What time do you snack and what are you snacking on??


Do you plan your snacks or just find something to snack on when you get hungry?

I do kind of sort of plan my snacks Julie,
In my mind I tell myself my choices ..
For example I have the WW string cheese & snack size cottage cheese.
I keep those handy along with apples.
And of course I always have the carrots & celery.
I eat every two hours *some* days ..
Say at 10am is a snack, noon is lunch, 2 pm another snack.
That's also because I keep a *mental* tally of my calories.
As well as make sure I eat a bit before I exercise/walk :)

I've just been thinking that I should really plan my snacks instead of snacking on whatever I find in the fridge.

There's a recipe for a spinach dip that I found that other day that I would like to try. I also want to make baba ghanoush and get some hummus and have that in the fridge. Whatever is sweet I get from fruits (which I am trying to eat on a regular basis instead of a handful of times a year). I much prefer savoury foods to sweet ones.

I agree Poppy, planning seems to really help everything so why not plan snacking too:)

One time I bought Kashi's cracker similar to triscuit. That was awful.


I use Ritz's low fat. Cannot even tell from the regular one.


I forgot I can snack on fruit with cottage cheese, non fat fig newtons, cheese sticks.
