Need to keep GOOD snacks stocked!!

We have been so busy running around this summer that we go through cycles of not having good snacks in the house. I like to have carrots and the hubby likes cucumber and radishes, they all seem to give us that crunch and the "hand to mouth" addiction thing that we both struggle with.

The thing is, with the summer, sometimes we don't get to the market as often for the fresh stuff and all we have left in the cupboards is chips!! We probably shouldn't even have those in the pantry, but because they last forever, unless they're opened...we always seem to have them.

If we have good snacks like veggies or fruits then we're all right...but if not...the chips shall be eaten!!! Please tell me it's not just me that has this problem!!

I always try to keep a couple extra cans of chick peas in the cabinet so I can whip up a quick batch of hummus in the food processor.

I know what you mean about not getting to the market often enough. I need to get some fresh vegetables too. I wish they lasted longer before starting to go bad.

I agree that chick peas are a good option. We always have a few cans in.
Nuts are another good option that I use as snacks most days

I think people are tired of shopping. I know I am! I can't wait until all you have to do is type in what you want, and like Star Trek, the replicator makes it appear! There would be so much more time for fun stuff...like going to the beach!
