Low Carb Keto Snack Options!

Low Carb Keto Snack Options!


hey you guys Jodi Brown here and I just wanted to come in this afternoon very quickly and share some snack ideas because it is just that time in the afternoon I feel like the two to four range just seems to be a very common time that snacking becomes prevalent like I feel like for a lot of people that’s the time in the afternoon that maybe you don’t feel like you have as much energy so you’re immediately go to food or coffee or whatever it might be now I will say that I have way more energy now than I did even before kids can talk about that at another time but I do still feel like in the afternoons a lot of times I kind of get that hankering to want to snack so I just wanted to show you some things that I have around my house right now and it’s probably actually gonna need to go to the store sometime soon but I just grabbed a few things that I have that sometimes I will snack on and these are very very basic this is nothing elaborate so you’re probably gonna have these things and maybe you can use them now just to kind of get you through to the next meal instead of some of those other choices that maybe you have around the house for your family for your kids whatever it might be I know for me we have like the goldfish and we have all sorts of stuff that I don’t need to be eating honestly they’re not even the best next for my kids but we have them and I need options so that I stay away from those and are not tempted to just nibble because there’s little tiny nibbles y’all they add up so we want to stay away from them so very quickly just a couple of things and some of these are not going to be strict keto they’re gonna be more low-carb keto ish because that’s how I am that’s how I roll so first thing pork Ron’s super simple work for ones that you can use even on top of like like car seats up on top of salads there and wanna rest and sometimes yes I will just snack on them there are some that have different seasonings that are really good by different brands the one thing I’ll say about those just make sure to read the label because sometimes seasonings will have things in them that increase the carbs that we might not anticipate so my recommendation would be just to make sure and y’all read the label so these are plain there’s nothing fancy about these and they have zero carbs six grams of fat so delicious it’s like there was a barbecue flavor and then like a cracked pepper if you find those y’all they are really good okay another thing that I have our ovens now you’ve got to be careful with nuts nuts can add up quickly also I love them but they can add up quickly I love almonds macadamia nuts are a great snack choice for keto but again you’ve got to watch the serving size different people these almonds are for 1/4 a cup they are 2 net grams of carbs for net carb grams however you want to say it but so that can add up quickly if you eat a lot of them that can add up so make sure and check but nuts are a great option same thing with peanut butter so I get the natural so that doesn’t have those added sugars but you know this stuff can add up quickly and I have an issue with nut butters I love peanut butter and I love almond butter and I will wait way too much of it I will eat way too much of it if I don’t if I allow myself so just make sure again to read the label and make sure to account this into your macros I know that if you were following strict keto a lot of you would probably say no to the peanut butter which is fine I say I love it and I’m going to enjoy it but I’m gonna need to enjoy it in moderation to make sure that things don’t go overboard so that is my tip with peanut butter make sure you go natural and that it doesn’t have like the added sugar and sweetener okay so next thing pepperoni not only do I use this for to top off pizzas but sometimes I will just grab some of these and some cheese cut up some slices of cheese and I’ll just like put two pepperonis piece of cheese in the middle pop it in for a snack so this is Colby Monterey Jack cheese but hey whatever type of cheese and a tip on this block cheese is best and then shred it up because there are some it’s like cornstarch ingredients in the shredded packs of cheese that particularly if you are strict keto you’re not gonna want and honestly there’s just stuff in those bags of cheese that are just not good in general this is a change that my family has made very very recently so we have a block of this cheese mozzarella and cheddar in the refrigerator and now we just shred up what we need or cut it like I said pepperoni cheese another idea is bacon just bacon bits or pieces of bacon can be a great snack as well so like I said cheese is on hand now I will say if you are sensitive to Dairy Dairy can cause inflammation in some people so you just need to know yourself a note that if cheese dairy is a part of keto that you want to have in your lifestyle and how it works for your body okay next up I do like fruit in the way that I get around that is with berries blackberries blueberries strawberries rabbit raspberries or my goat cheese some of those are better than others so do keep that in mind again for me it’s all about just keeping it in within reason and moderation of what works for me and my body on my keto and low carb lifestyle but berries you want to stay away from bananas apples oranges pineapple watermelon things that have higher sugar content if you eat them make sure to account them into your day and for what it would what it would account in to your macros okay next up I have quest bars some people love these some of the people hate these I have certain ones that I love and nope that’s gonna be backwards for you white chocolate raspberry and the birthday cake and the new one chocolate doughnut they are some of my favorites these are not something that I recommend having on a daily basis of having a whole bar every single day as part of your daily routine this is more of an occasional snack or maybe even have a third of it or half of it instead of the whole these obviously they are Baruchel so they are not going to have these bars are just not all-natural so you want to keep that in mind and they do have down here at like the last ingredient sucralose so it is in there and that is not one of the best sweeteners so I love them I enjoy them I use them as needed but this you likely do not want to be a part of like every single day for lunch or for a snack I’m gonna grab a quest bar just use it in moderation and have it fit your lifestyle okay then I also always keep these guys on hand low-carb tortilla wraps so these I will use like on tacos like we might have tacos tonight or tomorrow night or I will actually take these and cut them up put some olive oil and seasoning on top and bake them in the oven at 250 for like six seven minutes and or until they’re crispy whatever works for you maybe is 350 anyway super easy I keep these on hand it can also be used with wraps for lunch put some meat in there or cheese and veggies and there you go and then something that I love y’all I love chocolate and I’m all about a lifestyle so I need it to not feel restricted and to not feel like I’m following a diet so that this is a lifestyle for me and I have found that I really enjoy lilies dark chocolates I used to use Hershey’s sugar-free and I actually still have some in the pantry but I have learned that they have I can’t remember which one but it’s one of the sweeteners that is not the best for you had to be careful with the sweeteners because with some of them your body will utilize them as sugar and you want you don’t want that you do not want that similarly it’s one of the ones that I love and when I look at the back of this just so that you know when you’re looking at your net carb so it has nine total net carbs but four grams of dietary fiber and three of erythritol so take that away in a serving size of sixty of these tips it’s gonna have two net carbs yes please sign me up so these I have as well and then a completely this is like my weekend treat it is not strict feeder at all it is not the healthiest at all it does not actually have probably too much nutritional value at all but sometimes what a sweet treat and so I will take packets of sugar-free pudding and I will use heavy cream instead of almond milk so that it’s like you’re using just like you’re making pudding with heavy cream instead of milk and when you whip that up you’re gonna get like a mousse and is delicious and I’ll sprinkle some a couple of the lilies on top again I do not recommend doing that every day y’all I’m not saying that that is the greatest option is not the lowest lowest lowest carb option either cuz you have to look at the back of those sugar free packets they are not the lowest lowest in carbs so your sugar free but not the lowest and carp so you want to make sure to account for that type of sweet treat but that’s just an idea those are some ideas that I hope will give you something to nibble on instead of your kids lunch or snack or whatever it might be so that you can stay on track and reach your goals so I hope everybody is having one we’ll start to the week and a happy Monday and we will chat soon bye y’all
