    What's your favorite healthy snack food that you always keep on hand to snack on?

    I always keep almonds and baby carrots on hand for when the munchies strike.

    * Roasted, unsalted nuts (filberts, almonds, walnuts, peanuts) and seeds (sunflower, pumpkin); unsweetened, dried fruit in winter.
    * Fresh fruit (apples are a staple), baby carrots and, sometimes, hard-boiled eggs (boiled by the dozen, kept in a vinegar solution).
    * I usually avoid industrial snack foods, but I sometimes stash salty baked pretzels or Japanese dry-roasted wasabi green peas.
    * Dried medjool dates – pitted – filled with cream cheese.
    * Half an avocado with lemon or lime juiced squeezed into the hollow, a little salt, a lot of black pepper and a spoon.
    * Toasted wholewheat pita triangles (or Lebanese flatbread) and/or assorted crudités served with home-made houmus for dipping.
    * Toasted peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches OR with peanut butter and marinated hot banana peppers (the oil rinsed off).
    * At home, while watching films or reading, I snack on freshly air-popped corn, unadorned or with a very fine drizzle of olive oil.

    I usually go for some pretzels, those are really good to me. I also like fresh fruit, fat free yogurt or maybe carrots.

    Raw Broccoli and Cauliflower florets, Celery sticks, baby Carrots, Pepper strips, Apples, Oranges, Pears, Bananas.

    My favorite snack though (in moderation) is air popped popcorn spritzed with Olivio! and sometimes with different herbs and spices.

    Pickles - Just don't buy pickles containing any added sugars or artificial colors. Some pickles are loaded with sugar. The average-sized dill spear is only 15 calories.

    Sugar Free Jello - sometimes with a little added fruit. Its great frozen into bars too.

    When you can find it - sugar free, fat free frozen yogurt - TCBY makes an excellent one. In the UK there is a brand called "Yodel" made by 'Criterion Ices' that makes a GREAT Blackberry frozen yogurt. Criterion also makes a diabetic vanilla ice cream that is pretty good.

    Frozen Mango's - See if you can get bags of fresh cut mango cubes at your produce counter - throw the whole bag in the freezer: great on a hot day or in a glass of iced tea.

    I'm all about the raw almonds.

    Also, raw broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrots, and pea pods with hummus. mmmMMM!

    If I'm in the mood for something sweet, I indulge with nutella or peanut butter on rice cakes.

    I've been trying to find really good healthy snack foods that are tastier than celery or almonds (I just don't care for the taste of almonds, I find them boring).

    Besides bananas, which always make a tasty treat, I just discovered a most yummy and crunchy snack. They're called Doctor Kracker. Full of organic whole grains, and very filling (even just a few).

    ugh... I am getting so tired of raw almonds :-P

    I like fruit (mostly bananas, oranges, apples, raspberries, grapes, raisins... *love* strawberries & peaches when I can get em);

    baby carrots & celery sticks with the ranch dressing that's so low in fat & calories that it must incorporate captured alien technology;

    low-fat/no-sugar-added/made-from-the-tears-of-anorexics yoghurt with strawberry mixed in;

    light peanut butter & strawberry jam sandwiches;

    and lately I've really been enjoying this recipe I found for nuts.. 3 cups of assorted nuts (I mostly stick with 1/1/1 of almonds, pecan pieces and walnut pieces), coated in a mixture that's made by whisking 1 egg white & 1 tbsp of orange juice until it's foamy, then mixing in 2/3 cup of Splenda (recipe called for sugar but this way I have no guilt whatsoever), 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of allspice & 1/2 tsp of ginger, and an optional tbsp of grated orange peel (which I don't bother with). Once the nuts are coated you bake them in a 10x15x1" pan for 45-50 mins at 250 stirring them every 15 mins or so. It tastes like Christmas, not a word of a lie, they're wickedly addictive-- enough so that they weaned me off my honey-roasted peanut habit. Beware the Christmas nuts, though... they can make you a bit nutty... like, such that you start spending *way* too much on nuts from the bulk store. :-P
