Some people do other mashes as potato substitutes like mashed turnips. I have not tried them yet.

Welcome to the team!! I can't add to any of the snacks. Spinach is a great substitute for pasta in Italian and other dishes. Love mashed cauliflower! You can add a small bit of quinoa to give it more substance and flavor.

Welcome! I found mashed cauliflower a great substitution for mashed potatoes. Not everyone's cup of tea but it definitely works for me.

Most of us were addicted to some form of carbs in the past and some of us still are. I ate potatoes almost every day and sometimes 3 times a day. I've learned to eat other veggies now though I do occasionally have potatoes.

Hi everyone. I'm new to this group but have been sparking since May. I'm a potato addict (especially mashed potatoes), but also have had a lifelong relationship with white flour and sugar. I notice in my jouranls that I lose more efficiently when I reduce the amount of carbs in ingest during a week. So, I'm here to learn to revamp my eating habits. Looking foward to hearing from you!

It's a choice to be fit or fat.

Snack choices really do depend on what type of low carb program you are following. Cheese, nuts, deviled eggs/boiled eggs, deli rollups, fruit, veggie sticks with peanut butter or cheese or hummus.

Welcome to the group. SP Has lots of answers to that
question.

At the top of this page, just before "Search" Type in
"Low carb, healthy snacks" Lots of stuff comes up

Enjoy.

I just joined this team also

I am thinking along the line of a small piece of fruit & a small piece
of cheese for those afternoon snacks

I joined the group today. Any ideas on low carb healthy snacks for someone that works a desk job would be great. Sweet replacements are a plus! I am young but injured my back and can't handle my intense workouts that I am used to. Adding some weight and inactivity has caused my blood pressure to rise and the doc is advising a low carb diet.
