I love snacking! We all love snacking!

Being on a Ketogenic diet or low carb diet might seem pretty restrictive regarding snacking. Most people wonder on what they can snack without bringing lots of extra carbs to their diets. This post will give you a list of great snacks that are low in carbs.

Some studies that link constant snacking to weight gain. I only agree with this idea if your daily snacks consist of croissants, pastry products, sugary drinks, potato chips. Try to replace those highly processed foods with some of the low carb snacks listed bellow.

1. Nuts

A handful of nuts like almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans or Brazil nuts is the fastest snack you can have when you are craving something crunchy. Eat them instead of potato chips and you will get a lot of health benefits.
Nuts have plenty of protein and provide a lot of heart-healthy nutrients.

Pay attention to the quality and choose organic nuts.

Why should we soak the nuts?

      Soaking nuts is necessary and very important. They have Phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that prevent them from being digested properly.

      Eating unsoaked nuts can cause health issues. Phytic acid is found naturally in the coating of the nuts and seeds.

Phytic acid is considerate an "anti-nutrient" because it binds to the minerals in the digestive tract like iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and prevents the body from absorbing them.

Phytic acid is considerate an "anti-nutrient" because it binds to the minerals in the digestive tract like iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and prevents the body from absorbing them.

When the nuts are soaked, it begins the process of germination which makes the protein and vitamin content raise.

Roasted nuts will not activate.

2.Avocado

Cut a few slices, sprinkle with some of your favourite condiments, some olive oil, and there you have a perfect low carb snack. You can, also make guacamole and serve it with sliced vegetables.​



3.Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate is well known for its excellent source of antioxidants. It may improve brain functions, lower blood pressure and reduce the level of stress.

Choose the chocolate with the highest percentage of cocoa. I would recommend having a square or two of an 85% cocoa dark chocolate. It will satisfy your cravings for sweets.

Trust me! I was a sugar addict.



What can I do if I don't enjoy Dark Chocolate?

Train your brain to start liking it. Make sure you don't have any sweets available in your house. Then, the only solution to satisfy your cravings remains eating a few pieces of dark chocolate. It took me 3 weeks to get accommodated with the taste of dark chocolate. Oh, and don't forget about all its benefits!



4. Eggs
