There are two paths you can go by, but in the longrun....There's still time to change the road you're on
Wow! That sounds like life around here! Do dates count as pitted fruit? (My son is allergic to peaches, etc, but can have dates?) If so, you can make a great treat with dates as the base, or you can substitute mashed banana. Cook some dates (or mash some bananas) and then add stuff like dried fruit, dried coconut, sesame seeds (unless those count as nuts?) etc, until the mixture is quite thick. (I also add soy protein powder) Then, form it into balls or press it into a pan and refigerate. It's a yummy treat, and healthy... Not particularly low carb, but not overly high... Not sure if that helps... I'll keep looking!

Are you allowed applesauce? I reg. use the applesauce cups (unsweetened) but I don't count carbs so to speak. So I'm not sure about the amount of carbs--I do know that 1 unsweetened applesauce cup from Motts is 2 pts on the weight watchers diet as I used to be with them.
How about small savoury meatballs (do not add rusk/crumbs/oats), rather add egg and herbs for taste, and grill in oven. (serve cold/room temp) with that, cut fingers of celery/pepepers/carrots etc and for a nice colour some radishes. Play with Fruit and Veg in small cubes / fingers and display on a plate. Everyone can then take what they want, and you cover a whole range of non-s.
The challenge: Bring a snack to work for Monday morning coffee break. The food must fit the following:
No nuts No gluten Generally healthy No raw apples No fruit with pits (cherries, peaches, etc) No dairy No chocolate Low carb Vegetarian
As I am regularly unable to eat other people's foods, I have a soft spot for dietary restrictions and I would love to find something I can bring that everyone can eat (now whether they choose to or not is a different issue). I know bringing different things is a possibillity but Id rather just find one thing.
The only thing I have come up with so far is celery sticks with dairy free cream cheese and a few craisins on top.
