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.

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
