I like snacking on fresh cut fruit, like berries and bananas, and flax seeds. Sprinkle some flax seeds over your fruits…it is quite delicious :)

I like to use nuts and I am not joking I keep them with me when waching tv or on the run
Best wishes

I like to eat a handful of baby carrots and a couple of sticks of string cheese or raw broccoli and cauliflower. Here lately I've been making a grilled cheese sandwich with whole wheat sandwich thins (100 calories and only 20g carbs for 2 slices) and sliced provolone or pepper jack cheese. High protein and/or fiber foods help to keep my numbers balanced through the night and lower fasting numbers in the AM.

Nuts, nuts and nuts! They are low-carb and chock full of good nutrients.
Celery with peanut butter provides crunch and protein. But I only use truly natural PB made of peanuts and salt…like Smucker's Natural. You have to stir it, then refrigerate to prevent separation. I don't even want to eat the Skippy or Jif or Peter Pan anymore…don't like the consistency or flavor. Some fruit too but be careful of the carbs…berries are usually OK. My lunch is often an apple, sliced and slathered with PB…about 33 to 40 grams of carb depending on the size of the apple. A hard boiled egg with seasoned salt is also a good low-carb munchie. I'm getting hungry talking about food and it's nearly lunchtime!
