Snacks can be a problem. The afternoon cravings for salty or sweet things can overcome you. When you are trying to stay on track, especially if you are doing a low carb path, this can be a hard time. I mean there is really only so much low carb beef jerky you can eat. So here are some things we enjoy, not only for snacking but for eating a snacky style lunch.
Celery is a great option because it actually has negative carbs. It has more fiber than carbs so it actually is one of those things you can enjoy often. Crunchy and delicious but even better when you stuff it with some cheese! I have used a pub style cheese that is sharp cheddar flavored with horseradish. This has 2 net carbs per 2 tablespoons of cheese so it makes a great choice for snacking! You can also stuff your celery with cream cheese or no sugar, natural almond or peanut butter if you like that instead!
Lunchmeat roll ups are a great option as well. take slices of salami, sandwich pepperoni, ham or smoked turkey and smear with some softened cream cheese and roll up! You can even put a pickle spear in the middle for a more hearty version of this delicious snack. This is something I used to send to school with my girls in their lunches and they loved them. Steamed asparagus is also a great option inside the roll up as well!
My favorite, quick and easy snack is the deconstructed deviled egg. I do this because it is fast and I don’t have to go to the trouble of mixing up a couple deviled eggs when I want the taste of that to enjoy. I peel and cut a hard boiled egg in half. Dollop on a teaspoon or so of good quality mayo. Not Miracle whip! That’s a no-no on a low carb diet because of the sugar. Then squeeze on a bit of your favorite mustard. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy.
At first when Rick told me to share the latter in a video I thought he was crazy. But maybe you haven’t thought of it so I thought why not?
I have also included a handful of both black and green olives on my platter as well as a Kosher pickle spear. These are also great options when you want a crunchy salty snack to enjoy but have had your fill of pork rinds. It is really important to include fermented foods into your low carb diet to help maintain your electrolyte balance in your body. Items such as fermented pickles, sauerkraut and kim chee can help you do this.
I hope this gives you some good, solid ideas for snacking, especially with Super Bowl coming up. You can make up a big platter like this, but go the extra step and actually make the deviled eggs! This can be a great way to stay on track and not feel deprived when celebrating with friends and family on game day or any day.
I hope you give this a try sometime soon and I hope you love it!
