Hi Jia023, welcome to the Type 2 Community here at MedHelp!

We have a lot of articles on snack ideas in the Sugar Sense app. You'll find them in the Health Guide, which you can access by going to the menu in the upper left corner of the home screen. Look for snack ideas in the Eat Right category and recipes in the Recipes category.

You can also follow our Sugar Sense Facebook page where we post articles and other info.

I'll also link to them here!

Hi,

Good snacks are low carb snacks.  Cheese, eggs, cold meats, vegetable sticks with cream based dips, nuts (best are macadamias and other high fat nuts - peanuts and cashews are best limited as they are high carb).

You may get used to not having such sweetened foods over time.  

You may get more ideas by looking at low carb / keto / paleo recipes.
