Question:What do you "snack" on?

I prefer to eat smaller meals throughout the day, which means, I tend to eat some snacky food. I do love fruit, pretzels, hummus and a lot of healthy stuff, but of course I do indulge my sweet tooth and salty tooth. And who can eat carrots or apples every time they need a little snack?!?

What do YOU snack on? Have you found healthy AND fulfilling choices?

Answer:

I like to make sure that I have at least 5 grams of protein in any snack that I have. I try to follow the six small meals a day rule. I find a good source of high protein can be from yogurt, peanut butter, almonds or low fat cheese. The protein helps me stay full longer.

Answer:

I've been thinking and thinking about this, and I can't come up with one set answer. I guess I just love to switch things up. If I had my choice though, I'd probably eat cookies every day. I'm such a sucker for crunchy and sweet. Apples are always good for that if I'm trying to be healthy.

Answer:

I like pretzels, but what I really like is to eat pretzels with little nibbles of cheese at the same time. I also like to snack on nuts and raisins, but my downfall is cookies... I find it very hard to say no to dessert.
