Seriously Snacking Suggestions

Finding healthy snack options can be hard, especially if you need to grab and go quickly. Here are some snack suggestions that I found on thebiggestloser.com, that are easy to make, have 150 calories or less and are protein packed! 1. Edamame (1/2 cup), buy frozen and follow cooking instructions (80 calories) 2. 5 celery stalks (4" long) and 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese (95 calories) 3. 1 large dill pickle and 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter (125 calories) 4. WASA Rye Crispbread (1 cracker) with 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese (115 calories) 5. Two slices turkey breast lunch meat rolled with 2 teaspoons cranberry jelly (100 calories) 6. Thinly sliced medium apple or pear with 1 ounce of cheese (150 calories) 7. Shrimp cocktail, 12 small shrimp with ¼ cup cocktail sauce (100 calories) 8. 1/4 can tuna with 1/4 cup non-fat plain yogurt and 1 miniature box of raisins (125 calories) 9. Cottage cheese, 1/2 cup low-fat + 1/3 cup canned pineapple (120 calories) 10. Veggie burger, soy-based, + 2 pickle slices and 1 tablespoon of mustard (110 calories)

  1. Don't get me wrong-- I love snacking. I love eating period. But sometimes I feel that snacking just opens up your appetite and you end up snacking more than you should have.

    Love your ideas. Very creative.
