My Twentysomething Life

A First for the New Year

on January 7, 2014

This is my first confession to you in the new year.

I am a snacker.  I love to snack, all the time.
zitsOne of the hardest parts about doing this new eating healthy thing is the snacks.  It is hard to find healthy, filling snacks.  Luckily for me, popcorn is pretty healthy so I can snack on this.  The other problem with healthy snacks is that they are little.  I can only have a few cups of popped popcorn.  But popcorn for me is like Pringles, “once you pop, the fun don’t stop.”  For a while I was trying to eat Ritz crackers, but I could only eat 5 of them for a snack.  Sheesh, who only wants to eat 5 crackers.  So I have had to come up with some other solutions, and some where I can eat more and actual feel like I had a substantial snack.

Some good healthy snacks:
Yogurt
Blueberry Yogurt Bites (blueberries covered in yogurt and frozen)
Ranch Oyster Crackers (oyster crackers baked with ranch seasoning)
Skittles
Vegetables and fruit
Popcorn

So far I have done pretty good, but I have to admit that I have a ways to go because I usually have a rumbly stomach pretty soon after one of these snacks.

Does anyone have any suggestions for good, filling, healthy, nut-free snacks?  Please, share your wisdom.
