Need Protein Snack Ideas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
