Snack Suggestions
I need some suggestions for new snacks. I've always kept carrots and celery around for when I wanted a nibble but in the last few months they have become problematic. I've been getting stomach pains after eating them. I suspect I'm developing the same stomach problem my mom has and my grandmother had, which means I'll slowly lose raw fruits and veggies as dietary choices (cooked are fine). But a baggie of cooked carrots isn't really a tidy or convenient nibble to toss in my purse.

What would you throw in your snack bag if raw veggies weren't an option?

A boiled egg

GG crackers (12 calories each) or other whole rye crackers like Finn Crisp (20 calories) - lots of fiber - I find them very filling

A few peanuts in shells (one shell= 11 calories) or a few shelled pistacchios

Raw almonds - a few go a long way

Cooked string green or yellow beans (or both)

Great idea to start this discussion. I can see how it will be very inspirational!

Lately I have been buying grapefruit cups for evening snacks. It's a much easier way to eat grapefruit, which have many nutritional benefits and suppress appetite too.

Egg, white only, coked, x 2 = 34 cal, 7.2 proteins
Cauliflower, cooked, 100 gr = 44 cal
Tomatoes, raw, 1 medium = 22 cal
Lettuce, raw, 2 cup = 16 cal :D
Cheese, nonfat, 100 gr = 55 cal, 12 gr protein
Yogurt, plain, nonfat milk, 160 gr = 90 cal, 9.2 gr proteins

I usually eat proteins + veggies for every meal/snacks.
Calcium + Vitamin D (sun exposure) = fat burner

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