Hi everyone, I joined SW 3 weeks ago, doing the extra easy plan.
Can I ask you to share your top 5 snacks that you rely on ? Mine are:

Apples
Bananas
0% fat free Activia vanilla yogurts
Eggs
Beans

I reach for these when hungry and in a hurry. I think I depend on them too much though ... I'm afraid of getting fed of of them so I am looking for other ideas. Can you share your favourites with me ?

I buy melons and cut them up into chunks, then put them into small pots in the fridge. These I find easy to snack on when hungry. I sometimes add a few grapes or strawberries (especially when in season) for a bit of variety.
The best flavour melon I think is the Piel de Sapo, which although a little bit more expensive is bigger & therefore good value.

Yes, melon is good and a Super food too.

Anyone else ?

I tend to make a fruit salad up and keep it in the fridge. It usually has strawberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries and melon.

I love mullerlight yoghurts with strawberries. I also save my healthy extras to have as snacks eg the hi fi bars.
courgettes sliced with a potato peeler and fried in fry light garlic are also a great superfree

Great thread smile I love carrot sticks in houmous and plenty of grapes and apples. I also really enjoy my peanut butter and banana on toast in the morning.

Melon
Satsumas
Eggs
Grapes
Chicken

I ate 3 eggs today...possibly a bit excessive! I love hard boiled eggs! I don't like eating them during the week though as my colleagues complain that they stink the office out!

We made the SW hummus & tzatziki tonight & had it with chunks of carrot, celery, cucumber & baby peppers. It was gorgeous. I had a weightwatchers wholemeal pitta as my heathy B.

Are crabsticks free?

ZingOfSeven Sun 09-Nov-14 18:30:55

homemade fat free soup for lunch.
cook in batches and freeze.
my top filling healthy comfort food, IMO it's the best way to reduce hunger and the need to snack.

it is good as a snack too

(last time I dieted I ate various soups every day. I lost 2 stones in 3 months)

I make hummus and also like pease pudding spread on celery for a savoury snack. Grapes rolled in sugar free jelly crystals and frozen are lovely or mix a white chocolate options in quark (about 3 suns for whole pot) and dip apple wedges in - feel hungry now!

Crab sticks are free on extra easy and red
I like tinned mackerel in tomato sauce (may have to check as some brands of these have syns)

Mussels
