Default Need healthy snack/small meal ideas!

I'm trying to get into the habit of eating several small meals a day, but am having a really tough time coming up with healthy, "clean" food that will also satiate me. I only have two favorites right now - a large apple with a slice of cheese, and a cup of cottage cheese with a fresh tomato.

I'm just curious to know what everyone else is eating.

I love peanut butter sandwiches, made with crunchy hydrogenated-oil-free peanut butter and whole grain bread.

Also, wheat crackers (Stoned Wheat Thins are my favorite) with cream cheese--you can use light cream cheese if you want, I don't find it tastes much different.

Ooh, or ants on a log! Fill a celery stick with peanut butter and stick raisins on it. Yummm

My recent favorite is a DT that I actually put in my hair at first, then modified for food.

I slice up a banana, add a cup (the little yoplait cups) of vanilla-flavored yogurt, and mix them together. Then I pour honey over the top, mix again, and eat!

It's probably the best idea I've ever had in my life.

One of my favorite snacks is similar to Skitts'. I like plain yogurt, with honey and grapenuts! Fresh fruit, like strawberries, are good to add. Oranges are a great, I eat at least 3 a day. I also love apples and cheese! Sharp cheddar tastes the best.

Strawberries... Oh, the cravings! I want nothing more than a bowl of fresh strawberries with milk and sugar right now. The milk turns pink after a while!

I like eating frozen berries. frozen redcurrants are great in drinks too! And frozen raspberries with pineapple... Heavenly. Might have to defrost them a wee bit first, though. Even better with a bit of vanilla yoghurt on top.

I really like almonds and dried apricots for a healthy snack and it staves off hunger too.

Good old crackers and cheese is good but also whole wheat crackers with peanut butter and bananas is yummy.

I agree with all the yogurt ideas, great snack food.

Make three burritos and eat one at a time.
Peanut butter sandwiches likewise. Also peanut butter megillas, or hummus megillas. (A megilla is a tortilla spread with something and then rolled up.)

Ooooh! Great ideas! I do love yogurt, but I completely spaced out the crackers with peanut butter and bananas. Yum. And I love tortillas...that's a definite add to my shopping list.

Okay...hungry now...

Hope I'm not stepping in too late . . .

I take about a third cup of frozen blueberries, add a sprinkling of sugar, and couple of heaping tablespoons of non- or low-fat unflavored yogurt. I mix it all together and let it sit for a few seconds. The yogurt freezes to the blueberries.

I'm sure you could use honey or something else for a more healthful sweetening agent.
