Reading through some of the posts I saw folks mentioning pork rinds, or skins as we used to call them, and as soon as I realized they could fit into my lifestyle, I got out to the store just a few minutes ago and bought half a dozen bags so I am snackin' on some skins! Thanks y'all!

Dipped in guacamole they are great. When we go to a Mexican restaurant, I bring a few of them with me to dip into the salsa instead of the chips.

I tend to like celery sticks with a light spread of peanut butter. Crunch, fiber, protein, and taste.

I find munching on Sunflower seeds in the shell keeps my munch meter low...I found some extra large ones with low salt on the internet!

Just finished my weekly consumption of Pistachios - Nuts are my biggest snack food, it seems to suppress my appetite and doesn't affect my BGs as much as other foods. I often will alternate between pistachios and almonds.

Decided to mix it up this afternoon. I was looking for pork rinds but couldn't find any so I went with plain Beef Jerky It's marketed as a smart snack - 9 g of protein, 60 Calories, 0.5 g of fat and 3 g of carbs. That's for a 1/4 of the package not the whole thing. It also has 18% sodium and yes it does taste a bit salty - I don't salt my food so I find it salty.
It will be interesting to see what affect it will have on my BGS. It shouldn't have any affect but we will see ...... I'm starting to get tired of munching on nuts all the time.

I'm eating mixed nuts but I think they're too salty. Maybe I can email the grocery store and ask them to stock a low salt or no salt version.

You might need that extra salt when you start eating more keto. Eliminating a lot of processed foods also eliminates a lot of salt from your diet. Have you just started eating the mixed nuts? May need to see if your nightly calf cramps are better with the extra salt you are getting from them.
