I need some quick "induction approved" snack ideas

I am starting induction on Monday and would like some suggestions for something I can eat in the car on the way home from the gym. I don't like cheese, so that is out. I am extremely hungry when I get done at the gym so I need something filling. I would like to stay away from the Atkins bars/treats. Thanks!

Cook up, in advance, some meat you like. I find having cold turkey, ham, and sausage in the fridge makes putting together snacks very quick. Hardboiled eggs are indispensable, as is celery with cream cheese. Jicama sticks seasoned with chili powder, a tin of sardines, even a protein shake are all quick ideas. Meatballs made ahead, too. If you don't like most cheese that does really limit the quick snack ideas (many incorporate cheese) but with just a little prep once or twice a week you can keep things on hand to help you along.

Oh, and don't forget the ubiquitous pork rinds or half an avocado with some salt

This is what I eat in the car on the way home from working out:

Emerald 100 Calorie Packs of Pecan & Walnuts/Vanilla/Cinnamon/Cocoa Roast Almonds
(1-2 carbs each)
Hard Boiled Egg (0 carbs)
Pepperoni slices (0 carbs)
Quest bar (2-4 carbs)

Then, I try to eat within 1-2 hours after that, whether it be a smoothie or a meal.

I do pork rinds for snacks. I can't eat cheese or nuts because they stall me dead-cold and I never eat franken-foods (processed bars, meals etc). Pork rinds have been a blessing!! ZERO carbs.

I give a second vote to pork rinds. Not the fluffy kind you get in a bag at the grocery store, but those from an ethnic market. There's a Colombian bakery near my house that does them to perfection... pork skin and fat with a little bit of meat attached, deep fried until crispy. Oh my.

I AM unusually carb sensitive & Atkins bars (love 'em) but they trigger cravings for me.
I buy pre-boiled eggs in the deli.
I eat pork rinds... but eat too many I'm afraid if I eat them as is... and they are high salt. At home I spread them out in a big cereal bowl, spray with butter spray & sprinkle with cinnamon & Splenda. I eat half as many that way.
I like jerky type items but watch the carb count as some seem sweet to me.
Not all cheese is created equal but it is in the limited category.

I'd like to find more induction friendly snacks.

My daughters softball coach used to pass out pickle spears to the girls after their workouts. He said it helped prevent cramps and replenish electrolytes (or something like that). So, my go to snack after running is meat wrapped dill pickle spears. I use a thin sliced deli meat and wrap up 2 or 3 of those bad boys and just keep them in my lunch bag.

I make buffalo chicken bites when I am lowcabing. I just cut boneless chicken into bite sized pieces, toss it with Franks, and bake until it's done. It's very easy if you have to eat in the car.

I'm always looking for snack ideas...I think it's because I get bored at work and focus on food.

One comment I have...I'm surprised at the number of processed meats that are recommended as snacks...shouldn't these be avoided? I'm talking pepperoni and deli meat, mostly, but also bacon (which I LOVE). Thoughts?

Welcome
To answer your question: it depends on the plan.
Many plans go semi-paleo and try to stay away from any processed foods.
Some are less strict.
Honestly, since there are so many of the same types of plans, every "new" one needs a hook to make it slightly different than the one "just like it"
Basically: if your plan doesn't allow bacon, well not much more to be said (Kidding, if something isn't allowed on the plan you've chosen, then don't eat it ).

Depends on what plan you are on. Atkins doesn't discourage processed meats.

Hi Dottie-thanks! I was thinking of avoidance of those types of food in general, due to the chemicals, rather than and exclusion due to a diet.

Either way-I'm not giving up bacon.

I just restocked the fridge yesterday and it included processed meats. They are by no means a staple, but rather a quick snack that I can grab while running around through out the week. Would I rather fry up a pork chop or a burger? Yep! But the way I think of it is like this - DO WHAT EVER IS NECESSARY NOT TO FAIL! And for me, that's having a few quick grabable items that don't require any prep (though I will cook up big batches ahead of time and bag them), but still.

And we will also not give up bacon. Ever.

I'm assuming it's difficult to find this in the states but I'm gonna throw it out there anyway just in case.

My favorite quick snack is dried fish with butter.



The fish is 80% protein but people tend to put a lot of butter on it, sometimes even half and half, so the ratio evens out from that. Just 50 grams of this (not counting the weight of the butter) is enough to get me full. It's expensive but again you take into account that you don't need much of it.

Even people who hate regular fish often love this as a snack since it tastes very different.

Yeah no. LOL I wonder if my mom could find something similar at the Asian markets where she lives (I'm across the continent and am not blessed with the same stores.. boo!).

A baggie with a chunk of coconut butter to nibble on.. only works when it is cold out tho. Coconut butter melts at 70-something degrees.

I buy canned seafood (LOVE smoked oysters and sardines!) and keep them in my car with napkins and a plastic fork. If I am hungry it is a quick, simple meal. You can also make tuna or egg salad in advance. Minature bell peppers are a quick, crunchy treat to eat by hand, very refreshing, and you can pair them with a little cheese or meat. There are a lot of jerkies you can buy. The new tuna ahi jerky is so good, and very easy to eat on the move!
