<span style="font-size:large;">I never know what to make and have on hand for snacks. I have been reading over the meal planning threads and have been getting ideas, but my DH who does the shopping wants a list. So I was wondering what are some items I can give him?</span>

Fruits and Veggies<br>
We love hemp granola and yogurt for breakfast or a snack and sometimes a treat cause its nice and sweet.<br>
nut butters on fruit or veggies<br>
Homemade fries using sweet or white potatoes<br>
any nuts, dried fruits

Before I answer, we wish that we were whole foods people, we strive towards that, but we don't always make it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Add to that, my dh's labwork in December showed pre-diabetes, so he's making a concentrated effort to avoid simple sugars and carbs. That said, for snacks, I buy: (all of these aren't all the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br>
cheese and whole wheat crackers<br>
cheese and apples<br>
veggies (celery and carrots almost every week, then radishes, turnips, snow peas, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, whatever looks good to eat as veggie sticks with or without a dip)<br>
a sour cream based dip for veggies (i just usually wing it from the pantry)<br>
fruits<br>
waldorf salad<br>
hummus (I make it; it's easy) and either veggie dippers or pita<br>
pimento cheese (make this, too) and celery and/or saltines<br>
pickles<br>
refried bean dip--beans, salsa, some cheese, heated<br>
salsa<br>
a black bean and corn salad I make--we eat it as a side dish first, then the leftovers as a salsa/dip<br>
peanut butter for crackers or celery or carrots<br>
my childhood treat--saltines with horseradish and a tiny bit of ketchup (kind of like deconstructed cocktail sauce)<br>
pudding<br>
jello (see--really not 100% whole foods LOL)<br>
graham crackers<br>
animal crackers<br>
yogurt (we buy big things of plain, then add fruit or jam or honey)<br>
cinnamon toast (toast with sugar and cinnamon--really easy)<br><br>
Before the diabetes scare, we also had a half gallon of ice cream in the freezer.
