Super satisfying snack ideas! On a low carb diet but still watching your calories? Here are some super-satisfying high protein, low carb but still low calorie snack ideas that will be sure to keep you on track. These snacks will also provide you a boost of fantastic energy mid-morning, or mid-afternoon and fill you up!
1.) Hard boiled egg slices, served with slices of fresh avocado. Or, slice the eggs and top with scoops of pre-made guacamole. I’m a huge fan of Wholly Guacamole’s individually packaged, perfectly portioned, 100 calore guacamole packs! A hard boiled egg is approximately 1 carb and the 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole packs have 5 carbs, with 3 grams of fiber.
Sliced eggs and guacamole or a few avocado slices = 175 calories, 7 grams protein, 6 carbs (but 3 grams fiber) so 3 net carbs.
2.) Cucumber slices and 2 tablespoons of prepared hummus. Let’s not count the Cucumber calories! Sabra Hummus, a common prepared brand has just 70 calories for 2 tablespoons, and 4 carbs with 1 gram fiber, so 2 net carbs!
Cucumber slices and hummus – 70 calories, 2 grams protein, 3 net carbs
3.) Celery Sticks and 2 Tablespoon Almond Butter. Let’s not count the celery calories! Almond butter generally has 6 carbs per serving, with 2 gram fiber, so 4 net carbs.
Celery sticks and almond butter – 200 calories, 5 grams protein, 4 net carbs.
