You may be living a low-carb lifestyle to lose weight or to manage your health. No matter what your reasons are for eating low-carb, finding the right snacks is important to your eating plan. It may be challenging at first to come up with tasty snack ideas or to find healthy options at the supermarket. Armed with the right recipes, you can make your own snacks and nosh between meals with confidence.
A good low-carb snack has a maximum of 15 grams of carbs per serving. Many pre-packaged snacks are loaded with sugar, sodium, high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, and unhealthy fats. You should aim to stay within the recommended daily guideline of less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. When you make your own snacks, you control the ingredients.
For example, snacking on organic dark chocolate that’s at least 70 percent cacao is a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Limit your consumption of artificial sweeteners and sugary alcohols, because some may not be low-carb. Some people may also experience digestive side effects from these foods.
