    Hi Everyone, last week I found myself stranded, having missed a meal and thanked the Lord that I had a small bag of macademia nuts and a Babybel Light tucked in my handbag. What do the rest of you depend upon when away from home and unsure of the next meal? Bananas are an obvious, a low fat and low sugar cereal bar is another but can we compile a list to help newbies and oldies? They can be shop-bought or made from home ideas. This will also help with my next Thinner Times column, possibly on lunchbox ideas… Carol x


    What a fab idea Carol 🙂 As a newbie I would definitely appreciate this list and, hopefully, as I get further out I will be able to contribute to the list as well … Thank you for starting this off.


    Cereal bars, Nuts & Raisins, Rich tea biscuit, Mini babybel, sometimes a protein drink in a carton


    Great idea Carol. I keep a few crackers in a tiny tupperware pot and a small jar of pate or paste in the car and at work. Again, the babybel lights are a standard fall back for me. Also tend to keep a bag of wotsits in the car too!!!! :nono: I know I shouldn’t, but they are my one weakness, and at least they are baked now! 😉

    Hi Carol, I use low fat houmous and bread sticks, baby tomatoes and chopped cucumber. I love marmite flavour rice cakes and these come in individual bags like crisps too. I usually have a bag of mixed seeds on the go as well (pumpkin,sunflower and pine nuts). I would love more ideas for packed lunches, especially during the colder months as soup is a bit boring every day.
    It was great to meet you last Saturday


    I’m still trying to phathom out LUNCHBOX STAPLES…. I’ve googled it but nothing comes up???

    On a serious note, it is importnat to have something as a stand by….
    I love my fruity cerial bars ( a tad too much )
    Unfortunatley at the tea party I took the other car (my car that the wife seems to have comendeared)
    So for emergecies I’ll add some to the glove box, just in case.

    Good thinking Carol….

    Tut Tut……. Hee Hee


    Brilliant idea – well done Carol.

    I am dairy and nut free so cheese and nuts are going to be a problem for me. So any other ideas would be appreciated.
