    I like to eat a small crisp apple or 12 almonds. These really keep me satisfied until my next meal.:drinker:

    Just take popcorn seeds, put about a tablespoon in a bowl, put it in the microwave, and cap it with a plate.
    Boom... 30 calories in A CUP OF POPCORN,
    Feel free to stuff your mouth guiltlessly.
    Make more!
    (and use your non dominant hand while eating so you're more aware of what you've eaten)

    And... ANOTHER UH-mazing snack is peeling and cutting 2 bananas, putting them in the freezer for 2 hrs, putting them in the blender (they'll stick to the sides, just keep pushing them back into the blades) and VIOLA:
    vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free ice cream... made from ONE fruit ingredient.....
    you're welcome...
    have fun!

    Love this.. thank you!!! Great idea, I'll be trying some left handed popcorn & banana ice cream :heart:

    i get a bowl of steamed broccoli, sprinkle a little salt, not much. it is sweet, and the most nutritionally dense food their is.

    Frozen greek yogurt dots are genius! I've gotta try this!
    I really love apple chips. You can get organic baked apple chips from Costco, or make them yourself. Since I often crave both crunchy and sweet snacks, they're perfect for both. 1/2 cup is about 90 calories.

    Frozen greek yogurt dots (just dollop it on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet and freeze)
    Roasted Chickpeas
    Caprese Salad

    When I'm lacking ideas, pinterest is my best friend. Just search "healthy snacks." Use your discretion, though, because some of the recipes that pop up aren't healthy at all.

    baby carrots and soy beans.
  • Proper popcorn???? It's lovely and only 88 calories per bag but tastes like much more. You can get it from Tesco but I'm sure it's available else where, anyway it's fab.

    My go-to is almonds. But I suppose most people would not consider almonds to be low-calorie so not sure if that is what you are looking for.
