Anyone have suggestions for Crunchy Foods on Atkins. I posted some on my blog but are looking for some more ideas.

pork rinds (Chicharones), flax seed crackers, nuts-especially almonds, oven baked zuchini slices/chips, they do sell low carb chips online-however I've never tried them.
I use a recipe for cheese chips I found online at "Peace, Love, and Low Carb":
2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Shredded
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Tsp Cumin
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Chili Powder
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. (It shouldn't stick to the paper anyway but I always give it light spraying.
Pour the cheddar cheese onto the parchment paper and spread out as thin as you can. (In the shape of a rectangle.)
Sprinkle the grated Parmesan evenly on top of the cheddar cheese.
Combine the Cumin, Garlic powder, and Chili powder and sprinkle evenly on top of the cheeses)
Bake on 400* on the middle rack for 8-10 minutes. Check on it constantly as it can go from zero to burnt in no time at all. Set cookie sheet on a cooling rack and let cool for 10 minutes.

this sounds odd, but I have been eating Kale chips. I heard about them last year sometime and it took me forever to try them. After all it's KALE. They are surprisingly addictive. Kale has 3G carb per ounce raw, but an ounce is a lot of Kale. If you weigh it, do it after you take off the stem/spine.
I like this recipe from Gluten Free Girl because I like the salt mix she has to put on them-
I have just used salt, salt and balsamic is tasty too-

Good luck! I weigh in every day which has to stop. It is too easy to get caught up in the excitement of seeing the scale drop so much in a week-that is because of water weight I am sure.

Need suggestions on healthy/low-calorie foods.
You can use shakes for a few days. I have used the Atkins shakes and they are very good tasting. Soups are good though as stated above you may have to puree them. You could puree or blend cottage cheese ...

Even though fat doesn't count in Atkins, it can cause you to gain or not lose weight if you consume too much. Be careful of over eating this nutrient. ie: cream, cream cheese.
