no no no no no........Why cheese everywhere........don't go there
Bread for a snack - no way Jose.
Cheeps and vending machine crap - staying there for months - they'll stay with you for months too)
Plane celery - yummy.
Tuna with something green - great and good looking
Bowl of beans - well, if you are that way:)

The almonds sound great as well as a great way to give some variety to almonds.

Great suggestions, some have higher calories then I usually plan for snacks. But I agree with everyone else and wish we could print these. I couldnt even email it to try to print it that way as someone suggested.

Ok, other than the meat ones and the celery with bleu cheese, these look awesome! I would also like to print them. I guess I'll just have to save the email.

Hmmm. I really like the chicken wrap idea. Most, I would not like. I'd still prefer fruit over most of that. Chips and salsa.. Oh I can do that lol. The hard boiled egg one.. why bother? One egg? who can eat only a couple pretzels. That's like eating one chip. I'd rather go without, then be teased. I think that a lot of us torture ourselves by eliminating all the yumminess of the snacks we used to love and even though it's the healthy route I think that every once in a while as long as it's not a habit and you fall back into your bad habits. Eat something unhealthy that you love Once every two weeks. I mean what harm can it really do? Work out extra that week to make up for it. That's what I think. It's like settling for having bad sex every day when you can just incredible sex once a week. Jus saying.

Wow, talk about some great, creative ideas! What I love about this website is how everyone thinks outside the box and comes up with really do-able things. I don't do kitchen, consider myself to be kitchenally challenged, and these are all things that don't require very much time, effort or hassle to make. I tend to eat the same things and get into a rut, then give up and binge. My motivation to snack sanely has been rejuvenated.
