Snacks

Recommended Posts

What do you normally snack on during the day? I have gluten free rolls which I have with peanut butter a lot because it's quick, but they're so expensive and I'm a poor student, I need to come up with some cheaper alternatives but that are still really quick.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Quick for me is nuts...I keep some at my desk and grab a few anytime I need a quick snack.

I will also sometimes have an energy bar with a little nut butter on it.

I like raw almonds and walnuts.

If I want a little chocolate, I eat some Nestle's chocolate chips.

Also, bananas and tea. :)

Potato chips a lot- I know, not too healthy, but sometimes you just gotta!

I have really enjoyed peanut butter on rice cakes lately. Rice cakes also come in a variety of small, snack flavors.

Other snacks: fresh fruit, popcorn and raisins.

Popcorn (regular popcorn can be made in the microwave in a brown paper bag) is a good one. I like apples and peanut butter as well. Carrots or sweet peppers and hummus are good too. Lundberg rice cakes and eggs are good too, though I suppose that's often my breakfast.

I snack all the time. Here are my basics:

cracker barrel cheese "bars" - they are pre-packaged in little bars that are easy to take with you. I love eating them with Lay's Stax. I call it my version of cheese and crackers, but it is balanced with fat, carbs and protein

apple slices - again good with cheese slices

yogurt

boost - if you need almost a meal substitute the high protein has tons of calories and protein and keeps me going, just don't get the chocolate malt

carnation instant breakfast - just put it in milk and you have a big snack

little carrots

I buy the prepackaged apple sauces for kids lunches, b/c I teach, I can eat one quickly in a few bites between classes, and it ties me over --

a few jelly belly jelly beans,

string cheese,

yogurt (with soy nuts on top - my version of the yoplait mixes since I can't have the granola or cookie crisps)

Most of the time, I tend to crave crunch so I eat peanuts and cashews (any nuts really) all the time.

Tostitos with roasted red pepper hummus (Athenos brand)

glutino pretzels (glorious!)

shredded coconut - although sticky - is also a yummy, sweet treat!
