I'm addicted to hummus and make about 3 cans a week. So much healthier and tastier than storebought.

Also, three bean salad.
Nuts and fruit.
Vegetable soup.
Roasted chickpeas.

Great topic! Looking forward to hearing other ideas!

Snacking is a great way to end up overweight-in fact right now on my browser there's thread full of people complaining about being fat-I wonder how they got that way?

Snacking helps me maintain my weight, since if I have a small healthy snack or two throughout the day I won't pig out at meals. At 30 years old, I have never been out of the "healthy" BMI range in my life, and I snack every day.

To The OP: my fave snacks are baby carrots with salsa, fruit with nut butters, trail mix (I make my own), Larabars, hummus and crackers.

Probably not from healthy snacks. Just a guess.

That makes it sound like you think people shouldn't snack at all. Snacking has actually helped people to maintain weight, and those who need to gain weight. I snack all day, just so I can maintain my weight (I use more calories than I eat).

Now, back on subject:

Chips and salsa (I know it's not that healthy, but it's a favorite of mine)
Carrots,
Celery and peanut butter (not sure if you like peanut butter or not)
Grapes
Strawberries
Crackers

Huh? Long as your not eating a box of Oreos or bag Potato Chips you should be ok.

Ive lost almost 45 pounds with a diet that involves incorporating snacks into my lifestyle. As long you factor in calorie in-take for the day with your snacks and don't eat huge meals it actually will help you lose weight by speeding up your metabolism.

My Favs are

Greek Yogurt
Granola
Raisins
Bananas
Mixed Nuts
Pickles
Peanut Butter on English Muffin
Fruit of pretty much any kind

I have a bad snacking problem and I'm trying to switch to healthier snacks.

Nibs, carob chips, pistachio nuts, popcorn, apple sauce, smoothies, vegan microwave brownie, veggies and hummus, crackers, vegan pudding, vegan yogurt, tea, fruit salads, crunchy chickpeas, kale chips, chips and salsa or guacamole, spoonful of peanut butter.... the list could go on.

Snacking is great; it allows you to have more of a variety and experiment with fun little foods!
One could argue smaller meals as opposed to three heavy meals a day works out better for you. I'm not sure of the ins and outs but it's certainly more interesting that way! :)
My favourite snacks at the moment are:

~ Apples
~ Rice cakes
~ Corn rolls ('Amaizin' organic ones are great)
~ Cereal (adore 'Hale & Hearty Honey Bee Pops' right now!)
~ Spicy Lentil Rolls
~ Toast with Raspberry Jam
~ Herbal Tea (particularly Peppermint and Rose, Hibiscus & Vanilla)

Spicy Lentil Rolls sound yummy! Are they something you make yourself?

I'm snacking all the time... And I'm right now very happily maintaining my weight, no problemo. Also lost weight while snacking constantly. I eat much better when I have several small snacks during the day instead of having three big meals.

Anyway, I love snacking on tomatoes, chips, liquorice, oranges, mandarines, lemons, bread with peanut butter, grapefruits, apples, kiwi fruit, ananas, etc. Yum. (I know, chips and sweets aren't the most healthy, but I don't eat them so often.)

Bill Barilko, you seem to have the unhealthy habit of hijacking threads with random posts that seem to be aimed only at causing frustration/anger. What's up with that?

I went back and read a few of his posts/replies. Seems he gets off on causing conflict, and making statements he's clearly uneducated about. So in essence, he's a *coughtrollcough*

Precisely. My eating habits are 1 or 2 meals a day and a few snacks, so I end up eating 5-6 times a day on average. And I'm 5'9" and weigh 140 lbs (or 176 cm & 63.5 kilos in metric), so it works. Especially as for most people who eat the standard 3 meals a day, their stomach stretches to a larger size than it's meant to, making them more likely to pig out. Your stomach is not meant to stretch to a size larger than 2 of your fists, which is something important to keep in mind when determining portion sizes. Anyway, here's some of my snacks:

-Apples
-Strawberries
-Yams(very quick and easy in the microwave)
-Almonds
-Chips & Salsa
-Guacamole
-Hummus
-Herbal Tea

I eat waaaay more hummus that I should, but it's too hard to resist. Other snacks include fruit (every afternoon at work I have either an apple or orange), veggies, energy bars (store-bought or homemade), almonds, walnuts, cashews, popcorn, trail mix, dried fruit, etc.
