I still eat dairy but in limited amounts :) You'll see that there are quite a few people on PH that do as well.

Look for one that uses grass fed beef/no sugar or preservatives. You can find this through a quick google search.

Is any jerkey okay? For Paleo friendly, i always have trouble figuring out for the beef jerkey which is better- of course nitrate free but not sure where to find those.

Yeah I have had those- but not sure I can do that every day as a snack- even though it's fruits and nuts , it's a bit too sweet and I'd rather have something else :-) Thank you for the post!

Well I'm talking about snacks for when I travel for work and I'm on the road and what would be ideal for when i do get hungry- as airport food isn't always the healthiest. I typically do 3 meals a day and then 2 (1) block snacks to ensure i'm getting enough calories in the day.

All great ideas- I usually have the shredded coconut, lara bars, almonds, and brazilian nuts and been wanting a little more variety... Isn't the cheese not Paleo though since it's a dairy?

Yeah if you are traveling for 8+ hours with kids, obviously you need to have meals with you. Are we talking about on the go meals? or snacks? I'm confused....

Sometimes on the go means traveling 8+ hours in the car with the family (including small kids). Fasting is not alway san option, having on the go options highly increases your chances of success and health.

Don't forget those with hypoglycemia! That is certainly NOT pleasant sometimes trying to go for 5 hours between meals. Mine is getting better with low carb and higher fat intake, but blanket statements aren't helpful to those with particular issues.

Yeah your situation is definitely different than mine, I am a 57 year old woman, hypothyroid, I've had 4 kids, need to lose about 25 pounds! If I get hungry while I'm out and about (very rare for this to happen!) I don't feel like I'm gonna die if I don't get something in my stomach right away; I'm all not shaky or anything like that. The hunger goes away on it's own after awhile.

I also think it depends on what you're doing, everyone is different. I'm on a gaining path, lift heavy things + CF and take in around 3-3500k calories a day. I eat big but I'm also out and about town and if I get hungry? I gotta eat and I gotta eat now. I burn through my food quickly so it's always a challenge. I'd rather have *my* food stashed somewhere on me then have to buy something that won't satisfy or I won't feel awesome after eating, ya know? For me meals + snacks = I get big and strong :)

Here's a link to a portable protein thread that has good suggestions to check out. I have a few options that I like posted in there, included them below for ya, too :) I also try to always have on-hand in a small container dark chocolate, coconut flakes, and almonds/mac nuts:

Chunks of parmesan or cheddar; Almonds; Hard boiled egg; Banana; I'll roll or fold slices of ham or roast beef; Cubes of steak or chicken breast. Have spork and chopsticks, will travel! If it's not too hot I'll make little meatballs, seriously maybe an inch big, out of turkey or beef, bake them, then keep in a container for grabbing; Berries; Avocado that I've cut in half, left in the skin, scored horizontally and then vertically, so there are easy cubed bites to pick at.

Orthodox Paleo: Chunks of roast meat in a small pyrex container. Kippered herrings or sardines (don't bust this out in your car pool, though, unless you already found a new ride). Homemade pemmican.

Reform Paleo: Uncured ham slices smeared with brie, rolled and carried in baggie. Commercial jerky. Salami.

Liberal Paleo: Chicken salad. Yogurt. Cold pizza. (Okay, that last one may be ex-paleo.)

Who needs snacks? If you eat enough protein and good fats,you should be able to go AT LEAST 4-5 hours without eating again. I eat twice a day, usually around 10am and again in the late afternoon, with a 16-18 hour fast overnight....never need to snack! But on the other hand, if you are talking about a MEAL that you can take with you, I like any cold leftover meat or fish, wrapped in Romaine leaves, raw veggies of any kind, hard boiled eggs, nuts. I pretty much stay totally away from manufactured "bars" whether Paleo or not. They just don't seem like real food to me! And water is the best Paleo beverage!

New the to Forum, but have been lurking for some time. What a great community of folks looking to better themselves.

As for great snacks check out this Kickstarter, full disclosure, it's my wife's company so I am a bit biased. But, darn is it good stuff.

@Methodician

Wanted to post my dairy based snacks in this thread so others may benefit from it. Based on your profile, I see you are trying to gain weight, so I will add the higher calorie versions below. You can always go for lower fat as needed. Both of these are excellent 5 minute breakfast items or pre / post workout items (assuming you are ok with dairy of course). Each of these pack a lot of protein and are easy to transport, can last about 5 hours outside a fridge in a sealed container and deliver all the macros needed for a small meal / snack.

  • 1 cup 2% cottage cheese + 1 peach (you can use peaches, pineapple, whatever)
  • 1 cup 2% cottage cheese + sauteed tomatoes + Balsamic vinagarette + pepper
  • 1 cup Fage Greek Yogurt + favorite berries + heavy whipping cream.
    • I use a bit of heavy whipping cream when I use non fat greek yogurt, but you honestly do not really need it. I eat this with berries intact, or whip it all up together for flavored yogurt. Blackberries go VERY well with this too. My favorites are strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or a mix and match of each.
