The Keto way of life is not an easy one to follow especially in the beginning when you cannot find any snacks to eat. And after some time spent on this diet you’re going to come to the realization that there is not much need for snacks, despite the fact that you crave them. And, the longer you’re doing the Ketogenic diet the desire for snacks decreases more and more.
Peanuts and almonds are one of the worst keto snacks you can eat while on Ketogenic diet simply because of the fact that they consume a large number of carbs. If you decide to consume some, you should definitely take a small amount. While you are in the green zone it is okay!
If you think that you are in need of some Keto Snack Ideas than this countdown of the top 10 Keto Snacks is the perfect one for you! Either way, you shouldn’t forget to count them into your macro numbers. Because you can easily lose track when you are snacking in the beginning. And even though you don’t realize it, by counting your food intake you’ll easily find out what foods you need to eliminate and which ones to limit.
Here Are The Snacks!
1. Low Carb Cheese Crackers
This snack is amazing for people going through a Keto Diet. If you don’t feel like baking tho, you can also try and put a piece of cheese on a baking sheet and put it in the oven. This is going to turn into a crispy cheese. Add some jalapeno on it for a better flavor and VOILA, the perfect Keto Snack!
2. Baked Pepperoni Slices
Same as the previous recipe, just instead of cheese you should put some pepperoni slices on a baking sheet and put them in the oven, wait until they’re crispy enough for you, and take them out!
3. Zucchini Parmesan Chips
I’ve heard of a few different approaches to making this snack. If you’d want the zucchini to be crunchier, you should cut it thinner. This snack is best when topped with some Parmesan. Your family is going to LOVE it!
4. Pork Rinds
Believe it or not, I used to hate pork rinds. It’s amazing how much your taste buds change when you ditch carbs and sugar. You have a new appreciation for foods you once did not like at all. Here’s a good tip. Purchase pork rinds from a Meat Market fresh. They have a whole new flavor and texture that is really pretty darn good. You can season them yourself or buy already seasoned pork rind bags. I tend to buy the salt and vinegar pork rinds or the spicy pork rinds. My husband prefers the BBQ flavored pork rinds. You will want to have some pork rinds in your pantry anyway because I can almost guarantee you will cook with them at some point.
5. Deviled eggs
You can also make some plain hard-boiled eggs. These are an amazing snack which is good for your Keto Diet. Put some crispy bacon on top of these deviled eggs and get the best taste possible!
Take a small slice of cheese and microwave it for about 30 seconds or so. This average-looking piece of cheese is going to turn into tasty and crunchy goodness when taken out of the microwave.
7. Lily’s chocolate or Lily’s chocolate chips
There are some days I get in the mood for a sweet snack or a sweet treat. My chocolate treat is either Lily’s chocolate or ChocZero. Both are excellent ideas. I love it so much that I do have to limit myself. Typically, I take about four squares of chocolate and put the rest away. If I don’t do this, I could end up eating the whole thing without even realizing it. My husband swears the Keto Peanut Butter cookies I make are a snack but I call them a dessert. Keto Desserts is a whole other list! He disagrees.
8. Toasted Cloud Bread Topped With Cream Cheese
This idea is not so bad after all, especially for the people who are just starting the Ketogenic Diet!
9. Cheese sticks!
The Pepperoni or Prosciutto wrapped cheese sticks are an amazing and no prep snack to take for work. And even though they sound kinda boring, I really really love them!
10. Salami with cream cheese and peppers or pickles
It is the last one on the list, but if I were to rank this by popularity, this snack concept would be the first one on the rank! This concoction is an all-time favorite with every single person in my family. I will sometimes pack a few in our lunch boxes too! It can get a bit messy when you pack it with pickles though because of the juices. All you do is take a piece of salami and spread cream cheese on it. Top it with a slice of pickle, pepperoncini, banana pepper, or jalapeno! Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! 5 Stars! Seriously good! This one is a must-try!
