Low Carb/High Fat Snacks to Help Kill Your Cravings

One of the best things about following a high fat, low carb diet is that most people rarely feel the need for snacks—the inherent nature of the foods you eat on a ketogenic diet (fat and protein) are satiating, keeping you full for hours at a time. However, for others, snacking is a way of life, and as humans, we occasionally (ha) get cravings. I’ve been there…bored at your desk at work, watching a movie and wanting something to munch on, just in between meals, riding the crimson wave...sometimes you just need a little somethin somethin. So, what can you eat?

Why, a keto-friendly snack, of course. A good keto snack will be 6 net carbs or less. A great keto snack will be zero carbs. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite keto snacks, separated by sweet and savory, which all meet this criteria. Unsurprisingly (and for some, sadly), there are more savory than sweet snacks. Also unsurprisingly, a lot of these snacks are homemade, like many keto foods. However, whether homemade or storebought, sweet or savory, I can guarantee you that you’ll find something on this list to satisfy your cravings. In some cases, I’ve recommended specific brands that I know are low carb/high fat. However, as always, read the labels closely to ensure low net carbs. Remember: 6 net carbs or less!

This list is by no means exhaustive. The limit to keto snacks is only as small as your imagination (or your Google search!). If you’re craving something not on this list, I guarantee you that there is a keto version of almost anything you love. And if you have any suggestions of snacks to add, please leave them in the comments below!
