Evening snacks

Hi all,

Please can anyone suggest any nice healthy snacks sweet or savory?

Evening is when I crave snacks.

Thanks in advance.

    What's healthy or not for you? I eat fruit and yoghurt and add in depending on how many calories I have left - sunflower seeds, flax, chia, peanut butter. Sometimes I'll slice an apple with a little cheese and crackers and nuts again, depending on how many cals I have.

    Thank you. Like low calorie snacks.

    Well low calorie and healthy aren't always the same. How about just a calorie appropriate amount of whatever you like?

    My favorite evening snack is a banana with 1 Tbsp of peanut butter and Hershey light chocolate syrup.

    My after dinner desert (fruit and yogurt or cottage cheese most of the time), counts as my evening snack.

    I leave 300-400 calories for dessert. 2 tbsp of peanut butter and a bunch of stuff to dip in it (pretzels, dark chocolate...)

    I always have one of these:

    1.) banana/cup of almond milk/8 grams ghirardelli sweet cocoa/.5 serving peanut butter powder with ice blended as a smooth. Comes in under 200 calories.

    2.) serving each of low fat cottage cheese, strawberries, frozen blueberries, with 20ml of dark balsamic vanilla or strawberry flavored vinegar, and 8 gm grapenuts on top. Comes in around 240 calories and super sweet, satisfying and filling. And it takes forever to eat because it’s a giant honking bowl of sweet goodness.

    If I have an evening where I can afford both after dinner, as occasionally happens, it’s Like Woot! Woot! Woot!!!!!!!

    I’ve had triangles from a giant chocolate bar in the freezer for five months now and have only touched them once. It’s a mental tug of war..... one or two triangles for a moments bliss, or a whole ninja blender jug or bowl of yumminess. Amazing how it retrained my brain to start thinking of it like that.

    My snacks vary depending on how many calories and carbs I have remaining for the day. I've had cheese and pecans, half a banana and peanut butter, frozen yogurt and a few berries (I like to freeze my two good yogurts), half an apple and peanut butter, beef stick and cheese and sometimes if I'm wanting a milkshake I'll take a premier protein shake, pb2 and some ice and toss it in my blender.

    I like the Hersheys Special Dark Chocolate mini morsels. I fill up about 5 or 6 fun size zip lock bags with about 25 in each at 70 calories. Also, like them chilled in the freezer or fridge. I'll throw in a few walnuts and raisins for a workday snack.

    Smartfoods Cheese popcorn. It's salty/carby-like, and you can eat a lot of it without it shoving your caloric intake really high.
