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.

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.damyhealt...made-lara-bars/

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 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.
