I don't like sweet snacks in the afternoon either. Below are some of my favorites:

Air-popped popcorn (2c, I just sprinkle mine with salt) and a hard-boiled egg (80). 141 calories, 13g carb, 5g fat, 8g protein, 2g fiber

1 oz of almonds (technically 163 calories, but easy to keep around, and definitely take the edge off the hungries).

Egg salad in a pepper half: 1 egg yolk mashed with 1 T avocado oil mayo plus some yellow mustard (55+45), then mixed with 2 h.b. egg whites (35), and scooped into half a bell pepper (25) = 160 calories, 7g carb, 9g fat, 11g protein, 1g fiber

Fat-free refried beans (1/3c) topped with low-fat sharp cheddar cheese (1/2 oz), plus cucumber slices - 124 calories, 15g carbs, 3g fat, 8g protein, 5g fiber

Salami roll-ups: 2 slices of salami (3.125" dia x 1/16" thick) spread with 0.5oz (0.5 T per slice) Neufchatel cheese (low-fat cream cheese). Sprinkle with shredded carrot (0.25c total) and cucumber matchsticks (Start with 1/2 a cucumber, put what fits, eat the rest on the side) - 151 calories, 8g carb, 10g fat, 7g protein, 2g fiber

Totally agree with SLIMMERKIWI
I would look at the meal you are eating earlier in the day to determine if that is contributing to your crash later on.

Too many simple carbs/sugars/starches can definitely lead to a crash. More whole fat and protein can sustain you for much longer.

For me, personally, I found I had to give up caffeine to not be exhausted at 2pm. My daily cup of green tea has become my daily cup of herbal tea.

I practice intermittent fasting and keto

Pretty much agreeing with Kris.

I use the 100-calorie nut packs for portion control. Nuts are often recommended for dieting for their nutrition, but with the warning that they're easy to overeat. (I also will pick up a handful of nuts at the bulk grocery bin.)

Apart from the previous poster's suggestions, I suggest that you take a look at WHY you are crashing at that time. Often it is because of:
a) Insufficient, balanced nutrition earlier in the day

b) having done a lot of exercise and not enough food to sustain it.

c) having cut (healthy) carbs, protein or fat too much.

Kris

You'll have to modify suggestions depending on what you have available as a refrigerator or cooler, and if you have a good thermos or an available microwave, but some ideas to get you started:

100g of extra lean ham slices with 60g of pickled asparagus spears
30g of sharp cheddar cheese with 60g of baby dill pickles
2 large hard-boiled eggs
100g each of celery sticks and baby carrots with 125g of non-fat plain Greek yogurt mixed with dehydrated onions and dried dill as a dip (or about 80g of full-fat plain Greek yogurt)
a small serving of stirfry, soup, or stew
a small spinach salad including a mix of different vegetables, some nuts, some cheese, and topped with olive oil / balsamic vinegar
25g or so of nuts or seeds (or a mix --- even homemade trail mix)
100g of full fat creamed cottage cheese, with either mixed with veggies or with some on the side
a mixed egg / cheese / veggie "muffin"
3 cups of air-popped popcorn topped with a bit of butter
zucchini or other squash "boat" filled with a mix of chopped veggies and some meat, then baked with cheese on top
"zoodles" --- some mix of spiralized veggies cooked with 60g or so of meat and topped with a flavourful oil or cheese-based sauce
Tuna or salmon "salad" (mix it with some plain Greek yogurt, diced pickled vegetables, dehydrated onion, dill weed, garlic, etc.) either in a lettuce wrap or use it to "fill" some celery stalks / cucumber "boats" / or baked peppers or tomatoes or mushrooms

Realistically, many savoury ideas for snacks are going to be smaller versions of your meals --- which does make it easier to use up leftovers!

Can you give me some ideas for savory snacks (nothing sweet) for 3-4 pm - the time I crash?
