Default something that works for me

when I need or have the 'stand in front of open fridge' looking for something to snack on . I reach for a
sugar free pickle's... I buy them 4jars at a time . I never ever run out.

they hit the spot & are just the thing. However they are bad when you are drinking diet pepsi.

It's a slice of cheese for me. This is why I buy the 40 slice box.

Fortunately my sweet tooth was diminishing long before I was diagnosed with diabetes, so I rarely lust after the forbidden goodies and never have them in the house.

I am sometimes too "harsh". I feel that sometimes one must be "harsh" to get the point across.

For snacks I like to eat a few olives with a chunk of cheese. Not only good, but the olives help me get more of the fat I need in my diet.

oh its chunks of cheese & olives for me too. maybe a boiled egg even a spoonfull of peanut butter.

But when I want 'something' sweet, I go for the bread/butter pickle lol works everytime.

I have nothing in my house that I can't eat . No forbiddin items..

I do make sweets that I can eat with the stuff I can have. when I have nothing made , thats when I grab a few sweet pickles. I never did like the dill or sour ones.

It just works for me.

For me its a big square of KeriGold Cheddar, I lay it on a plate and smash as much art sweetener into it as I can. Cheese cake by the spoonful.

I love cheese, no carb yogurt with a little granola in it, handfuls of nuts and sometimes just water is enough to squash my appetite.
