    Healthy low calorie snack options?

    Just wondering what people have as healthy snacks? I really struggle to think of things and would like some ideas other than just fruit really. I was thinking of making some hummus and having carrot and pepper sticks with it but I'm not sure how high or low calorie hummus is, it's healthy though isn't it? Any suggestions?

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

    As my snack I love my yes you can diet plan protein shakes, they have 15g of protein with no added sugar. They taste like dessert, simply delicious and they are under a 100 cal.

    I put cucumber sticks in a pot with smoked ham. It flavours the cucumber. Nom nom. Eggs is a great one but they can stink! I used to take dried fruit but now because I exercise a lot, work full time and I'm training to be a gym instructor I have bigger snacks like a slice of bread with chicken or peanut butter on! Mmm. Watch out for go ahead stuff. You'll find that they come in like packs of three but I would only ever allow myself a snack that's under 100kcals. So a portion is actually one and a half biscuits. I like those marshmallow wafer things too. They're very low kcals. And pink wafers too.

    Hummus with veggie sticks is very healthy! I like apple slices with peanut butter to dip as well - the PB brings the calories up a bit but I find it's very filling.
    Some fruit in sugarfree jelly is good but not very portable, but you can buy little pots in supermarkets (I find they're a bit weird tasting though, better to make your own!)
    The Danio greek yogurts are nice too, quite mild flavoured and the fruit layer is tasty; they range from 130 - 160 calories per pot and because they're higher in protein they're also very filling. Only downside is the price

    Carrots are my personal favorite, easy to handle, cheap, crunchy, and really tasty. I usually keep them in a bag somewhere to munch on when I feel cravings or something.

    Some great ideas here for healthy snacks!
    I usually have a full fat babybel or a pack of quavers/squares/wot sits/French fries
    Bananas are a good one too! X

    Nuts have rather many calories.

    I would say in the long run it's better to have a snack that's natural with more calories than a sugar-soaked product that's only 60 calories.
    My recommendations would be a chopped boiled egg mixed with spring onions, homemade hummus with pepper, carrot and celery sticks, or even a slice of brown bread with some tinned tuna.
