If you are following a high fat low carb diet like I am, you may have discovered that after a few weeks you really don’t crave snacks. At least that is what has happened for me. I really don’t have a need to snack in between meals.
But I found that some high fat low carb snacks really helped me get through the first couple of weeks. Here is my list of my favorite hflc snacks.
Kale chips! Kale chips are super easy to make. I follow the recipe by Robert Irine for Parmesan Kale Chips. They come out perfect every time and are yummy. Really they are better than buttered pop corn.
Cheese Chips! These are simple to make and perfect if you want something crispy to chomp on.
Nuts are a quick and easy snack, but be careful. If you eat to many you could be packing on too many carbs. I stick with the Brazil and macadamia nuts as they have the least amount of carb.
Cheese and Pepperoni is also something easy to grab on the run. If you want something pre-packaged then buy some full fat string cheese sticks.
Cream Cheese and Celery is quick and easy. My Mom made these for me as a child and I love the flavor combination.
Pork Rinds I love pork rinds because they have a huge amount of fat and will usually cut my cravings within a few moments. It is also nice there there are often a good variety of flavors. But you really got to watch the labels. I actually found some that had sugar in it.
I have found that it is sometimes difficult to find pork rinds in my local stores. So when I do find them, I buy at least 10 bags. But I also found that it can be much for cost effective to just buy them online in bulk. My favorite brand is Pork Clouds.
