Low-carb snacks and desserts are at the forefront of many health enthusiasts' minds. Carb-free snacks can taste amazing if you know what you're doing. They're also very healthy.
Science shows that following a low-carb or ketogenic diet holds many benefits. In one study, researchers found, "The LCKD [low carb ketogenic diet] improved glycemic control in type 2 diabetes patients, resulting in the discontinuation or reduction of most participants' diabetes medications."
Along with helping with diabetes and weight issues, low-carb snacks promote energy levels and appetite control.
Here are our favorite healthy low-carb snacks.
Low-Carb Fat Bombs
Fat bombs are among the first low-carb snacks that come to mind. They're the ultimate delicious, grab-and-go, addicting snack.
Fat bombs are similar to what's been called "energy balls" or "energy bites," though they don't contain dried fruits like dates and raisins.
Most delicious fat bombs contain different combinations of coconut butter, other nut butter, cacao, low-carb berries, and superfood powders like our Wild CocoTropic Superfood Cocoa Drink Mix. Coconut shreds, hemp seeds, and flax seeds are also excellent additions.
Experiment with different combinations and ratios of ingredients. You'll find something that sticks. It'll become your low-carb fat bomb signature recipe!
Celery and Almond Butter (or Nut Butter of Choice)
Don't be surprised if celery sticks with almond butter (or your nut butter of choice) and quickly becomes one of your go-to no-carb snacks. Though it might seem a bit boring initially, here's the truth: it's utterly addicting!
This snack is so addicting that you'll quickly find your nut butter jar emptying and celery disappearing. This is a testament to not only this keto snack's tastiness but its convenience as well.
Please bring it to the beach, in the car as a post-workout, or to work/school. Just be careful! This is an easy one to get carried away with!

Smoothies can be made large enough to count as a meal, but they can also be made small enough to pass as a snack.
