Is there a healthy crisp replacement snack out there?

#1
As I'm starting to middle age spread does anyone know of a snack that could replace crisps which doesn't taste like crap or vegitation! and is effort free

I phys regularily and don't do chocolate or puddings or biscuits however i must confess to eating crisps so I'm to try going to go cold turkey on them to try and stop the rot.

There must be something out there but carrot sticks and rice bread etc don't flick my switch

cheers

No chance "Headgear" you are destined to become a fat t**t like me.Cut down on the bread does help: Have a half a slice instead of a full slice. Then you can make up the difference in Crisps :)
Just accept the fact that there is no substitute for Crisps. Who needs fancy cuisine when there is Smiths, Walkers and Golden Wonder about?

Cake but cut it in half so you can have twice as much.

looked for baked products rather than fried

new technology is out there to mean frying isnt necessary. i think Walkers do something - its of course slightly poncey with spicy flavours but probably can get / will do plain stuff too.

have you tried running by the way?
Yes!!! all the time but unfortunately the older you get the more you spread!!!!! and the more effort it takes to a. actually do phys and b. motivate yourself

I'm just trying to find an alternative that I won't feel guilty about eating and won't make me fatter- I'll check out those salt and vinegar rice cakes in TESCO

Get a Dog. When the Dog starts looking fat, then you know that you're not getting enough exersize.

Crisps are indeed king. You don't get other food with the savoury taste and crunch. Fruit is boring, nuts/cereal are boring and taste far too healthy.

Skips are amazing. Don't eat Wotsits though, they're about as fatty as you can get. They even hold a flame. I think crisps are the wrong thing to be avoiding - 100 calories a day is not the issue. Do you eat a lot of potato/red meat? Pastry?

The walkers Baked crisps are alright. Though I swear the only reason each bag has less calories is because you only get about 5 fecking crisps in there.

Th Eat Natural range is pretty scrummy too. Their breakfast cereal is gorrrrrgeous, and their fruit and nuts bars are worth orgasming for!

But they're not entirely crisp-like, so I'd opt for Bigbird's suggestion of Walkers French Fries - which are uber delicious and under 100 cals!
