    Hello,

    Please can i have some ideas of a green day snack?

    I've had cous cous for my lunch and 1 HEX B. I normally do red days and would pick at chicken but i dont really know what to pick at on a green day!! I have no microwave at work so it will have to be a 'ready food' but i dont want fruit!

    Thanks in advance

    xx

    mugshots, fruit packs, not sure what else to suggest - babybels if you have not used your HEA? i think 3 Babybel lights are one HEA!

    Low fat supernoodles are free too, or any supernoodles without the sauce and powder stuff.

    mug shots are wee packets of like pasta, that you just put into a cup and pour bowling water over for it to cook, you get them in various flavours. xx

    You can get Low fat suppernoodles to go, where they are just in a pot and you add boiling water. I made the mistake of getting teh non low fat ones last week - was annoyed as I had syns by eating something I don't really like :mad:

    Are you happy to have something cold? I often buy tubs of VLF cottage cheese and eat that along with some cherry tomatoes. Or you could have some 0% fat Greek yoghurt with grapes.

    As you have 1 b choice and some A's to use, how about Ryvita and babybels?

    This is just what I do but I always try to snack on fruit, veg or yoghurt, no matter what days I'm doing.

    Personally I think if you need to snack on supernoodles or mug shots then you should be having more for your meals so you don't get so hungry inbetween. I know you don't want fruit but how about carrot sticks dunked into cottage cheese? Or rather than eat a banana or apple, how about a mixed fruit salad with some yoghurt?

    A boiled egg helps stave off the hunger or make some tortilla strips instead. You could take some cold pasta or rice salad into work. I sometimes save a hex B and then weigh out 28gms of crunchy oatbakes to nibble on.

    Yeah it is - I always keep some at work, you add 1/2 a pint of boiling water & microwave for about 6 mins until most of the water has been absorbed, mug shots are good too but be careful you only buy the syn free variety, Sweet & Sour & tomato & herb pasta are free, not sure what other flavours, Sainsbury's do a tinned vegetable chilli which is also free on a green day & is really tasty, the Quorn cocktail sausages from the chilled section are free too & they are good to pick at all day

    Make a SW quiche! Kept in the fridge, I find it keeps well. It's lovely cold. No fussing on the morning, just cut a slice and I'm away lol. I always carry fruit about me too. Other days I like mugshots, or sometimes I cook some pasta and mix in peppers and onions, some passata and herbs. Yum yum.
    Ooh another idea - Alpen Light cereal bars, 2 count as a HEb or they're 3 syns each. The choc and fudge one is lovely with a cuppa!
