4 Best Low-Carb Snacks for Busy Days
When you’re living a fast-paced yet low-carb lifestyle, finding tasty and satisfying snacks is a must. Anyone who’s gone keto or just likes to eats low-carb knows that delicious low-carb snacks for on the go can be hard to come by. As much as we might not like to admit it, we live in a hustle-culture society, with many of us bouncing around from one activity to the next and one job to another. Munk Pack wants to empower people to lead active, healthy lifestyles no matter how busy their days are. Whether you’re keto or simply want to enjoy low-carb foods, these 7 low-carb snacks will help you stay on track in your health journey.
Better-for-You Trail Mix
Look at any traditional trail mix and you’ll probably find a combination of nuts and seeds…and that’s just the beginning. Most pre-packaged trail mixes include granola and candy, which may taste good but won’t do any favors for sustaining your energy levels on a busy day. Consider making your own DIY trail mix with better-for-you ingredients like almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and coconut flakes. Put this low-carb snack in a small, resealable bag that you can bring with you as you go about your day.
Low-Carb Granola Bars
The Coconut Cocoa Chip Keto Granola Bar™ is the perfect low carb snack for busy bees. Low-carb and keto-friendly, this snack is made with bee-free syrup instead of traditional honey to provide just the right level of sweetness without spiking your blood sugar. All of our Keto Granola Bars have between 2-3g net carbs to keep you in ketosis and since they’relow-sugar snacks, there’s no risk of experiencing an afternoon sugar rush. Toss a bar in your bag and you’ll be good to go for whatever the busy day brings.
Just Plain Nuts
No, we’re not just plain nuts, but we are suggesting that a mixture of different types of nuts could be a good low-carb snack for a busy day. Most nuts are naturally low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats. This makes them a great source of sustainable energy to power you up through the rigors of your day. Just a quick note: not all nuts are created equal. In fact, some nuts have a high carbohydrate content, which means they are not approved as low-carb snacks. Avoid cashews, pistachios, chestnuts, and too many almonds (a few are okay). Put together your own mix of nuts by opting for the oil-free, unseasoned, unsalted variety. We suggest a combination of macadamia nuts, walnuts, and peanuts. Grab a handful as you’re headed out the door and be on your way!
You can make chips from just about anything, vegetables included. DIY low-carb snacks are easy when you use veggies as the basis. Kale chips are some of the most popular vegetable-based chips around, but you could also experiment with zucchini chips. Just add a little salt, vinegar, and olive oil and bake them in the oven. Wait until they cool, toss them in a container, and munch on these low-carb snacks throughout your day!
