Pork rinds. They are really good. I even use them as a breading for fried chicken. Nothing like chicken breaded with pork rinds, gives it a great bacon flavor and a good crunch...

Tonight's snack was 2 pieces of bacon, a thick slice of jalapeno brick cheese, sugar-free jello topped with whipped cream.

I always have a supply of cooked bacon on hand - when I cook bacon I cook two full frying pans at once - 16 slices. I usually have two slices at a time and put the other 14 slices in a tupperware container in the fridge. It only takes 12 seconds in my microwave to re-heat 2 slices anytime and because they're fried they taste awesome.

I use bacon for small snacks, salads, lettuce-wraps, whatever - it's always ready-made in my fridge.

I typically eat a handful of nuts (a blend of walnuts, pecans, almonds and macadamias <-- (you reading this, Moon?!). Occasionally I'll have some sugar-free Jello with whipped cream or a chunk of Spanish fuet. However, now Beefy has made me hungry and I'm heading to the fridge to cook me up some bacon. I'll eat a few slices with some real cheddar sliced on top of them. Bad Beefy!

I just made a Costco run. I have been taking a slice of deli turkey, putting a slice of Havarti on top, and rolling the whole thing around a wedge of avocado. Sometimes I smear some mayo in there too (just to hold the layers together, you understand... )

And Costco's smoked salmon with a little bit of cream cheese. That's good too -- lox and bagels without the bagels.

Salami slices smeared with cream cheese. I eat these in bed at night -- no crumbs!

Arenda, are pork rinds not DA BOMB????? I've been using them as breading for fried green tomatoes.

...and Moon has me hooked on macadamias.

@Beffy, try cooking bacon in the oven on 350 or 400, I use cookie sheets (one with the sides) and put cooling racks on it to elevate the bacon out of the grease. It comes out crispy with much more flavor than microwave and much flatter than a skillet. I can cook up 2lbs of bacon at once, just load in the oven and pull it out when its done. I switched to the uncured all natural no preservative stuff so I can be healthier (and broke) and the oven is the only way it cooks well. It shrivels up and burns on the ends in the microwave.

Don't ge me wrong - I don't "cook" it in the microwave, I only warm what I've already cooked and stored.

I've tried several methods of 'cooking' bacon in the microwave, and don't like anything I've tried.

I've done it in the oven before, and yes it can be great, but I find it takes longer ... I'm not lazy, I just spend so much time preparing meals that I try to be as efficient as possible and don't mind the difference in fried bacon...

And like you, I'm picky on bacon. I'm currently enjoying free-range pork bacon that's also not just naturally-cured but nitrate-free. Yes, it's crazy expensive. Yes it's worth it. Besides, I can pay for it by charging my adult kids (two in university) higher room/board. (Just kidding, I don't charge them room/board while they're in university, LOL, just when they're working.)

I like to make chocolate whipped cream. I know the coco powder has about 4 carbs in it, but I never see a spike thanks to the fat.

When I do nibble, which is rare;
handful of nuts (almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts) or a couple of squares of 100% cocoa solid chocolate (unsweetened).
