Talking Draw your attention here please!

HELLOOO PEOPLE OF THE FITNESS WORLD

I am a person who loves snack time ( healthy snacks that is). Since my turn around to make more healthirer choices, I have found myself constantly searching for healthier snacks, because chips and other bad sweets ARE NOT my friends anymore. If anyone has any ideas PLEASE send them this way to me. I do thank you!!!

Also, does anyone know what you can pair plain, regular popcorn with?

You can buy some very juicy fruits (fresh and whole), peel them, slice or dice them and mix them with plain non-fat yogurt. Kind of a parfait. If it's not sweet enough, add a little Splenda. Count the calories so you get an idea of what you are eating.

Or - if savory is your thing - chop some olives in with some non-fat feta cheese. Roll it up in crustless slices of whole grain bread. If it's not tasty enough as is, then dip it in a small amount of olive oil flavored with herbs, salt and garlic. Again, count the calories.

Or - use a mandoline and slice some potatoes really thin. Spray with canola oil. Bake at high heat, turning once. Then, once they start to brown, take the pan out and stand the slices on end (tricky, but try it) and warm on low oven heat for as long as it takes to get them stiffened up. Oil will drain off, the potatoes should be crisper. With salt, they are like 'baked' chips you buy in a bag, but will taste fresher and be cheaper.

Or - pop some low-fat microwave popcorn and sprinkle with herbs and salt. I like nutritional yeast (Bragg's brand is good, at Whole Foods) sprinkled on my popcorn. It DOES taste like cheese.

I'll second that!

Very crunchy, salty, savory! Very low in calories.

I have bought them at Trader Joe's. You can also get them on Amazon.com Grocery if you're in the U.S.

Make up your own trail mix with stuff you like, like oatmeal, raisins, nuts, whole wheat pretzels, cereals...you'll be surprised and you'll have fun dreaming up new stuff to put into your custom made trail mix.

Cool, thanks! I've thought about using oatmeal before, but then I disregard that idea.

Make up a vegan pizza using a pre-made whole wheat crust, pizza sauce, green and red peppers onions, mushrooms, dairy free cheese, cook it for 8-12 minutes let it cool then put it in the frig and let it get cold and enjoy cold pizza snacks later !! It takes a little effort but it's soooo worth it.

Quarter up a cantaloupe, throw out the seeds, take off the skin, and then dice it into bite size pieces. Put it into a bowl, then add some grapes, and enjoy !!

This tastes like a Reeses peanut butter cup if your tortilla is very soft:

Spread two teaspoons peanut butter on a low carb tortilla, sprinkle with a packet of artificial sweetener and a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Roll up and enjoy.
