Good high protien, low fat/carb options

That don't need to be refridgerated... I need a mid-morning snack, but am limited to chex mix or 100 cal packs (full of carbs) and with new medical issues I have, I have been advised to keep away from carbs until dinner time.

I NEED IDEAS.... Thank you for any help!!

lowfat string cheese - you can keep it for about half a day out of refrigeration in an air conditioned office. if not, you might want to freeze it before you take it in the morning.
boiled egg
hummus & veggies (celery sticks, baby carrots)
peanut butter & celery

PB on pretty much anything is good
Smart Balance Omega Natural PB has17 g fat (12 monounsaturated..ultra good for you) 5 g of carbs, 2 g fiber, a 8 g protein..and it tastes amazing.

The link is to a list of low carb foods I just foujd for you :]

Also, hard boiled eggs and eating just the egg whites...but make sure you eat enough of them to make an actual "meal" out of them, or eat them with something else..or then you'll be super hungry really soon!

1. nuts (1/4 c is a serving- it's not a lot, but does fill you up),
2. kashi has granola bars for about 140 cals and 7g protein;
3. south beach has high protein cereal bars too for the same amt of cals & 10g protein;
4. I like kashi go lean cereal too - 1 c has 140 cals, 13g protein and 10g fiber (I even eat it w/o milk)

All these are portable and don't need refrigeration. The cereal might not be the easiest to eat though.

Watch the South Beach cereal bars..they contain sugar alcohols which can be tough on your digestive system. If you can tolerate them they are a great option.
