Oh, I have another to add to my list....

I bought some bell peppers, various colors, red, yellow, green. Cut up into strips, store in fridge in water. Then, eat with plain yogurt. Perhaps spice up the yogurt with some ground black pepper, garlic, whatever suits your fancy!

The whole idea for a snack is something quick, limited prep, something you have on hand. I've been packing my dh lunch with such snack items. I also make him "sandwiches", anything that would go in a sandwich, minus the bread! Although he isn't currently diabetic, doesn't hurt to eat healthy! I also make wraps with lettuce leaves, or, sometimes cabbage leaves, just experiment. don't be afraid to give things a try, the worse that will happen is you won't like it. Really go through the produce section of your store, give those "weird" looking vegetables a try!

One could get used to this healthy stuff...lol!

I stumbled onto this one. Very good.
I sampled goat cheese at work. These goat cheeses come in a log (cylinder shaped package) and they are soft and a little sticky.
This afternoon I dipped pecans in it and rolled the cheese in pecans,sunflower seeds and pumkin seeds (all raw nusts and seeds.)
Lovely!

Default Two of my daily snacks

In the morning I use 2 Tbsp of Peanut Buttermixed with 2/3 of a diced apple. A few drops of EZSweetz if I desire more sweetness. I have an allergic reaction to uncooked apples and the PB seems to make them palatable for me. I don't like the added calories but my current diet allows for it.

In the afternoon I have an ounce of roasted nuts, Planters Deluxe with Sea Salt. I was roasting them myself for awhile using Walnuts, Almonds, and Pecans and getting good results but some weeks I am too busy or lazy to do it.

I came up with a fruit smoothie that worked for me last night but I'll need more time/experimentation before I am ready to share. I spiked on it but it stayed below my personal glucose threshold of 140. I'll see if I can modify the recipe to lower the calories and the spike to under 120. Despite not spiking I had severe dry-mouth while sleeping due to the smoothie.
