  • A couple of wasa crackers with some mashed avocado on top keeps me full for awhile..i put a little dash of salt on top to help with that craving. salty/crunchy

    ff greek yogurt, plain, with berries and honey helps with the sweet and also is very filling.

    Celery with pb or hummus or (someone recommended) hot sauce!

    Fruit-any kind!

    Greek yogurt with cinnamon and vanilla tossed in.

    Mozz cheese stick


  • Clif Mojo Salty & Sweet Honey Nut or Peanut Butter Nut bars... nom nom nom...
  • pita chips for a salty snack

    Greek yogurt, bananas, other seasonal fruit like cherries, dates, a few slices of turkey and some cheese (laughing cow is good for this) with crackers, Kashi TLC bars, banana soft serve...

    For salt - I am pretty liberal with my sea salt shaker and will add it to regular veggies to get my fix.  Look into Kale chips, too!
