7 Low Carbohydrate Snacks That You Can Carry Around

Aug 20, 2008
What are the low carbohydrate snacks that you can carry when you are out? In the present times, people have become so choosy and very calorie conscious about eating food.

Maintaining a low carbohydrate diet can be difficult when you are hungry and dinner is hours away. At the same time if you are away from home it becomes more difficult. Often, you can easily find chips, candy, or other carbohydrate loaded snacks. Unfortunately such snacks will not keep the hungrier away until the next mealtime. Keep reading as you'll get the perfect solution in such situations.

The market is offering plenty of low carbohydrate snacks today, but sadly not all of them are healthy. Many a time, alcohol sugar is used in the preparation which sometimes makes digestion difficult, thus giving rise to gas problem. Ideally, a low carbohydrate snack should have protein, healthy fat and some fiber. Are you confused? Just carry one or some of these healthy snacks the next time when you are out, and you will never have to risk spoiling your diet again.

* Pack a handful of un-shelled peanuts in a zip closed plastic sandwich bag for an anytime snack. The shelling of the peanuts will help you slow down your consumption, and make you work for your snack. Experience it yourself and you will be delighted.

* Soy Beanits deserve a place in your food store as they have a taste similar to peanuts- nutty, clean, crisp and tasty. They are much lower in fat and are made from soybeans and a little soybean oil. Pack it in a plastic bag or carry them whenever you're out.

* Keto classic corn tortilla chips have a just sweet enough taste enveloped in a light powder of real sea salt. One bite of a keto chip and you will think you've arrived in low carbohydrate snacks heaven.

* You can make cake and biscuits by substituting Soya flour, Soya bran and ground almonds for wheat flour and sweetener for sugar. Chocolates can also be made by mixing artificial sweetener and cocoa powder into unsalted butter, dip nuts and then set in the freezer. Is cake, biscuits or chocolates difficult to carry around?

* Spicy walnuts can make up for an afternoon snack, so just pack a small handful of the nuts in a plastic sandwich bag for a fabulous spicy snack. Make your own spicy walnuts by spreading walnut halves on a plate and spray them lightly with a vegetable oil spray. Sprinkle the nuts with your favorite natural seasoning mix and let the nuts air dry and store in a sealed container, ready to pack.

* Dry roasted pumpkin seeds with natural seasonings (Pumpkorn) are the alternative low carbohydrate snacks that tastes at least as good as peanuts, popcorn, potato chips, corn chips. Pumpkorn is healthy and ideal for high protein, low carbohydrate diets.

* For a filling, Mediterranean style snack, serve a portion of hummus in a covered plastic container. Load a layer of fresh red or green pepper slices on top and pack the container in a lunch bag to snack around during your busy day. The pepper slices can be used to scoop up the hummus when you are ready to snack.

Making low carbohydrate snacks interesting is important if low carbohydrate diet plan is going to be permanent way of life for you. Once you know the tricks or have lost your sugar addiction you would not even feel that low carbohydrate versions are that difficult to follow. Hope you enjoyed my low carbohydrate snacks and now it is your turn to follow them or carry them in your snack bag for your snacking convenience.
