Hi there! I am not sure what JUDDD entails, but there is a forum here specifically for JUDDD: JUDDD - Low Carb Friends

I'll bet there are a ton of great ideas there that won't conflict with your specific plan. I would, as an example, hate to recommend a high-fat protein if you need a lean protein, etc.

Way to go on three amazing weeks!

Are you doing JUDDD, or back to low carb, or what?

And why are you only eating salad and meat, whatever your plan is?

I don't know what you can eat on your diet, but today I made a huge taco salad! Lettuce, onions, jalapeños, shredded cheddar, crumbled hamburger with seasonings, and topped with a big dollop of sour cream! (I wanted guac on it too, but didn't have any).

Sorry! yes I am back to low carb. I'm eating cheese, eggs, meat and salad. It is just easy but now I'm getting sick of it. I did make some cream of mock potato soup and some jalepeno poppers but I know there is so many more items I have forgotten about. Looking for everyone's favorites...

Whats your new food or snack that you love? might help.

There are just so many ways to spice and cook different meats and vegetables that I never get bored, unless I don't feel like cooking. Even then, I can be happy with smoked salmon or another cold meat and my spicy mayo dip as a meal. Maybe add a little pickle? Fabulous.

Linda Sue's site is fabulous for a lot of people. And don't forget the recipe forum here.

I found a meatloaf recipe on this forum and a crustless quiche that I love. Also deviled eggs. I do miss things that crunch so I also eat radishes a lot.

Drain any liquid from steamed cauliflower and add to cheese mixture.
Stir cauliflower and cheese mixture together.

WOE: Low carb
green bean fries

THE ESTIMATED TOTAL TIME TO MAKE THIS RECIPE IS 15-20 MINUTES.

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2
If using frozen green beans, pop the bag of green beans in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, or until just de-thawed (or you could leave them out at room temperature for a few hours). If using fresh green beans, wash and snip off the ends.
3
Place green beans on prepared baking pan, making sure they are evenly spread out, and none are laying on top of each other, (this will ensure even crispiness!) Sprinkle seasonings and parmesan cheese evenly over green beans.
4
Place green beans in the pre-heated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy! (To make them extra crispy, I like to broil them for an extra 1-2 minutes before pulling them out of the oven). Enjoy immediately with low sugar ketchup or dipping sauce of choice. Great with Ranch!!!

Texas Lady, those recipes look yummy!!!!

OP- I second the suggestion to look over the induction food porn threads. They give tons of ideas, so yummy.

Tonight I had a tenderized steak with LC BBQ sauce, smashed cream cheesy garlic fauxtatoes, and caprese salad with balsamic reduction. It was good!

Here are a few other things I have:
LC pizza, crust made from Gourmet Girls blog (very good!!)
Mozzarella sticks ( covered in cream then parm)
Spaghetti squash with LC butter chicken
Spaghetti squash with butter & parm
Antipasto platter ( aged meat, good cheese, good olives)
Roasted vegetables
Baby smokies rolled in bacon and oven cooked
Big Mac in a bowl
Pepperoni chips
Fried zucchini with three cheese ranch dip (so rich)
Caramelized scallops
Sausage & peppers
Quesadilla with WB wrap

As you can see, the sky's the limit.
I am trying nachos supreme and a loaded baked fauxtatoes salad this weekend, yummy!!

I also made a LC lasagne. Best I ever had. Previously had tried spinach, green beans, and zukes for layering. The green beans were okay but not great.

It's the weirdest thing ever, but chicken deli meat, gluten free no nitrates..the one in slices not shaved, and if you can find without the "skin" edging. When you layer it with the rest if the lasagne ingredients, it makes the nicest, most authentic tasting lasagne I've had yet! And so easy!!!!!

Kale chips can be nice. You just roast them on parchment until light brown. I heard baby spinach word great too, want to try that as kale is pricey here. You spritz them with evoo and then add a bit of popcorn seasoning if desired.

Sorry, I noticed you were looking for grab n go snacks.

I would try a recipe for homemade Atkins/ quest/ protein bars, you know what's going into it, and it saves money.

You could try the cheesecake muffins.

How about mixed nuts or almonds? When you have time, put a portion into snackie bags so you can just grab one when you need it

Cheese strings? Or babybel for a treat?

Hub loves turkey bites. They're by pillars. Easy to grab on the way out.

The sour cream and PB pudding is good, rich n creamy

I make big train frapp every day, you could get a travel tumbler and drink that to go, or iced coffee, or protein shakes.

Little Sammies or wraps with wheat belly wraps or oopsies.
You could also make mcmuffins with them.

Pre cut long celery sticks. Get a disposable cup and put a T or 2 of good dressing to cover the bottom. Then fill the cup with upright celery. Stick it in your drink holder in the car and so easy to snack on the go. Very portable.

Chicken salad/tuna/egg can be stored in a Baggie, and you can eat it out of that for no bulky containers. Just pitch it when done.

You are really only limited to what you are willing to try or not try in the kitchen.... My only gripe with LC is that I find myself cooking a lot more.... Which makes sense.... No sandwiches made with bread, so I need to make a LC bread.... Can't buy nearly as many LC desserts as I can make myself..... Can't just heat up any old can of soup.

But now I have dessert almost 5x a week, versus 2x a week before LC. I eat buffalo wings without guilt...hell yes I will take blue cheese dressing, thank you! Oh, and creamed spinach made with cream and extra Parmesan cheese.... Yes, please. I grab and go with this, as I have them all made up.

