    Grapes! I always keep some (usually) green grapes in the fridge for times when I just need a little "something".
    I also rely on almonds, I like roasted unsalted, and eat exactly 15 of them for a quick 100 calorie snack as well.
    I have also found a recipe that I make every Sunday and keep in the fridge, 1 c quick oats chopped in your food processor, add 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, and 1 lg banana. I throw in a handful of dried cherries for some extra flavor then pulse and shape into 12 little balls. I often eat one or two before a workout or if Im feeling hungry as they are only 65 calories each and an awesome little snack. I pop 2 of them and 1/2 cup of grapes before a morning workout as well as it is a good boost without a stomach full, enough energy to get through my workout.

    I eat a plant based diet and sometimes i just go for a smoothie, I add in cucumber or zucchini for filler but it's very low on calories and I am usually pretty full afterwards. I'll use 1 date to sweeten it but I'll use frozen berries as a fruit. That really helps me and it's about a liter in total to drink so almost feels like a meal but under 250 cals. Good luck!

    *Plain rice cake with a spread of dayia vegan strawberry cream cheese and top it with slices of bananas. I have at least 2 for a snack.

    * I also have silk vegan yogurt any flavor , add 2tsp of chia seeds and top it off with a banana or berries

    * Last I have air popped popcorn. I have a spray bottle which I use to spray the warm popcorn with olive oil and then I season it with popcorn seasonings.

    Freeze your seedless grapes for a sorbet like treat. Frozen watermelon or banana whizzed in the food processor are great too.

    My favourite quick low cal savoury snack is vegetable sticks dipped in commercial hummous.

    pickled vegetables - just eat them out of the jar!

    If you challenge yourself for a few days to stay away from sugary treats, the cravings will disappear.

    I am on a 1200 calorie restriction for a week and have found that jicama works wonders for me when I’m hunger. It’s differed, low in calories, and a little sweet. I cut it all up into individual pieces to have ready when I’m hungry. Yum!

    Roasted chickpeas with favorite seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil can be made in toaster oven quickly on bake/toast setting at 350-375 degrees. I'm going to try lemon pepper and ranch flavor sometime

    Nuts are satisfying to me but I have to watch portions since the calories can really add up.
    Celery and peanut butter.
    Mary’s crackers... made with nuts and seeds.

    I up my calories to 1300, instead of 1200 as recommended. (I'm ok with slower weight loss). I eat 4 times a day, approx 325 cal per meal.
    Smoothie, fruit, yoghurt, skim millk, protein powder.
    2 boiled eggs, cream cheese, 2 Ryvitas, carrot, celery & apple.
    Small tuna salad, fetta, olives.
    Chicken/fish, mixed veg, quinoa/chickpeas ect

    Its working good so far. No need to 'snack'.

    This may be a crazy answer, but if I'm pretty close to my next meal I try to skip snacking and just pop in a piece of sugar free gum. Sometimes this is all I need to get me through.
