I love those 100 calorie packs of microwave kettle corn. They are so good and about 20 carbs, which isn’t that bad for kettle corn.
And I have to second the celery with peanut butter. That is my absolute favorite food, but you have to be careful about it because peanut butter is soo so fattening.
Hi Richard… Thanks for the list – I’m printing it out and putting it on the side of my fridge – Not only are carbs & fat a concern but also salt … We don’t salt anything, and use no salt margarine but I still find it hard to stay under the recommended 2400 mg daily maximum intake so I must watch the salt content also. Have a great day! Gail L
So many items in this list are high in sodium. That’s another important thing to watch, along with carbs.
The recommended sodium intake for PWDs with high blood pressure (anything over 130/80 mmHG) is only 1,500 mg/day. 2,400 mg/day is for people without high blood pressure. Most American adults consume a whopping 4,000-6,000 mg/day.
True, not many people successfully match the lower target, but any reduction in sodium is good (lower blood pressure, reduce risk of blood vessel complications, protect your heart, eyes, kidneys)
My vote goes to 2% Greek yogurt, 8 grams carb per 7 oz., 65 mg sodium.
Unfortunately all, pork rinds are high fat. They are pig skins FRIED in oil!!! I don’t think I care to add that to my diet regularly because, even if they don’t have effects, they sure do add to the fat in the diet.
I find plain nonfat yogurt disgusting. But, add thawed frozen fruit, vanilla to taste, and cinnamon. Oh, and Splenda or something like that. YUM! I used to buy the 32oz. container and make a whole bunch at one time.
