One of the hardest things new Keto-dieters face is replacing high-carb snacks with keto-friendly versions. Let’s face it, those sugar-laden carb-y snacks are the go-to pick-me-ups for many of us throughout a busy day. A coffee and doughnut mid-morning, a packet of salty crisps in the afternoon. Snacks fill the gap between meals when we’re busy, and need something convenient to fuel us.
So what happens when you decide to follow a Keto diet? All those carb-rich snacks are now off-limits. Keto-friendly snacks can seem impossible to find and difficult to prepare.
What then are healthy Keto snacks, and very importantly - do they exist in a convenient package?
What Are Healthy Keto Snacks?
As you’re probably aware, Keto snacks need to be high in good fats, have a moderate amount of protein and little to no sugars to keep you in Ketosis. Carb-laden snacks that typically provide convenient snack options are completely off-limits.
You’ll be used to grabbing a packet of something to fill those energy dips throughout the day. At first, it’ll take time and planning to discover new ways of eating, particularly when it comes to finding suitable Keto snacks to keep you nourished and satisfied.
To make life a little easier we’ve come up with 7 nutrient-dense Keto snack ideas to keep hunger away, and encourage you on your Keto journey:
Brimming with vitamins and healthy fats, keto-friendly sushi rolls are sure to fix any mid-meal cravings. Use high-quality fish and low-carb veggies such as peppers, cucumber and avocado. Wrap it up in a nori seaweed sheet and drizzle with a little olive oil and lemon juice for a delicious pick-me-up.
Keto Trail Mix
Think nuts, shredded coconut, and seeds. Find as many different varieties of nuts and seeds as possible to provide a versatile and yummy snack. The good fats in the nuts and seeds will satisfy your hunger between meals, and this is an easy-to-prepare and easy-to-eat snack that won’t require your best culinary skills to sort.
Another grabbable snack, flavoured olives. Bursting with healthy fats and vitamins, olives can be bought prepared with a variety of different flavours to keep your tastebuds excited. Be sure to check for any added sugars that would make this otherwise keto-friendly snack unsuitable.
Easy to prepare, eggs are full of protein and provide healthy fats too. They’re a simple winner that can easily be snacked on, and give you valuable nutrients that will keep you satisfied between meals. You might choose to be selective where you munch them though - your colleagues may not thank you for the egg smell in your shared space!
Veggie Sticks and Dip
Cucumber, pepper, and celery sticks served with a guacamole dip or your favourite nut butter is a tasty and filling snack. Easy to make and quick to get ready when hunger sets in. The vitamins and minerals in the veg, along with the healthy fats of avocado or nut butter, provide a complete Keto-friendly bite to eat.
A must-have Keto pick, the fat bomb. Popular for its cake-like consistency and taste, without the carb and all the fat. The fat bomb is perfectly Keto. A doughy ball consistency that requires no baking, made up of a fatty base such as coconut oil or peanut butter, combined with a Keto-friendly flour like coconut or almond flour. Flavoured and textured with an appropriate sweetener like Stevia, plus cocoa powder, seeds, or coconut. There are many inventive and delicious combinations. This one is sure to help you forget all about the sugar-laden doughnuts that used to get you through to lunch.
A large smoothie is very filling and gives a bunch of vitamins and minerals in one easy-to-digest drink. Smoothies are typically laden with high-sugar fruits, so make sure you only use Keto-based ingredients in your smoothie mix. Keto versions include greens such as spinach, kale and cucumber, some lemon juice for zing and good fats like unsweetened coconut or almond milk, and milled flax seeds. Your body will thank you for the nutrient-dense pick-up and you’ll feel full and happy right up until meal-time.
