    When I need a Low calorie snack that makes me feel full, I go with nuts (carefully measured to the exact calorie I want... Usually 100-1500) or some instant oatmeal (quarter makes a new steel cut one that's 170 calories. Those usually help me feel full.

    Plain greek yogurt (low fat) with some berries or 1% cottage cheese.

    One of my favorite "just need to eat something" choices is about 90 cal of the cottage cheese with some radishes.

    Definitely air popped popcorn + a non calorie fizzy drink. The combo fills me up like crazy! 4.5 cups of popped corn is a LOT for 150 calories.

    Popcorn mini bags (butter light and I like Jolly Time kettle corn when in the mood for sweet)

    Slice of Dave's Killer Bread thin sliced, toasted and spread with mashed avocado with a small fruit (like a cutie) or 2% mozzarella cheese stick

    Dannon Light n Fit Greek, like the one with Coconut Chocolate Bliss add-ins

    A can of tuna, smidgen of mayo, diced celery, salt + pepper. It's pushing it but I think it could work depending on the size of the canned tuna.

    I would probably have some plain greek yogurt with a lot of watermelon or cantaloupe or strawberries. Or slice up a lot of cucumber and tomatoes mix in some lemon juice, pepper, chopped basil and a little bit of mozzarella cheese or cottage cheese.

    For a snack, I like babybel or string cheese since they are packaged to go. Two of them together hits your cal target.

    To get filled up, I steam some veggies and combine with some soup. I usually have some leftover in the fridge or freezer. If the soup is high calorie, I may use less and thin it with some hot water and then mix together with the veggies.

    My go-tos are: half a pb&j sandwich (made with 45 calorie bread, 1/2 serving of pb2 and 1/2 serving of jelly) with 7g of a flavored popcorn
    one scrambled egg and 45 calorie toast
    cheese stick and flavored popcorn
    broccoli and sugar snap peas with salad dressing or dip
    cottage cheese with a quarter to a half serving of good preserves
    dry roasted edamame
    package of cocoa roasted almonds (100 cal) and cheese stick (50 cals.)
    wasa crispbreads with laughing cow cheese wedge and sliced turkey on top

    Maybe 100cal packs of popcorn / kettlecorn. Other times maybe yogurt or jerky or raw veggies.

    Whatever it is, it needs 20 - 30 minutes "settling" time from consuming. If i am feeling hungry and need something, and I eat something - almost regardless of what it is - if I can hold off from eating anything else for 25 minutes after a snack, I will usually feel satisfied enough that I don't need to go looking for something else.

    This week it's puffed wheat. I have a bad case of the munchies and I need that dry crunch.

    Shredded kale [raw preferred], chopped up strawberries, chopped up almonds (3 will do, don't need much), whole blueberries, sprinkle with a light bit of fat free feta crumbles, VERY light bit of fat free balsamic vinaigrette - I use a raspberry one.

    Toss a lil to mix well. I'll throw it all in tupperware, shake it up like *kitten*, and eat from that. Grilled chicken optional, but I recommend not usin' oil to cook it (or use a spray, lightly). You honestly don't need a huge amount of any of the other toppings, they all add well into flavoring the salad.

    While I PREFER kale.. Many others would say using many other greens wouldn't work, such as a spring mix. Kale is just my fav for the crunch/bitter compared to the sweet berries.

    Cabbage leaf wraps.

    Take the whole leaf, add some sliced tomato, sauce (thick works best; mustard, gohan desuyo, light or fat free mayo, thousand island, etc), lunch meat, some egg beaters omelette - southwestern is great. Wrap it up. Add another leaf and wrap around the original wrap.

    Simple: two corn tortillas with 1/4 cup homemade refried beans (low fat, using coconut oil for hearty flavor), and a slash of salsa. Rib-sticking, and feels snacky.

    Egg drop soup (I just drop a beaten egg into 2 cups of boiling broth)
    Some lettuce (love arugula) with 30g of goat cheese and some mustard and vinegar.
    Cheese stick/mini babybel with an apple or an orange (the small navel ones, not the huge 150 calorie ones, obviously)

    I think that's pretty much the only combinations that work for me for less than 150 calories.
