Hi everyone! I'm PMS-ing BIG TIME right now and I'm hoping you all can help me. I'm so lucky I don't have any junk food in the house right now, because if I did it would be in my tummy! I need some ideas for snacks. I like the 94% fat free popcorns out there, and I like the sugar free puddings. Does anyone have something that just knocks their socks off and is low cal? I'm desperate...

    For "those" special cravings, I like soy crisps. They come in a salty-sweet barbecue flavor, and that helps me. They also have protein, which I've heard helps at that special time.

    Also, not at all decadent, but helps with the salty-sweet is some natural peanut butter and an apple.

    I get SO hungry at that time, I send you my sympathies...

    i think berries and pineapple are great for sweet. As for salty. maybe a little melon with some salt on it.

    Thank you guys for your help. I feel much better today. I have to admit... I went to the grocery store and bought some peanut butter cereal- it looks like Kicks, but it's peanut butter... in the organic section it's called Peanut Butter Bumpers. They have 130 for a serving. Here's what I did... I put my cupful into a big coffee mug and then sprinkled salt on top!!!!!!!!!! I was desperate. Anyway, the good news is it worked! Dry cereal can save me sometimes.
