When a person switches over to a diet with a reduced amount of carbs, they may feel as though their snack options are limited. Fortunately, there are some good lower carb choices out there.
Here are some ideas!
Lower carb snack options
Zucchini is just great in general on a low carb diet. You can slice it thinly and put in a tuna/mayonnaise filling- like what is show in the above picture.
Coffee and cream-
If you are a coffee drinker, consider having some with heavy cream in it! It can give you energy all while filling you up.
These are close to crackers! Some might find them too pungent though. There are cheese crisps that come in different flavors/cheese types that may be more mild than these parmesan ones.
Lunch meat, pepperoni slices and cheese-
These three things or a combination of them are great choices for a snack. A lot of people may eat them with crackers and/or bread for a sandwich- just skip those for a lower carb option!
Lower carb pudding-
Mixing together sugar-free pudding and two cups of heavy whipping cream gives you a decadent, lower carb treat. It is great for a snack and/or dessert.
Um… why not?
A handful of nuts-
Nuts provide good fats and nutrients all while being lower in carbs than other snacks. Combining a handful of nuts with something else (i.e. a cheese stick), can make for a great and filling snack!
There are more options out there!
Watching carbs is an adjustment at first because there are so many carb laden foods out there. Once you look more into this way of eating, you will find that you do not need to feel deprived. There are delicious and filling options available to turn watching carbs into a long term thing.
The foods pictured in this post are just some of my go-to snacks. My absolute favorite snacks right now are sea salted cashews and cheese.
