Low fibre snacking on the go?? HELP!


Quote  |  Reply
What are some low fibre snacks that don't require refrigeration?

I'm going on a lengthy car trip, no stops, and I want to keep some handy in case hunger strikes, but my fibre has already sky rocketed to 40g! I don't want to be 'gassy' in the car!

So what are some suggestions?

personally, i'm quite partial to the quaker oats brand oatmeal on the go.

it's sortof like an oatmeal bar, and they're quite delicious.

 That would be a fairly HIGH fiber snack, but anyway...

 

Do you get gas from foods with fiber?  I've never had that problem, except from beans.

 I usually bring a bunch of carrot sticks and put them in a mini cooler with some cool drinks for long trips - also pack a sandwich for lunch...

 

I can't imagine trying to eat low fiber snacks on a long car trip - seems they would feel so heavy on the stomach.

 

But sunflower seeds & peanuts are tasty and filling... 

thanx for the replies, but so far I've only had high fibre suggestions! (um, oatmeal? seriously... and carrots pack on the fibre too...)

anyone know anything low fibre, room temp. I can snack on?

 I suggested sunflower seeds and nuts.

 

wheat thins, pretzels, 100 calorie packs.  They're not all that healthy though.  I don't know this is hard.  I feel like so many healthy snacks have fiber.  I was going to say yogurt though. Could you bring a cooler?

Unsweetened applesauce cups are pretty low in fiber. So are string cheeses, but they're only good for so long at room temperature. Hard boiled eggs would last a while at room temperature too. Hmm, so many low fiber snacks really need to be refrigerated. Oh! Those Hunts snack pack puddings and jellos don't need refrigeration, and they both come in sugar free. How about beef or turkey jerky?

I can't do a lot of fiber either. More than 20 grams a day flares up my IBS really bad. I eat alot of meat and soy milk.

 I'd suggest that if the OP finds fibrous foods cause flatulence they should simply drink more rather than cut down on the fibre.   A low-fibre diet will only add constipation to the flatulence.

pack some little baggies of cerial that dont have alot of fiber.

like special k has like 1 gram haha if that? or cherrios dont have to much either. you know?

=]

Cereal: You can find alot of them don't have alot of fiber in them, but might have a bungh of sugar
Unsweetened Applesauce
Pudding
Hunt's andother brands foundin the baking aisle don't need ot be refrigerated
Crackers&Cheese Again you can find cheeses that don't need refrigeration
Apples, Grapes, fruits, melons etc - they stay good for a long time without refrigeration - depends on how long the trip is, but I'd say if its under a full day you'd be fine with most fruits

EDIT: I would just go walk around the grocery store and look for snacky things and check out the lables for fiber.
Organic beef jerkey!
Oh yeah! Laughing cow cheese wedges and mini babybels don't require refrigeration. I forgot that.

The Special K snack bars have zero fibre in them, and they're quite good for having only 90 calories. 

 

Beef jerky, hands down, the best road trip food.  I like the terryaki flavored ones, or the spicy stuff.  If you can find homemade jerky, even better.  Otherwise, just the bagged stuff at the grocers.  I think they make organic....?
thanx for the replies!! in the end i didn't really get hungry so i ended up having diet coke the whole way lol but I'll keep this thread tagged in case I need suggestions again xx
