Healthy Snacking

From Denise Austin today:
Eat Right!
Snacking is not a dirty word for dieters if you're careful about what you reach for! I can think of loads of nutritious, low-calorie foods that can help you feel full and boost your energy without ruining your day. Stick to a sensible serving size and you're good to go! Here are some ideas to get you snacking healthy!

* Cut up veggies with hummus
* Sliced fruit with nonfat Greek yogurt
* A few almonds or walnuts
* Low-fat cottage cheese
* Air-popped popcorn
* Hard-boiled eggs
* String cheese
* Baked tortilla chips with salsa
* Homemade smoothies or fruit shakes

Try a few of these snacks this week, and a few more next week. Constantly switch things up so that you don't get bored — and you'll be all set to handle your next snack attack!

I should really hard boil a few eggs and keep them in the fridge ready for snacking. I wonder how long they would stay good for...?

i remember in the old days.........no eating in between meals when you are dieting...
now that is soooo counterproductive since frequent healthy snacks keep our metabolism up and prevent us from gorging when we are starving

All for snacks around here!!!
