    healthy ready made snacks, is there such a thing? 16th May 17 at 3:02 PM
    I am looking for suggestions for as healthy as possible, ready made, just grab from the cupboard snacks. Like you can crisps and biscuits. I am not sure there is such a thing

    Fruit would be ideal but I don't like it

    I would prefer something you can buy but I am happy to make my own as long as it will last/keep a week, I don't want to be making/preparing something every day.

    Many thanks

    Soup? Make a batch and just warm some through when you get home.

    The soup idea is a good one. There are quite a few tinned ones which are 1,2 or 3 a day on the veggies.

    Drink a glass of water or 2... sometimes i have a teaspoon of peanut butter by itself or with rivita high fiber cracker.
    Celery a good one takes ages to eat, bit bland tho.

    Dried fruit and nuts? Dried fruit has quite a lot of sugar (albeit natural sugar) so you have to be careful with's so easy to eat the whole bag but nuts are great for satisfying snack cravings!

    Try buying your fruit and veg from a greengrocer or local farm shop -- somewhere where the buyer really cares. The quality is much better than in supermarkets.
