These are my favorite best low-carbohydrate snacks that are absolutely delicious and very easy to prepare and eat! The best part? They’re all under 10g net carbs, most are almost ZERO carbs so are keto-friendly too. The best low-carb and keto snacks … just got better.
Do You Snack All The Time? Why do we snack? Hunger, boredom, taste, habit?
The majority of people snack too often, and snack on all the wrong foods.
Maybe you’re hungry all-the-time? Why?
Because if you are living on the standard high-carb low-fat diet, your hunger is constantly being triggered (from the carbs, sugars and grains) and you are not satiated between meals (because you’re not enjoying the higher healthy fats that keen you sustained).
But the good news is, when you learn how to start low-carb you can finally understand what has been sabotaging your appetite.
Learning how to control your appetite is the biggest hurdle for anyone who wants to control their weight.
By eating low-carb and higher fat, you are sustained for longer and no longer have those low sugar crashes after you eat something sweet. Your focus turns to nutrition rather than hunger.
When you want to snack, it is vital to have some healthy snacks at hand.
What makes a good low carb snack?
Obviously something low in sugar, but also no wheat or grains. Add good quality protein and plenty of healthy fat. Many think it’s crazy to snack on fatty foods, but we must get over the fear of fat.
We’re not talking the toxic fats found in burgers, fries and cakes. We want natural healthy fats such as cheese, nuts, meat, fish, and eggs.

EGGS – this has to be my favorite low-carb and keto snack. Eggs are an easy, affordable and portable snack with quality protein and healthy fat to keep your appetite in check. You can buy ready-boiled eggs from the deli counter. Have a bowl of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge or work.
NUTS – are a great combination of protein and healthy fats BUT their carb content can soon add up, so only buy small snack packs OR pre-pack a portion-controlled quantity. Always choose lower-carb nuts such as macadamias, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Avoid cashews.
CHEESE – are a great high-fat and protein-filled keto snack. There are so many varieties of cheese to choose from. Snack on slices, cubes, shredded cheese. Watch the carbs in some cheeses. They can sometimes sneak in with hidden dried fruits, nuts and even wheat and starch in pre-shredded/grated cheeses.
DELI MEAT – head to your local deli counter and buy quality cooked chicken, ham, roast beef or another favorite cold cooked meat. Keep the leftovers from last night’s dinner or roast and make your own zero carb keto snack. Avoid processed meat and meat that has hidden carbs or sugary sweet sauces.
VEGETABLE SLICES – your local salad bar or deli will have a variety of sliced prepared vegetables you can buy, then add some kind of healthy fat such as cheese, cream cheese, or mayonnaise.
FISH– keep tinned/canned tuna in the pantry or your desk. You can quickly add some mayo to make tuna mayonnaise.
BERRIES – frozen berries are cheaper than fresh and you can always keep some on hand in your freezer. Place some frozen berries in a leak-proof pot, add some full-fat cream or coconut cream. Ultimate Guide To Carbs In Fruit
AVOCADO – are an amazing source of healthy fats, vitamins, and nutrients. Cut in half and sprinkle with salt and pepper. I can even teach you how to freeze avocados.
OLIVES – why not make a Ziploc bag or pot with cheese, olives and nuts.
DARK CHOCOLATE – always choose the lowest sugar and the highest cacao chocolate. If you don’t like dark chocolate YET, gradually increase the cacao % each time you buy a block. And because it is slightly bitter, you will only want 1 or 2 squares to satisfy.
