The hard part for me in my weight loss goal has always been the eating. I have always been a snacker. It’s my favorite meal of the day so I tend to have it a few times.

I do try to keep my snacks to non-processed foods but I admit I do keep some of them around. I usually only eat them as a substitution for a “bad” craving. For example if I’m craving a brownie I figure it’s better that I eat a Fiber One Brownie versus making a whole batch of “bad” brownies.

I also bring a stash of snacks to work. That way if I do want something I have a better option on hand and it keeps me away from the vending machine.

So here are some of the snacks I like to keep on hand….

Carrots & Hummus
Frozen Grapes (these are like little Popsicle bites)
Boiled Eggs
Low Fat Yogurt
Apples & Peanut Butter
Fat Free Pudding
Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop
Quaker Low Sugar Oatmeal
Fiber One Brownies
Weight Watchers Fudge Bars
Quaker Caramel Corn Rice Cakes
Homemade Fruit Smoothies

So there are my “staple” snacks.  I try to rotate buying them so I don’t get bored with any one item.  I also try new fruits from time to time, you never know what you will like till you try it.  What are some of your favorite “healthier” side snacks.
