We go out to a lot of social events and I worry there will not be anything for me to eat at, for example, a cocktail party. Especially if it's just appetizers...think chips and salsa, spinach dip / hummus w pita chips. Etc

Is this a question about what to put on a shopping list, what to buy for snacks at home, or what snacks to look for at cocktail parties? I'm confused.

I don't snack. I'm trying to lose weight, and it's counterproductive. Snacking also screwed up my ability to tell when I was genuinely hungry, and now that I've stopped snacking that has returned. So I'm no help on the snacking front, beyond suggesting the obvious: pre-cut vegetables, pre-cooked meat, canned fish, hard-boiled eggs, nuts, fruit, avocadoes.

If I'm invited to a gathering that does not include a sit-down meal (like a cocktail party), I eat before I go. Just because there's food at an event doesn't mean I have to eat it, but it's easier to refuse it if I'm not hungry in the first place. And usually there is at least a fruit, cheese, or veggie platter I can take a little bit from (or maybe some shrimp if I'm lucky), and as long as I'm standing around with some food on a plate nobody tries to get me to eat anything else.

Pork rinds (fried in lard, not vegetable oil) do a good job of mimicking chips. You can dip them in salsa. If you do dairy, you can make homemade french onion dip with full fat sour cream. Pork rinds are not always socially acceptable though, depending on the crowd.

Sliced vegetables (carrots, celery, cucumber, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, etc.)

Beef jerky
