    Michael Joseph at Nutrition Advance Site has been busy ...
    He has compiled a post called '99 Healthy Snacks For All Situations'

    He says:
    "Nutritious meals are always better than snacking.
    However, sometimes we feel the urge to eat food away from meal times. In this situation, we often make the wrong choice and opt for highly-processed food products.
    Fortunately, there are dozens of healthy food options.
    This article takes a look at 99 healthy snacks across nine different categories, so there is something for everyone.
    Use the menu below to see snacks for specific situations (like for school children or office workers), or just keep reading to see them all."

    Lots to read and see here

    Looking for a tasty change ... why not try some baked pepperoni. It makes spicy, crisp shells for sautéed veggies topped with tomato sauce and melted mozzarella. Read on for the recipe ...

    Ingredients:
    Serves 6
    4.5g carb per serving

    12 deli sliced sandwich-size pepperoni (about 3 inches across)
    1/4 cup minced green peppers
    3/4 cup minced yellow onion, divided into three portions
    1/4 cup minced mushrooms
    1/4 cup minced broccoli
    1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    3/4 cup tomato sauce
    1 cup grated whole milk mozzarella
    3 tbsp. minced fresh basil

    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. / 200°C. / Gas Mark 6
    2. To prepare pepperoni cups, cut two one-inch slits on opposite sides of each slice of pepperoni, and push slices into a mini muffin tin. Bake for 2 minutes, until edges are crisp.
    3. Remove from oven and let cool. Place pepperoni cups on absorbent paper. Wipe extra oil from muffin tins.
    4. Sauté onions and pepper until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan, and sauté onions and mushrooms, until soft. Remove from pan, and sauté onions and broccoli.
    5. Return cups to muffin tins, and fill four with onion and peppers. Fill four with mushroom mixture, and four with broccoli mixture. Cover each with 1 tsp of tomato sauce. Divide cheese among the cups.
    6. Bake for 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with fresh basil, and serve immediately.

    If you are having a party or family get-together ... just double the ingredients!

    I had a pretty good snack last night - lightly fried some slices of halloumi in olive oil and ate them with a thickly buttered oatcake. Took less time to cook than to eat.

    I enjoyed it so much I might have some more tonight.

    In the Co-Op I was poking through the Halloumi making sure I didn't get a low fat one by mistake.

    There was a dear little old lady next to me, doing the same with the mozzarella. She said she was going to grate it over a piece of haddock, something I hadn't previously thought of.

    Mother always poached haddock in milk, which I think came from her mother, them melted butter over the top. I do it in water, slather it in butter, and usually have it with toasted almonds and spinach. Maybe I'll try some with cheese next week.

    Interesting to read about the lady and grated mozzarella. Reading around the blogs and internet (as I do!) more and more folks are grating/shredding mozzarella over foods such as fish - tasty!

    My mum always poached in milk and it's so quick and easy.
    Looking back at memories of both my mum and Gran cooking often brings a smile to my face.

    Daughter-in-law loves cooking whole fresh foods and the grandchildren often watch and help her (supervised for safety of course).

    Going back to low carb snacks our quick favourite at the moment is manchego cheese wrapped in ham although it works well with gouda too!
    Of course manchego and asparagus and toasted almonds is also yummy!

    Parmesan Cheese Crisps/Chips : Low Carb Snack


    These Parmesan Cheese Chips/Crisps are easy to prepare …
    All you need is Parmesan cheese and your favourite seeds and you're good to go! Has low-carb snacking ever been cheesier, crispier or crunchier!?

    Ingredients
    (Two Servings, about 15 Crisps)
    2⁄3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
    2⁄3 oz. (20g) chia seeds
    2⁄3 oz. (20g) flaxseed
    2⁄3 oz. (20g) pumpkin seeds

    … Feel free to use any seed you like; try sesame, hemp and others.

    Instructions are here

    Parmesan Cheese ..."Originates from the Parma region of Italy, this is one of the world’s most popular cheeses, stamped with the official Parmigiano Reggiano mark as a guarantee of origin. Fragrant and tangy, it has a hard, grainy texture and a buttery yellow colour. Once tasted, it's hard to resist the delicious piquant taste and crumbly texture of parmesan. There are countless ways to savour the flavour.

    Parmesan, or Parmigiano-Reggiano to give it its proper name, is one of those magical flavour-enhancing ingredients. A few curls of finely shaved parmesan, for example, make a pear and fennel salad taste irresistible, just as a chunk of parmesan rind transforms a slow-simmered minestrone into a gorgeous savoury meal.

    The secret of parmesan's intense flavour lies in the fact that it's made with fragrant unpasteurised milk and that the cheese is carefully matured over a long period. The cheeses are matured for between 18 and 48 months, depending on the kind of cheese and the producer. The result is a hard, honey-coloured cheese with a crumbly, almost crystalline texture."

    I don't snack much, but like the occasional treat. I like fast simple easy to do.

    So mostly I make one with a mix of cream cheese, stevia, chopped walnuts or coconut flakes, vanilla or chocolate. Eat some with a spoon mostly as dessert.

    I also prepare in microwave a cake with coconut flour, stevia, eggs, butter, baking powder and some almonds. It take 6 minutes in microwave.

    I also like a mix of cheese, olives or sour pickle and some pork rinds.

    Back in the day I used to sprinkle ground parmesan over my spag bol. Then I escalated to cheddar which I also baked on top of my lassagnes. More recently I add halloumi to my bolognese sauce, I forgot to do it last time so I'll try to remember tomorrow.

    Sometimes for a snack we will enjoy some cheese and olives.
    Like this French brie and Italian sun dried tomatoes, with olives, in olive oil


    The ones in the picture are Green Spanish manzanilla olives

    … But did you know that Castelvetrano Olives, may be the World’s Tastiest Olive?
