What do you eat for snacks at home and at the office, or on the road/airports/hotels/vacations abroad.
I had a bad flare scare yesterday and want to create a list for myself of what I should stock. I did some back searching on the forums and came up with this list.
Feel free to add what works for you! Ideally I'll find things that I can easily carry around and is not perishable. Wonder if I can do vegetables this way...
natural peanut butter
sunflower seed butter
tortilla chips are ground corn - whole grain
ginger snack. Japanese store sells them. They are real ginger that are cooked. The gingers are coated with sugar. When I eat them, I remove sugar from the ginger before I eat.
pop chips - never fried - never baked. wow check the ingredients
banana (dip in honey for extra goodness)
V8 Fusion juice... It's made with fruits and vegetables and it tastes surprisingly delicious... *It comes in a variety of flavors... my favorite is the Peach Mango flavor* It's very healthy... It has no artificial preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup.... One whole bottle amounts to one full serving of vegetables and one full serving of fruits... If you drink one bottle, you get in about
600 calories... *There's a light version, too*
Celery with peanut or almond butter
Reduced Fat Wheat Thins.
Almonds - chewed well!!
Glenny's Fruit & Nut Energy Bar (no refined sugar)
Ginger Almond Macapower Bar by Ruth's Hemp Foot (no sugar)
Cereal (that's Gluten Free)
Blue Diamond Nut Thins- Barbeque Flavor (made from rice & almond & gluten free)
Plain potato chips
My "snack" is Ensure Plus and Isopure with powdered vitamins.
