    'Tis true, 'tis true. Not sure why someone thinks it's woo.

    For snacks, I usually go with something in a vegetable. It's larger volume for lower calorie, but then it doesn't stay with me as long, so a piece of cheese with it. I find half a can of beans to be filling, but it's a little over 125 calories. Two Oreo cookies, or four of the thins. Occasionally, a handful of nuts, but I don't find them as filling, others do though.

    String cheese (80 cal) and a piece of fruit
    Greek yogurt (either flavored or plain + jam)
    Almonds and chocolate
    PB and apple or PB toast (definitely weigh the PB, as stated above)
    Or just PB on a spoon, that's good too!

    Boiled egg with Everything Bagel seasoning

    Link of chicken sausage
    SmartFood Caramel & Cheddar Mix Popcorn
    Pastrami (2 oz) and fresh mozzarella (3 ciliegne)
    Trader Joe's Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip with cut veggies

    For a snack i'll usually have either string cheese, an apple, egg, greek yogurt, or a protein shake (also depends on what macro i'm low on for the day.)

    Diamond makes a variety of 100-calorie nut packs. I like the dill pickle cashew or the raw almond/walnut.

    light and fit greek yogurt. I eat it everyday almost for afternoon snack. 12g protein, 80 calories, and probiotics that help my digestive system a ton.

    Dried apricots or dried dates are my sweet fix

    1/2 cup of fat free frozen yogurt (I currently have some strawberry from Food Lion - 100 calories) in a small cake cup cone (20 calories). It's enough to fill the cone.
    A bowl of strawberries and blueberries.
    A bowl of good snacking cereal - apple jacks, cocoa puffs or whatever you like that is pieces that are easy to eat as snacks. No milk, just eat them like peanuts.
    100 calorie popcorn pack.
    A banana and a clementine.
    40 grams of raisins.

    - guacamole packs at Trader Joes (100 calories)
    - Apple with 1/2 TB peanut butter
    - 1 cup of pumpkin almond mil at Trader Joes
    - single serve yogurt

    Apples are a good pick for me since they help me get the sweet crunch and keep me filling full for a bit.

    Fage yogurt also has some options that I like that do the same. :)

    I've been known to house some cookies, because two just doesn't cut it sometimes. :#

    Okay technically come in at 140, but a cup of hot tea and a Fiber One bar. (They have lower calorie ones.)

    Usually an apple or some other fruit and a whey shake.
