M&S Healthy(ish) Snacks

I’m not a food expert, a dietician, I have no qualifications or scientific knowledge on what is and isn’t healthy. All I know is, these snacks are probably better for you than eating a family size bar of Dairy Milk and they’re vegetarian and they’re delicious! 

I constantly stand in shops, just hoping a healthy snack is going to jump into my hands. I have tried so many things, including seaweed crisps and kale crisps (bleugh). I used to buy some mini packs of meat - low carb, high protein - but then I turned veggie.

I know nuts are supposed to be a good choice, but I just don’t like them. I’m really jealous of people who keep little tupperware boxes of nuts in the bag to nibble on when they’re out and about. I WANT SOMETHING TRANSPORTABLE, I AM ALWAYS HUNGRY!

So obviously I was a little excited when I stumbled upon these in Marks and Spencers. Alas, healthy snacks that don’t taste like cardboard and are vegetarian!

Crispy Coated Chickpeas With Moroccan Style Spices

I already have a serious hummus addiction, that is supported by a mildly severe falafel addiction. So naturally roasting chickpeas was the next step. 

Lightly Salted Habas Fritas 

These are roasted broad beans that are lightly salted. They’re pretty much as close to nuts as you can get without actually tasting like nuts. It’s beans, so they’re healthy, right?

Jalapeno Giant Corn

Big old balls of spicy corn. Taste sort of like pop corn on the first bite, then the jalapeno flavouring kicks in to give it a more savoury taste

All of these are incredibly moreish, it takes a little willpower not to polish off a bag in one sitting. I’ve been buying them for a snack at work, either to nibble on throughout the day or as part of my lunch. One bag lasts Monday to Friday so at £1/£2 a pop they’re an bargain!

What healthy snack food do you eat?
