Re: YUMMY low calorie snacks...not just carrot sticks
I love your idea of including veggies in the snack. I try to eat a lot of filling low-calorie veggies as part of my lunch and dinner, but I forget about them when I am looking for something in the afternoon to stabilize my blood sugar so I don't go crazy before dinner.
I often cut up some fruit, and eat it with a bit of ground almonds and maybe some plain low-fat yoghurt or quark. A thin coating of nut-butter on a couple of whole-grain rice crackers is nice too.
