If you have recently started a keto diet, one of the things you may be confused about is the type of low-carb snacks you can eat on a typical keto diet.

After all, you do not want to destroy your keto diet by eating high-carb snacks.

 

Beef jerky — If you eat meat, beef jerky can be an excellent low-carb snack for a keto diet. It is high in protein, often low in fat and very tasty.

Just be sure you do not buy jerky with added sugar as this will cause the carb content to skyrocket.

 

Celery — Celery is not only a low-carb snack but also a low-calorie one as well.

You can even dip it into your favorite dip or sauce to add more flavor.

 

Eggs — A boiled egg is high in nutrition yet has zero carbohydrates. If you add a small amount of salt, you increase the flavor.

You can also make deviled eggs, or even cut a couple of boiled eggs into slices and drizzle with your favorite low-carb sauce.

 

Fat Snax brownies — A company called Fat Snax makes amazing gluten-free, low-carb brownie snax.

Rich, decadent and delicious, these brownies have less than 0.3 carbs in a serving yet, when you eat them, you would never guess.

 

Avocados — One of the most healthy low-carb snacks for anyone on a keto diet is avocados.

One avocado is loaded with nutrition, but make sure you do not eat an entire fruit as they have enough calories to cancel out your keto efforts. If you stick to just a couple of slices, however, they are so high in fat they can be satisfying as a quick, healthy snack.

 

Sunflower seeds — These are one of the best and easiest low-carb snacks for a keto diet that you can eat.

A one ounce packet of sunflower seeds has less than 175 calories and only 4 grams of carbs. You can also carry them in your purse or pocket, which makes them a perfect snack for anyone on the road and not wanting to ruin their diet with fast food.

 

String cheese — When you were a kid, your mother probably gave you a couple of pieces of string cheese as a snack. Fast forward a few decades and those same pieces of string cheese are perfect for anyone on a keto diet.

Just make sure they are made from full-fat cheese as anything that is low-fat will have added carbs to balance out the fat.

 

These are just some of the best low-carb snacks for anyone on a keto diet. If you start with these, you will find it easy to stick to your diet even when on the run.
