Eat them in any form you like. I stopped buying pitted olives because I ate too many at a time. I found that eating marinated whole olives slowed down my snacking because it takes a little longer when you have to munch around the seed. I buy them cheap in large bottles and add chopped hot chili, onion and herbs to my own liking to the bottle to flavour them.
Check labels for carb content or make your own. Use low-carb crackers or vege strips as dippers.
Try guacamole, hommus and similar.
I slice an avocado in half, twist so that I have a free portion and a seed portion, put the seed half in the fridge for ‘Ron (later on:-), sprinkle a little salt and maybe a squirt of lime-juice on the other half and eat it direct from the shell with a teaspoon. If it’s a big one I may get four serves out of one. Another option is to spread avocado on a cracker.
Half and quarter portions of fruit.
A quarter or half portion of an apple or orange or pear or similar can fill that gap without leading to a BG spike, the leftovers become another snack later in the day.
Left-over salad from an earlier meal.
Makes another good ‘tween meal snack, dressed with a lttle balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil.

Nothing better than an avocado
(not a whole one).
I will wrap philly (store brands tend to have more carbs than Philadelphia Brand)cream cheese on a slice of deli meat and roll it up. Yum. You can also add a raw veggie to this like the green stalk of a green onion or maybe a slice of bell pepper. Whatever you like that fits.
You can even do the same thing with a cheese stick.
thanx for this wonderful list.... :)
What a wonderful List! Really enjoyed reading through it! And all the GREAT posts!
Thanks for putting it up~
Bacon Jerky is one of my favorite snacks. No carbs and it's bacon!
im gonna try that when i get back to the states.
ive never had jerky, the look of it scares me. but put the Word "bacon" in front of a food and it sounds good!
I felt the same way. I used to eat Slim Jims as a kid and I had one a few years ago - disgusting. I kept getting tempted to try Beef Jerky since I love steak and it has no carbs, but the Slim Jim sat in my mind. I found the bacon jerky and figured I'd try it. Basically it tastes like cold bacon. Its chewy and very tasty. If you like bacon, you wont be disappointed. I've been eating the Oberto brand as it has minimal ingredients and is all natural.
cocoa nibs with raw stevia and 3-4 blueberries is one of my favs as well as monterey jack cheese and olives, walnuts.. the list goes on!
What do the cocoa nibs taste like? I've been tempted, but wasn't sure if I'd like them.
Hi Stavs, sorry for the late reply- I'm just reading this. They are delicious- they taste like chocolate without the sugar. You can get big blocks of cocoa also and melt it or shred it in some way to make yummy stuff and add to things for flavor.
