You're Home Alone, Dieting and Starved. What is Your Low-Fat Snack?

Asked by Aster (20021points) July 14th, 2010

It seems like all good snacks are fattening. Am I wrong? I like chips and guacomole and will buy baked chips today. What is a semi-filling low-fat snack or does such an animal exist?

Well I am not a dieter, but I really like to snack on almonds. There a lots of different flavors. They are not “low fat” but they are pretty healthy.

Oatcakes with low-fat cream-cheese.

I don’t know about low fat… I don’t pay much attention to fat as I do calories.

An entire can of tuna is between 80 and 100 calories. I add some celery and the smallest amount of light miracle whip as makes it palatable, and throw it on a salad, or add some lettuce and eat it on a tortilla. Probably cut it in half and share it with my little one.

Hummus and pita chips is a low fat snack, and very cheap to make on your own, both hummus and pita. Sometimes I like a salad but eating only veggies makes me hungrier so I usually pair it with bread.

Ummmm, i don’t really do the low fat snack thing, but i do like raw carrots dipped in mayo. Or raw celery dipped in sweet chilli sauce. Or tomato with sour cream on. Or a homemade fruit (banana and mango) smoothie! Or a fruit salad with plain greek yoghurt on top drizzled with honey.

I’ve never done a diet per se. But when I’m healthy snackin’ I go for hummus and baby carrots or almonds.

Hummus is sold in the cooler section either by the specialty cheeses or near the cold cut meats.

Sugar free jello can be tasty for a sweet snack as well.

Nuts of all kinds, dark chocolate.

I eat a Luna Bar, or a small bag of peanuts (probably a lot of fat in the nuts, but they hold me over)

@Aster I only thought of the oatcakes because I visited Scotland this week and brought some home.
