    Babybel cheese, small packs or pots of nuts, mini salami or chorizo style sausage? They're all portion measured as nibbling can be troublesome if trying to show any modicum of self control with a large pack of jumbo nuts, for example.

    Babybell cheese. I have been eating walnuts recently due to their omega 3 benefits. I like to eat pickled onions on chunks of cheese. I also have hummus with carrots or celery.

    Great question.

    My fave veggie tasty low carb work snacks, all easy as long as you plan in advance:

    A few cashews or other nuts
    Olives
    Slices of avocado, or even guacamole with chilli and lime
    Chunks of coconut
    Tomatoes
    Beetroot
    Radishes
    Plain Greek yoghurt
    Sticks of carrots, cucumber or peppers with dips like humous, tzatzki, baba ganoush, or broad bean and mint.
    Make a small pot of salad - e.g. Spinach with a boiled egg, mozerella tomatoes and basil, or a coleslaw made of red cabbage, grated carrots and mayo.

    Boursin cheese scooped up with celery sticks, sunflower seeds in the shell to slow you down, pepperoni sticks, deviled or just hard boiled eggs ...

    Babybel, olives, nuts, prawns and mayo dip (if purchasing something from a supermarket!) Have just discovered crispy seaweed thins which are slightly odd but nice wrapped round a piece of cheddar. If you don't mind doing a bit of cooking, these are lovely with some pate: http://www.diabeticgoodbaking.com/2015/02/pumpkin-and-sunflower-seeds-crackers.html These are good too: https://www.ruled.me/avocado-tuna-melt-bites/ and for a sweet treat: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/chocolate-peanut-squares
