Delicious and healthy keto snacks

A small guide that helps me survive.

Who doesn’t like snacks

Popular snacks foods that you are used to are a thing of the past. However, there are some great keto friendly alternatives that you will absolutely love.  If you’ve found yourself frustrated trying to ward off that between meal hunger. Check out these low-carb snack options that are healthy and delicious.

Coffee

I cannot live without my coffee.  Drinking it black is completely calorie free and carb free.

Drinking it black is not for me.  I was using Atkins Shakes to make smoothies and it occurred to me “I wonder what this would taste like in coffee?” 

Delicious

I like the creamy vanilla or the french vanilla. I have also used the milk chocolate one, caramel cafe, and the moca. I like the vanilla best.

In the place of heavy cream, or regular creamer just use the Atkins shake and flavor to your taste.  Typically half or a little under half an Atkins Protein-rich shake will flavor a standard cup of coffee very well.

Vanilla Chai smoothie

I like this smoothie as an afternoon or after dinner snack.  I use half the amount listed for a full smoothie as a snack.  If I was to use this as an on the go meal replacement then I would use the full serving amounts.

In your Magic Bullet or blender of choice, use the 16 oz. mixer cup.

Atkins Protein Shake, empty entire contents of 11 fl oz. container. 2 net carbs.
I use creamy vanilla, you can choose your flavor and adjust the net carbs.

Add one scoop (32g) of the Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal Vanilla Chai. 1 net carb.
I choose the vanilla along with the vanilla Atkins for a nice creamy flavor.

Fill with ice, to get your desired thickness by adding ice.  Remember, you can always add ice.  Start with a little but until you get the recipe you like down.

Rebel Low Carb Ice Cream

I never thought the day would come where I could tell someone that ice cream was diet food.   Muuuuaaahahahahaha.  That day is now.  This ice cream, in my opinion is better than traditional ice cream.

It’s not as heavy on your tummy, doesn’t leave you feeling guilty.

Rebel Salted Caramel is my current favorite.

Available Flavors

Carb count is for the ENTIRE PINT!

Between 4g to 8g of net carbs for the entire pint. See flavors for more information.

Atkins Protein-Rich Meal Bar

I will use this as two snacks, mostlikely in one day.  When I get the need for a chocolate fix I take Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar and break it in half and enjoy the other half a bit later.

Keto friendly, tasty rich chocolate and creamy peanut butter.  Oh there are other flavors, but this one and the Atkins Chocolate Covered Peanuts.  Great snack for a movie.

Available in different Flavors

Tajin & Avocado – A spicy love story

I’ve used Tajin for pretty much most of my life while I was growing up.  I’d put it on cucumber, tomatoes, tacos, watermelon, lots of stuff.  Little did I know, it was zero grams of carbs. Teamed up with Avocado the “keto superfruit”  Great for a snack.

Avocado is not only packed with healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but they are low in carbs.  Awesomely low. I use the measurement of:

1 Medium Avocado 3 net carbs
1/3 of the avocado is 1 net carb

What you will need

1 Medium ripe Avocado

Tajin

OPTIONAL: If you like really spicy they have habanero flavor as well.

Pork Rind Nachos

Not so fast. Snack nachos?  Yep.

On a microwave safe plate, arrange your pork rinds evenly.

Sprinkle the 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese (1.4g net carbs), or your cheese of choice and adjust the carb count for your choice onto and into the pork rinds.

Microwave on high between 10 seconds to 45 seconds depending on how melted you like your cheese.  Remember these are pork rinds not tortilla chips so they may be a little soggy the longer you nuke them.  Trial and error my friends.

Take the plate out and top with bacon bits, 1/2 cup tomatoes (2.5g net carbs), 1 medium jalapeno pepper sliced up (1g net carbs)

Enjoy

OPTIONAL: Top with Tajin for an extra spicy taste.

What you will need

2-3 oz. of pork rinds, about two heafty handfulls. (0g net carbs)

1/2 cup diced tomatoes (2.5g net carbs)

1 medium jalapeno pepper sliced (1g net carbs)

Chopped Bacon (0g net carbs)

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (1.4g net carbs)

OPTIONAL: For some spice add, Tajin. If you like really spicy they have habanero flavor as well.
