Just wondering what you snack on during the day between meals? Besides fruit and veggies.

A handful of almonds, cashews and pistachio nuts. I buy the natural unsalted ones. I find these great to snack on between meals

Babybel light cheese and vita wheat crackers (the ones like rice crackers)

A dozen almonds, a small handful of goji berries or some prunes.
Or I'll drink a low fat protein shake/smoothie (ie almond milk, banana, protein powder) to fill me up if I'm really hungry.

Nuts. I find a cup of tea can get me through, or a bottle of diet ginger beer (rare).

Our household has recently discovered cottage cheese and Vita Weats / crackers. I'd never been game to try it before, as it looks so yuck, but it is actually quite nice! DH's personal trainer recommended it.
DH (and occasionally I) have Vita Brits and low fat milk too, if we need a little something extra.

I make a point not to snack. If I do it's a quick way to go over my calorie allowance. I prefer to just have a bigger, healthier lunch/dinner.

Almonds and macadamia nuts, unsalted and unroasted.

Raw almonds, water crackers, veg sticks and hummus. If I am having a light lunch and dinner I have a slice of toast and honey (no butter) about threeish; it's only 100cal.

We are suckers for a bit of dip with rice crackers as a pre dinner snack...
During the day I tend to not really snack. If I do, it is popcorn, toast or fruit....

I rarely snack in the day but if I do it's cheese and crackers, mini size chocolate bar or two or a treat like fresh fruit juice or chocolate cake from my local cafe.

Just fruit and veg! I know "high protein" is popular but I don't follow that way of eating so specifically avoid nuts in particular.

I'm a terrible snacker so have to be careful. At the moment my go to snacks are:
Fruit & nut protein balls
cheese or nut butter and crackers
fruit (and if I've had a fairly light breakfast or lunch some yoghurt and/or muesli)
a small (like about 10) handful of raw nuts and/or some dried fruit

I have one apple a day and all other snacks are protein - shaved turkey or ham, chicken, a handful of roasted chic peas, small tin of flavoured tuna or meatballs.

I try not to snack, but I'll usually take some almonds to work. I find that having the 'back up' of snacks in fine, it's when I don't have them on hand that I get hungry!!
Otherwise I just drink green and peppermint tea.

Junk at the moment, but usually fruit, nuts, tins of tuna, shaved meat, crackers. It really varies.

I just ate 3 corn thins plain by themselves as it's all I had in my drawer at work! LOL!

I'd like to know the recipe for the green smoothie too
At the moment I have a large breakfast (rolled oats, sultanas, almonds and soy milk), so don't need a snack mid morning like I used to.
Mid afternoon I will have fruit, and if I am really hungry some cashew nuts
