In Waterloo Station there is this little shop that sells nuts and dried fruit and “healthy” snack by the scoop. It is the mecca for anyone peckish on their way home – there is always a queue. I am a big fan and a frequent visitor. Trouble is…they sell all the stuff I like by the SCOOP full. I am talking wasabi peas, dark chocolate brazils, those funny coated banana chips, amazingly moreish salt and pepper cashews, dried mango….it is pretty hard to keep the scoops down to a minimum. In these credit crunch times I try to limit myself to the average person’s two serving portion – so I have a stash in my bag for next time I am peckish and have perilously low blood sugar. This was my reasoning this week when I loaded up my paper bag with a smokey nut medley with a few sneaky wasabi peas. The entire bag lasted 2 stops. I guzzled the lot. I even hid the paper bag in my handbag to make it harder for myself – so I would have to rustle the paper and draw attention to my gluttony. All in vain.

I’m not sure why I am surprised this happens every time.

I carry rice cakes around with me for low blood sugar but by the time I need to have them, they smell and taste of shopping bag and I often get home worse than before… I wish there was a shop like this one near us. I’d dive straight into it!
