Low-carb diets are efficient when it comes to losing weight, but the biggest problem is the lack of snacks. It’s not that the diet doesn’t allow snacks at all – there are more than a few you can eat, they just must be low in carbs. People wrongfully think that keto diets don’t allow snacks, but if you know what to eat, you will keep yourself full between meals while losing weight at the same time.
Here are the best low-carb keto snacks you can eat:
Macadamia nuts are kings of the nut world if you ask us. They just taste better than other nuts and have a great nutritional profile as well. More specifically, they are full of oleic acid, a healthy fat our body can use for fuel. With their crunchy flavor and soft center, they might be the best keto snack!
Who says you can’t have sweet things when on a low-carb diet? You can have all the dark chocolate you want. Make sure it contains at least 85% of cacao – bars that contain less are full of sugar and not much else.
Raspberries taste great, are full of essential nutrients and contain only 5.4 gr. carbs per 100 gr. They are especially full of polyphenols, compounds which can reduce oxidative stress in our bodies and reduce the risk of several serious disorders.
It’s tasty, it’s chewy, and is a much better option than candy. If you’re on a keto diet, beef jerky is the perfect snack. Just buy a bunch and take it with you anywhere you go. In this way, you will curb your cravings pretty easily.
Eggs contain no carbs at all, but they are full of healthy fats and protein, which is exactly what your body needs when you’re on a keto diet.
Besides macadamia nuts, peanuts are the second best choice for a snack when you’re on a keto diet. They are crunchy and tasty, have an excellent nutritional profile and will curb your cravings like nothing else. A handful per day should be just enough to keep cravings at bay.
Wondering what bulletproof coffee is? Its blended black coffee mixed with a bit of coconut oil and butter. Don’t worry – it’s not as bad as it sounds. This great snack will wake you up in the morning while also curbing your cravings. It’s a win-win kind of situation.
Fermented dairy’s full benefits on our health have been a subject of many studies. Many experts agree that fermented dairy such as Greek yogurt can prevent a variety of problems including cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, Greek yogurt is also low in carbs, making it the perfect keto snack.
Olives are full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, making them a true champion of health. They are also low in carbs, which means you can eat a lot of them without disturbing your keto diet.
Stuffed Bell Peppers
Talk about a treat! You can stuff bell peppers with some cheddar cheese, onions, ground beef, and garlic for a tasty treat that is low on carbs. They are finger-licking good!
Prosciutto is a perfect low-carb snack you can eat on its own or wrap some cheese in it. The second option is our favorite.
All nuts have a variety of positive health benefits, and pecans are somewhere near the top of the list. They are full of healthy fats and other nutrients while also being ridiculously low in carbs. Just like peanuts, almonds, and macadamia nuts, pecans should be among your keto snack choices.
If we write down all the exceptional nutrients avocados have, we’d run out of space pretty soon. Just eat it every day – it’s a great low-carb snack that will keep your health in check.
