Healthy salty snack recommendations?



Recommended Posts

I'm almost 4 months post op and have a condition that makes my blood pressure on the low side. My doctor told me to add salt to my diet. I do that but it's still not up enough. I added roasted, salted cashews as a snack. They're so delicious that I'm eating too many. Probably 1/2 cup at one sitting. So I'm trying to find a healthier/less fattening alternative. Any ideas?

What about just adding more salt to what you are already eating and not trying to find a snack to add?

Thanks for the replies. I do already add a lot of salt to what I'm eating. As I lose weight, I'm having to add more and more. I decided to add V8 juice because it's heavy on the sodium. If I want something to crunch on, I'm going to try edamame with added salt. I appreciate your thoughts.

Try getting the low salt V8 variety and add Mrs Dash or "Slap Yo Mama", That's a Cajun seasoning. Oh maybe Italian or Taco seasoning. No need to be boring. And if you're feeling really Froggy, Hot Sauce.🔥 LOL

Try pickles. Zero calories, tons of sodium. And crunchy.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
