Help, new diet restrictions (on top of allergies)

(1/3) > >>

I feel like my body is so broken!! Currently in the middle of blood workup from general practice dr for low blood sugar episodes. She has said i need to be on a low carb, no added sugar, high protein diet....I am at a loss, i was already struggling with what to eat with my allergies. now i am just at a standstill.

Sorry to be such a downer today. Any advice on good snack foods? since i am supposed to be eating this new diet 6 times a day and i am getting really sick of chicken lol. current snacks have been pork jerky, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, dried fruit (mangoes and cranberries), low cal popcorn, celery or broccoli with hummus.

Allergies: apples, cantaloupe, cashews, string beans, beef, coffee mix, carrots, egg whites, egg yolk, shrimp

thanks all for listening and any advice in advance!

How about cheese sticks or cubes?  Almonds (safe from Xcontam), peanut butter?

Thanks for the response! I will try the cheese, hadn't thought of that.

I had to eat low carb for a while when I was pregnant and mistakenly diagnosed with gestational diabetes.  Things that I liked for snacks:

Cottage cheese with sunflower seeds mixed in
Rolled up deli meat - plain, rolled around a cheese stick, rolled around asparagus
Low carb tortilla with PB or made into a quesadilla
Frozen greek yogurt bars
One of the smaller boxes of frozen broccoli or cauliflower with cheese sauce
Green Beans with parmesan cheese, garlic, and black pepper

Thank you for the suggestions! I am going to try some of those. It's just been so hard thinking up things to eat when I have to eat 5-6 times a day without getting bored with what I can eat! So my brain kinda shut down to, " you eat nothing" lol
