    Atkins Induction
    Hello lovely Atkinsers!
    Was wondering if I could have some snack ideas for those of us on Induction specifically.
    I keep reading about people having pepperami or pepperoni or chopped up hotdog sausages etc but are these really induction friendly? I'd have thought they had a fair bit of sugar or other hidden carbs?
    Thanks folks :devilangel:

    No, those are fine. You can also have bits of cooked low carb sausage or a boiled egg perhaps. Babybels are quite popular as are pork scratchings.

    Cheese crisps too. Grate some of your allowance on to grease proof paper or microwavable tray, bang in the microwave for 2-3 minutes depending on your micro's strength (just experiment). They taste lovely. I make a big one and just snap it into smaller bits. I also add black pepper sometimes, and sometimes a little spring onion. Videos on youtube of how to make them if you get stuck. They satisfy my need for something cripsy though x

    A lot of people have pork scratchings. I don't really like them myself but they're less than 1g of carbs per bag normally.

    I just had a small bag of scratchings this afternoon, I get them in bags of 12 from the Pound Shop - about 0.3carbs per bag.

    I also leave lots of meat leftovers in the fridge for something to nibble on. Pork belly strips are great for this.

    ahhhhh pork scratchings!! My favourite :) as are baby bels, actually any cheese, just cut a chunk off and munch away! celery with no added sugar peanut butter is yummy too but not for induction. Hartleys no added sugar jellys are great too!

    That's great thanks. I'd rather leave the sauagey snacks alone whilst I'm on induction I think as I'm wary of hidden nasties and also becoming too reliant on them. But the ideas above are really really helpful so thank you.:thankyou:
    Can I have sugar-free jelly at this stage then? :thinking2:

    I had the no added sugar jellies and they did me no harm. They're good for when you get the cravings lol

    Cool. Had quite a few cravings already so I may have to treat myself to a sugar-free jelly over the weekend, particularly once 'the flu' sets in, lol :icecream::sigh2::sad0071:

    Another thing that helped me during the flu was making a hot drink out of chicken or beef stock - I use the Knorr liquid one called Touch of Taste, it's 0.4 carbs per 100ml - don't know why it made me feel better, but I wasn't arguing :D

    Okay, so now I have two ideas for comfort food during 'the flu'- sf jelly 'n' cream and stock drinks (which I'm guessing are a bit bovril-esque).

    I think it is the salt content of the stock drinks that helps with the flu (from what I remember of the science bit in the book) x

    Just very occasionally I do make sense, just the rest of the time my head is all over the place!

    Bought a big bag of bags (if you see what I mean) of pork crunch from Makro yesterday. Info on the side seems to indicate well under 1 gram of carbs per bag but the ingredients say 'rusk' (which the normal scratchings also said) and they look like cereal snacks/crisps...are they deffo ok? I had a bag yesterday and today, so really hoping so or I've b******d up already!
