A Campbells product. Microwavable, 80 to 120 cal (depending on variety), and very satisfying on a cold winters afternoon. I keep a can or two at work for those long hours between lunch and dinner.

I like baby carrots but I also make little sandwiches.
Mini whole wheat tortillas with a little lettuce and cheese in them.
I also like almonds but I don't eat many of them.

Buffalo jerky
Hard-boiled eggs
Dried fruit (mangoes, raisins, mulberries, pineapples)
Nuts (almonds, pecans, peanuts)
Pumpkin seeds
Pine nuts
Milk (whole, fills you up quick)
Wasabi peas
Cherry tomatoes

And I've recently started eating whole carrots Bugs Bunny style.

I get the fat-free Fudgesicles that are the size of a single popsicle, 60 calories. The sugar free version is 40 calories. Satisfies the desire for ice cream

Pudding cups, I usually get the Kozy Shack "no sugar added" variety, chocolate is my absolute favorite, but I generally eat the tapioca, because it has 30 fewer calories (70-100 calories depending on the flavor).

Carrot sticks dipped in veggie dip made out of Greek yogurt (150 calories).

Apple slices dipped in caramel flavored Greek yogurt, this is a great pick-me-up and around 200 calories, with a whopping 14 grams of protein to boot.

Micro popcorn, Act II 94% fat free - usually the whole bag unless I'm forced to share it (105 calories).

Frozen blueberries in vanilla honey yogurt (132 calories).

Small handful of nuts, usually almonds, but sometimes cashews (I like cashews better, but sometimes eating them makes the cravings worse). What I really want is to eat the whole can, so I have to be careful with them. First I measure out the amount (usually 1 oz), then close the can and put it back into the far back of the pantry cupboard and get a giant glass of water. Then I eat the nuts 1 at a time and take big gulps of water in between, and I won't let myself eat the last nut until the whole glass is gone (172 calories).

Tuna with a little squeeze of ff ranch salad dressing stuffed into fresh mushroom caps, sometimes broiled, sometimes cold - it's an acquired taste (approx 200 calories depending on the salad dressing).

Oranges, I usually go for an orange when I'm really hungry and craving something sweet. There are days I could eat it peel and all, but so far I've resisted that urge and managed to get the peel off beforehand (62 calories).

I love anything frozen, so I've been making my own popsicles with all kinds of things. The best ones were with frozen sugar-free chocolate pudding, but the frozen chocolate royale Atkins shake wasn't none too shabby. I also love a good smoothie, and well if you have a little leftover that makes a dynamite popsicle too. And if you're craving apple pie, Dannon makes a fantastic apple pie Lite & Fit yogurt.

I know it might sound boring sounding, but just..... fruit is great. A nice fruit salad is ideal, natural, low calorie and the variety is almost endless.

I eat hummus or salsa with veggies (nix the pita/tortilla chips to keep the calories down). I also like a slice of lunchmeat (just watch the sodium content) and a piece of low fat cheese with some mustard. Hard-boiled eggs are great too.

Coffee or hot tea are great fillers for me when I'm feeling snacky and don't have calories to play with.

Jello Sugar Free puddings are about 60 cals per serving.

Hot tea is a good one to stave off an attack.

Light cheese sticks, Jerky of some kind. Almond butter w/ apple slices.
