** My Low Carb Blog - http://www.atkinsdietgeek.com **
My two limits for this video:
* Focus on Savory Items as Sweet Items (been detailed elsewhere as desserts)
* I am intentionally going to not mention ready made products since I have already mentioned my general distrust of commercial products, so while one could go to Netrition or Amazon and find lots of products for snack time like Dixie Diner or Flax-Z Snax, there are issues with it. One of them was highlighted recently with problems over the carb counts of those same Flax Z Snax (http://bit.ly/bG8O67 -or- http://www.carbsmart.com/lowcarbsucce...)
It just highlights that your health is not always the highest concern of those making the snack item. It generally is their bottom line, so while those after Induction can evaluate their use, my general philosophy is to pick the least commercial or least diet choice as they typically are the most honest.

Here were my ideas for snacks. (the Induction Friendly ideas)
* Hard boiled eggs or Deviled eggs
* Cheese slices
* Beef sticks - find one without corn syrup
* Sugar Free Gelatin
* Pepperoni "chips" -- Zap the slices in the microwave
* Lettuce Roll-ups --- Roll luncheon meat, egg salad, tuna or other filling and veggies in lettuce leaves
* Lunch Meat Roll-ups --- Roll cheese or veggies in lunch meat (read the labels for carbs on the lunch meat)
* Raw veggies and ranch or sour cream
* Pork rinds, with or without dip
* Flax crackers or cookies
* Buffalo Chicken Dip
* Mock Danishes - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQ4LE2...
* Cheddar / Parmesan Crisps - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybtTdK...
* Fried Mozzarela pizza- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybtTdK...
* Flax Bread- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX7wrT...
* Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oclOeH...

OWL Ideas: (Latter phases of the Diet - many of the old options are possible as well, such as fruit)
* Nuts (preportion if necessary)
* Sunflower seeds or other seeds like Pumpkin
* Low Carb Granola
* Whey Protein Shakes - check out About Time video
* Greek or Sugar Free Yogurt
* Strawberries and Cream Cheese
