Induction Friendly Snacks
 
Hi everyone. I am starting Induction and I am wondering about easy snacks to take on the run. I am a teacher, and I am not allowed to have food in my room because of food allergies. That means I need to run upstairs to the teacher's room, eat something quick and run back downstairs before my next class. I am getting tired of cheese sticks and celery with cream cheese. Thanks!

I am not sure if this is on induction but what about Dannons yougurt..3 carbs i think, eggs, cold chicken?

perclady 09-04-2006 01:32 PM

I am a teacher as well and I have hardboiled eggs, pepperoni sticks, cut veggies, cream cheese and cucumber, hummous and celery on hand. I am a specialist teacher so am at 6 different schools and need to eat quickly in my car. Mostly I end up having mini snacks during the day and no real lunch time.

*veggies & dip (broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, etc)
*pepperoni chips
*summer sausage and cheese cubes

Cook up some pepperoni slices and baggie them. Also, cooked low carb meatballs are a tasty snack, with some bleu cheese dressing for dip. Use pork rinds as a 'filler' in the meatballs or just parm cheese. Cook up some chicken tenders 'fried' and baggie them. Cut up celery & cukes to dip too.

hi!...i love chicken tenders....i dip them in an egg-white wash, then in some parmesan cheese, & i fry them in some extra virgin olive oil....dip them w/blue cheese....yummmmmy!

scorpiogurl 09-05-2006 08:14 PM

Wow
 
Those chicken tenders sound Great ...I will have to try that! :notwrthy:

How about making up some breakfast muffins (eggs, cheese, broccoli, cream) in muffin tins - do you have a fridge in the teachers' room? I am on the run alot, and I find these keep well with just a cold pack in my lunch bag and are quick and easy.

Good luck. ;)

I buy deli ham by the chunk and cube that along with cheese cubes for a quick snack. Also when I make tuna salad I make triple the amount at one time. You can buy a small thermal container (cup size) with a wide mouth and take that to work. I make thick cucumber slices to scoop it up.

Weight stall
 
Hi everyone, iam new to his site and iam here looking for a little help or some tips! I started the Atkins about 4 weeks ago and i have seemed to reach a stall in weight loss. I wonder what iam doing wrong. I was eating those Atkins bars and drinking some very diluted crystal light. I pretty much have cut those out this week and my weight is still the same. Does anyone have induction tips??? Thanks:)

I am a teacher as well and I eat veggies in class. I have peanut allergies, so I know how you feel. I bring a small plastic bag full of cut up broccoli, peppers, and cherry tomatoes. It is so filling and my students have started bringing in healthier snacks. It is such a good example for them as well. They ask me why I eat veggies and I tell them the health benefits. :)

ShesSuperCool 05-26-2009 01:59 PM

You know....a lot of boards have people saying instead of starting new threads do a search, and here I've seen several people saying not to bump old threads. Why not if it's relevant? I've been on message boards since '94 and I never seem to see the same "rule" twice.

I did a google search and this is the thread I came up with for "induction snacks". Whether it's from this week or four years ago it may have information that could use reposting.

EssBee 02-01-2010 09:43 PM

I can't really go get a snack at work. I keep a thermal lunch bag (with blue ice in it) and keep it filled with easy to nibble on snacks, I have to be able to just take a bite now and then, very quick:
pepperoni & cream cheese sandwiches
cubed cheese/meat
beefstick
cheesesticks
macadamia nuts
celery & little cup of ranch or dip
cheese "crackers" (nuked american cheese - 1 slice makes 16 crackers)
cheese "cracker" & cream cheese sandwiches
hard boiled eggs
rollups using deli meat or dried beef

Heresy! You can't get tired of cheese sticks or celery and cream cheese! (Said as I'm eating monterey jack cheese sticks!)

Cold sliced steak
cold sliced roast beef
Queen olives
an avocado
cold chicken (off the bone)

AngieCakes 02-02-2010 11:41 AM

Old reliable = roll ups.

Lunch meat with cream cheese spread on them and your choice of pickle or green olive sliced. Roll it all up.

I use natural turkey and artichoke spinach or chive onion cream cheese and a green olive. They haven't failed me yet, very filling and totally hit the spot.

Boil 1 cup water, 2 cups sugar [splenda!], 2 tbsp vinegar and 3 cinnamon sticks for 1 minute.

Pour this over the pickles and put lid on.

Store in frig. for 1 week turning and shaking each day.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a little new to new to the Induction phase of Atkins but I thought while on induction you were not permitted flaxmeal or any of the hardier vegetables like asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, or squash. I guess you can have the veg mentioned but they are so high in carbs they would eat up a lot of the 20 gms you are permitted daily. If I am wrong in this thinking could someone please let me know because the list of items posted above, that I have cut and pasted below would greatly improve my induction phase.

Snacks I carry around: cold bacon, cold breakfast sausages, jerky (I make my own)

BTW I love the idea of resurrecting old threads!

Cedargardenfoods 03-18-2010 09:36 PM

What do you guys do when its late night snack? Thats the hardest part for me :S, I keep eating cheese but I know its supposed to be 4 oz a day :S What do you guys think /i should snack on?

bluebirdrn 03-19-2010 09:11 PM

I like old threads too. Sometimes good discussions get lost in the shuffle. For a late night snack you could have pepperoni, pork rinds if you like those, jello with whipped cream, I like onion and chive cream cheese on celery

AngieCakes 03-21-2010 01:42 PM

Thick-cut bacon was buy one get one free today at the grocery store.. :kicking:

Stevie Renee 03-22-2010 08:45 PM

Rootbeer Float:
1 cup of diet rootbeer, 1 ounce of heavy whip cream, ice - blend with hand mixer or blender:)

I eat it with a small spoon to make it last longer.

freefaller 07-09-2010 05:35 PM

Did you find your cravings getting worse? or did you find a snakc that was ATKINS ACCEPTED?

We started on Monday and I am finding it to be a lot easier than I thought. So much food is accepted so I don't feel hungry. I did notice the late night craving so I ate some sugarfree jello and whip cream. Listed as acceptable in the book I believe. I HOPE ANYHOW lol

jcmehsmom 09-16-2010 01:49 PM

On a under 20gms carb diet, sugar free Jello saved me by helping with my sugar cravings. I think sugar free hard candies is ok if you keep the aspertame low. As for snacks, pork rinds helped me with subsituting crackers/chips with toppings like smoked salmon w/cream cheese spread, tuna or chicken salad. Drinking soda water helps my cravings sometimes...even kosher pickles helps..zero carbs. Just bought a large jar of Vlasic kosher whole dill pickles (80 fl. oz) over 2 quarts for $2.98, they are very reasonable priced. It's been 8 days for me and I'm still losing. I gained 1 lb 2 days ago because of over carbs with vegetables but lost 2 the next day when I kept it under 20 grams. For me that's real important if I want to lose weight. I don't see it in the mirror but my knees don't hurt as much anymore which was my purpose for this diet.

To add, some of my favourite snacks:

Homemade ranch with brocolette.
Devilled eggs with homemade mayo.
Chicken tenders with homemade blue cheese dressing.
Homemade chai tea with HWC and truvia (I haven't had stall issues) and it gets some fluid in, to boot.

mspartytime 01-16-2013 02:46 PM

Fat bombs are my new fav. :yummy:

Skinnurse 01-17-2013 11:37 PM

To answer the late night snack question..I love!!!!!

In a bowl, some mayo, shredded cheddar, dash of hot sauce..nuke it until it's bubbly and melted. Serve with pork rinds. Like chips n dip with almost no carbs
