No Sugar Snacking!

No Sugar Snacking:

Happy holidays everyone! I was recently asked for some no or low sugar snacks to eat throughout the day. As you know, I’m against snacking with high sugar foods that can put you on a blood-sugar rollercoaster throughout the rest of the day. Most power bars are loaded with sugar and should be avoided entirely.

Here are a few of the things I snack on throughout the day:

  • A supersized (up to 2,000 calorie!) Ample meal smoothie
  • Pork rinds and guacamole/hummus
  • Home made trail mix (low sugar)
    • Use a dark chocolate with no sugar (i.e. Lindt or Hu), cashews, almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, etc.
  • Dark chocolate (85% or darker) with no sugar added
  • Hu crackers + a Hummus that doesn’t use Canola Oil (i.e. the Hope brand)
    • Hu Crackers have carbs but I’ve tested them with my continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and noted no blood sugar spike!
  • Fat Bombs!

Another good resource would be The Food Babe’s instagram page, which shares many healthy swaps such as those found below.

Personally, I don’t consume either the left or right columns, but could see the right column as being a “cheat meal” to many. I view the items listed on the right as being “never” items.
