Favorite Snacks and Drinks

As anyone following SCD knows, making all of our own snacks, meals, baked goods and beverages can be very time consuming and inconvenient. It’s always so nice to find ready-made items in the store that fit the diet.

Here are a few of my favorites (these are all SCD legal):

LARA Bars – 

There are many different flavors. Almost all bars are made of dates, nuts, fruit, cinnamon, and raisins. Stay away from the new chocolate chip bars though – they have sugar!

My favorite flavors are Cashew Cookie, Peanut Butter & Jelly, and Carrot Cake

Honest Tea Moroccan Mint Green Tea 

Moroccan Mint is their one flavor that is sweetened with honey. I really can’t get enough of this tea!

ReBAR Nutritional Bar

These are fruit and vegetable bars that are fat free. They take some getting used to, but I think they taste pretty good. I have only had the original bar, but it looks like they have some new fruit flavors.

Dates and Brazil Nuts or Raisins and  Hazelnuts

Thiss is not a bar or wrapped snack, but it still is convenient. I grab then out of the bulk bins to have on hand. Any dried fruit (make sure no sugar is added) and nuts work, but I like these combinations.

Apples and Peanut Butter with Cinnamon and Raisins –

When I was first starting out on the diet this snack was a staple. Peanut Butter without sugar is fairly easy to find. My local grocery store actually has a peanut butter grinder, so I don’t even have to buy peanut butter with added oil (which most of the jarred kinds have).

Those are my quick snacks. I eat them frequently and find them pretty satisfying when I am hungry. I also use fresh fruit as a quick snack, and sometimes carrots, though those aren’t always as satisfying when I want a movie snack.
