Snack recommendation??

need some different variations of snacks for morning tea and afternoon.
tea. Ive been eating a slice of asparagus quiche for the the am snack and a slice of zucchini bread for the pm snack. I want to try something else but not a full on meal just a snack that satisfy. The pn gourmet nutrition book just has bars and supershakes. Is there any other good snack ideas. I lead a active lifestyle and work as a butcher 5days per week. I train mma and my workouts are intense! Need more than a small bar or shake just dont think thats enough. Any ideas? Cheers

Combine a few smaller snacks if you like or simply make a slightly bigger lunch/dinner each day and eat a bit of it as a snack 2-4 hrs later.

You can make an almost limitless variety of mini quiches in a muffin tray, mix yoghurt and berries, nuts, seeds, avocado, a little bit of cheese, protein powder may help improve a snack as well (I prefer to take it separately rather than mix it).

Another good resource is Georgies Fuel Up. She provides a list on her website Askgeorgie.com about which recipies fit AT/PW options and just about all could be adapted to be a snack (just cut the serving down right).

How do you think you could use any of those ideas?

I have solved this little dilemma in my life by feeding or not feeding. When I eat I eat protein and vegetables and when I don't eat, I don't eat at all. The merits of this system is that I eat enough not to need snacks. So if I were having tea with some mates, I would tell them to keep their biscuits; I am going to have some cold bangers and a carrot, or I would just have the tea and savor the stimulating tea-talk.