Don't want more "salad"? Try a blended salad if that fits in your LC plan. I have that once a week... It is salad but tastes nothing like salad. Lol. You can grab and go with these too.

I have been known to eat a tbs or two of homemade pesto for a snack.

So many choices as long as you step outside the "easy" box!

I Love this: Spaghetti Squash Pie

MANY recipes from Linda Sue's site (post 7 above). She has induction recipes with an asterisk*. Any of the quiches on her site are great. We love one that's spinach and mushrooms. We usually add just a little ham, sausage or bacon for a flavor twist. VERY filling.

Or go up into the area where the Eating and Exercise plans are and look at the Atkins Induction thread. In it there are Induction Food Porn threads; #1, #2 and #3. TONs of recipes and variety.

They're in here: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/atkins-induction/

Grab and go is a little difficult until you get through induction and see how you do with nuts etc. I will do protein shakes, almonds,slim jims, low carb proteiarn bars and even cook bacon up ahead of time and throw in a baggie to have with a shake when on the run. I keep cocoa roasted almonds in the console of my car just in case and a protein bar in my purse. I also make pork rhinds with melted butter and toss with cinnamon band truvia, and put them in a baggie to take for a sweet treat.
I hope you find what works for you...I know food boredom can be the pits but when I think back I ate the same food repetitively when I was high carb and had bouts of food boedome then as well...I think you are just noticing it more now that you are probaly in carb withdrawl and your brain is trying to trick you into eating carby food for a fix...
Good luck with finding your new go to onthe go foods.

I just started Atkins and am too missing my snack bars.
I now carry around 100 calorie nut snack packs (4g carbs) or cheese sticks
(1g carbs). These are filling! Plus I get a large iced coffee with cream & splenda from Starbucks (2g carbs) which also is filling and helps with my sweet tooth.

Not sure if you're still in induction or not, so some of these may or may not work

---One of my faves is to steam up an artichoke and have it w/mayo and butter. YUM.

---I also buy frozen crab cakes at Trader Joes and add tomato onion and tartar sauce on the top. Very good.

---Also, any dip you like is delish spread on escarole leaves that have a thin delicate crunch and are a nice change from celery.

---A bowl of egg salad with pickles is a fave.

---If you have a Buffalo Wild Wings near you check out their dry rub salt and vinegar and Lemon pepper. Very low in carbs compared to the more saucy wings and are delish.

---pick up some sliced roast beef and spread cream cheese on it, put a pickle slice in the middle and roll it up. Great to keep in the refrigerator for a snack.

---blackberries in HWC with a dash of splenda is a great dessert ---sometimes I top it w/coconut crisps and or a few sliced almonds.

---Pepitas are a fun snack, crunchy and a nice change from nuts

---Cream soda, I use lots of flavors, love Hanson's black cherry and Diet Rite's tangerine, neither have aspertame. Fill large glass w/ice pour a quarter of cream, then add soda and stir. Like a dreamsicle and another nice dessert alternative or snack for a sweet tooth.

---Buy a rotisserie chicken and make chicken salad with it---add mayo, celery, shredded sharp cheddar, onions, roasted nuts of your choice, and some haved grapes if you can afford a few extra carbs. Takes about 10 minutes to make a big batch to have around for a couple of days.

Cream cheese muffins are my favorite LC sweet snack/dessert. I just never get tired of them.

I also use almonds (salt and vinegar are a current favorite) parmesan crisps, almond butter crackers, bacon jerky, good cheese and any crudite that strike my fancy for snacks.

Try paying a mortgage on a house that wont sell and a towhouse apartment talk about broke, Any way I would buy a package of pinto beans back than for 60 cents and a package of tortillas.
Day1 bean soup and cornbread
Day2 Refried beans on a tortilla
Day3 huevo rancheros and a side of beans
I also bought instant potatoes and roll mix they don't make any more and gravy
Lunches were fideo a 20 cent box of pasta
Package of lentils for soup
my girls were never big eaters and never complained we were happy to be safe

I don't think any of that is low carb.
I'm not sure how many of those other ideas would be considered grab and go items, but they sound delicious! Now that it's cooler I'll be cooking more, and I definitely want to try that cauliflower casserole!

make up some tuna salad or egg salad or chicken salad to scoop up with veggie strips.

This is good in a big lettuce leaf:

10-14 oz cooked cubed chicken
half a box of firm silken tofu or 1/2 to 2/3 of a brick of cream cheese
whirl the chicken around in food processor, add the tofu or cream cheese to combine.
Season w/salt and pepper or add a little broth if it's too thick.
By hand, stir in some diced celery, peppers, and a little bit of onion for a bit of crunch. I've also added dill relish to it.
Makes a great filling for your bread alternative (lettuce or LC bread product) and it's good on top of a green salad or to scoop with veggie strips. Keeps pretty well in the frig, so it would do for 3 lunches in one quick cooking session.

buffalo chicken dip
can of chicken, drained and rinsed
half to whole brick of cream cheese, softened (i like mine meatier and less gloppy so I use 1/2 c)
1/2 to 1 c shredded cheddar
2-3 tbl hot sauce such as frank's

nuke all but chicken. stir. Add chicken. Then when you're ready to eat it, nuke it on 70% power for a minute or two. Use it to roll up with cold cuts, or with veg strips.

flax muffin instead of granola bar.
One Minute Muffin

1/4 cup flax meal
1 tsp baking powder
1-2 packets sweetener
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 egg

Mix it all together really well and microwave for one minute.

Lettuce wrap or LC tortilla instead of bread. I like the homemade kind.
