Snacks at home
« on: July 29, 2013, 04:06:03 PM »
Okay.  Here's where we can post
snacks you eat at home.


Cut up meat from the night before
(I usually cook more than I need at the time
and cut it into small chunks and either
warm it up or eat it cold)


Creme Frache (the 30% fat kind)


Nuts


Nuts in a bowl with cinnamon and
almond milk on it.


Cheese chips in the microwave with salsa.


What other easy snacks do you eat?

Hard boiled eggs are simple to make.


(put as many as will fit loosely on one
level in pan, cover with water and bring
to boil.  Keep at rolling boil for 6 minutes
then run tap water into the pan to
gradually cool the eggs.  When just
about cool, put back into fridge.  I keep
a carton labeled "hard boiled"for the
purpose.

I posted this on Snacks on the road:


Deep fried pork rinds.  Chicharones.


The cheaper the better, because apparently
they are more likely to be deep fried in
pig fat instead of vegetable oil and have
fewer added ingredients.


Very crunchy.

Had a lovely response, then my curser froze and had to bail. Post gone!  I HATE that.

So, again..........
When I first began the LCHF WOE back in 2008 and realized that I could actually eat pork rinds, I was thrilled! After all, counting calories and omitting any smidgen of fat from entering my body for too many years had left me very suspicious of ALL food. I remember feeling guilty at the grocery store when putting 4,5, sometimes 6 bags of the snacks in my cart. I was sure the entire world was watching and wondering what in the world was I doing?
I have enjoyed them ever since. The only time I had a problem was when I found a brand that also included a BBQ flavor, and I began eating those a lot. Then I also began experiencing joint pains in the AM, and when I checked the list of ingredients, I was heartbroken to see wheat in the seasonings. Drat!   Bye bye BBQ Pork Rinds. I still look at them longingly at Walmart, but I don't need that pain and discomfort either.

This is an are where I definitly need help. I often leave my place by 7:30 am, and often won't get home till after 8 pm. I need to take all the food and snacks with me when I go that I can carry, and preparation is not one of my first loves to say the least.
 
I discovered that my Omega juicer can mill almond flour, so last week I was munching on the chocolate chip cookie recipe in the WBC.
 
Nuts are a good and easy standby. I should likely double check the ingredients for sugar content, but I recently found a very tasty "BBQ PORK" beef jerky at costco.
 
Otherwise I pack a bottle of homage veggie/fruit juice.
 
I tried making juice-pulp crackers in my dehydrator.. but the first attempt was a dismal failure.
 
Otherwise.. Celery and PB, nuts, I found a jam made from xylitol, brand name XY out of the states, apples/fruit, seaweed snacks, small crunchy dill pickles, and  of course as dark and natural "Bean to Bar" chocolate as I can find. For anyone visiting Toronto, you MUST check out Chocosol, and esp. their Aztec drinking chocolate pucks, if you can, take a tour.  (I'm fairly sure these meet the requirements.. )

Kydi,


We eat REAL FOOD for our meals and then take some to work for our lunch.  Soup, salads, leftovers, hard boiled eggs, scotch eggs (hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage), muffins, wraps and hundreds of other items go into our lunch boxes.  Lots of paleo/primal sites for ideas and even just read this blog for recipes and helpful hints.  The nice thing is that we really don't have a need for snacks and if we do, it is often a small portion of a leftover.  Veggies, meat protein along with fats are our mainstays.

Don't snack much, but when we do we have


Celery (sometimes with cheese)
Peanuts (DH likes these--I never eat them)
Raw Almonds
Raw Pecans
Sometimes pork skins (watch the label on these--get the ones where there are only two ingredients, pork skins and salt)


That's about it. Like I said we don't snack much.

I only eat twice a day and I rarely eat snacks. If i do it a piece of cheese and Flackers ~ which I buy at Whole Foods. There is a recipe in WBC for flax crackers but I've not made them.

That's been one of my favorite side effects of this WOE.  I used to have to eat CONSTANTLY to combat the frequent blood sugar crashes, but now I can hardly manage to eat twice a day!  I'm sure if I worked out as much as I used to then I might eat more but my lifestyle lately has not been conducive to frequent exercise apart from walking to work.

I used to eat all the time just for the sake of eating. I felt like I needed to eat all the time. Consumed by it and always thinking about what I could eat next.


I wonder how many psychologists/psychiatrists are treating people with binge eating disorder who could be cured in a matter of days just by switching to wheat free?

Right?  My supervisor's husband is a psychiatrist who does research on obesity/diabesity as a public health epidemic.  I've sent her home with information and she's totally open to it, but I think he dismisses it basically out of hand as irrelevant to his work.  Most unfortunate.

He'd be out of a job if all of his patients suddenly didn't need him any more.

I remember an old Adele Davis trick...she brought the eggs to a boil then turned off the heat right away and covered for 10 mins....kinder/gentler way to cook protein?

Hard boiled eggs are simple to make.


(put as many as will fit loosely on one
level in pan, cover with water and bring
to boil.  Keep at rolling boil for 6 minutes
then run tap water into the pan to
gradually cool the eggs.  When just

a carton labeled "hard boiled"for the
