Review of Tom-Toms Turkey Snack Sticks

Review of Tom-Toms Turkey Snack Stick
Low Carb Meat Stick Snack. Brenda Bennett

 When time is not on your side and you've got a busy day ahead, grabbing healthy snacks for the day is important if you plan on sticking to your sugar-free lifestyle. Temptation comes when we are hungry so avoiding that in the first place is the key to a sustainable sugar free life style. Sugar Cravings can come whenever we least expect them. Packing well will be a skill you must acquire sooner than later for peace of mind.

Don't get caught without one!

I have an arsenal of snacks I like to include when I go food shopping. Ones that are store bought but are needed, especially when there's just no time in the schedule to make my own snacks. If you follow my rule of thumb when purchasing packaged items, you will have no trouble reading food labels for sugar and know which foods to avoid. 

Other snacks I often Grab-n-Go with are Quest Bars, string cheese, an apple, nuts, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, beef jerky and Moon Cheese.

When I have time to make my own Grab-N-Go snacks I bring along; Quinoa Granola Bars, some Homemade Apple Chips and even some homemade chocolate bark!

Honestly, in this day and age there really is no reason you can't live a sustainable sugar free life style. The recipes are here for you to make and the store bought packaged can be found if you look carefully. The only difficult part will be portion control when something tastes so good you have trouble eating just the serving.

Pros:

  • They taste delicious!
  • They are low in carbs and calories!
  • They are high in protein.
  • They are light in weight, perfect to carry in a back pack for a hike or a pocketbook while doing errands.

Cons: 

  • They come in a package of 5, but it is not resealable so unless you plan to share or eat all of them, you should carry a ziplock bag to store them in.
  • They are expensive.
