About Choosing Ketogenic Snacks That Won’t Kick You Out Of Ketosis
When people initiate a ketogenic diet for the first time they often complain about a lack of variety. This can be expected as most people new to low-carb, high-fat eating are not yet accustomed to looking at nutritional labels. Reading ingredients and nutrition labels will soon become second nature as the benefits of ketosis become evident.
Quick and easy Keto Snacks
- Macadamia nuts
- Brasil nuts
- Avocado or guacamole
- Boiled eggs natures own super keto keto snacks
- Jerky – fatty cuts of beef are best
- Pork Rinds – puffed skin of the pig
- Full-fat cheeses
- Compound (flavoured) Butter
- Cured meats, (no added carb) salami and pepperoni
- Cheese chips
LCHF Ketogenic Nuts
“Some” nuts make perfect keto snacks others aren’t such a good idea. A handful of keto friendly nuts will easily keep you satiated between meals and give you that long lasting energy a ketogenic diet provides so well.
High in Heart Healthy Fats, being mono-unsaturated fatty acids. Specifically oleic acid, palmitoleic acids that act in lowering bad LDL Cholesterol and raising good HDL Cholesterol helping fight against heart disease. Macadamia Nuts are full of minerals; calcium, magnesium, manganese with the added cardiovascular protection of selenium. Macadamia nuts are packed full of B group vitamins and are an excellent source of Vitamin A and E which both possess fantastic antioxidant properties. Oh and very low net carbs, 1oz or 28grams provides around just 0.5 gram of net carbs. Macadamia Nuts aren’t just a Keto Snack they’re a Keto Superfood.
Brasil Nuts are another favorite nut I include in my Keto Snacks stash.
Like Macadamia Nuts, they’re packed with a broad array of health benefits.
They come filled with healthy fats, and they are exceptionally high in selenium; just 30grams gives you 1000% (yes that’s right, “1 thousand”) of your daily selenium requirement.
Selenium is shown to prevent heart disease, diseases of the liver and various cancers.
Brasil Nuts are the highest source of selenium found in nature. You can also use Brasil nuts in gluten free recipes.
There is But One Keto Fruit Snack
As a general rule people on a ketogenic diet should steer well away from fruits. Most fruits are high sugar content except in the case of the Avocado. Avocados on their own debunk a lot of myths regarding the lack of nutrients in a ketogenic diet. Avocados are high in vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, folate, and potassium. They’re filled to the brim with healthy fats, very low in net carbs and packed with fiber. Avocados make the perfect keto snack; try avocado in a green salad and make great dips also.
Boiled Egg Keto Snacks
So you want Healthy Fats, Protein, Amino Acids and all the nutrient you can get in just one Keto Snack? Eggs are your answer. Our Tip: Buy em, Boil em, Fry Em, Poach em, Eat em!
Beef Jerky is one of those foods that you should pay attention to by reading the nutrition label. Beef Jerky can make a good keto snack. But it may have some carbs snuck in there depending on how it’s processed and flavored.
Jerky comes in various flavors and made with different types of meats. All with a varying degree of fat content. Keto being a high-fat diet you want to steer away from the lean varieties as they’re all protein and no fuel.
This Bacon Jerky is high in fat, moderate protein and no carbs, making it a great keto snack!
Or if you’re like us and love making your own keto snacks you can always buy one of these dehydrators, have some fun and save a bundle of money making your own Jerky.
Perhaps you could get into the Jerky making business, we’d love to see your recipes!
We love puffed pork rinds. They’re great with dips. Eat them with dip or have a drink nearby as they’re quite dry, but are a delicious alternative to corn and potato chips.
You can buy them in a variety of flavors or microwave bags as you go. They’re high in fat, a moderate amount of protein and no carb and a keto snack that’s easy for entertaining.
Dairy Keto Snacks
Full Fat Cheese Snacks
Various full-fat cheese such as brie, feta, halloumi, mozzarella and colby, all make great keto snacks. Cheese is an excellent source of calcium (many western populations lack sufficient calcium in their diets), protein, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin B12.
Cheese is also very satiating, keeping hunger at bay. Steer away from low-fat and skim varieties.
Food and Protein Bars
I prefer whole foods mostly or making our own high-fat keto snacks. But the best of the keto friendly protein bars for taste in my opinion are:
Quest bars (for my taste buds at least) are the best by a country mile!
Great tasting, very low in net carbs, a good amount of fat and protein and high in fiber, they make a very filling Keto Snack.
Don’t go overboard on them though as too much protein will throw you out of Ketosis. I’ve had some protein bars in my time, but these are at the top for taste, hands down.
Note: Never mind the total carbs the majority of those are Fibre, which does not spike insulin or count towards your keto carb macros.
