Can anyone tell me what is a good snack food. Sometimes I get the craving for some junk foods and I don't want to go to far off. I sure would like to have some ice cream and chips. Just don't know what to pick.

I eat what I like. My sugar isalways low. I don't eat enough sugar. My favorite is popcorn & ice cream. You can get on sugar added ice creams and they are good depend on the brand and flavors. Give them a try.Keep us posted.

that 5 net carb Breyer ice cream bar is pretty good, so are the sugar free puddings, pork rinds are okay, almonds, if you are good at maintaining control you can try a 15 carb snack of regular stuff but its not much.

I feel silly counting jelly belly beans or individual chips out of the pringles can but sometimes it feels better them celery and peanut butter.

There are several ice creams on the market made with
splenda. Pillsbury has low sugar cake and brownie mixes.
I have bar recipes useing the low sugar cake mixes. I plan on sharing on this site. I don't know of any chips. I miss those

My favorite is Lays chips too, but I don't eat them anymore I do miss them. But I had to give up all the wrong foods, if I wanted to take better care of myself and keep my blood sugar down too. I like snacking on fresh fruit, canned sugar free fruits, veggies, wheat crackers, sugar free puddings and jellos and plenty of water. Its hard but we got to do it, their is sugar free candies too that taste pretty good.

Thank you, I keep forgetting about thr sugar free puddings. You know the holidays are going to be so hard, everything that they show on the tv is so tempting, but I will try my best not to stray away.
