I went to my dietician to find out what snacks I could eat, as a hypoglycemic, that are good for me, will keep my blood sugar even, and keep me full.
She really emphasized balancing carbs, protein, and fat in my snacks, so you’ll see that below. I had asked specifically for very portable snacks since I travel a lot.
Note: She had originally gave me 200 calorie snacks, but I was still hungry two hours later, so these are all around 230 to 240 calories. You may need to adjust up or down depending on your activity level (I burn 1,400 calories just resting each day).
- 1 graham cracker with 1 Tbsp peanut or another nut butter (I recommend Justin’s Peanut Butter)
- This yogurt parfait recipe
- 1 individual container of Fage 0% plain yogurt with a little oatmeal and shaved almonds mixed-in
- Mary’s Gone Crackers and either peanut butter or 2 Babybel Lite mini cheeses. I was eating Triscuits because I LOVE THEM, but they didn’t keep me satisfied.
- Kashi crackers and either peanut butter or2 Babybel Lite mini cheeses
- Beanitos chips (I like the restaurant style white ones) and guacamole
- Turkey jerky from Trader Joes (better than most jerky because no msg, minimal processing) and either fruit or crackers
- Pure Protein shakes (and a couple of crackers)
- Strong and Kind Bars (the Kind plus protein was her original recommendation, but it wasn’t enough calories)
- Dry roasted edamame (or fresh if you have access to a microwave) and fruit or crackers
- Roasted chick peas
- Toast with peanut butter
