50 Low Carb Snack Ideas for When You Get the Munchies

Living the low carb lifestyle can be difficult. I’ve tried before with my husband, and I think that most of my problem is that I didn’t try a variety of foods, and I didn’t keep low-carb snacks on hand. Now I have no excuse! I’ve compiled this HUGE list of 50 low carb snacks ideas to help all of us. And the good news is that most of these require very little prep or cooking at all. They’re easy peasy snacks you can whip up in just a few minutes, with a few exceptions. Having these items on hand will also help you make simple low carb meals, too.

Please keep in mind that, as with all foods, you need to watch your portions. Things like nuts, sugar-free chocolates and berries are easy to indulge in when you’re low carbing, but you need to portion them out before you start snacking to avoid eating too much.

Also, I’ve had a few complaints that some of these foods aren’t truly low carb. That is actually a matter of which plan you’re following.

If you’re following an early phase of Atkins, for example, and you need to stay under 20 net carbs a day, some of these low carb snacks won’t fit into your plan. However, people like my mother-in-law (who’s a diabetic), limits carbs, but perhaps within 80-100 carbs a day.

So, in that way, “low carb” is a little subjective. No matter what your carb count goal is for the day, though, I believe you’ll find something here to nosh on when you get hungry.

I try to eat low carb snacks, but find that I get bored with my choices. You've made my day with a bunch of new snacking options for me! Luckily I'm heading to the grocery store today.

Hello! I found this post through Pinterest, and it’s been very helpful so far. Can you please tell me what the bacon and cream cheese bites are? I can’t find anything like that online. Thank you!

It's just softly cooked bacon wrapped around a piece of cream cheese... or you can also mix up some cream cheese with lots of bacon pieces to make a sort of cheeseball. :)
