Crunchy Snack Ideas

Phase 1

Raw veggies, including celery, green or red peppers, cauliflower and broccoli florets, served with hummus or a South Beach DietŪ-approved dressing

Dill pickles (seek out the no-sugar-added variety and limit your consumption if you're watching sodium intake)
Edamame (boiled soy beans, sold by the bag in the frozen foods section of most supermarkets)
Sunflower seeds (count these toward your daily nut/seed allowance)
Soy nuts

In addition to the above, you may also enjoy the following snacks in
Phases 2 and 3:

Carrot sticks

Toasted whole-wheat pita bread, sliced into triangles, with hummus
Toasted whole-wheat tortillas or wraps, sliced into triangles, served with salsa or a bean-based dip
