Dh does not follow a healthful diet. He is constantly snacking but complains he is pudgy. Has any of you a idea for a healthful snack that is manly and not girly or old people food. Thanks a lot!

Bananas are pretty phallic. How more manly can you get? Seriously though have you tried telling him to get a grip? That's a really strange relationship to have with food.

Biltong or jerky

Very manly indeed

A Yorkie?

I have the opposite problem. I can't find a snack that is girly enough, and keep having to sprinkle glitter on pringles and stuff in order to render them suitable. I think the glitter is toxic, and I'm becoming quite unwell.

Pork scratchings?

Nuts?

I had to post this.

It's in French, but the yellow corner says, "not only for chicks". Because Litchi and Rose yogurts are for everyone!

Manly snacks?! Fuck me, I r heard it all now. There are no male/female foods so he can have a yogurt or a piece of fruit like the rest of us.

Piece of cheese and apple?

Snafu1988 Fri 21-Jul-17 18:35:45

Hope you all are having fun angry.

When I talked about manly food I ment hearty and spicey and food, such as chili con carne, chicken wings, crisps, lasagna.

He does not like an apple or a yoghurt. So I thought that maybe there was something which is healthy but less like "typical health food"... less like something that tastes like nothing, you know?

It would be very nice if you took my question serious ecause i think my husband cannot do this on his own and needs a little help there.

I like chilli, chicken wings, crisps and lasagne.

Didn't realise they required a penis to eat them.

And there was me using a knife and fork all this time. Tsk.

Lasagna is a snack?

WhiskyIrnBru Fri 21-Jul-17 19:40:58

Tortilla chips and homemade salsa or guacamole?

skyzumarubble Fri 21-Jul-17 19:52:20

Chilli and lasagne are a snack?!

dudsville Fri 21-Jul-17 19:53:12

Perhaps he could identify his own snack

Lunaballoon Fri 21-Jul-17 19:58:03

WTF is old people food?

AlternativeTentacle Fri 21-Jul-17 20:18:30

if chilli and lasagna are a snack then he is in deep shit!

AlternativeTentacle Fri 21-Jul-17 20:19:18
