You know what I am talking about. 3:00 pm rolls around and you know you just had lunch and dinner will be made when you get home, but your tummy is just bugging you. How do you snack without blowing your daily carb count out of the water?
A hand full of nuts is good, but can get boring if you do this snacking daily.
Maybe a cheese stick or a hand full of berries.
Here are some different ideas of some snacks that can stave off the hunger and not raise the glucose. https://diatribe.org/afternoon?utm_source=dia...
I will post my favorite recipe here from her list:
Cheater Deviled Eggs
Makes 6 servings
Total carbohydrates: less than 1 gram per serving
Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
If true deviled eggs were a practical snack, I would eat them every day. But they don’t actually keep well enough to be a go-to, and they’re too fiddly to make fresh daily. These, however, are entirely practical, and I do eat one most days. The idea is that you hard-boil some eggs (perfectly) and whisk up some deviled-egg-style dressing, and then you keep both in the fridge. Come snack time, you simply cut open an egg and top each half with a spoonful of dressing (you can also pack some up this way to take to work or school). So delicious and satisfying that you will almost not notice that you cheated. (The eggs shown here are made with curry powder and yellow mustard, which is one of my favorite combinations of add-ins.)
¼ cup Hellman’s or Best Foods real mayonnaise
½ teaspoon kosher salt—or more to taste
1 teaspoon white vinegar
6 Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs (see below)
½ teaspoon curry powder, celery seed, or smoked paprika
1 teaspoon hot sauce, horseradish, or yellow, Dijon, or grainy mustard
1 tablespoon capers or finely chopped dill pickles or pickled jalapenos
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill, celery leaves, or parsley, or snipped chives
I vote to add in some curry powder and top it with some cilantro. YUM
