Friday Five…favourite snacks

Standard

Food again,surprise surprise! Here are my five favourite snacks,some are low-fat some aren’t but all are my yummy go to nibbles.

1. Popcorn,salty or sweet?, I love both,air popped corn is low-fat and you can get some powdered flavours that have no or very little fat,I pop the corn and sometimes sprinkle a little icing sugar on for a sweet treat,for a savoury kick sprinkle freshly popped warm corn with a little smoked paprika or sour cream and chive flavour powder (the stuff you can put onto wedges or meat rubs etc) or barbecue flavour powder.Popping corn is so cheap and I am astonished how much cinemas charge for it ! I buy a bag of corn for around 89p and get bucket loads.

2. Olives, I love a glass of red wine and love to have a little bowl of stuffed olives to go with it,yummy and good for you.

3. Apple and peanut butter, I slice apples and spread with one of my favourite foods, peanut butter.When I need my peanut butter fix this does the trick.

4. Chocolate covered pretzels, I love salty and sweet together so I buy a bag of salted pretzels and dip them into chocolate,they can be sprinkled with anything that takes your fancy. These are yummy and bagged up they make great little gifts.
