Low Carb Snacks
Feel the need to snack? Make some good low carb choices
Before I embarked on my new low carb journey, snacking was a large part of my life. Like millions of other people, bad food choices cause fluctuating blood sugar levels which result in pretty much being hungry constantly. I’d tell people “I wish they’d invent a pill that would curb hunger!”
Little did I know, that living a low carb, low sugar life was that magic pill!
I was worried when I started living low carb, that I’d be completely out of snack options that didn’t break the plan. Now, because I’m rarely hungry in-between meals, the need to snack these days hardly even crosses my mind.
However, it does happen on occasion, and it’s important to have a decent supply of low-carb snacks on hand just in case.
Low Carb Snack Options
Below are three recommended items I’ve used (non perishable, with long shelf life). We will update the Low Carb Snacks category periodically with new, interesting options.
- Jack Links Hot & Spicy Beef Sticks – Great hunger crunchers, and a million times tastier than Slim Jims (without that chewy skin). Also, no MSG.
- QuestBar Protein Bars – most protein bars have tons of sugar in them. These Quest bars have only about 4g net carbs. They do contain Sucralose, which could pose problems – so Quest listened to customers and has begun producing all-natural bars with Stevia sweetener, and actually have less net carbs as well.
- Just The Cheese Crunch Baked Cheese Snacks – A much better alternative than pretzels or potato chips! Very low carb, and satiates you with minimal consumption. I tried almost all flavors – and found that these three were my favorites: Jalapeno, Nacho Cheese and Movie Popcorn Butter.
