Did you ever think you’d get the green light to snack on bacon? Well, enter the ketogenic diet!
If you’re reading this article, you’re probably already learning that the keto diet isn’t as hard as it might initially look. Maybe you’re starting to reap the health benefits. There are so many delicious foods you can eat while remaining in ketosis.
Planning keto-friendly meals is key, but sometimes you’ll need a bite in between. Read on, and then treat yourself with this list of ten delicious and easy keto diet snacks!
1. Veggies and Dip
Your blank canvas for this super easy snack is any “dippable” low-carb veggie: think cucumber, zucchini, radishes, celery, or bell peppers.
Then, throw together a creamy keto-friendly dip. Cream cheese is a great base for this. Mix in some keto mayo and blend to soften, and season your dip as desired. Fresh dill, cracked pepper, garlic, or avocado are all perfect dip mix-ins.
2. Cheese Crisps
This might be one of the easiest (and most delicious!) options on this list.
Start with 12 ounces of shredded parmesan. You can mix in a bit of seasoning if you’d like — cracked black pepper or smoked paprika are great additions. Mound each tablespoon of cheese onto a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for three to five minutes or until the edges are browning.
Let them cool and then devour.
3. Tuna Salad on Cucumber
Start with water-packed tuna and mix in low-carb mayonnaise, a bit of finely diced red onion, and some chopped celery.
Spread the tuna salad on cucumber slices for the perfect protein-packed snack or a light, healthy lunch.
4. Peanut or Almond Butter and Celery
Another easy, go-to snack! Start with peanut or almond butter. Spread it on celery for some crunch — or just eat it off the spoon. We don’t judge!
Make sure you’re buying 100% natural, no-sugar-added nut butter.
5. Hard Boiled Eggs
Eggs are a great, healthy keto staple, and hard boiling is the perfect way to make eggs easy to eat on the go.
Boil a dozen at a time and keep them in the fridge. They are perfect on their own with a dash of salt and pepper.
You can also mix the yolks with a bit of mayo and eat them along with low-carb veggies for an easy, light meal.
6. Keto-Friendly Collagen Powder (in Coffee!)
A protein shake or powder added to low-carb, unsweetened almond milk is an option, but we suggest taking it up a level by adding your beneficial collagen powder to hot or cold-brewed coffee.
Try a collagen powder (we love Keto Collagen Cacao by Grandma’s Keto) mixed into your morning coffee for an indulgent-tasting treat that will help maintain your energy well into the day.
7. Fat Bombs
The name alone makes them sound amazing. Fat bombs are a keto staple and the perfect, filling pick-me-up between meals.
In a nutshell, fat bombs are made from a healthy fat base (like coconut oil or almond butter) mixed with scrumptious add-ins like cacao, dark chocolate, peppermint extract, almonds, or chia seeds.
Make a big batch and then store the bombs in your fridge when you need a super quick and delicious energy boost.
8. Bacon and Egg Cups
Yes, a snack with bacon. Need we say more?
Use bacon (be sure to buy sugar-free bacon!) to form “cups” by lining the inside of muffin tins with it. Then fill the tins with eggs, spinach, and a dash of cheese. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through.
This is another snack that’s perfect to be made ahead in a big batch and then frozen.
9 – Meat and Cheese Roll-Ups
To make these roll-ups, start with a thinly sliced cold cut. Great options for meats are deli turkey, ham, or roast beef.
Spread your meat with a thin layer of cream cheese or a slice of cheddar. Roll it up and snack away!
10 – Guacamole
Avocados are amazingly healthy and a great snack on their own, but making them into guacamole makes snack time feel like a party. Simply mash avocados with cilantro, lime juice, salsa, red onion, and tomato.
Guacamole makes a great side, spread, or dip. Yum!
