Microwaving a smallish Jacket Potato - about 120g (roughly 4 1/2 oz) - cut it in half and scoop the flesh out - break it up a little and adding about a dessert-spoon of flavoured tuna and about the same amount of cottage cheese. Mix it together and replace in the jacket. They are yummy and very filling, a great source of protein, and with the potato having gone cold has a much lower GI than a hot potato (makes it more filling when cold.) You can have 2-3 made up in the fridge ready to go.
A hard boiled egg is also another really good one which helps keep the hunger pangs at bay. If your calories allow, wrap a piece of high fibre bread around it to make more filling, or cut the egg in 1/2 and have one lot in the a.m. and the other p.m.
Make sure that you stay clear of processed snacks - they lead to the yo-yo effect with the blood sugars.
I have a couple or three questions for YOU, tho! Why do your blood sugars drop? Are you eating your meals regularly? and are you starting the day with a good breakfast or just a rushed easy breakfast (or nothing??) Do you use the Nutrition Tracker to see if your carbs/fats/protein are in a healthy range? - the pie charts on the Daily Report will easily show you what your % of them is. It MAY be that you need to adjust them. Healthy fats and protein help with satiety - BUT fat is a lot higher calories than protein so if the fat is a wee bit too high, increase the protein and decrease the fats/carbs a little.
