Favorite Snack?

brilynn79 Nov 18, 2009 08:56 PM

I am trying to snack a little more...just wondering what some of your favorite snack combinations are?

My go to snacks have been...

Air popped popcorn sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with dill and freshly grated cheese

Crostinis with fig goat cheese and fig preserves

Honeycrisp apple slices dipped in ricotta with sprinkled with cinnimon and drizzled with honey

Lend me some more suggestions...

          I've just discovered figs. I love them for a snack, right out of the container. Something dark about their sweetness. Haven't tried Calimyrna figs yet, but the mission figs I've been eating are very good.

            For me, roasted carrots sprinkled liberally with sea salt

            Hard-boiled egg whites and any fruit (right now I'm on a persimmon kick or honeydew)

            Cottage cheese mixed with cooked barley or brown rice, sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon

            Baba Ghanous and pita

            Quesadilla with whole wheat tortilla and low fat cheddar/jack cheeses

            Scooped Potato skin filled with low fat cheese, cottage cheese and salsa or beans and salsa

            Lentil Salad in a Pita

            Roasted Sliced Peaches sprinkled with Cinnamon

              How do you hard boil egg whites?

                My guess would be to just boil the egg normally and remove the yolk when finished :)

                  Then why not eat the whole thing? What happens to the yokes? You're no fun :)

                    my dog loves the yolks, and they're good for his coat!

                      I've done the same when I need a yoke for a recipe but not the white. I'll MW and they get a little treat.

              Crostinis with brie and carmelized onions

              A really fantasic chicken wing, fried naked (no breading) tossed wtih a my hot sauce & blue cheese dip

              Popcorn with parm cheese and garlic salt

              I also love a honecrisp apple, but with a hint of salt, will have to try the ricotta though

              Smashed Avocado / bacon and toast

                Wow that's tough! For me it depends on what I'm in the mood for.

                Pita points and hummus
                Prune bread and tea
                Spinach and Feta Flan (just a small wedge)
                Sweet potato chips
                Tuna and crackers
                Homemade trail mix
                Red Bean and Raisin Bread with low fat cream cheese
                Pear wedges with feta cheese

                  Dried cherries
                  Another vote for figs in any form
                  Pita with hummus or labneh
                  Cashews (or really any kind of nut)--I prefer them roasted and unsalted.
                  Frico (fried rounds of grated, hard Italian cheese)
                  Crostini or toasted bread with olive tapenade
                  And those maddeningly addictive Japanese rice crackers that I have only once in a while because no matter how much I buy, they are all gone within a day or two.
