Probably best to make it yourself in a dehydrator or oven, I wouldn't buy anything in a package and any additive-free versions are likely to be really expensive

Tanka bars are awesome, a bit expensive unfortunately. They're actually made from buffalo, not beef.

MDA has a good writeup on soy: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/soy-scrutiny/#axzz23Y41llqL. Edamame is a fine snack, I'd say, but I wouldn't overindulge. I still enjoy eating it from time to time.

I'm yet to find a source of beef jerky that I feel completely comfortable with in terms of ingredients and taste. And making my own tends to take too long. What brand of beef jerky would you recommend?

I love olives too! Especially garlic-stuffed olives. I'll have to check on the soybean oil, though. I hadn't considered that.

Pack your own. Stuff at the olive bar is often packed in soybean oil. Beware

Soy is a bad idea. Phytates that don't break down w/o fermentation and estrogen like substances.

All good answers - another of my favorites - olives. I buy the good ones at the olive bar and 3-4 seem to satisfy me when I have a salty craving

Another salty snack - kale chips - yum!

Cut up veggies, jerky, apples, avocado, berries, leftovers.

If it's real food, it's snackable food.

Can't believe nobody has suggested pork cracklings or beef jerkey yet! This is a paleo forum! :p.

Also bone broth fills me up for hours and I have learned to find it delicious. Plus its absolutely packed with nutrients.

Coconut flakes mixed with organic chocolate powder. Eat like this or dunk a banana in it. Yum.

Coconuts. I cut one up at the start of each week and pack bits of it up for a nice snack.

Dried fruit is good if you use your own dehydrator and don't pack too many of them (to keep you from overindulging).

Small carrots are good. I saw a friend of mine eating an unpeeled carrot and was amazed that I had been wasting time peeling them. I actually like the taste of the peel if it's a small carrot. Celery is good if you like the flavor--I don't personally, but I do take it occasionally.

Cabbage works as a snack for me. I cut up a bag-full and just eat it dry throughout the day. I find it stays crisp better than spinach or other leafy greens.

And then of course there's dark chocolate.

Avocado w/ sea salt, cumin and onion powder and/or raw diced onion. Avocados all the way, seriously.

How about tiger nuts, which are not really nuts but tubers! And these yummy nutrient-dense, paleo-certified tubers taste like coconuts. Let’s repeat that. They’re called nuts but are actually tubers that taste like a fruit! It’s one snack conundrum that you’d definitely want to try. You won’t be sorry if you do! Get them now at tgernutsusa dot com and at other fine health stores across the USA.
