snack suggestions

Anyone have snack suggestions that will curb the "sweets" cravings?

This summer I did fresh strawberries & blueberries - but they are no longer in season (here in the northern hemisphere...Mrs. X you have any good ones there?).

Re: snack suggestions

My wife buys cuties (those mini oranges). I don't think they're too acidy... acidic. Then again... I don't recall seeing them the last time we went to the grocery store.

How about kiwi? Those are good. Inexpensive too.

Pineapple? Fresh pineapple.

Chocolate???? - I might be the wrong person to ask. I like eating healthy foods for meals, and absolute rubbish for snacks. I make homemade muesli bars that are heavily calorie laden and delicious. And FULL of chocolate! Although it works very well at curbing the sweet cravings.

Re: snack suggestions

I buy the cuties too, Knot2Loud. And pineapple. Yum. As much as I love it though, the pineapple is not quite the "sweet" taste I crave sometimes. I keep unsweetened applesauce in the 'fridge (well, I try to. DD likes it a lot ). I have to read the labels though - a lot of applesauce has added sugar. I also find carrots to be just-the-right level of sweet sometimes. There are always frozen berries.

As to Mrs X's chocolate suggestion - LOL - I actually keep a very dark chocolate (something along the lines of 88% cocoa) around to help with the chocolate cravings.

Re: snack suggestions

I've been buying a few things that are organic certified without the corn syrup (of course, when I made fudge ripple icecream the chocolate sauce called for corn syrup )

Old fashioned corn syrup is very different from high fructose corn syrup.

A dark chocolate a few times a week is very good for you. Clementines are nice, but really any kind of fruit is good for a sweet snack. So is some PB, Nutella, or fruit preserves on a whole grain cracker. In the winter, a warm sweet drink really does the trick! My kids love vanilla milk-- warm skim milk with a drop of vanilla extract and some honey.

Re: snack suggestions

DH and I are cutting the junk... and now I'm hungry most of the time .... even 30 minutes after I've eaten ...any suggestions for healthy/filling snacks?


wait a minute...It's just now getting cold here ... I normally go thru a "pre-hibernation" period every fall , I have for years. I'll be constantly hungry for a few weeks, then my appitite will drop off and I'm constatnly tired for a few weeks (in the spring it happens again...just in reverse)
