  20. Erica

    It’s too hard to pick one, so I’ll say grapefruit, string cheese, and apples with peanut butter. I also LOVE the Skinny Cow ice cream bars, which are low in fat and calories for those of us with a killer sweet-tooth. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. schnebly

    The favorite snack at our house is raisins and almonds. . crunchy and sweet just like a snack should be!

    This is what I totally enjoy, although I haven’t named it. You get the pouch tuna flavored smoked salmon add only the whites of boiled eggs and mix in sliced celery. Add some mustard and salt and pepper (maybe a dash of vinegar), mix up well and wrap it in lettuce. I totally love it. Thanks

  24. Kacy & Adam

    Fresh pineapple…always delicious! I also love a good fresh garden cucumber or tomato ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Nadine

    My favorite healthy treat is frozen red grapes (Costco has the best grapes!). They are really good at curing that sweet tooth!

  28. Janie

    Our favorite snack in our house is Granny Smith apples with peanut butter. You get the great sweet/tart taste and crispness of the apples, with the savory taste of the peanut butter. A little carb, protein, and fat all rolled into one. It’s amazing at curbing those awful cravings!

  29. Brandon and Melani

    Hmmm…I have many, but I love Laughing Cow cheese(the onion flavored one is the best)!!! I usually eat it with either an apple or a serving of crackers or pretzel crisps.

  30. Meghan

    There’s a lot, but I’d probably say plain strawberries or cut up apples with a little fruit dip. The women in my husband’s family have a strong history of heart disease, so it’s a cause that’s important to me. Great giveaway Jenny!

    Anyways, great giveaway!!

    Fresh pineapple (not the canned kind) with or without cottage cheese. YUM! Or carrot sticks with ranch dip (I use non fat sour cream)


    Well, we love alot of healthy snacks around here. I am not too big on unhealthy snacks, actually. Chips just don’t do it for me. One thing my kids and I love is to mix cottage cheese with ranch mix and eat it on whole grain crackers.

  135. Nichole Lowe

    Lately it has been trailmix. Just a little goes a long way and seems to feel me up until dinner. I love all the different nuts and raisins. It gives you sweet, salty just a bit of everything.

  136. nicole

    I’m a huge fan of fruit salads. But Grapes and pineapple are my fav to snack on!

  138. grey like snuffie

    Light Laughing Cow Cheese wedge spread on celery! The Garlic and Herb variety is a BURST of flavor that completes the celery crunch—it’s not chocolate but it tastes great anyway.
