My Top 5 Low-Carb Picks on the Gas Station

Having driven over 700 miles from Ohio to Recent England through the course of my graduate work quite a few times, I’m no stranger to cross-country travel. Sometimes, whenever you’re in a rush, a small meal or a snack could have to come back from a gas station convenience store, which might throw a wrench in your plan to take care of blood sugar control.



Listed below are my top five low-carb, protein-packed go-tos in terms of gas station food shopping:

  1. Nuts and seeds: Nuts like almonds, walnuts, and peanuts have abundant protein and fat, and are lower on the carb count, while also providing quite a lot of fiber. Walnuts are also abundant in antioxidants! Be mindful that cashews are higher on the carb count, and lower in fiber, making them more more likely to raise blood sugar levels, especially if consumed in larger quantities. Sunflower seeds are also a nutrient-rich and blood glucose-friendly snack alternative.

  2. Cheese sticks or crackers: Stuffed with fat, protein, and calcium, cheese sticks proved a simple, tasty, and filling option. Also, several corporations make “crackers” using just cheese! These make for a extremely crunchy and satisfying snack. Look out for products like Moon Cheese and Whisps.

  3. Pork rinds: Pork rinds are filled with protein and contain virtually no carbohydrates. Crunchy, salty, satisfying, and simple in your blood sugar.

  4. Hardboiled eggs: Eggs are an ideal superfood, filled with protein, almost no carbs, and nutrient-rich, containing quite a few vitamins and minerals.

  5. Beef Jerky: Abundant in fat and protein, certain sorts of beef jerky are quite low on the carb count. Just check the dietary info on the packaging to avoid the sweetened varieties!

While I might not need to eat just these foods every day, they’re great selections to maintain you feeling full while helping keep blood sugar levels regular during times like travel, when there could also be few other low-carb options available.
