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