I know for me, crunch is king. I love crunchy foods and that is the problem when it comes to snack time. here are some good ones that I go to usually.
Craving something crunchy? Give up the chips, and go for a healthier choice, like nuts, seeds, or raw veggies. Here are some Phase-specific snack suggestions that pack a crunch!
Phase 1 Snacks
Raw veggies — including green or red bell peppers, cauliflower and broccoli florets. Serve with reduced-fat cheese, nonfat Greek yogurt, or a bean-based dip (or offer a South Beach Diet-friendly dressing as an accompaniment)
Celery sticks with 2 tablespoons natural no-sugar-added peanut butter (count toward your daily nut/seed allowance)
Soy nuts or dry-roasted edamame (count 1/4 cup toward your daily nut/seed allowance)
Almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios, dry-roasted peanuts, or other nuts (limit to one 1/4-cup serving once a day, which can be counted towards your daily nut/seed allowance)
Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds (count 1 ounce or 3 tablespoons toward your daily nut/seed allowance)
Phases 2 and 3 Snacks
Whole-grain crackers (3 g or more fiber per ounce)
High-fiber, low-sugar, whole-grain cereal (choose a low-sugar brand with 5 g or more fiber per serving)
Air-popped or microwavable popcorn (3 cups; check the label to be sure it doesn't contain trans fats)
Toasted whole-wheat pita bread (choose varieties with 3 g fiber per pita), sliced into triangle; serve with hummus
Toasted whole-wheat or whole-grain tortillas or wraps, sliced into triangles; serve with salsa or a bean-based dip
