Hey, NewB, and I am glad you made it back home today!
One snack, if you aren't induction, that is really low carb and out of this world is homemade chocolate bars! The only thing it has in it that I am not sure about it cocoa powder, but you can buy Hershey's unsweetened at only 1g/T, so the other ingredients I *know* are okay for induction. It's just a matter of what plan you are doing. A little goes a long way, so I usually get by with just a piece when I get choco cravings. Recipe is below (not mine; pulled from coconut oil site and altered):
1-2 T. cocoa powder (approx. 1-2g carbs); 4 T. coconut oil; 1-2 packets of Splenda (1-2g carbs); 1-2 drops vanilla (optional)..................mix all together, nuke for about 15 secs til oil melts. Stir until blended. Pour into a saucer and freeze for 15 mins (I store in freezer bag afterwards). Carb count is the total of whatever you used.
- I love barbecue-flavored pork rinds. Normal (plain) ones are also good if you melt together some butter, Splenda and cinnamon and mix them up with it; this sweet treat is to die for (just start with a mix of 2 T. butter, 1 packet Splenda, and 1/4 t. cinnamon, melted in mirco for about 15-20 secs and stir, then pour/mix into 1-2 servings of the rinds; delish!).
- Take Wyler's sugar-free drink mix and mix 1 pkt (8 c. worth) into 1 c. water. Freeze in popsicle molds.
- Celery and cream cheese is always good. I also really like celery with lemon juice and seasoned salt.
- Beef pepperoni sticks (1g carb) from Costco (about $10/bag for 24 sticks) are fantastic! I love them with their mozzarella string cheese (1g carb) and some slices of pickle (0g carb) or some grape tomatoes (3g carb for 5 of them).
- Pickle roll "sushi": take a dill pickle, schmear with cream cheese, and wrap a piece of lunch meat around it. Cut into slices and it looks like sushi and tastes delish!
- "Just the Cheese" snacks from Amazon; I used to buy these by the case, last time we were heavily into post-induction (great snack for the movie theater, much like a popcorn substitute).
- Sliced grilled chicken strips; great to keep in fridge and dip in ranch (Walden Farms stuff you can get online is 0g carb - wonderful stuff! They have syrup and bunches of other stuff too.)
- Root Beer Float: Diet A&W with 1 T. cream in it omg yum!
- Little smokies sausages
- Vienna sausages (bit carbier than other stuff, but also better if you're on a budget)
- OMG how could I forget "Heroin Wings"?! I sometimes make a batch on Sunday and then just have them to snack throughout the week. kickincarbclutter.blogspot.com/2007/08/her

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.
