Medi Friendly Packaged Snacks

Forgive me there is already a thread about this (I found a snack RECIPE thread) but I thought it would be good to have a list of healthy low carb snacks that we can grab and go at times.

I had this the other day and I was floored at how good it tasted:
OsTrim Beef & Ostrich Sticks. They honestly tasted like a slim jim with out the grease. I also tried the Pepper Flavored one but didn't care for it as much. They are a bit high in sodium for 1 item but I kept the rest of my diet very clean with very, very little salt & made sure I got my water in. I was wanting pepperoni since I was at a kid Bday party with pepperoni & cheese pizza.

Here are the nutritional facts for the Beef & Ostrich sticks:

Personally, I try for natural snacks, like raw almonds, grapes, berries, and such. I have stayed away from anything processed as much as possible. Too much sodium and other stuff that I prefer not to eat anymore. Lettuce, green beans, lemons, oranges, peaches....

Basically packaged snacks are not a part of my life anymore. However, to each his/her own.

I agree, the sodium gets very high with the packaged stuff and unfortunately, most protein-filled snacks have lots of sodium! I'm still on the hunt for something convenient, low in carb, and high in protein to grab and go. I can't eat nuts or I would definitely do that.

When you're eating 500 calories of protein a day, it's far less concern. Now that I'm eating 1200 though, I feel puffy half way through the day if I don't watch the salt! Not a fan of that at all!

We have anaphlactic nut allergies in our home so we don't bring any nuts or nut products in the home at all and unfortunately right now I'm on week 1 so I can't have anything but proteins :-(. A boiled egg can only go so far :-(. I'm trying to keep my sodium from 900-1200 and get all of my waters in.

I would LOOOVE packed snacks that are healthy, low sodium that I can have in the first month or so.

Cocoa Roast Almonds

Hi Ashley,

I don't know about the South Beach nuts, but Emerald makes 100 calorie packs of Cocoa Roast Almonds (Dark Chocolate). They are certainly not zero carb, so I save them for when I'm having a chocolate craving. They're dusted with cocoa powder, so not chocolate covered like a goober, but I think they're delicious and satisfying. My clinic recommended them and I found them at Target.

Nutrition facts:
Calories: 100
Fat: 8g
Carbohydrate: 4g (2g Fiber/1 g Sugar)
Protein: 3g

Sorry that doesn't help you, With Gratitude...

I have always tried to find the chocolate covered soy nuts someone mentioned here but I can't either! They sounds so good and I've never had a craving for soy nuts beyond a single portion.
