Delicious and Healthy Keto Snacks
Many popular snack foods have too many carbs to easily fit into a keto diet plan. This can be particularly frustrating when you’re trying to ward off that between-meal hunger.
If you’ve found yourself in this nutritional predicament, don’t worry.
There are many low-carb snack options that are just as healthy as they are delicious.
This article outlines 21 keto-friendly snacks to include in your next meal plan.
Mini frittatas, or egg muffins, are a great keto-friendly snack that’s easy to prepare and fully customizable.
All you need to get started is:
- a dozen eggs
- standard 12-cup muffin pan
- mixing bowl
- an oven
To begin, beat the eggs in a bowl and season with a little salt and pepper.
Distribute the egg mixture evenly between each muffin cup and add your preferred low-carb ingredients like:
Caprese salad is a classic Italian favorite. When you assemble the ingredients on skewers, it turns into a great portable snack.
Preparing it is as easy as alternating pieces of fresh mozzarella cheese, basil leaves, and cherry tomatoes onto skewers. Eat it plain or mix a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dipping.
A 3.5-ounce serving (100 grams) of Caprese salad may provide about 139 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fat — not including dipping sauce
If you’re a fan of Caesar salad, you’ll love these mini Caesar salad bites. You can use romaine lettuce if you want to keep it classic, but a heartier type of green like kale holds up better if you’re not planning to eat them right away.
Make individual cups to hold the salad by heating tablespoon-sized portions of grated Parmesan cheese on a parchment-lined baking pan. Bake until the cheese has melted and is starting to brown.
Let the melted cheese portions cool slightly before placing each over the bottom side of a mini muffin pan, lightly pressing the cheese into the shape of the muffin cups. Let them cool completely, and they’ll turn into small, edible, crispy cups.
First, use a Cajun style dry rub on the shrimp. Place the seasoned shrimp on skewers, alternating with thick slices of fresh bell pepper.
Bake or grill the kebabs until the shrimp is fully cooked and the peppers are between crisp and tender. Serve right away, or store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat.
Pairing fresh or lightly cooked vegetables with your favorite nut butter is one of the simplest, nutrient rich snacks you can make.
Nuts are loaded with heart healthy fats. Research suggests that regularly eating nuts may support blood sugar management and weight loss
