  2. Egg salad or deviled Eggs – both of these options generally don’t include much really other then eggs, which are wonderfully low in carbs but high in protein to give you a nice energy boost right when you need it.
  3. Salads — be they pre-made or at a salad bar, salads are very low carb, and a light meal that will leave you feeling awake instead of tired and groggy.
  4. Deli Foods—yeah you heard me–try eating chicken, or tuna salads–and of course shrimp. Even most friend chicken is low in carbs as long as you can get it un-breaded.
