Also known as keto, the ketogenic diet encourages food that is low in carbohydrates and high in fat. The science behind the diet is to reduce the intake of carbs and replace them with fat. This will put the body into a metabolic state known as ketosis. This state leads the body to become more efficient at burning fat stores for energy. If you’re a fitness enthusiast, you may well be monitoring your fat loss with a body fat analyzer. Today we are going to discuss 8 keto diet snacks to try.
1) Veggie Sticks Paired With Guacamole
This classic snack never goes out of style. Nearly any type of raw vegetable tastes great coupled with guacamole. Ideas to consider include red bell pepper sticks, carrots, jicama, and broccoli. You can easily make your guacamole by simply mashing an avocado and mixing it with diced red onion, jalapeño, and lime juice. Avocado is a great choice for those on the keto diet because it is high in healthy fats and can also fill you up.
2) Mixed Nuts
This keto staple delivers a host of health benefits while also keeping you satiated. Nuts are also extremely portable, making them an easy snack to eat on the go. They are packed with protein and heart-healthy fats, making them an ideal choice for when you want to stay full longer. You can eat nuts plain or mix them with a variety of additions such as sunflower seeds and coconut to make a keto-friendly trail mix. If you’re looking to up your protein intake, even more, chop up a genoa salame into bite-size pieces and add them to the mix.
Nuts are a no-prep tasty treat that provides essential vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and vitamin E.
Mix the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet with a keto plan for an explosion of flavor. Olives make great keto diet snacks because of their abundance of heart-healthy fats. The high amounts of vitamin E and fiber in olives also reduce inflammation in the body. You can choose to eat your olives plain or you can stuff them with feta, gorgonzola, or a chopped salame for an additional layer of flavor.
4) Caprese Salad Skewers
To pair with the olives, consider adding Caprese salad skewers. Simply skewer together fresh basil, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and a thin slice of prosciutto for a delicious treat. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and you are ready to enjoy this fresh and nutritious keto snack. Although the prep may take a bit more time than some of the classic grab and go snacks, the effort will be well worth it. The mozzarella cheese and prosciutto slices are packed with protein and will help to keep you satiated for several hours.
5) Mini Egg Frittatas
These little frittatas are an ideal make-ahead snack that is full of protein and nutrients. You can make your mini frittatas using muffin pans and customize your eggs with a variety of flavorful ingredients.
