I find myself eating tons of peanut butter and I can't help but think there has to be a better high fat or high protein snack? Beef Jerky is expensive so thats not an option. Thanks

Peanut butter is NOT Paleo! Peanuts are legumes, not nuts. Choose almond or macadamia or coconut butter, much better options. Other high-fat snacks: olives, bacon, avocados, canned sardines.

Have you tried increasing the fat percentage in your meals? You may find (as I did) that you no longer need any snacks. I now get by quite nicely on 3 feeds per day instead of the 5 or 6 I used to have.
