Default Baby Chicken Sticks

I was looking for some protein that is soft to chew due to a jaw problem. I thought immediately of Vienna Sausage - but it has nitrites in it which I try to avoid.

Looking in the baby food isle I saw a jar of Gerber's Chicken Sticks (no nitrites) and tried them. They're actually pretty good, with a little salt added.

The whole jar is one serving: 7g fat, 9g protein, 1g carbs.

This would make a good take along food for when one isn't sure there's anything LCHF appropriate. The sticks could also be smashed and used as a spread on LC crackers. I'm definitely going to keep a few on hand now.

Eggs would be great, except I can't have eggs or dairy, so my resources are limited.

Canned fish is also a good choice, but messy (especially my favorite - smoked kippers). The chicken sticks have more fat content which is better than fish, such as tuna, which has little and some needs to be added.

Eggs also are a bit of a commitment. The chicken sticks will stay in their sealed jar until you open them; eggs should be refrigerated after a couple of hours. They'll also age much faster than the baby food.

I like eggs as a convenient source of protein that one can find almost anywhere, but for some events, something like these chicken sticks is ideal.
