Pickles

Did I find the perfect down day food.

I have the large dill pickles. Kiddo wanted one to eat and I read the label.

1 oz---0 calories

hmm

I just ate 2 large pickles.

while I know nothing is ever 0 cals.---this has to be ok to eat a few of them on a down day.

of course sodium is obviously there but drinking tons of liquid.

Is it ok to snack out on a few of these thru the day? It sure would help take that edge off a down day for me.

I eat pickle spears and each one is 5 calories so you can certainly enjoy a few spears on a DD.

I buy kosher dill pickle spears in the gallon jar and keep it in the frig. DH and I both grab one if we think we are hungry but don't have time or don't want to eat and we are good to go.

I discovered those on my last DD, too. We have spears - I figure 2 = 10 calories. Quite the deal!

Pickles are my best friend on my DDs - especially at work. Sometimes I get that lightheaded feeling too from fasting and those electrolytes in the pickle juice (read salt) help quite a bit! I have dipped my pickles in Chia seeds too. (but that adds calories).

I also just slice cucumbers, lightly salt them and have them as a nice crunchy salty snack.

Pickled okra is also good. You can make them according to the recipe above, or buy them in the grocery stores. I love olives too, but obviously they are higher cals.

I like mine with a wedge of the garlic & herb LC cheese. Obviously higher cals but I use that as a DD meal a lot, when I'm not doing the potato thing.

You have to add a slice of turkey if you're going to use LC.

Call me neurotic, but I weigh my pickles and I go by 4 calories and ounce. A small Kosher Dill is usually about 12-15 calories.

I am a total pickle addict! Best snack food ever!

You can pickle other veggies too - I've done cauliflower and carrots as well as cucumbers

Those are good but for a DD, I don't like the processed lunch meat enough to waste the calories on it. I do love me some pickles though! I've started using them as a bit of a snack on my potato days. Just 1 to try to last a bit longer before I eat again. No fat so technically should not interfere. And it hasn't seemed to slow me down.

I weigh my pickles as well. The Jar says 35 calorie for 100g, for me that is only 3 spears.

I buy the "real" stuff from the deli. I find that a slice helps my hunger sometimes better than just vegs alone. One ounce (of turkey or ham) is 25 calories.
