Need Protein Snack Ideas
0

11 posts in this topic

I need ideas for protein snacks for when I have a blood sugar low. I need something I can carry with me. Also needs to be low fat and low salt, so things like cheese and jerky are out. I'm not a big fan of commerical bars, but am open to recipes for homemade protein bars. Sorry to sound so picky but I'm getting tired of almonds and am running out of ideas.

Hard boiled eggs can be good. I like to combine them with lemon, celery, and salt. If you like them un crunched you can carry it in an egg carton. Make sure it is labeled hard boiled so you don't have trouble cracking an egg one day.

Sunflower seeds? Individual servings of peanut butter?

Some of the fast things I eat are:

yogurt (add nuts and fruit)

cheese

trail mix (I use raw almonds, fresh walnuts and unsalted peanuts, chocolate chips or M&Ms, craisins, raisins, sunflower seeds, chopped dates)

almonds

orange juice

banana/peanut butter

cottage cheese

peanuts

a big swallow of chocolate milk (when I don't have time to eat)

muffins made with walnuts (you can make mini muffins, keep in the freezer)

3 bean salad

chips and bean dip with salsa

and recently I started making these:

how about cold leftover chicken? turkey?

I try to snack before I get that "feeling". The fastest thing that works for me is chocolate milk (cuz I don't like plain). Or yogurt, I buy the big cartons.

You can repackage in a good closing container, add a small ice pack and stick in your purse/bag.

I was going to say Lara bars until you said you wanted to make them yourself. Anyway, a quick search found this and they look pretty good. I may even decide to try out making some. http://www.damyhealth.com/2011/03/how-to-make-homemade-lara-bars/

I make "Larabars" all the time. Not exactly low calorie, but I throw some dates, a handful of cashews, a dash of vanilla, and a pinch of salt in the food processor. Usually add some chocolate chips too. If it's too sticky, I add more cashews until it's the consistency I want. You can roll them into little balls but I like them shaped like a cookie. Literally takes under 5 minutes and tastes so much better than the purchased kind.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
