    Snacks V2: Healthy Edition

    We already have several threads for fast food, snacks, and all that bad shit, but how about a healthy snack thread as well?

    Let's start with an obvious one...



    I'm not sure how 'healthy' it really is, since fruit has a ton of sugar in it, but there's nothing better than a nice fruit salad. As long as you're subbing it in over candy, it certainly makes for a much healthier alternative.

    I like this idea and I'm sure I'll take some notes from this thread when I've finished my current weight loss programme and entered maintenance or 'refeeding'. I do love me some fruit salad though. I'm not sure how much I can add myself. I don't really have many great ideas when it comes to food and I can't really cook. A few years ago I loved making wholemeal wraps with grilled salmon, onions and/or other veggies inside. Wholemeal cheese (might want to go with the low-fat cheddar) and onion sandwiches are one of my favourites, and the Americans I've asked have never heard of a cheese and onion sandwich. (If you haven't noticed already, onions may be my favourite vegetable.)

    My above mentions probably don't even qualify as snacks per se anyway. I used to make my own juices quite often. I'd just throw anything in, be it apples, bananas, blueberries, cucumbers, kiwis, lemons, limes, oranges, spinach, watermelon, or whatever else I thought of. Obviously not in any random order as the results wouldn't always be so tasty. Nothing beats an ice-cold juice you've made yourself on a hot summer day. Except maybe an ice-cold Dr Pepper...

    That was my idea, as well. Hearing about your diet progress has motivated me to begin my own, so hopefully this will be useful for the both of us, as well as anyone else hoping to follow suit, or just eat better in general.

    Agreed, onions are the best! I always love a good cheese and onion sandwich. I can't believe there are people who have never heard of it, they're missing out. Wraps are a great substitute for bread, as well-- not so much if you go filling it with fried chicken, bacon and cheese like I usually do. I'm not big on fish, but turkey and ham, lean meats in general seem like they'd be a healthier alternative.

    Bacon isn't as unhealthy as it's made out to be, but lean meats are definitely better for you. I'd definitely agree that filling a wrap with fried chicken is a bad idea though. I wish I didn't love the stuff so much. Eggs are very healthy and it's quite easy to get creative with them and make some nice, light snacks. Or even custom omelettes! Mixing finely-chopped boiled (or steamed in my case) egg with a little bit of butter and a sprinkle of salt is delicious. (Better yet in a wholemeal sandwich.) Just to note, butter isn't the enemy. Of course, "everything in moderation", but butter will always be healthier than margarine.

    Apparently I'm weird for it to some people, but I really like raw tomatoes as a snack. Yes, you heard me: raw. I take it out of the fridge and eat it. That's it. No prep whatsoever. That said, as a kid, I also ate lemons as a snack (and by that I mean I'd cut one in half and eat the guts out of it while my grandmother watched in wonder as to how a kid could eat something so sour calmly). Basically, I like fruit in general. Plums, apricots, bananas (which are technically berries, which are also awesome in general)...Heck, my NAME is a fruit. Yes, juneberries are a fruit. Google it. :'D

    That said I'm not opposed to veggies either. My dad actually was a HUGE veggie eater when I was younger to the point we used to tease him and call him a rabbit (his staple foods for a while were carrots and celery). Unfortunately, he didn't really realize at the time that celery is high in salt if you eat an ENTIRE STALK which he did regularly. And he is sensitive to salt with his blood pressure. Soooo that was a bust. He still loves it and carrots though. I tend to prefer potatoes, which are technically quasi-healthy. I also like cheese, by itself, sometimes. I can eat cottage cheese as a meal. Or as a snack.

    By the way, cottage cheese goes great with fruit!

    I love brocolli and celery. Any time I get wings, I'll eat every piece of celery, mostly thanks to the fact that most people I know don't really like celery lol. But I'll certainly keep the salt levels in mind, June. I never knew they were that salty.
    I also used to not like eggs at all when I was younger, but know I really like them. Scrambled or in an omelette, eggs are lovely.

    Yeah, it won't be a problem unless you eat constant celery.I like broccoli too, but prefer cauliflower. Peas are great too. Not sure why.

    I love cooked brocollli with a little soy sauce. I could eat that stuff like popcorn. It's amazing.
    Peas are good, too. Especially in pasta.
    And I think I'm one of the only people that loves lima beans. Lol.

    I feel your pain, Hari. Okay, here's one: making sweet potato chips, or thick fries to the Americans.

    Not quite as tasty as normal potato, but still pretty good. Why do things have to taste worse to be healthier? If there's a god he's a colossal troll.

    (Also, I thought you might like this link, Hari: http://www.rogermwilcox.com/vegetable/index.html)
