I need to find some suitable for phase 1 snacks that i can take to work with me, i dont have access to a microwave or oven-we do have a fridge though.
It needs to be something easy to grab as sometimes its just eaten on the run!

No eggs either, i have them for breakfast and sometimes lunch!

Weight Watchers yoghurt - 70-100 cal depending on size

Weight Watchers ice cream - 90-180 cal depending on type

2% skim milk mozerella sticks - 50cal ea

Atkins Endulge Candy Bars 140-170 cal - limit one a day, I stay to every other day.- I used these on ph 1

Peanut Butter - Low fat or low carb. I prefer the low carb taste, very low on sugar. Eat it right out of the jar or with celery sticks. 1-2 TBS.

2 slices of lean deli meat wrapped around a smidgen of low fat cream cheese. Roll them up at home. And place 2 in snack size ziploc. *When I am home I eat these for breakfast..use low fat cheddar or mozerella, Nuke for about 30 secs, top with lots of homemade chunky salsa (no sugar, no fat).

Donna - I really doubt the Atkins candy bars and the ice cream are acceptable for phase 1 South Beach. The yogurt depends on the ingredients. I use fat free plain in phase 1.

roasted chick peas are some of my favorites.

Any kind of veggie cut up in a bag is great to stash in the fridge.

single 4 oz. servings of lf cottage cheese and yogurt are good to keep on hand.

hummus is a good dip for veggies -- I've seen single serving sizes at Target....just forgo the pretzels that come with it.

almonds, cashews, etc.

lf or reduced fat cheese - 2% mozzarella string cheese is good and easily portable.

If you have access to a fridge, most things can be assembled in the morning and brought with you. Small salads -- bean salads, chicken salads, etc. would be easy and you wouldn't have to heat it.

Unless you are wanting to go entirely pre-prepared food, it just requires a little planning ahead.

They aren't.

I'm not sure she is strict about following SBD.....I sense a mixture of a few different diets. :)

The yogurt also isn't sbd p1 friendly. Most has fruit and too many calories/sugar.

I used to hate ff plain yogurt. I love it now. I mix it with tons of things or just leave it plain. Nice and tangy. Plain ff greek yogurt is also yummy.

Yeah.. all of the above are great ideas. I like the deli ham rolled around cream cheese and whatever else. I may try the deli ham with cheddar for breakfast soon :)
you could to the baked pieces of cheese: slice cheese.. oven I believe 350? Its in a thread... and bake for a few mins each side. I highly recommend flipping them. It gets them a little crunchier.. and the roasted beans..yummy!!! I did 2 flavors..sweet(cinnamon, splenda, nutmeg) and then the reg. chili powder, garlic powder, salt.. and on the sweet I used canola oil and on the other I used EVOO.. They turned out yummy!! I'll be having some with dinner shortly :D

I get home early from my job at a school famished. We eat at 10:30. lately I have been rolling cream cheese in turkey. It carries me right on through until dinner.:cool:
