If you have familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS), snacking takes more thought, so we’ve put together some FCS-friendly snacks that you can grab – and then go! Ask your dietitian if these will work for you.
Quick Snacks On-The-Go
Fresh vegetables such as baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, and bell peppers are tasty snacks packed with nutrients and ready to eat.
Fat-Free Cottage Cheese
Fat-free cottage cheese is good on its own, mixed with fruit, or as a dip for your fresh veggies.
Ranch powder mixed with fat-free Greek yogurt makes a delicious ranch dip.
Berries and certain fruits in moderation – strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, oranges, kiwi.
Non-fat, sugar–free yogurts make a delicious base for many treats.
Non-Fat String Cheese
Non-fat string cheese can be stocked in the refrigerator for a “grab and go” snack.
Turkey jerky can be very low in fat, tastes delicious, and ready to eat.
Make the fat-free kind in a microwave. Toss in salt, dried oregano or basil, cinnamon, or a dash of cayenne pepper.
Peanut Butter Powder
Made from defatted peanuts and high in protein, add it to shakes or smoothies, or mix with water and use as a spread.
