Need Protein Snack Ideas

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.

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
