Thought maybe we could post some good snacks here.... What helps you get over the munchies... Have you tried anything new you would like to pass on... a good site to sign up at http://www.hungry-girl.com/subscribe/subscribe.php she talks about good substitutes and good food...

todays snack was egg whites... lots of protein and very little calories.... I never thought to snack on egg whites??

Gimpy, great site, thanks for the info! Anita, where do you get the 100 calorie packs of almonds? I love almonds! I have been on an apple kick lately. Fruit is so high here right now, it's ridiculous.

I like the fruits too. In the summer I freeze my grapes and then eat them! Very refreshing on a hot sultry night.

Fruit and popcorn are my main snacks. King Soopers had a great deal on bags of snack size rice cakes last week. If you bought 10, they were only 49 cents each! I got lots of different flavors.

I love flavored rice cakes and haven't been able to find them in my grocery store... Strawberries are 6.99 a lb... glad I froze some last summer when the price was low... I cut up some carrots for the refrig... so when you open the door there they are... something munchie to chew on... I keep homemade applesause with raisons or cranberries on had all the time... I like to put it on a piece of rice toast....

We just finished strawberries that I bought last week (those yellow stay fresh fridge bags work great) I think I paid 2.50 for a medium plastic carton.
I love the flavored rice cvakes too...my current favorite is the cheese one. Taste just like cheese puffs which are so bad for you except not nearly as salty and won't turn your fingers orange.
Quaker makes them but I prefer the flavor of the Fit Active Brand (Aldi) They taste even less salty to me......I'm not a real salt addict.
I must say however my downfall in dieting is always the nuts...nuts...nuts...just love them and eat wayyyy too many at a sitting.

I ran across this the other day: 5 foods that help you lose weight

oz Melted dark chocolate on graham cracker 98 calories has antioxidants and may prevent accumulation of fat cells

Cup Navy beans resistant starch burns 25% more cals.

22 almond a serving helps lyou lose body fat

grapefruit before each meal can help you lose up to a pound a week. Regulates insulin(fat storing hormone)

Pears eat one before meals will help you feel full and has 15% of daily fiber. Most of the fiber is in the skin.

lmao I can't eat just one! AND..why do they call the little candy bars "fun size"? Shouldn't the big ones be called fun size?

My weakness: The peppercorn ranch potato chips from Aldi's. They're a thicker cut and so yummy! I wish they would declare potato chips a health food. :roll:

my problem is I hate those rice cake cracker things, I dont eat museli/granola bars, thankfully I dont eat cream cheese but I do love saltine crackers and they arent so healthy or fat free. I like nuts, usually pecans or cashews but dont buy them often. I like dried cranberries but am yet to find much else to snack on but there is always fruit

Gimpy, that is so cute, we have a little nosey one too, Don has shut Tigger up in the dryer a few times too, and I've come close to shutting the fridge on his head a time or two when I've been in a hurry Smitten Never have tasted avocados, have always wanted to but if I don't like it there would be a waste of money and food.

What a cute pic Gimpy! lmao

I still haven't warmed up to avocados. The texture is weird to me?They're mushy. DH eats them sliced up on salads and loves them.
Our favorite Mexican restaurant always adds chopped lettuce with guacamole on the side of the plate and I've eaten just a bit. I just can't seem to get past the way it looks..like somebody else already ate it? Shocked

I tried rice cakes years ago. They were kind of like eating styrofoam? Maybe I should try them again..they must have improved them?

avacado is a great replacement for butter, just dont apply it thickly till your used to it, Iused to give it to laura on toast when she was a little one. Its very nice if you get a bread roll and 'butter' it with the avocado then add some cold meat & salad. If you spread some on toast and then grill cheese over it, its yummy. I like it like that but dont eat it in chunks in salads etc. My aunt & uncle own an avocado plantation in the north.
