I try to keep my snacks to around 15 grams of carbohydrate or less.

There are lots of healthy snacks for diabetics. I like celery with peanut butter, or brocolli and cauliflower dipped in ranch dressing. You can also have nuts or cheese (but if you need to lose weight, watch the portions).

I have a hard time distinguishing between snacks and small meals. Just now when we arrived home from a quick trip to town, I had a coupla scoops of broccoli/cauliflower/pasta salad - prob'ly ¾ to 1 cup - and I figure it's more of a small meal than a snack.

If I grab a handful of almonds or cashews as I walk by the bowl, that's a snack.

Anyhow, most of what I choose is basic unprocessed food, and takes a lotta chewing. It seems to help if I can't just gulp it down - smaller amounts fill me up just because it takes longer to eat it. Like I really love roasted almonds, but I gotta tell ya, RAW almonds take a lot longer to eat - lotta chewing going on there! :D

Pork rinds are a great snack! 0 carbs!!
These are my new vice lol
And if you're craving a little breading on your pork chop or filler in your meatloaf, crush a bag of these & they make fine breading/bread crumbs! Yeppers, they really do! :D

(the hot/spicy ones seem to make better crumbs - just fyi . . . and using beaten egg dip will help them stick better. They don't adhere quite as well as bread, so just use enough butter/oil for frying & be gentle turning your breaded items. ;))

Me too, except I can also add large meals to that group. :rolleyes:

I do like nuts for snacks. I have been having a mug of miso while sitting at the puter. Might back off on it a bit. It is salty stuff.
