Missus wants to cut down on her crisp intake, we probabaly eat too much at the weekends, when quaffing wine and watching the wire. 2x 150g bags of Kettle chips over fri/sat.

I like a cheeseboard but that isn't healthy either!

So what alternatives are there for nibbles, make our own crisps from spuds/carrots etc?

Shes a good cook so any ideas welcome :)

Olives - check. we only liked stoned olives, not the pitted shite so will see if i can get any in the shopping.

Popcorn, yes we make our own buttered stuff, might try a chilli type.

Pretzels are another possibility.

Yes wkd kitten, get some nice neg and hummus, a cheese platter without the badness.

Sean, crackers will make me want cheese!

I've been getting really into olives stuffed with garlic. Like a proper clove shoved riiiight in them! YUM!

That or with feta cheese. The beauty of them is you can feast on the taste of a single olive for an hour at a time!

Well, 5 minutes.

Make sweet potato/parsnip/.... something else crisps in the oven and season.

Yum yum yum. Not sure how much healthier they are because of the oil needed...but they must be slightly better. And taste super nice. Provided you don't burn them all to a blackened erm... crisp like I did the first few times I made them.

A box of Crunchy Nut Clusters is pretty nice in the evening. Make sure you put them in a bowl though as the rustling of the bag can be quite distracting if you're watching the T.V.

Just put out a saucer of milk to dip them in and you're good to go.

Another vote for Habas Fritas. You can make something similar by getting a load of broad beans, shelling them, covering in breadcrumbs/sugar/salt/chilli/lemon and roasting. Gorrrrrrgeous.

Ooh. Not thought about roasting these. How long/hot? Do they come out crispy then?

Apologies, I've misled you on more than one detail there.

Marks and Spencer. 'Edamame beans.. Lightly salted and baked soybeans.'

They're well nice. Almost the perfect snack with a wine and/or beer. Habas fritas lite.

No Habas Fritas for be found in tesco, I did get some flavoured soy beans, black bean crackers, chilli seed mix (which look dam tasty) Olives and some emergency walkers lights. I also got white anchovies to make boquerones (they were just loose in tesco deli, should I cover them in oil as I’m not eating them until Saturday?)
