
    Mixed nuts
    banana
    (the above average 130 calories per snack)

    those are my go to snacks but mostly I eat good sized meals so my need for snacking is minimal - I will always leave room for a few squares of chocolate per day too :smile:
