Good small meals/snacks for weight loss?

Anybody know any good websites with lots of ideas about good snacks or small meals (that take little or no preparation)?

I know the 5 or 6 "small meals" a day is a much better way to go, but find it difficult to cook a lot. I was hoping for some ideas for easy foods that are good and healthy for weight loss (without spending an ENTIRE diet of raw carrots).

I cant think of a particular website - but i am the queen of 200 calorie snack/meals

My favorite snack and/or breakfast:

1/2 cup dry cereal or granola (i use kashi puffins cause they are low in cal and high in fiber)
1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 T Jam (or fresh fruit)

A way to make veggies more appetizing: dip in hummus.

Omlette with lots of veggies, nonfat cheese (TJ has ones that taste yummy as long as they are melted) and made with liquid egg. I make a HUMONGOUS one with only 150 calories for breakfast, supplemted with a small bran muffin.

or instead of eggs - just take a tortilla and make a quesadilla with veggies and melted cheese.

mini bag of popcorn and an apple.

fruit smoothie - just throw some yogurt and frozen fruit in a blender and voila

low fat wheat thins and lite laughing cow cheese and grapes

in a rush? yogurt parfait from mcD - or that new walnut salad (i am dying to try it but i rarely go

This would be good, but I can't find a salsa that I like. I make my own sometimes, but it is a little bit of work.


Great ideas all....thanks...keep 'em coming!

Stallone's protein pudding that taste good and can be a good snack.. 20 grams of protein and 100 calories... You can buy them at GNC.. The chocolate taste better than the Vanilla..
