It seems like everyone is trying the keto diet. Influencers, celebrities, and your mom’s hairdresser are trying out keto. Like every other diet plan on the market, it’s not always easy to maintain over time. To help you out, here are the top 5 keto friendly snacks to get you through your day.
Keto Friendly Snacks #5 – Cherry Tomatoes
The only fruit on this list and the easiest to smash in your purse, cherry tomatoes surprisingly make a great keto snack. Fruit can be substantial in carbohydrates, but this refreshing bite has a small amount in comparison. Paired well with fresh mozzarella or on its own, this is a great snack to grab and go.
Keto Friendly Snacks #4 – Dark Chocolate
The sweetest item to make it onto this list and one of my personal favorites.
Best when made from 70% cocoa and sweetened with stevia, dark chocolate is a great quick snack and can be easily paired with other items like nuts. Don’t eat a lot of it though as the carbohydrates can become excessive.
Keto Friendly Snacks #3 – Nuts
Immature jokes aside, this snack is the easiest to carry and has the most nutritional value. They are full of protein, omega-6, and omega-3 fatty acids. Be careful to avoid nuts like peanuts, cashews, and pistachios as they are high in carbohydrates.
#2 – String Cheese
This kid-friendly snack is great for adults too. Filled with fat and protein, it will pack a punch and keep you fuller for longer. Make sure you find a full-fat version with minimal processing & no added carbs or fillers.
#1 – Beef Jerky
This easy-to-go snack can be found anywhere from your local grocer to a highway gas station. Packed full of protein, beef jerky is a great way to add some meat to your keto diet without the hassle of cooking and cleaning. Try to find ones with little to no added ingredients or any added sugar.
