I like to snack on trail mix. What I do is take about 1/4 cup - put it in a bowl and eat it very slowly. Taking each nut and chewing it very thoroughly. This takes time of course - but by the time I'm finished my "craving" is done and I've only eating a few calories.

I love hummus with whole wheat pita (I like to toast my own) or carrots/peppers. Greek yogurt with a crushed up crunchy granola bar. It's a little high in calories, but so good and healthy. I also like apples and nuts. Yum!

I swear by Hummus...I love it. With Carrots or Red Bell Peppers. Also with Wasa crackers...low in calories & tons of Fiber.

Also love Granola Bars...sweet & chewy. The other thing I will get is Low Cal/High Fiber English muffins...just a little light cream cheese & cans of Mandarin Oranges...they are sweeter & no peeling.

I like taking some pumpkin puree (hey, it's in season!) and adding cinnamon, nutmeg, etc, vanilla, sweetener (I use stevia) and warming it in the microwave. Sometimes I'll add a little sliver off the stick of butter.

I actually have some of this with breakfast lately, and various other times of day if I desire it. I've been very into squash this winter, lol.

6 triscuits (140 cal) and 1 wedge laughing cow lite cheese (35 cal)...alittle spread on each cracker or blue bunny ice cream sandwich (140 cal) or even a packet of oatmeal w/water as a snack.

A few almonds or a handful of pistachios will often do the trick for me. Something about the chewing (crunching!) seems to satisfy. When I have to have sweets, I try to save some calories, carbs etc for the end of the day and treat myself to frozen yogurt.

And eat slowly.... savor EVERY nibble!

granola bars with high fiber, like Fiber One bars, are a healthy snack, and they are delicious and filling too...

I love to snack and I'm finding that the hardest to give up. Anyone found some yummy but healthy snacks that don't derail dieting? I know the usual fruits and vegeatables but I need MORE!
