When I want something a bit more interesting than protein, grains, and fruits and vegetables, I eat: low-fat, baked blue corn chips; small amounts of cheese; brownies that I make using bananas and carob instead of sugar and chocolate; popcorn; toasted whole-wheat pita pockets; peanut butter; raw almonds; frozen fruit (grapes, dark sweet cherries, oranges, bananas); dried, unsweetened apples or pears; or muesli that I make myself. I can eat these foods in moderation because they don't make me feel out of control.
How do you know whether you can have just a little bit of a treat food? If you can set a rule for yourself about it and stick to it, then it's a treat food you can moderate.
