Any fruits or vegetables are healthy...watermelon this time of year is great and has alot of health benefits...drinking more water throughout the day will help you as well....it wont make you feel as hungry... Also if you are wanting to lose weight you should eat at least 6 times a day and small portions along with a good exercise regiment...it will increase your metabolism and hence you will lose weight the worst thing you can do is starve yourself... So try that and remember losing weight is losing your current lifestyle of eating habits and relearning some better ones so that you can MAINTAIN your weight proportionately....best of luck to you...

Almonds and walnuts are great and super healthy. Any type of nuts are good for you but those are probably the best. Seeds like pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are also good. Hard-boiled eggs are also a super easy and healthy snack. You could also get some trail mix, but watch out for the kinds with all the candies and chocolates in them. Fruits and veggies with dip like hummus is a good choice also. Other options are apples or bananas with peanut butter, Greek yogurt, dried fruits (without added sugars or preservatives.) You can also make your own healthy snack mix by mixing nuts, seeds, some raisins or other dried fruits or your own seasonings. A delicious snack I have every day is plain Greek yogurt drizzled with honey, granola, cinnamon, and some berries or other fruit. Hope this helped!

Almonds Baby carrots Celery sticks Broccoli florets Apples Oranges Pears Fresh berries Grapes Whole-grain bagels Animal crackers Pretzels Salsa and baked tortilla chips Low-fat cottage cheese Whole-grain snack crackers Reduced-calorie, fat-free yogurt Low fat quick breads and muffins, such as pumpkin, zucchini, banana or bran. Shakes with low fat milk or yogurt and fruit. Ants on a log — Spread peanut butter on celery sticks and top with raisins. Banana ice — Peel several very ripe bananas, break them into 1-inch pieces, and freeze the pieces in a sealed plastic bag. Just before serving, whirl the pieces in the blender with a small amount of water or juice. Serve right away. Add berries for a different flavor or top with fruit or nuts. Mini pizzas — Spoon pizza sauce onto half a bagel, English muffin, or mini pita. Top with low-fat mozzarella cheese and your favorite veggies and toast or bake at a low setting until the cheese is melted and the bagel is crispy. Healthy ice pops — Freeze fresh, unsweetened 100% juice in ice pop molds or ice cube trays. Happy trails mix — Combine 1 cup whole-grain toasted oat cereal with 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup dried cranberries for a healthy trail mix.

Carrots w/ lowfat ranch is one. Celery w/ peanut butter or cream cheese. Eat a few slices of cheese off a block. Or just drink a glass of water. Most people mistake dehydration as a need to snack. Drink a glass or two of ice cold water and see if that doens't make you feel better.

um fruits like oranges, and grapes are good. Bananas are a good complex carbohydrate. peanut butter and whole wheat. crackers, are a good souce of protiens and grains. yogurt is a great after school snack, but you have to be sure and watch the ammount of calories in them.

**I highly recommend making these with the micro bacon tray as suggested in the recipe (buy one for 4 bucks at Wal-Mart). You are less likely to have them stick. I've been meaning to try these with some dry packaged ranch dressing mix next time to see how they taste. Also, I would suggest thoroughly rinsing the potato slices and patting them dry before cooking otherwise you get a very strong starch taste. ** Microwave Potato Chips These potato chips are very easy to make in the microwave. Also, they are healthier for you as they are not cooked in any oils. This method has intrigued so many people that have tasted them and then made them for themselves. The younger people just love them. 4 medium potatoes (russet, yellow gold or red potatoes) Spices or herbs, such as granulated garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne, dried dill weed or anything else you can come up with If potatoes are old, peel and slice thin, 1/16" in thickness, slicing across the potato. If the potatoes are new or good skins, DO NOT PEEL, just scrub well, then slice them 1/16" in thickness, slicing across the potato. Sprinkle with your choice of spices or herbs or just leave them plain. If you have a microwave bacon tray, place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer. Cover with a microwaveable, round heavy plastic cover. Microwave on HIGH (full power) for 7 to 8 minutes. Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave. You do not have to turn the sliced potatoes over. If you do not have a bacon tray, use a microwave safe casserole dish. Rub the inside of the dish with some olive oil for the first batch of potato chips. I do not know why, but I find that if you do not rub oil the first time, some chips will tend to stick to the dish. After the first batch is done, you do not have to rub the dish again. Continue to microwave the remainder of sliced potatoes as noted above. 4 servings http://www.recipezaar.com/47195 I've also heard these are very good, even for those who don't like chickpeas, but I haven't had a chance to try them yet so can't rate it for you. Roasted Chickpeas Servings | 4 Preparation Time | 5 min Cooking Time | 50 min Level of Difficulty | Easy A low-fat snack alternative to cocktail nuts, these spicy beans also taste great tossed into salads. Ingredients 1 serving olive oil cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving) 2 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes Instructions 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. 2. Spread chickpeas on baking sheet and sprinkle with garlic powder and red pepper; toss to coat. 3. Roast on bottom rack of oven, shaking pan about every 15 minutes, until browned and crunchy, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool before serving. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
