Wow, thats a nice list with many choices that might even taste good :-) I will have to add those to my grocery list next time I go.
Peanut butter spikes me up, even though I am OK with Peanuts, and when I have some peanut butter it is the light kind. Weird...
Not a snack, but a good meal food: LASAGNA. This hits very slow, and is filling; I can use the dual wave on my pump and bolus half up front, half over about an hour. It's all the cheese I guess ^^ mmmmm cheese...
I ate a bunch of celery with peanut butter, and it didn't spike me, but kept me around 140-150 for hours. Not good! Hummus also pushes me up.
A food you didn't include was sauerkraut, which I like a lot. Our grocery also sells jicama sticks -- I don't know how low carb they are because they're sweet, but they have a high water content, and also fiber, so I'm guessing they're not so bad.
I also like plain tofu with soy sauce and bonito shavings, which I learned to eat in Japan. You can also put tofu in broth, although I prefer miso, which is fermented soy paste.
I'm glad to hear other people's ideas -- it will be a lot of help! :-)
Avocado with parma ham or prawns
Ajvar (A red pepper relish popular throughout what used to be Yugoslavia).
Guacamole (though I try to avoid this because it makes me crave nachos)
I prowl my local Korean and Chinese stores for weird and wonderful seaweed snacks that come closest to the mouth feel of potato chips.
I also went through a phase when I was addicted to Szechuan-style cucumber salad. These are cut-up cucumbers doused with Szechuan peppercorns, garlic, chilli, vinegar and a little sesame oil. They are vegan, low-carb, low-salt, low-fat and taste incredible!
