When that late-night craving hits, stay out of the pantry and grab a handful of frozen red grapes instead. Did you know that frozen grapes have a texture similar to ice cream?

4. Blueberries

Combine 1/4 cup blueberries and 1 teaspoon honey with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt for an ultra creamy snack.

5. Popcorn (2 cups) air popped with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and black pepper

Enjoy two cups air-popped popcorn with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and a sprinkle of black pepper for a snack that hits the spot every time. Or, try Skinny Popcorn, which comes in individual bags with only 100 calories per serving. Now that’s delish!

      Robyn, The snacks that have recipes have the carbs listed when you go to the recipe. Otherwise, you can google how many carbs berries, nuts, etc. have. 🙂

    I had weight loss surgery and need high protein low carbs. No white flour or sugar I find it difficult to make baked goods I would like a basic muffin recipe that I can add pumpkin, apples, bananas and any other fruit I need help me to stay on track I typically add protein powder to things I make to help increase protein counts I use a flavorless protein powder My family thought they were being nice and bought me a cake a bakery cake, guess they don’t get no sugar no white flour
    Thank you for helping me keep off 110 pounds and continue to lose. You can’t imagine how grateful I am
