What are some good quick and easy snacks for diabetics? A friend keeps getting cookbooks with several ingredients and commented today, "I wish I just had a list of quick and easy one ingredient no work snacks!" Anybody got some good ideas for this list?

My husband's favorite snacks right now are green apples and sugar-free pudding cups. They are both quick and simple and fit nicely in his lunch box. He also likes Wheat Thins.

thank you for this great list along with the amount for one snack. I am diabetic and could use some new ideas to spice it up.
