We all have them … those "go to" snacks when we're really craving something sweet or salty; or the substitutes we use when we want pasta or a crusty piece of bread. I thought it would be fun to share our tried and true tips and tricks that don't compromise our BS or A1C progress.
My sweet treats: Berries, an apple with almond butter, Caramel nut roll Atkins bar (on occasion), SF jello, SF Jello Pudding, SF Ice Pops.
My Salty Treats: Roasted peanuts, pickles, pork rinds, pickles wrapped in salami, smoked salmon with capers and red onion (and yum, sometimes I put that on a toasted Smart Pocket with some cream cheese, and I don't even miss the bagel!)
My crunchy snacks: Carrots (in moderation), radishes, pickles, pork rinds
My Bread & Pasta substitutes: Toufayan Smart Pockets (11 net grams carbs, 5 protein) - toasted for sandwiches or topped with crushed tomatoes, mozz, etc. for pizza; Zucchini spiral "noodles" topped with crushed/diced tomatoes or low sugar marinara.
Ok, let's hear 'em!
