so i bought some red beets for the first time at the grocery store the other day and i roasted them last night. i just made a great snack - 1/2 cup sliced really thin, sprinkled with red wine vinegar and tossed with 1 tbsp. crumbled feta. it was so good, a nice amount of volume, plus i got a vegetable serving in. check out the points value, it's really low.

dried fruits
carrot sticks
celery sticks
pretzels (I like the sticks because, while a serving is the same weight, you get more sticks than twists in a serving - I feel like I'm eating more)
sliced cucumber (drizzle a little rice wine vinegar and add a sprinkle of sesame seeds - win)
roasted veggies (I like roasted Brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, and sweet potato for snacks) 

SHANNA14: I just discovered the best snack..that is if you are a cheese lover like me
1 cup of celery sticks (which is usually 2 stalks cut up) and a wedge of Laughing Cow light swiss cheese! You know those ones that come in the round thing
Oh my gosh, it is the best snack EVER. Its my new fave!

1/2 cup FF cottage cheese
2 oz Fage 0%
1 tsp. honey
1 cup cut up strawberries

I have a yogurt parfait :
1 cup of plain FF yogurt
1/2 cup of Fiber One cereal (original)
1/2 cup of my favorite fruit (lately its blueberries)
and a tsp. of honey or splenda to add a little sweet.

It's all "filling foods" and it's a large portion. I heart it!

REIKIBALANCE: I make a fantastic open faced tomato/cheese snack:

1 slice of highfiber bread toasted
1 wedge laughing cow cheese (garlic herb)
1 slice tomato
splash olive oil and bals. vin.
salt paper
