Question What are your favorite diabetic snack foods?

What are your favorite diabetic snack foods? And how do they taste?

How do you make it??

Well mine is Gomasio without salt, I grind the toasted sesame seed with nutritional yeast flakes in a Ceramic Suribachi (or my very small electric food mill) then I add ground flax seed.

It actually tastes like it has salt in it,
probably by stimulating the same area of the tongue?

My other favorite snack is Yogurt cream cheese, made by draining plain non-fat yogurt over night and adding onion powder. It is tart like sour cream cheese, but without the fat.

Plain Cheerios right out of the box. Beats chips or popcorn. Proplem is, I don't know when to stop.

My husband varies. Triscuits and PB are his favorite before bed snack. Depending on how many carbs he needs, he likes some fruits or vegs. Luckily, neither of us are sugar junkies.

I just got back from shopping and bought a box of Utz pretzel rods. We have a food critic called the Phantom Gourmet. It is really hard to get him to give a good rating on food. But he finds Utz products to be superior to their competitors. He even rated their chips over Lays. They are a fairly new company. Only about less than five years in this area. Utz is getting more shelf than any other product except Wise. I love Wise chips. A lot of them have burnt edges and more flavor.

I also got two candy bars. A Mounds Bar and a large box of Peppermint Junior Mints. I ate the first bar of the Mounds. Should have stopped their and saved the other bar for later. By the time I got the second one down I thought I was going to be sick. Just too much, way to much sugar for me. I am not used to it. The Junior Mints can wait for another day.

I have found that sometimes "Natural" has sugar or corn syrup in it. We have a PB plant that makes Teddie PB located a couple of towns over. On a hot summer day when they let the steam out, you can smell the peanuts roasting. They only make two kinds of PB. One with and one without salt. It is the only PB I will buy. The one with salt. I buy it by the bucket full. My family loves PB cookies.

popcorn or salt free crackers with only a tablespoon of peanut butter per four crackers. people get so hung up on diabetic foods. moderation is the key as it is in most of life. i would rather have two bites of something really good than a bowl full of so called health food. my blood sugars are just fine.
