What are you snacking on?

I am trying to snack healthier. I've started snacking on grapes, apples, baby bell peppers, and cheese but kind of draw a blank on what else I could do. I shop online so I can't just browse to see what looks good. I have access to a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster.

    Bananas, berries, oranges, and many other fruits. Celery,carrots, cucumbers w/ a homemade dip using plain non fat greek yogurt as your base with other seasonings and a splash of lemon juice. Protein shakes. I buy the Members Mark brand from Sams Club and its 160 calories, 2 net carbs, 1 gram of sugar, and 30 grams of protein. You could also use that protein shake as a base and add frozen fruit and maybe some almond milk to make your own protein smoothie that is tasty and filling.

    My 2 favorite snacks are plain nonfat yogurt, doctored up with a little SF syrup and blueberries, plus peanuts in the shell.
    I will also eat fresh veggies and hummus a lot, either as a snack or a meal.
    Sometimes when the munchies hit, for no real good reason, I'll make a cup of coffee or SF hot chocolate.

    I like peanut butter granola bars, dried cranberries, and low calorie rice crackers. I also like to keep a container of seedless grapes in the freezer (sweet cold treat)

    The frozen grapes mentioned above, reminds me of when I had lots of children in my daycare who refused to eat veggies. I'd take out of bag of frozen peas while I was making lunch, and they'd eat those like they were candy. Just a thought. :)

    I've gotten into icelandic yogurt (siggi's) which has a lot of protein - more than greek yogurt and I add berries to it.

    I usually go with nibbles that contribute a bit of nutrition, and may have a few more calories, but that fit well in the overall eating puzzle: Reduced fat string cheese, plain nonfat Greek yogurt with chocolate peanut butter powder and frozen berries, crispy broad beans or chickpeas, prunes, Yasso frozen Greek yogurt bars, chevre on a calorie-efficient substrate (there's a tortilla-sized crispy thing called "Coco Lite Pop Cake" that's 20 calories), microwaved puppodum . . .

    ETA: If few calories available, then something like pickles, sauerkraut, marinated mushrooms. Since my BP is fine, the sodium isn't a big issue.

    Ultra low cal ocean spray cranberry juice in the evening. About 10 calories per serving. A good sub for my sweet tooth and good additional to keep fluid levels high.

    My afternoon snack is usually an apple and some almonds. I often have a stick of string cheese when I get home. Once or twice per week I sit down to a small bowl of chips and salsa.

    Sometimes I just bust open a can of peas… protein fluff is also a great option

    Second the Icelandic yogurt. But I buy Icelandic Provisions which I find creamier and less sour tasting than Siggis - especially the Fruit an Nut varieties. I also eaten grapes, apples, bananas. Hummus with crackers.

    I have nuts in moderation or try to...

    I found some recipes for no bake protein/snack balls. Which are pretty much dates or figs mix with whatever nut, other fruit you want and sometimes nut butter. Toss all that in a food processor an roll the paste in to balls.

    Others a simple protein shake would to do it for me.

    My fridge usually has Asian inspired cabbage/carrot/ginger slaw and/or grated carrots. That satisfies both my savory and sweet cravings. Grating carrots releases their natural sugars and given a little time, they taste sweeter grated than if you simply ate them whole or a thick carrot sticks.

    I haven't tried it yet but I had done one recommended freezing grapes - they sound pretty good.

    I have the same in my fridge too, Carrot and daikon radish salad (Julienned)🙂 It's the only kind of salad I like. Try adding daikon (white) radish in it. Makes it better.

    Whenever I am cutting up vegetables for a recipe, I cut a few extra and put them in one-portion size baggies. That way when I open the fridge looking for something to eat, there are fresh vegie snacks right there in front.
