Re: Crackers? healthy snacks?

I am not much for crackers--to much sugar and flour. I would say if you are trying to gain weight, nuts would make a good snack. They are high in protein and dense in calories. Almonds are especially good. For additional health benefits, I would eat these unsalted. You can find unsalted nuts in the produce section of your local grocery store. Dried fruits are good, but watch for added sugar-I discovered most have it!

Re: Crackers? healthy snacks?

cheese and crackers are good...knwoing your background sammy, i wouldnt focus on finding low sugar low carb muffins (carrot/bran) are good, especially if you bake them yourself and freeze them! I personally like cottage cheese, applesauce, fruits, veggies and dip (ie salad dressing), snack mixes/trail mixes, granola bars, cheese strings, crackers and cheese, ham chunks (or deli meat rolled up), pb and j sandwich (or spread on crackers), popcorn,yogurt, pretzels, NUTS (like mentioned), juice, cookies and milk (i know, but to be honest, when gaining weight, a calorie IS a calorie and does nto matter if its from apples or cake...its just a matter of the nutrients you get in, and given your background i would say do NOT limit what you can eat)...just about anything is ok in moderation

SammyT I think crackers are a very good choice!! The cheese adds a nice touch as well. I agree that popcorn and pretzels are a very good idea. There is also some low fat chips and rice cakes that you can chose from. Don't worry about the calories in those. A little bit of sugar is good for you! Anyways have fun and I'm glad your putting on weight in a healthy way!
