I think popcorn might be OK in some forms but there's loads of recipes for low carb snacks. Dark chocolate (above 80% cocoa) is OK. I can recommend joining the Low Carb programme (if you can get it for £20 or so for a year instead of the usual £70). I've made a Twix-type snack using ground almonds, cream and dark chocolate from there, which is pretty good. Also Diabetes.co.uk has loads of recipes.

cheers PB - am scouring the diabetes.co.uk website as we speak.

A Twix-type snack sounds intriguing. We attempted a chocolate avocado pudding using 80% dark chocolate yesterday without much success!

My dad was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes & whilst he maintains a relatively active lifestyle his weakness is white rice.

We've switched it to wholegrain brown rice & even brown Basmati rice but he kicks up an almighty fuss.

Biscuits have been removed as snacks but lightly salted popcorn is still on the menu - unsure if the popcorn is a concern & if others can suggest some healthier & tastier alternatives?
I read popcorn is fine yesterday on the site I was on.
My mission this weekend is to suss out what fantasy Ireland said earlier. Little but often.
One thing I've realised is what an almighty lazy bastard I am where day time snacks and meals are concerned. Evening not so much as I like cooking.

Unrelated to diabetes but the other half has been attempting this in order to get fit by adopting alarms throughout the day which seems to trigger a routine she’s getting accustomed to. Think the prep work is needed & planned out otherwise you fall into the trap of looking in the cupboard & over eating.

A by-product of all of this are these bloody alarms are doing my nut in when we’re both working from home!
