    Default Snacks

    So I'm trying to come up with a slightly healthier meal plan than my current 'Whatever's closest' plan.

    The only thing I can't quite figure out is some snacks. I always feel heaps better after I have food high in protein - but I eat throughout the day and none of my snacks tend to have a lot of protein.

    The catch is - I'm lactose intolerant and allergic to nuts which rules out a lot. Majority of my food has to be quite portable because I'm at work most days for most of the day.

    Any ideas?

    I found new tuna cans in woolies that have herbs and mayo mixed in already. i love them. They dont have the really bad fish smell and i use carrot and celery sticks to eat them.

    Boiled eggs - they last about a week so every 5 days I boil a dozen eggs for the 3 of us to snack on or hummus ( chick peas are high in protein) with some carrot sticks?

    Hummus is great and so easy to make your own.
    When I was working I would put a (very) generous amount in the bottom of a jar then put veggie sticks in such as cucumber, celery, carrot, capsicum, snow peas then screw the lid on. No spillage in my bag and minimum washing up.

    These ideas are great being preggers and also diagnosed with a reading of gestational diabetes not a bad level but really having to plan meals and finding good protein ideas would be cottage cheese, baked beans, chickpea salads, eggs def a godsend, also finding woolies are doing a lovely cheaper pack of chicken skin off and bone in 6 pieces for $5 we bake on a bed of pumpkin, leek, onion and place sliced mushroom and cherry tomato on top of chicken. Ham salad crackers not preg but def a good idea for work etc. Be careful where the woolies mini tins of tuna are sourced from I wouldn't touch them if they are from thailand. Vegetarian sausages are fab too.
