View Full Version : I found a yummy Atkins snack

I imagine someone somewhere probably invented this snack but I think I made it up all by myself.

I'm always looking for ways to increase my fat intake and this is a snack I ate today, I liked it a lot, but food tastes are such a personal thing, my fellow Atkin's followers may not like it at all.

I took unpeeled cucumber slices and topped them with alouette Savory Vegetable spreadable cheese. Very easy, has a nice crunch, sugar free and I think it's pretty tasty.

A serving of the cheese spread is 2 tablespoons and contains:
60 calories (50 calories from fat)
6 grams fat
1 gram protein
1 gram carbohydrates (no fiber)

A serving of cucumber slices= 1/2 cup
7 calories
0.1 gram fat (who knew cucumbers had fat?)
0.4 grams protein
1.7 grams total carbs
0.7 grams of fiber
1.0 grams net carbs

So if you eat one serving each of the cheese and cucumbers you would be consuming a total of 67 calories and 2 grams of impact carbohydrates.

Now that I can take two pain pills at a time, I feel much better. Thanks Jody.

I can only chew with the left side of my mouth, do you think that cuts the calories in half?

thanks for the tip! I think I'll try it.

I hope your mouth is feeling better, Kath!

That does sound like a really tasty snack. Cucumbers have fat? Next thing I know you'll be telling me that water has fat! ha ha!

Sending heal quickly pixie dust your way. I know how much you miss your elliptical trainer! ;)
