Best Keto Snacks
Keto snacks come in all types of flavors and textures—crunchy, creamy, sweet, savory. One benefit of the keto diet is staying satisfied for longer stretches after meals, but if you need a quick nosh, opt for something with additional fat (like cottage cheese or sliced veggies with yogurt dip) to help keep you in ketosis. Just make sure you stick within keto diet guidelines. That is, avoid grains, sugar, beans, legumes, vegetable oils, milk, juice, starchy root veggies, and high-carb nuts. If choosing a packaged snack, be diligent about reading the label so there aren’t any surprises.
