I love sugar-free Jell-O. Few things beat the flavor per calorie of sf Jello. If you are allowing a bit of dairy in your food, adding even a tiny amount of heavy cream or Reddi Whip is an incredible flavor boost for very little carbs and sugar.
Moving on, two of the easiest slow carb/low carb snacks you can make are Salami Dogs and Poor Man’s Hot and Sour Soup.
Salami. For just plain old snacking, I keep a container of hard salami in the fridge and grab a slice when I am peckish. Grab two and it curbs most hunger pangs.
Salami Dogs: Another use for slices of salami: as “buns” for hot dogs.
- Nuke the hot dog
- Pick it up using a slice or two of salami
- Add mustard
Voila! Your hunger is gone and your SCD/low carb diet is saved! 😉
Poor Man’s Hot and Sour Soup. I combine my slow carb diet with intermittent fasting (IF).
On fasting days, I almost always have some broth as my almost-zero-calorie snack.
- Fill two 16-ounce cups with water
- Split one cube of bouillon between them
- Add a dash of soy sauce
- Add two dashes of Louisiana hot sauce
(For a more Asian twist on this recipe, use Sriracha instead of Louisiana hot sauce.)
Now I have a delicious “Poor Man’s Hot and Sour Soup” which really helps tide me over until I get home and have dinner. It also helps prevent me from short-circuiting my diet by indulging in carbs or breaking my fast. Finally, it helps make sure I am drinking lots of fluids.
All in all, it’s an almost perfect IF/SCD snack!
