Hi Bbarb

What about stocking packets of nuts (not peanuts) such as almonds, Brazils, Hazlenuts etc.  You can get small tubs of nuts in Lidl.

Atkins cereal bars.  Small cans of tuna with a ring pull, or salmon or sardines.  Olives are good snacks for those that like em.

Of course they are not carb free (very little is) but the Alpen Light Cereal bars are only 10 or 11g per bar.  The Cherry Bakewell ones taste amazing.  I also once had some Jaffa Cake flavoured ones that were scrummy. I get them in packs of 5 for £1 in B&M.

Other than that we have recipes for very low carb (about 1.5g) savoury muffins with cheese & sun dried tomatoes, but of course someone would have to make them and you'd have to sell em quickly or keep em in a fridge.  http://diabetes-support.org.uk/diabetes_forum/index.php/topic,1304.0.html loads of variations if you scroll down that thread.

Did you enquire what she might snack on at home that she could keep on a shelf not a fridge on the offchance a diabetic happened to pop by and ask for something?

I am being sarky yes of course - but you know we'd all be suggesting eg ham fritata, or a piece of cheese -can't even put veg in the frittata really cos there's carb in even lettuce.  So it's very very difficult to find a snack you could sell in a café that's entirely carb free.  Perhaps she was looking for ideas?  I know the WVS snack bar in the cancer treatment section of Coventry hospital only has a fridge that small you couldn't keep the 4 litre bottles of milk we buy for home, in it.  The teeny camping fridges we had in caravans 40 years ago were bigger!

I find it difficult to find suitable snacks when I am out.  The only thing that I have come across outside of supermarkets are pork scratchings.  I found they stocked them at the bar in the inn where I go for my quiz evenings once a week but they weren't the same make as the ones I have bought from supermarkets in the past.   These ones were so salty and I just couldn't eat them.

The WH Smith shop at our hospital doesn't have any suitable snacks either.  I looked for Werther's sugar free sweets in there but they don't stock them.  They had no other sugar free ones either and no pork scratchings.  In the end I went to the restaurant and bought myself a bowl of soup. 

I agree it is heartening to know that some medical staff are grasping the LCHF lifestyle.

I volunteer in the RVS tea bar at out local hospital where we stock all kinds of snacks as well as make tea and coffees.
Today one of the nurses came in and looked at our shelves and asked what could she have that was carb free?
She explained that she was diabetic and was trying to eat carb free, but we had nothing to offer her - nothing at all!   I found it heartening that the medical staff were beginning to grasp the LCHF lifestyle, but disappointing that we had nothing on out well stocked shelves that was suitable.  Isn't that shocking?

Thank your for joining.  I find it odd that you are not taken directly to a page where you can easily join, but concluded that it was just me being taken to my own page which states how much I personally have raised for the forum.

You might have to log out, clear cookies and pretend to be a new joiner to see the page I mentioned.

Alan I may have to investigate all this.... too tired tonight.

No worries, not a major thing. I'm a little concerned at the level of access they want to my computer but I've joined anyway.


Unfortunately the Expedia link is locked to Expedia UK and the price in GBP was significantly higher for my Uzbek Airlines Business Class Kuala Lumper > Tashkent > Istanbul flight next August than the US$ for the US site after relevant conversions to AU$. The fare does not even appear on the Australian version :( .  I have booked on the US Expedia but there will be other bookings to come.
