What healthy snacks can I feed to my giving-up-smoking sweetie to keep his hands busy and his mind off cigarettes?
He's a little worried about putting on weight (I think he looks delightful, but then again I am biased), but having something to fidget with and eat seems to help him in the evenings when he gets the worst cravings.
As someone who I have seen eat a kilo of peanuts in one sitting, I think maybe low fat foods that he can eat a lot of would be better than advising moderation. I have read this question
and this question
, which both had some great suggestions, but I'm not really worried about protein or salt content. What I'm really looking for is something he can munch on when we're having a couple of drinks with friends at home, or watching the news of an evening.
My one thought so far has been raw veggies with dip - any suggestions for what veggies and what dip would be awesome. He loves salty and savoury things, and is a fan of garlic, chilli and strong cheeses (so basically anything) - and we're vegetarians. So, MeFites, what deliciousness do you recommend?
