What Are Some Of Your Favorite Snacks?

Recommended Posts

You make the veggies sound great. I started counting calories this week and it is hard cutting back. I am adding more fresh veggies, but salad is bad on my guts. I had some gluten-free chees puffs and read them as 1 calorie a piece then my son tells me today that I read it wrong and they are 5 a piece. Opps!

This recouperating is hard. I sit around, sleep, eat and watch TV. I see the dr. tomorrow hopefully I will be able to start my water aerobics class soon.

Anyone like Jicama? Only 45 caloris for a cup cubed.

Jicama rules, Blessings. :) I can't eat salad without immediately running to the powderroom after, too. :(

Fruit I seem to be fine with though. I just eat apples and pineapples and things with substance. (ah, peaches) lol

Things will get better though

good luck @ the dr!

I don't want to sound preachy, but while you're healing, you need to make sure you get enough good dietary fats. Like organic meats and avocado and olive oil and fish and stuff. A good percentage of the vitamins you need are "fat-soluble", which means you won't be able to digest them without some dietary fat, so you'll stay malnourished. Honestly, cutting back on calories should probably wait until you've had a chance to heal for a while. Just my two cents.

HI JNbunny

Thanks for the input. Mostly I am cutting back on the snack foods. Mainly from the list above.

Before I started my maintenance calories was about 2200 I'm aiming for 1400 but eating more like 1600-1700. I will make sure not to cut back to much for a while. I see my GI Sept 2 and will talk to him about it. Thanks so much.

Check out my thread on our Celiac Sprue Association mtg today. All the wonderful food ideas from a dietician in town. :P

Chunky applesauce with cinnamon, dried cranberries, a tablespoon of peanut butter, a tablespoon of Hershey's dry coco powder, and 2 minutes of nuking power. Remember to tap your foot during the nuking.

If you like shrimp these are two good ones:

spring rolls--

You cut up some cucumber, carrots and thaw some big shrimp. You add some spinach leaves and fresh cilantro, a little lime juice and some thai sweet sauce (you can make it with fresh orange juice, vinegar, sugar, bird's eye peppers, garlic and a little xantan gum). You arrange everything artfully in a tapioca rice wrapper (I use a double).

Dairy free, gluten free and very low carb. A guilt free treat!

Another favorite is shrimp-stuffed peppers--

You take some shrimp, mirin, soy sauce, cilantro and sesame oil and mix in a little corn starch so it sticks together. You can put some carrots in there too if you want. Then you stuff it into peppers that you cut in half, de-seed and de-rib. You can either bake or steam these for a lower fat version, or batter them with chickpea flour, egg whites beaten stiff, a bit of cream of tartar and a bit of baking soda and salt. If you batter them, you can fry them in olive oil. I like to use the long green peppers that are pretty hot-- the heat leaves a bit when cooked.

DFGF and low carb-- especially the baked/ steamed version.

I love Kind bars. I think that's what they're called. The Nut and Fruit delight is just that--delicious and good to have on hand when I'm at coffee hour after church where there is nothing gluten-free.

For those choco-holics as well as those looking for a DEVINE snack under 100calories, I created this last night and now I don't think I'll be able to go a night without it:

16oz near boiling water

1 pkg sugar free hot cocoa mix

1 TBS sugar free chocolate pudding powder

whisk well, it thickens perfectly into the most rich hot chocolate that tastes like it's 1000 calories
