    So I just made these today. I had a lot of fruit pairs that we're going to go into fruit baskets but wouldn't last long as they were too ripe when delivered this past weekend. So today I peeled and cooked them down. Added lime juice/zest, Cinnamon, little pumpkin spice, and a few natural cherries and 2 Splenda brown sugar tablespoon to the pot. Weighed them out to 3 oz each and added marichino cherry (5 Cal's). I'm estimating 75 Cal's. plan to freeze and take with me for snack.

    You said "ideals". The ideal snack is Tuna in water. Sorry.

    Oh you might need to be more specific on your goal for type of snack.

    For diabetes I look for a snack that has balanced macros. Edamame seed pods are about perfect. Or cheese and crackers. Not that many. Or peanut butter and apple slices.

    I am having frozen berries (Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries) right now. Sometimes I stir it in yogurt or cottage cheese but it is so sunny here that I am enjoying this frozen treat.

    My current favorite snacks:

    Apples w/almond butter
    Bananas plain or w/hazelnut butter
    Triscuits (reduced fat) w/Laughing Cow Swiss Light
    Fresh fruit - pretty much any kind
    Oikos Triple Zero Yogurt (15 grams of protein!) and strawberries
    Vegetables w/hummus
  • Fat free greek yoghurt or quark usually subsides any hunger for a good hour or two, good protein hit as standard. Makes me fart like a trooper though but that's something for my colleagues to deal with, not me

    I like to make this fake "apple crisp". I basically just cup up apples and mix with some oats. Toss in some cinnamon and then bake in the oven for about 30 min. I can make a big pan and then split up into snacks for the week. The sweetness in the apples really comes out when they are baked, no need for sugar or anything. Delicious.

    Thanks

    You can air pop popcorn in a good non stick pan. I use a stone sauce pan. Moisten with a little soy sauce, tabasco or melted butter to get flavourings to stick. Favourite flavorings are furikake, ranch dressing mix, nutritional yeast.
