    I'm wondering what y'all's favorite, yet odd, healthy snack is. You know, when everyone else is reaching for the Doritos while watching TV, you're tearing into....

    I'll start.

    I snack on canned salt free green beans. Delish.

    I don't know if I consider any food odd... but then I've eaten guinea pig and fried crickets.

    For snacking I usually like pumpkin seeds or almonds. Not so odd. When I'm in one of my "screw it" moods (thankfully, very infrequent), I like cheese and hot wings.

    I used to work with a guy who studied the workings of cricket guts. He had a lot of leftover crickets. At journal club, we sometimes had "chocolate chirp" cookies.

    What did you think of them? I was kind of surprised. As repulsive as that is to Western tastes, once you get past what it is, I thought it wasn't too bad.

    Oh, having them caked in butter and brown sugar is hardly a fair test.

    Now show me a man who can put away a plate of live grubs... or a big bowl of Gagh.

    Ok,

    1. I take a wheat hot dog bun, and put all natural peanut butter (peanuts and salt), sugar-free strawberry jam, and a banana in it.

    2. Canned peas, canned italian diced tomatoes, and parmesan cheese...cold

    3. Frozen veges steamed with sweet chili sauce

    4. Not odd, but random, wheat toast at any time of the day with sugar free jam

    OK, well as much as I'd like to believe that everyone on here reaches for nothing but healthy food, I'm willing to admit that sometimes I reach for whatever I can find in the pantry...yep, chips, crackers, candy.....call me bad, terrible, loser but I'm honest. I do try and eat fruit and veggies during the day but sometimes I just can't resist being bad! LOL Anyone else want to be HONEST instead of good!

    A 4 serving tub of vanilla yogurt, I know plain is better for us but it tastes horrible. I'll run the calories off tomorrow.
