Two graham crackers with a tablespoon of peanut butter
Small bowl (1/2 cup) of cereal with milk and about 15 peanuts or 6 almonds or 1 macadamia nut
8 to 12 taco chips sprinkled with motzarella cheese, zap in the microwave and cover with salsa
1/2 a peanut butter sandwich
What you want is about 15 gm. grain based carbohydrate along with some protein and fat (mono unsaturated fat if possible.)
By reading the nutrition info on carbs (crackers, bread, cereal) you can find out what a 15 gm serving is. Get creative and add some fat and protein and you should be set. Things like salsa, raw veggies like brocolli, radishes, green peppers, celery and cauliflower can be added for free. Fat veggies(like olives and avocado) and nuts do contain calories but they slowly affect blood sugar and are good for your HDL.
My snacks range from cheese and crackers to a baby scoop of real icecream on a cone, to a salad with croutons or garlic toast made with olive oil. No rules, just good numbers. Hope this helps.
