Satisfying Snacks

Again think protein and fiber to help fill you up for your snacks!

Protein choices may include, deli meats, dairy, edamame (soybeans), nuts and more.  Fiber choices may include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and more.   Here are some of my favorites.


Greek yogurt – 10 to 15 grams of protein per serving!  Make sure you get the fat free or 0% – the regular can have 20 grams of fat per serving!  The picture below is unsweetened – so what I like to do is add 1 tbsp Mrs. Dash seasoning plus 1/2 tsp garlic salt and eat as a dip with my veggies.  I tend to eat way more veggies with having 6-ounces of dip instead of only 2 tablespoons!  Plus this little cup contains 15 grams of protein and 30% calcium!

Dress up your rice cake.  I know you are probably thinking “great diet food” but try adding a tablespoon of peanut butter to your caramel rice cake.  The salty and sweet are perfect together! Great for a snack or have a couple for breakfast!


Laughing Cow Light Cheese – add this to your favorite cracker.  The cheese just melts in your mouth.
