Are you hungry on your keto diet, but your next meal is hours away? A keto snack may be the answer. Snacks can buy you some time, allowing you to delay meals to fit your busy schedule.
Snacking shouldn’t happen every day, though. In fact, ideally, you shouldn’t feel the need to snack at all.
A major benefit of keto is that it often prevents hunger for hours after meals.
If you regularly need to snack, try adding more fat and protein to your meals.
Take the edge off your hunger with these tasty options. Almost no preparation required! Keto basics like cheese, avocados, olives and macadamia nuts keep healthy fats front and center while minimizing carbs.
The numbers below the snacks are the percent of digestible carbohydrates, or net carbs.
For example, 100 grams of avocado (3.5 ounces) contains 2 grams of net carbs.
A slice of cheese, a few olives, some fatty cold cuts, or a few slices of bacon make excellent keto snacks.
Or choose a small portion of nuts that are very low in carbs, like macadamia nuts, pecans or Brazil nuts (be careful of cashews.)
A hard-boiled egg is another ideal keto snack. Try it with mayo, cream cheese, a keto dip, or butter
