24 Delicious Snacks for When You're Almost Out of SmartPoints

So you're never left hungry or bored.

Snacking throughout the day can help you fend off hunger between meals—a good thing considering hanger can really put a damper on your day.

The good news: Whether you’ve used the bulk of your SmartPoints at breakfast—hello, creamy French toast casserole!–or you’re saving them for drinks and dessert at dinner, there are so many delicious WW snacks that will keep your belly full and taste buds happy between meals without interfering with your weight loss progress.

Of course you can always graze on ZeroPoint™ snack options like hard-boiled eggs (zero SmartPoints!), leftover grilled chicken breast (Z-E-R-O!) and non-fat yogurt (no points! None!). And then there are a bevy of ZeroPoint fruits like fresh apples, bananas, and berries, and veggies like baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and celery—all great foods to grab when you’re on the run. That said, it’s only human nature to grow bored with plain-old standbys. And there’s no reason to settle for lackluster snacks.

So: The next time a snack attack strikes between breakfast and lunch, or you find hunger creepin’ up on you hours before dinner, try one of the low-SmartPoint snack recipes below, which can fit into your day no matter how many (or few) points you’ve banked.
