Three Great Low Carb Snacks

By Randi Morse

Living a low carbohydrate style can be an extremely healthy way to live. There are so many people who choose to live this lifestyle now that you can easily find low-carb recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  A problem arises, however, when you start to look for low-carb snacks. It didn't take me very long to get sick of cheese sticks and veggie platters, so I went on a quest to find amazing low carb snacks, and these are some of my favorite results.

Bone Broth

OK, so the idea of broth being a snack is a little unusual, but hear me out. When I get cold during the winter months, I want a snack that can warm me up. Since I don't drink coffee anymore, mainly because of the insane amount of sugar I put in it, I went searching for a warm liquid substitute. Bone broth was an amazing find. Unlike regular broth, bone broth has more protein in it because it is cooked a great deal longer. You can make your own bone broth, but it is also easy to find commercially prepared broth at the store. This is one of my favorite snacks during a cold day, I just heat it up in the microwave and drink it out of a mug. It warms me up and craves my snacking desires as well.

Mixed Nuts

Those days that I'm looking to just snack all the time is when I reach for the nuts. Nuts are filled with protein, and there is even some research being done that is showing that a diet rich in nuts provides a reduced risk of heart disease. You can buy pre-packaged mixed nuts or you can create your own mix. Simply purchase individual packages of your favorite nuts including things like pistachios, walnuts, and cashews, and mix them together. Don't be afraid to add other nutritious additions to your mix such as sunflower seeds, cacao nibs, or coconut. My personal snack mix has unsalted peanuts, pistachios, cashews, almonds, and sunflower seeds. 

Fat Bombs

This may be the ultimate in low-carb, keto-friendly dessert snacks. A fat bomb is the name given to an energy bite that uses a fat like cream cheese, nut butter, avocado, or coconut oil as a base. You then add other ingredients to it and roll it into little balls. Dark chocolate and peanut butter are extremely popular but in reality, you are only limited by your imagination and taste buds.
