    My backup plan just in case time is limited and I am starving is tinned yellow fish tuna or herring. Some weeks I must admit I will eat this three to four times over a seven day period. What is your back-up plan for a quick go to meal or snack? Just looking for some ideas to keep life a bit more interesting.

    Thanks

    A quick meal? Scramble 2 x eggs in the microwave, whilst a slice of HiLo bread toasts in the toaster straight from the freezer. Takes around three minutes

    And if I’m hungry and don’t want to cook I’ve been known to eat just a variety of cheeses for a meal.

    I always freeze my leftover meat from meals sonic I'm in a hurry or feeling lazy I just reheat and eat.

    I usually have a couple of hard boiled eggs in the fridge, I can eat them alone or add some mayo/salad cream for a sandwich.
    I also keep some tinned salmon in cupboard, again to make a sandwich with mayo.
    Avocados and cooked chicken drumsticks are good too.

    I love pork scratching's - just cannot always purchase them but is about the only thing I really enjoy. I snack on nuts whilst at work. When in need of something for a dessert - a cream filled eclair - I peel off the paste/chocolate and eat it - on occasions I use some sugar free chocolate melted and spoon on top then chill in fridge. I needed a 'sweet' treat that did not pack too high a punch.

    Places, like Amazon will often be able to deliver in bulk, for example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pub-Origin...8467055&sr=8-2&keywords=pork+scratchings+bulk

    I'm not suggesting that particular brand, just showing an example of how you might be able to keep a stock in.

    I am uncertain how carborific olives are. The jars of green olives in brine that I buy say 0g carb per 100g, but many carb counting sites give them many more carbs than that. I believe 0 per 100 could mean 0.9, but that is still pretty low. What do other olive eaters think?

    I prefer pitted black olives, usually with a glass or two of wine. The carb content is low, and counterbalanced by the dietary fibre.
