I follow THM and not Keto but I know a lot of my readers are the opposite. Many snacks are compliant for both meal plans so I wanted to share a few with you that we can all enjoy. If you’re trying to stay faithful to your diet but junk food cravings are gnawing at you full-force, here are some Keto friendly snack alternatives to help keep you on track with your goals.
Pick four of your favorite nuts and shake 1/4 cup of each together. Almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, macademia nuts and Brazil nuts are all low carb. Pumpkin seeds may also fit into your mix.
Next, pick one or two unsweetened “sweets” and add a tablespoon of each. Dried berries (cranberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc) or coconut chips mixed with cacao nibs may be enough to tame the craving for a candy bar.
The recommended serving size of nuts is a 1/4 cup, so be sure to save the rest for later.
If you despise kale in your salad, don’t walk away just yet. It’s an acquired taste on the dinner table, but it absolutely works as a crunchy potato chip replacement.
Strip off the leafy parts, wash them and pat dry. Then, toss them with a tablespoon of olive oil, coating thoroughly. Lay them on a baking sheet and dust with your favorite savory seasonings. Finally, pop them in the oven at 300 degrees for twenty minutes, flipping half-way through. Cool for ten minutes, then enjoy.
With only five grams of carbs in a one cup serving, pop corn can be a great snack if you don’t sugar it up. Salted and seasoned popcorn can be included as an ingredient in Trail Mix, or you can pair it with melted nut butter. If you want to stay traditional, adding butter is compatible with eating keto Carlstadt NJ.
A hard boiled egg or avacado may be enough to tame your hunger. Celery sticks are satisfyingly crunchy, and tomatoes and olives can be muched guilt-free.
A diet doesn’t have to mean giving up on enjoying your food. When you stop equating “bad” with “tasty” it opens up a whole new world of snacking.
