DH and I are pretty committed to eating healthy but I think one thing we really need are healthy snacks. Otherwise if we suddenly get hungry, it's way too easy to fill up a bowl of cereal or toast a bagel.

Obviously there's, uh, carrot sticks. And whole fruit. But what else? I am willing to bake/prepare things ahead of time that could just be grabbed in a moment of hunger. Hopefully some ideas will have a bit of fat in them to help satisfy cravings.

Hard boiled eggs.
Tinned fish (sardines and ketchup on toast as a snack/meal is pretty healthy).
Dips and raw veggies.
Cold roasted meats.
Creme fraiche/quark/yogurt cheese mixed with horseraddish and rolled in smoked salmon slices.
Glass of milk.
Chocolate chickpea cakes.
Cold small crustless quiches (cook in muffin tins).
Roasted chickpeas.

HTH!

Yep. They are so easy! Just put a tin of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) into the food processor with 3 eggs, 3/4 cup of the sweetner of your choice (I use coconut sap, unrefined sugar and have also used honey but can't remember how much I used), 1 tsp of baking powder, 4 tbsp cocoa powder and 4 tbsp coconut oil. Blend it until it is smooth and bake it at about 350oF until a skewer comes out clean. It works well both as a big cake and as small cakes in muffin tins or cake cases. You can leave out the coconut oil but I think it is dry without it.
