i live with my parents and two younger brothers, all omnis. yeah we have fruit and veggies, but the kitchen is packed with crackers, chips, bread, basically LOTS of junk food. i plan out my meals every day, but sometimes i need to give in to snacking. i do have one little cupboard filled with stuff for me, right now it contains luna bars, kashi oatmeal, granola, whole wheat pasta, nonparishable things like that. im going on a big food shopping trip in 2 days to get my stuff for the upcoming week, and im sick of snacking on unhealty foods. i'm going to shaws and i believe that they have a large natural foods section. what are some healthy, preferably vegan (im thinking about making the transformation to it!), low calorie nonperishable snacks?

Natural nut butters are a great staple to have in the kitchen.<br><br>
Soy crisps are a great source of protein<br><br>
Packaged hummus mixes<br><br>
Pita chips<br><br>
Whole grain\\spelt crackers<br><br>
Dried fruit<br><br>
nuts<br><br><br><br>
Don't worry so much about calories as snacks that will keep you energized and satisfied!

I you really want a non-perishable low-cal vegan snack, I say air-popped popcorn is the way to go. A jar of popcorn kernels stores for ages in the pantry. You don't need to invest in an air popper, either. You can do it right in the <a href="http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=160269" target="_blank">microwave</a>. (I suggest using two staples to close the paper bag. Alton Brown, the god of all things kitchen, says it's OK.)<br><br><br><br><a href="http://lancaster.unl.edu/food/ciqtips-apr03-popcorn.htm" target="_blank">Popcorn Seasoning Suggestions</a><br><br><br><br>
Apples also store pretty well and are a nutritious lo-cal snack.
