I often pour out 50 grams of salted cashews for a snack.

I was at Costco with CWS last year and picked up a jar of cashews. CWS, "What do you use those for?" Me, "I eat them."

Has anyone else tried these yet?

Just bought a box when I shopped on Saturday and tried one. Such self control, as they are pretty tasty! They could become a problem if I don't watch myself, but they aren't cheap (20 pieces in the box for $2.50) so they'll remain an occasional treat. Besides, I wanted to save some calories for my nightly whine wine.

CG , we often only eat two meals a day as well (weekends and when on vacation) we fill the gap between breakfast and dinner with cheese and crackers or veggies and dip or fruit, sometimes sourdough bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. BTW, often the "two meal a day" days are usually because we started with a late breakie or we are busy (shopping, yard work etc)

Three snacks

1. I sometimes snack on Wheat Thins Hint of Salt.

2. A dozen green grapes is another snack of mine.

3. I do enjoy Laura Scudder's Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Unsalted and Bonne Maman raspberry preserves on Triscuit Hint of Salt.

I had just finished a jar of that good ol' Smuckers natural peanut butter (which I mostly dip celery sticks into) and was at the grocery to get another, when I spied a jar of almond butter and decided to try it. Nah - too sweet. It's hands-down Smuckers for me. Now what will I do with the almond butter?

Pour the oil off. Bea, you're a genius! That almond butter was a bear to stir up completely, too.

Sounds good kades!

I like a little something sweetish with my last cup of coffee sometimes. Had just two (can't believe my self-control!)) of those Stacey's banana bread chips I mentioned earlier. Perfect! My next snack had better be more wholesome than fun though...
