Good choice for a new thread! There is a particular type of sweet and sour apple that is only available in October, so that is my go to snack of the moment. Too soon they will be no more until next year. Earlier in the month it was overripe Japanese persimmons - words fail to describe what a sin that fruit is in an overripe state. Back in normal land, my go to snack is walnuts. They seem to be able to fill those holes in my nutrition tracker and they are satisfying - even just a few. I wish I could get raw almonds. Have to keep trying to source them.
The future starts now.

I love those thin rice or corn cakes (can't stant the thicker ones, and avoid the artificially flavoured ones too), with crunchy peanut butter - the ultimate snack, and it helps boost my fat intake a little too. I will often have four for lunch, followed by an apple, and as unlikely as it may sound, that keeps me satisfied till dinnertime.
I find that a piece of fruit chopped up into some low fat yoghurt gives me the same level of enjoyment as a piece of cheesecake - specially if I chop up a red apple, skin included, mix that through some low fat Greek yoghurt, along with plenty of cinnamon and possibly a drizzle of honey - if I crave sweet and creamy.
Air popped corn is great to nibble on while watching a movie or TV late at night - relieves that need to snack I often have during those times. If I'm going to watch a movie with friends I always take a bag of popped corn, one with apple slices (again unpeeled) and some sultanas. Added bonus is that these things are way cheaper and completely guilt free, so long as you remember to include them in your menu plan.
I deserve to be healthy and happy, and no one can do that for me but myself!
