Paleo snacks when on the move?

Answered on September 29, 2014

Hi, When i go to school its hard to get a good paleo meal. Everything is mostly carbs. I was thinking of taking a carton of eggs, but is there some more portable healthier snack? I like beef, but beef jerky is high in salt? And also im lactose intolerant so cheese wouldnt work ( unless it has no lactose).

I carried some nuts today in case i crashed, cos i didnt eat any starch or carbs much in the morn. I guess i like the fatty nuts, but somehow i can pop heaps of nuts and dont get full, so its almost like i could eat just pieces of meat as a snack if somehow it was portable. Oh wow salmon jerky, sounds like a nice idea thanks :) mmm nut butter

How did I not know that Salmon jerky exists?!! And yes, I capitalized Salmon. Off to amazon to search for it now...

Actually it doesn't taste like seaweed at all. It doesn't have that ocean flavor and it's not as chewy.

You could also make the mixture and roll them into balls instead of bars- the bars seem to fall apart on me if I don't keep them cold.

Yeah! It's tough without a food processor; I was able to find one online for about $40 and it gets the job done. Sometimes I make bars with a few dates, some almond butter, a bunch of coconut, some melted coconut oil, and some dried berries or whatever's laying around.

No problem, I just figured I'd throw a few of them out there that had a lot of responses. My go-tos are really hard boiled eggs and bacon or my own trail mix/granola bars or lunch meat rolls.

Sounds good. I had packs of seaweed before, it probably tastes similar :)

I always carry fruit and nuts with me. You can find all kinds of dried fruit, as well, but can usually find an apple, orange, banana in most settings. (Dried fruit sometimes has a higher sugar concentration, but seems to be okay given a clean diet). You can find one-serving packets of almond butter in some groceries, and other nut butters as well. (Whole Foods). For protein, salmon jerky is a nice variation (gotta find ones that are smoked/made without brown sugar though).

I've been making Kale chips, they're easy to make and you can flavor them any way you'd like! Wash and thoroughly dry a bunch of kale (any kind will do). Preheat your oven to 300, add some olive oil (or whatever oil you prefer) and season to taste. Bake for 15 min, stir and flip the kale, then check every 5 min after that (they will burn in an instant so keep an eye on them). Be careful about adding salt, the first few times I made them they were WAY too salty, I would recommend adding salt as soon as they are done cooking, while they're still hot. I like to flavor mine with fresh rosemary, thyme, lemon zest, or curry powder.

If you are a well-to-do student, you may want to try You Bars (youbars.com); they are pricey but I like that you can adjust quantities of dates and other sugary stuff. I ordered some a few months ago, and I'd recommend requesting "extra" nuts, fruits, pretty much everything- my bars were kinda sparse on goodies. Larabars can be great in a pinch, but too sugary for me to have on a regular basis. Boiled eggs are great of course, and I sometimes bring a baggy of room-temp cooked bacon- tastiest snack ever!

Perhaps the most nutrient-dense and convenient paleo-pefect snack you’ll find on the market is a bag of tiger nuts. They’re a low GI carb, with plenty of fiber to keep you satiated for hours! Tiger nuts are dairy- and lactose-free, but guess what, they also have plenty of calcium. Really good for those with dairy allergy and lactose intolerance, the very people who need an alternative source of calcium that will not give them the runs or brain fog. And since tiger nuts have the perfect calcium-magnesium ratio then that means your body will be able to utilize this bone-building and heart-friendly nutrient well!

You can eat tiger nuts alone, or add them to meals to get a healthy source of paleo-approved carb come lunch time. Because the truth is that our paleolithic ancestors ate plenty of tiger nuts to meet their nutritional needs! The New York Times and FOX News actually featured more recent research on the caveman diet, which, according to Oxford University experts, largely consisted of tiger nuts.

 

So carb is okay, as long as it’s tiger nuts! Get yours today at tigernutsusa dot com and at other fine health stores across the United States.
