Clearly I am trying very hard not to stuff my face, however I do need something late afternoon to keep me going till supper.

Cheese toasty

What do you eat?

Afraid today it's been coffee cake blush! My DPs aunt is a baker and made me the most AMAZING coffee cake I've ever had and specially left out the walnuts as I'm allergic to them smile

Ice cream today, it's so hot!

A bowl of porridge for me. Very filling, nutritious and tasty smile

Digestive biscuits and milk this afternoon. Makes me feel like a kid again smile Cannot get enough milk!! If I'm feeling healthier, I go for a yogurt and one or two of those ryvita things with currants in. They're really tasty and they fill me up too.

Strawberry laces my OH kindly bought me 6 packets of. I guess he was sick of me saying "I need strawberry laces" constantly.. with chicken salad and a bottle of water.. I'd rather have a subway but hey ho

Coco pops & milk. Not particularly healthy but I fancied something sugary/chocolatey after work

I have been a good girl and had strawberries & 2 kiwi fruits today too so my diet's not all bad.

I used to live on coco pops at uni, when I could eat what I wanted and never gained weight!

Homemade flapjacks. Did a certain amount of testing before cooking blush. But they have seeds in them. Seeds are healthy, right?

donttellalfred Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:34

Oh my god I could murder a bowl of coco pops with really cold milk right now.

photographerlady Fri 05-Jul-13 18:40:55

Ice cream but removing the guilt with pears and nectarines

Babybump26 Fri 05-Jul-13 18:44:28

Orange Ice lolly which may have been followed by a couple foxes biscuits! blush

farmersdaughter Fri 05-Jul-13 19:40:44

Ohhh coco pops! Might pop to Tesco right now on the pre-tense of getting milk and butter grin

Lemon curd and homemade flat jacks! Yum yum yum. Need to up my game, clearly cheese on toast is looking rather Unappealing next to coco pops!

MortifiedAdams Fri 05-Jul-13 19:43:44

today I had a pain au chocolat. DD likes them too (19mo), and calls them cake.

My last pg I would have a 3pm cocacola and a snickers. IT was so so regular often other people would get it from the vending machine for me in advance, so sweet!

Crisps, crisps and more crisps. Have been craving salty snacks since week 7. Just goes to show you don't crave what the body actually needs - just looking at veggies makes me want to hurl right now....

SeriousStuff Sat 06-Jul-13 00:15:54

Ranges from buttered toast, chocolate, grapes, strawberries, yoghurt, Ovaltine...

Futterby Sat 06-Jul-13 00:46:31

Desperate for a big bowl of carrots with houmous.

What is a lemon curd yogurt?! And where can I get some?!
