You’re probably heard all about the keto diet – it’s a diet which can help you lose a lot of weight without destroying your health. In fact, many experts consider it healing as well, as studies have shown that a ketogenic diet can treat even the most serious ailments including cancer.
Besides eating low-carb meals which are typical for a keto diet, you also need to include low carb snacks which will keep you full between meals.
These snacks are full of fiber and protein and low on carbs and sugar, making them the perfect addition to a keto diet. Eating these snacks between meals will prevent your cravings and keep you full for longer, preventing overeating.
Here’s a list of low carb snacks that are equally tasty and healthy:
Eggs are the perfect source of protein and the ideal high-fat snack. You can either eat them on your own or make an egg salad with a bit of pepper and mayo. Mix the eggs with some avocado and greens and you’ve got yourself a great healthy snack.
Deli Meat and Cheese
The snack possibilities when using deli meat and cheese are vast. For example – chop them together with veggies, salt, olive oil and pepper to make the perfect appetizer.
Berry Ice Cream
- ½ cup frozen fruit like berries
- 8 tablespoons coconut oil or heavy cream
Put the frozen fruit in a bowl, then add the heavy cream or coconut oil on top. Mix well and add some cinnamon or vanilla if you want, let it freezer for an hour and you can enjoy this nice homemade froyo later.
Protein Snacks You Can Take with You
There are many high-protein, low carb snacks you can take with you at work so you never fall under the temptation to eat unhealthy snacks. Here’s a list:
