I am pretty sure I could go on forever on this thread!
I have had so many periods of only being able to eat certain things, so actually, what I can snack on has often varied a lot.
Rice crispy squares, rice pudding pots, crisps, sweets, chocolate, biscuits, bananas, smooth peanut butter, marshmallows, cheese dippers, boiled eggs, noodles are all things I have snacked on when I have had to avoid fibre. Certain cereals too - obviously not crunchy nut lol.
When I didn't need to have a low fibre diet (like now), I try to snack on fruit and veg a fair bit. I actually just graze throughout the day most days anyway, and then have a larger evening meal. So, things I can just take out of the cupboard/fridge are always a favourite of mine so it doesn't disrupt my walk day! So, I still munch on all of the above, but break it up with more fruit and veg like radishes, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks etc. I have to be mindful of how much fruit/veg I eat in one go, and what I eat it with. I have an ileostomy and it like starchy foods/carbs at the same time!
