With your higher allowed carbs you have a lot of options for snacks. I'm brain storming a list of my own faves:
Portable Snack Suggestions:
Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt Smoothies
Nuts in a baggie - peanuts, walnuts, almonds, mixed nuts, macadamias
Boiled eggs (or deviled eggs sandwiched together to keep them tidy)
EAS Advantedge Shakes (watch out - they have regular and low carb shakes)
South Beach Meal Bars (about 3 net carbs if you can do sugar alcohols)
Bags of cut up veggies (celery, bell pepper strips, a few baby carrots, wedge of crunchy lettuce or cabbage, few cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower... any low enough in carbs for your particular plan)
Leftover pieces of meat cut into bites - chicken, that steak you carried out in a doggie bag
Premade salad bowls - they have them at walmart where I go in the produce, some are lower carb than others, but you should be able to afford most of them carb wise
Tuna salad and lettuce leaf to wrap it in or veggies to dip in it
Leftover chicken leg!
Beef jerkey (beware all that extra salt may swell you up - do in moderation)
Pork skins (easy to burn out on!)
Some low carb fruits in a baggie (berries, melon, whatever you can afford)
Jello sugar free pudding cups (5-6 carbs each - I love 'em)
Jello sugar free gelatin cups (0 net carbs and help with a sugar craving)
Sugar free yogurt tubs
Summer sausage and cheese cubes in a baggie (my most popular choice of late)
Few pieces of sugar free gum and candy (love the dove chocolate ones!)
Can of meat or leftover meat, bag of salad, small tupperware bowl of dressing, cheese cubes and a big plastic portable bowl and plastic fork - yum. Throw in a few nuts - more yum. Bit of bacon - even more yum. I put the meat, cheese and dressing in the big bowl then just dump in the bag of salad and mix. Fast to fix, takes a while to eat it all though.
Swiss Miss diet hot cocoa if hot water is available and cups.
Pork skins and bags of plain dry roasted peanuts from vending machines!
Leftovers in a tight plastic bowl if you can microwave or leftovers you like cold.
I bet more folks can come up with even more ideas for you. Hang in there. I have the same problem. I work 12 hour night shifts - spend the night fending off pushy "OH come on, you can have this, it's all about moderation" coworkers and trying not to make eye contact with the vending machines. I pack a load of stuff, then bring home what I didn't want - that way I have several choices in case one thing doesn't interest me.
