How do you snack healthy?

I'd love to hear everybody's answer to my question.

Well for me, I snack healthy by sticking to fruits like apples or any fiber-rich biscuits. I also make it a point to eat small meals every six hours. Granola or multigrain bars are also good as snack.

...raw carrots dipped in homemade pesto (packed with garlic and fresh basil and made with walnuts instead of pinenuts which is cheaper and healthier...and olive oil is good in small portions)

...frozen blueberries in skim milk (lightly sweetened with a teensy bit of Splenda)

...1 piece of DARK Dove chocolate a day (lots of antioxidents they say)

...5 almonds a day

When I have healthy snacks, which, honestly, is only about 60% of the time, I most often choose:

Mixed Nuts, Celery, Radishes, Dried Fruit (dates, cranberries, cherries, pineapple), Sugar Free Frozen Yogurt.

When I'm not feeling healthy: Cheese (All Varieties), Flaky, Fruit Filled Turnovers, Peanut M&Ms (dark chocolate)! - Am I Bad!?

Fresh fruit, Savory Thins (sesame crackers), popcorn, Newman's Own unsalted pretzel rounds, unsalted nuts, walnuts and raisin mix, hummus with pretzels or whole wheat pita, lowfat/low sodium cottage cheese (I drain it to reduce the sodium), grape tomatoes, whole grain cereal...

I try to snack healthfully in moderation. My doctor still has a lot of student loans he has to pay off.

When I do snack healthfully, it's usually a Trader Joe's mix of nuts and dried fruits. Sometimes I mix in chocolate chips.
