Healthy snacks? I need some variety!

<< < (2/4) > >>

I like a spoonful of Justin's Honey PB with apple slices, celery, whole wheat English muffins, etc. it's all natural and inexpensive at my local TT.

There's no foods I'm trying to avoid, just heavy on the fruits and veggies. (I'm doing Weight Watchers and am trying to keep snacks under 4 points, I'd that helps.)

I'm not a fan of oatmeal, but I'd never thought of soup as a snack. Thanks! The Rnhlish muffins sound good too. Trying to think if things that are easy to prepare and eat at work. ;)

My husband is on WW and he snacks on whole fruit: apples, bananas, berries (he mixes blueberries, raspberries and blackberries), strawberries, etc. Basically, anything that is 0 points. If he has points to use up he eats barbecue-flavored pop chips or salt-and-vinegar potato straws (I believe those are baked). Pretzels sometimes, if we have them, which are tasty dipped in hummus or peanut butter.

Do you have a toaster at work? One of my favorite snacks is a piece of toast or a toasted English muffin, a drizzle of olive oil and half an avocado smooshed onto the bread with a fork, with a tiny sprinkle of salt. If you don't have a toaster, you could try crispbread or flat bread instead.

Also consider changing up your favorites a little. Instead of always carrots and hummus, try some green pepper strips and broccoli and celery and snow peas and cherry tomatoes. Instead of always hummus, try some low-fat ranch dressing, or tzatziki or garlic-yogurt dip.

Several months ago, I was searching for healthy snacks, because I have the same problem of getting stuck in a rut, and came up with this list. Maybe there's something here that you would like. I don't do Weight Watchers, so I'm sorry I don't know how many points these would be.
