The Best Low-Carb Snacks

Apple And Cheese

You might think this is a disgusting mix, but try it before discarding it. The mix between savory and sweet flavors always ends up being a good match when done right. And rest assured, this is a good match indeed with only 16 grams of carbs.

And the best thing about this combination is that you can eat however you want. Just pair a cup of apple slices with an ounce of mozzarella or your favorite type of cheese and go crazy. You can eat it raw or gratin for more texture. It’s your choice!

Yogurt And Cucumbers

Do you like nachos and cheese? Well, this is the healthier and lighter version of that dish. Just use a cup of low-fat plain Greek yogurt and chop cucumber into slices. Then use the yogurt as a dip and eat away.

This snack was inspired by the Greek dish tzatziki, which also consists of plain yogurt and shredded cucumber, but has a lot more seasonings. The version here only contains 12 grams of carbs and 25 grams of protein.

Cottage Cheese With Berries

The following snack is for cheesecake lovers. That famous dessert is too calorie intensive, so the next best option is to prepare a snack that mimics it but with healthier ingredients and only 17 grams of carbs.

For this, you have to pair up a cup of low-fat cottage cheese with a cup of fresh raspberries and blueberries and add a little bit of your favorite no-calorie sweetener. You can add different types of berries to make the snack more nutritious and even add frozen ones if it’s summer.

Celery And Peanut Butter

Yes, this is as weird as you think, but again, don’t knock it until you have tried it. This combination will probably bring to mind some memories of your childhood since it’s a typical snack for kids at a developing age who need to cut down on fats.

The dish is as simple as they come. Just grab celery, cut it in half and spread some natural-style peanut butter on it. This snack will provide you with lots of energy and only 17 grams of carbs.

Tuna-Stuffed Tomato

If you enjoy seafood, this will be right up your alley. Instead of making a tuna and cheese sandwich, just drop the bread, slice a tomato in half and take out the insides. After that, just fill the tomato with tuna and add a little bit of seasoning, like salt and pepper.

This delicious snack is super easy to make and only has 3.5 grams of carbs. You can also cook it in the oven to make the tomato crusty and give the dish a lot more texture. Just remember not to eat too many!
