I didn't know avocados were considered a fruit? Go figure! I love avocados....I have a really great recipe for guacamole. Perhaps I'll post in the recipe section. I like to eat it with celery, but I may just buy a bag of pork rinds and try that instead of tortilla chips or pita chips.Look for high-fiber vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, etc.
Be careful about fruits - they have a lot of natural sugar & will prob'ly spike you. The only fruits I eat are avocados by the ton, and tomatoes sparingly.
I use canned fish like salmon & tuna - I also use smoked oysters in a dip that is great as a snack.

I really have to look up your recipe for that smoked oyster dip that you make. It sounds delicious! It is posted right?
I love tuna...could eat it everyday!
Almonds (plain) seem to be the best macronutrient-wise. Peanuts and Cashews seem to naturally have more carbohydrate, so I base my 'nut-snacks' around almonds...Nuts, lots of nuts. Great snack.
I was directed I could have any kind of nuts except peanuts because peanuts are actually listed as a legume rather than a nut. I do however eat natural peanut butter, but do so sparingly. I don't know why but it does affect my bg's. But, then again, everyone is different so if it doesn't bother your bg's, more power to you! I do love peanuts and peanut butter, so to give them up is quite a challenge. Good Luck!
I was eating a spoon of peanut butter at lunch and dinner every day. It was my favorite treat. We went on vacation and I didn't have any peanut butter for 7 days.....my BG was perfect. Came home and pulled out the jar again and sugar was staying up. Stopped eating it again and BG is back down-just shows how we all react differently. If it had not been for vacation I would have never realized it. I wonder if there is a sf peanut butter syrup. Vacation ruined my life.lolI eat just about everything that has been listed above, but there is one thing I eat a lot of . I'm not sure if everyone would agree with and thats peanutbutter. I take a teaspoon and get me a big old spoon full and a cup of coffee and enjoy.:target::target:
Oh, no you do NOT! You eat great!!!I eat a lot of almonds. You can have 28 at 5 carbs and it is considered 2 net carbs if you count them that way. I munch on them while I cook dinner so I don't taste something I shouldn't. For a snack I have actually dipped them in Franks Hot Sauce. I also made deviled eggs with horseradish sauce and added pecans. Hubby thought that was wonderful. I know I eat weird.
