SURVEY: Healthy Acceptable Paleo Snacks

I know that some of us don't believe in snacking as part of the Paleo lifestyle and some of us only snack on whole foods (fruits, boiled eggs, avocados, etc), but some of us still do enjoy snacking on prepared healthy snack foods (everything from trail mixes to baked goods made with nutritious ingredients).

So, for those of us who still snack on prepared foods; please read on.

I'm creating a Paleo snack and instead of creating something that would be my own favorite snack, I'd like to know what your favorite snack is.

1) What is your favorite type of Paleo snack?

2) What used to be your favorite snack before adopting the Paleo lifestyle?

3) What's your biggest challenge when looking for snacks?

4) What's most important to you when choosing a snack?

5) What immediately disqualifies a potential snack for you?

6) What specifically would be your ideal Paleo snack (even if it hasn't been created yet)?

Thank you for sharing your snacking likes and dislikes! This will help us to create your favorite Healthy Paleo snack. :)

I love the banana dipped into almond butter! This one is also amazing: -Unsweetened chocolate dipped into raw honey :-O! I don't know if I could handle that one, ha ha. Jeez, the frozen banana cacao cookies sound delicious too. That sounds like it would be delicious with seconds. :) Great snacking ideas, I love them!

Raw nuts....mmmm. Sometimes, nothing beats a small handful of mixed raw nuts...nothing!

I don't have any interest or intention of being spammy or salesy. Honestly, I would just really love feedback so that I can create an awesome snack.

This lifestyle is just really close to my heart, I thought it'd be amazing to be able to combine some of my talents and give back to the community. You have already given me some great feedback, would you mind giving me your opinion on this paleo snack once it's ready? I'd really appreciate it! If not, then that's cool too. You've already been very helpful. :) Thanks again Methodician!

No problem. Just try not to spam this forum to promote your product if this comes to fruition because we're sick and tired of spam and ads here. Happy to answer paleo questions. That's what it's about!

Thank you so much for your long and detailed answer! None of my friends are paleo, so I was a bit in the dark regarding this issue. It's one thing to be able to read blogs online, it's another to be able to get a direct answer from the community. Thank you again for taking the time out to respond. :)

1) What is your favorite type of Paleo snack?

Things like pork skins, macadamia nuts, raisins, plantain chips, oh and chocolate. Snacking is about convenience to me. I sometimes snack on home-prepared foods but have found a number of convenient, pre-packaged foods that I find acceptable in my own version of paleo.

2) What used to be your favorite snack before adopting the Paleo lifestyle?

Hard to beat chips and dip... If only I could find a reliable source of tarro chips made with coconut oil and a nice paleoized dip that went well with them, I'd probably keep them around.

3) What's your biggest challenge when looking for snacks?

Duh... most of them are unhealthy and overly processed and filled with n6-rich oils...

4) What's most important to you when choosing a snack?

Natural, minimally processed, low in omega 6, and CONVENIENT. Preferrably nutrient dense but you gotta give up something.

5) What immediately disqualifies a potential snack for you?

Excessive processing and the addition of bad oils and purified sugar sources.

6) What specifically would be your ideal Paleo snack (even if it hasn't been created yet)?

Chips and dip.

My favorite snack is raw nuts. I also love making items with coconut and almond flour.

1) What is your favorite type of Paleo snack?

-An apple.

-Sliced bananas with almond butter and raw honey.

-Unsweetened chocolate dipped into raw honey.

-Frozen banana cookies (bananas mixed with pulverized almonds and cacao nibs made into balls and frozen)

2) What used to be your favorite snack before adopting the Paleo lifestyle?

Probably Ben & Jerry's ice cream or blueberry muffins. I don't remember snacking so much since I stuffed myself with pasta at every meal.

3) What's your biggest challenge when looking for snacks?

I easily get addicted to snacking and then make myself sick, so my challenge is stopping after the first snack.

If I am looking for a packaged snack I always look at the ingredients for canola/soybean oil, soy lecithin, and natural flavor first because they usually have those and at that point I put it down. It's rare that I find a high quality packaged snack but when I do it's worth splurging a little.

4) What's most important to you when choosing a snack?

It just has to be yummy and relatively healthy and not make me feel like I'm poisoning myself.

5) What immediately disqualifies a potential snack for you?

Anything with GMOs, canola oil, or natural/artificial flavors.

6) What specifically would be your ideal Paleo snack (even if it hasn't been created yet)?

Ideal paleo snacks for me would be high protein but not heavy on nuts. Maybe jerky snacks with different flavorings, maybe some sweet ones dipped in chocolate if that wouldn't taste too weird. :D

Here are my responses: 1) My favorite snack is healthy Paleo cookies (avocado based dough with flaxseed).

2) My past life favorite snack was cookies....lol. 3) My biggest challenge is finding low glycemic, nutritious and sustaining pre-made snacks. 4) The things that are most important to me are organic, low glycemic, no preservatives and nutritionally dense snacks. 5) An immediate disqualifier for me is processed ingredients (ex: sugar), dairy and almond flour.

6) My ideal snack would be a balance and healthy baked good type of snack.
