Hey there,
I thought I would share a few of my favorite snack ideas in case you have not tried these: This is for the abs diet, but could work for many others too.

-Celery sticks with hummus (Athenos roasted red pepper)Or serve with whole grain melba toast, but I feel a better about the celery as it's a "free" food.

-Slice an apple, cut a tiny bit of lowfat cheese and place on apple slices and eat with almonds. Also try peppermint tea with it. This in an Oprah recommended snack and it's really good and satisfying.

-Chocolate Protein smoothie:
Bunch of crushed ice,
1 scoop chocolate whey powder
little lowfat vanilla yogurt
little lite vanilla soymilk
approx. 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 packet stevia sweetner
Blend it up and serve immediately. The crushed ice gives it volume and makes it frosty. I served these to my family tonight and my kids said "this is the best milkshake ever!" This makes a whole blender full.

Fruit smoothie
make with light vanilla soy milk, non fat vanilla yogurt, vanilla whey powder, strawberries and crushed ice, also a packet of stevia. It's like a strawberry milkshake.

1% cottage cheese with lite peaches or pears
