What healthy snacks can I have when feeling peckish?

I want to start eating healthily as of tomorrow. What healthy snacks can I have to subsitute chocolate, biscuits, crisps, nut assortments, etc.? Preferably fruity and interesting (as in not just a piece of fruit, but maybe stuff I can make using it), but not too complicated please. And they have to taste good, no tofu! Thanks!

    Why not try dried fruit mixes, they are tastey and healthy, cereal bars, fresh fruit salads, nut mixes (not salted). Pasta salads, there’s so much to choose from.

    Strawberries always work for me. Don’t disregard celery, you use up more calories eating/digesting it than you gain from it. However, it will not make you slim, just not make you fat.

    Tomatoes are very versatile – chopped tomatoes & red onions work well, also try slicing a couple of tomatos into 3 flat pieces each and then chuck on some herbs and grill them. Mixed herbs work well. V. low in calories.

    fruit flakes are nice and they do yogurt coated ones too.

    Got a blender? You can run a banana and some milk through the blender for a nice shake. You can add walnuts to it also for protien. Like veggies? Run a few carrots through the blender by themselves. Carrot juice and the pulp! Tastes great. A piece of tomato in with the carrot don’t hurt either. Just a piece though, or it gets really messy.

    You can also do crock pot veggie meals with beef or chicken stock to add flavor. Just get some nice ‘taters, carrots, peas if you care for them, a bit of corn for texture and crunch, green beans, (Don’t add ’till almost done or they get soft.) more crunch, and a bit of stuffing mix or bread cumbs to make it a bit thick so it sticks to the ribs. You can also use bullion cubes with plain water instead of beef or chicken stock. (Watch out for the salt though. It can really build up when you make something like this!)

    And you can also go the “healthy” snack route to curb your cravings during the transition period. Baby carrots in the bag, stuff like celery with peanut butter. (You can make these in advance. Cut the celery in about two inch pieces, fill the groove with peanut butter. Cover with wax paper and put in the ‘fridge. Instant healthy snack.)

    And apples! Don’t forget apples! Not as good as the banana for nutrition, but a crunchy, healthy snack. Take an apple, core it, slice it into wedges, and sprinkle some cinnamon on the wedges. Nice taste contrast, especially with the sweet apples. I am a big fan of low-fat ice cream. You can add that to just about any fruit, or add any fruit to it! Frozen strawberries and low fat vanilla ice cream in the blender. Good stuff!

    Got more, but I’m getting a bit long here. Good luck with the new healthy diet. Ciao!

    I know its not fruit, but plain popcorn is healthy and filling.

  14. Jolesharvey said :

    snacks. I have low fat spread cheese on crackers or homemade smoothies using strawberries, apples and banana’s, crab sticks, nuts (as they are still good fat), but i would say the smoothies are the best and fill me up and because they are already blended they are easy to digest.

    Cut some washed celery and fennel into chunks. Scatter some salad seasoning over the chunks with a finishing touch of honey mustard dressing. Finish off the preparation with some pine nuts.
    Eat with a slice of bread and spread with, if allowed in your new diet, some cold white wine.

    My Nan – size 10 aged 89 – snacks on cold boiled brussel sprouts!
    Yuk…oat cakes are really good and filing, maybe with low-fat cream cheese. Smoothies with banana really fill you up.

    You can buy packets of dried apricots from health food stores – taste nicer than you think and good for you. Alternatively a handful of nuts and raisins or sesame seed bar.

    make yourself a big fruit salad so you can snack on it during the day- makes it as easy to eat as unwrapping a chocolate bar, cut up veg as dips for houmous, etc, dried fruit and nut mixes, low fat yoghurts (check the sugar content though), smoothies- just trow the fruit in the liquidiser, a square of good quality dark chocolate a day is good for you- depends whether you can stick to a square though!
    good luck

    I have the smae problem Im always in the biscuit tin so when Im dieting I stock the fride with fruit and veg but heres a few suggestions. Cherries and grapes are good very sweet and no peeling. Try a bowl of fruit salad with strawberries, bananas, peaches (whichever fruit you like) add a couple of table spoons of natural yogurt or honey. Pumkin seeds and pine cones ar good (in small ammounts) Carrot sticks, celery, peppers chut into slices. Even dried fruit good for you apricots, prunes, dates but only in small ammounts as loads of sugar. If you do need chocolate buy fun size bars and freeze them they last a lot longer frozen. Good luck with the heathly eating

    fruit and nuts,

    fruit salad – use three or four, then vary from day to day with other fruits

    seeds – pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, mixed with some sultanas or raisins

    Best of all use your imagination to come up with combinations you will enjoy.

    Good luck with your healthy eating!

    Any fruit. Cereal bars or my favourites: Fig rolls! (although some brands add a heap of sugar)

  25. Kathy said :

    Lowfat plain yogurt with fresh berries or bananas is really good.(mango is really good too) My favorite kind of yogurt is a greek yogurt called “Fage” (fa-yeh) it’s really good, and one container is big enough to last a couple snacks.
    *if you wanna add honey or maple syrup, it adds calories but it’s good*

  26. Ben said :

    Here is a quick, simple and tasty way to have an avocado; if you are not sure of them, get the seller to show you how to tell one that is ready to eat.

    Cut in to the stone all around, lengthwise. Twist the halves apart. Gently push the stone sideways with the knife edge and it should pop out.

    Then, use a blunt, round-ended knife to cut into the flesh without going through the skin; cut across and lengthwise so that the flesh is diced.

    Put a shake of Worcestershire sauce (go lightly with this if salt is an issue) into the hollow left by the stone. Just use a teaspoon to eat it straight out of the skin – delicious!

    Carrots, cucumber or celery dipped in houmous! But if that’s too healthy and you’re not much of a vege lover try sprinkling a tiny bit of paprika on a pitta bread, toasting it and dipping that in houmous!

    Can I simply say what a aid to seek out someone who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the right way to carry a problem to light and make it important. More people must learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant believe youre not more widespread since you undoubtedly have the gift.
