To each their own. I am not much of a salad person, and I respectfully disagree, nuts are extremely healthy foods
I'll eat a salad only if I can put red wine vinegar and olive oil on it. Those other dressings just don't make it for me. And for some reason, salads put weight on me (don't know why) so I rarely eat them.
Plus if I do, I want organic ingredients. I've read about the pesticide and herbicide residues on lettuce, celery, and other greens.
The 2019 "Dirty Dozen" list, those that I do eat, I will not eat if not organic.
Bell peppers are 13, lettuce is 15, cucumbers 16, and so on:
You find lots of salad and fruits in the top 47 pesticide contaminated foods, and there are no nuts on that list.
Not that nuts are pesticide free, but at least they have a shell as a barrier so they are not coated in pesticides and herbicides.
And yes, the no-carb bars are actually extremely low carb bars, and I use them for what I call 'emergency food'. On the road or on an airplane they are easy to pack and carry.
Most of what I eat is prepared at home with wholesome ingredients or as close to wholesome as I can find. A lot of it is eaten as-is with no preparation - I have nuts and imported European cheese (healthier, no rbgh and made with A2 milk) almost every day.
To me it's more than low-carb, although that is a big part of my diet. But by eating an anti-inflammatory and low poison-added diet, plus supplemental vitamins, I am 73 years old with zero prescriptions and I can't even remember the last time I caught a cold - 15 years or more - and I work with senior citizens many who come up to hug and kiss me. I haven't called in sick for work in since the mid 1960s.
But to each their own. What works best for one person is not necessarily best for someone else.
PS, last year I spent 5 weeks in Australia from Brisbane up to Cape Trib over to Darwin down to Kangaroo Island and back to Sydney - mostly driving. I never ate at a single fast food store, and don't even remember seeing a subway, although I'm sure I would have if I paid attention. The pubs are great places for a quick meal, service is friendly, and the employees actually get paid for their work so there is no tipping.
Woolworth's (grocery store) had great bags of mixed nuts, macadamias, cashews and so on. The coffee in Australia is good. Bega Heritage Cheddar cheese is the best I've ever tasted, and the Australian people are some of the friendliest, courteous, and most civilized people I've ever met, and I've been on 6 of the 7 continents.
