So I spent much of last night grumbling to myself about wanting snacks - I badly wanted popcorn, crisps, chocolate... so I made myself fat free natural yoghurt, blended with a load of frozen berries, which was really nice, and quite low in calories, and then because I still needed to snack I had a couple of low fat crackers with lightest cream cheese. OK, so still about 200 cals in all - but it could be worse, it could have been 1000 cals of popcorn! So I'm not going to beat myself up about it, sometimes I need to snack, it's not ideal, but I can't cut that off completely, try as I might.
Anyway, Lidl currently has popcorn machines for sale - they cook by hot air not with oil - so the popcorn, although still carby, will be much much lower in fat - like... trace amounts I think? :) So that's something, hopefully I can do a small bowl for myself whenever I get a craving, and it'll be so much healthier than bagged popcorn or the stuff I make at home in two tablespoons of olive oil.
Any support massively appreciated at this time, really finding this all a struggle. I need snacks too badly, and fruit etc doesn't cut it - salt is what I need, and I really fail to find crunchy, salty, healthy treats...
