Default Help w/ snack ideas?

I'm hoping I can tap into some of the group knowledge here, and get some good ideas on SB snacks. I have dietary restrictions - no soy, dairy, almonds, or eggs - and there's only so much beef jerky I can eat in a day

Any suggestions? I also can't really do aspartame/ splenda/ other artificial sweeteners because they make my head spin. Haven't tried stevia yet, but may give it a whirl if I find a good recipe!

Snacks can be any food that you can eat in a small portion.
A cup of soup can be a snack.
Some ( 2 tbs)hummus with fresh veggies is also a good snack.
Snacks do not need to be sweet food as I enjoy savory snacks too.
I cook up a couple of lbs of chicken breasts at a time and will cut off a couple of ounces as a snack sometimes.

Hope some of this helps!

know this is an old thread, but i am brainstorming new snacks at the moment, so figured i'd reply:

no soy, dairy, almonds, or eggs

1. celery with peanut butter
2. veggies and baba gnoiush, guacomole, bean dip, hummus, etc...
3. nuts, other than almonds
4. turkey slices wrapped around a pickle

my staple snack is raw veggies (especially cucumber, snap pea or red pepper) with hummus and a small slice of pepper jack cheese

I don't know why I didn't see this thread before. I'm also gluten-free (out of necessity). The no dairy makes it a little more complicated but I am sure any of these ideas should work for you.

Things I snack on:
celery w/ peanut butter
red pepper strips w/ hummus
macadamias or peanuts
nuts with a fruit (ie: peanuts & cherries, hazelnuts & grapes)
avocado slices w/ lemon juice sprinkled on them
pepperoni chips (nuke for a minute or so, let cool & they turn crispy)
tomato slices grilled for 2 minutes
cucumbers w/ a little salt
soups (I freeze soups into 1 serving portions & thaw when needed in micro)
crispy pickles

I forgot I started this thread! I just saw it on the 'new posts' feed and thought 'hey, that's interesting' and then noticed I had asked the question to begin with!

I've discovered cheese and pepperoni 'chips' - both total winners - and my go-to recently has been nut butter on a spoon. Very frat boy of me, but I like it (although I see the value of using a veggie as the carrier, rather than just a utensil)

I am buying sliced turkey today with the sole purpose of wrapping it around a pickle! Holey Moses, that sounds SO good.

Thanks all!

ps I added back in lower-lactose dairy to no ill effect, and that's made things a bit easier too
