What should I eat when I want crisps?

Or savoury snacks?

I'm cutting down on sugar, sweets and biscuits and snacks in general and find I'm craving less and less sugar.
However I sometimes find myself craving something savoury especially cheese and onion crisps and I'm having to really struggle when we do have some in to not eat them.

What good savoury snacking options are out there when I'm craving something like crisps?

Snack a Jacks Smile
Also big snacks jack rice cakes with light Dairylea are surprisingly nice. I'm not sponsored by them by the way Grin

Otherwise, if you're really craving then, have a bag of crisps and don't worry.

Pickled onions.

Sliced apple and peanut butter (although I doubt my ratio of peanut butter to apple slice helps with weight loss).

I sometimes make up a little ramekin of sliced celery, peppers, onion and cheese.

If you can cope without the crunch then itโ€™s probably better to snack on protein: a hard boiled egg or some slices of chicken.

And remember to drink lots of water! Sometimes when you feel hungry youโ€™re actually thirsty and a big glass of water and waiting ten minutes helps loads.

Dry bran flakes! I find them addictive though so be warned.

She's cutting down on sugar so why suggest rice cakes (practically pure glucose from starch) and popcorn (even more sugar than rice cakes).

The seaweed is a great idea. Salty cheese like parmigiano cubes with Parma ham or cucumber slices with cream cheese.

Carrot sticks and low fat hummus. Gherkins. Or just allow a small low cal bag.
