Sticking to a diet can be challenging at times, but especially when you are living an active life!
Whether you are traveling for work or just enjoying a busy weekend on the run, there are healthy options for you.
Let’s take a look at five low-carb snacks for you to enjoy on the go!
Crispy Parmesan Tomato Chips
Want a low-carb snack packed full of flavor? Crispy parmesan tomato chips are just that!
What makes these so low-carb, of course, is that instead of potatoes like most chips, your “chip” is a tomato!
Beefsteak tomatoes are sliced and prepared using a combination of five ingredients to bring you a unique chip.
Ingredients include grated parmesan cheese, fresh chopped parsley, olive oil and sea salt.
The end result is a tasty snack that is healthy too!
If you are on a road trip and walk into a gas station hungry, you will have a lot of unhealthy options.
But among those will be an underrated low-carb snack — beef jerky.
But choose wisely. A lot of these options are loaded with added sugar and salt. A great way to avoid these added ingredients is to make your own!
In under two hours, you can make your own homemade beef jerky that is not just low-carb, it’s zero-carb!
There are many different ways to eat kale. In a salad, as a side vegetable in part of a bigger meal, or even as a healthy snack.
The health benefits of kale are well-documented. Kale is low in calories, high in fiber and also includes high levels of iron and vitamins.
If you’ve got 20 minutes to spare, an oven, some olive oil and a head of kale you are well on your way to making a low-carb snack!
Once kale is cut up, you bake it for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees and as the edges begin to brown, remove them from the oven and let them cool.
Pack them in your lunch or bring them on your next trip. They make a great alternative to crispy parmesan tomato chips!
Raspberries & Blueberries
Want some low-carb snack alternatives that don’t require any prep at all?
While fruits can be loaded with carbohydrates because of their sugar content, that’s not always the case.
Raspberries and blueberries are low-carb options and are also loaded with vitamins, potassium, and fiber.
Peanut Butter and Celery
Keeping with that “no-prep” theme, adding peanut butter to celery is a great low-carb snack option.
Celery is vitamin B6, C, and K, as well as potassium and folate. It also a good source of fiber for your diet.
On the other hand, adding some peanut butter to celery is a tasty way to add protein and keep you full.
You might have had this snack when you were a kid but the good news is, some things never change.
It’s still a very healthy snack!
