Grab-And-Go Keto Snacks (Low Carb Snacks)
1. Pepperoni, Salami Slices, or Lunch Meat
Just be on the look out for added sugar in lunch meat and avoid anything titled “sweet”, “honey”, etc. Pair with your favorite cheese or olives, YUM!!
These are tasty on their own or mix them with almonds for some extra yumminess! One serving (1/4 cup) has only two net carbs. You can find some here.
3. Full Fat Cheese
String cheese, Laughing Cow cheese wedges (my favorite), and Babybel cheese are awesome to have on hand because they’re already portioned out for you. You could also buy your favorite pre sliced cheese or slice your own cheese ahead of time.
Stick to full fat cheese for keto.
You can find some here. These ones are awesome because they have no added sugar or artificial ingredients.
If you’re craving a crunchy snack, pork rinds will really hit the spot. Some flavors like barbecue have sugar in them, so be sure to read labels!
7. Low Carb Fruit
If you’re craving something sweet, just grab some fruit. Berries are very low in carbs and delicious!

8. Nuts & Seeds
Nuts are like fruit where you need to watch the carbs, but are definitely beneficial if you’re able to work them into your diet.
This handy guide to carbs in nuts and seeds by Ditch the Carbs breaks down the carb counts and benefits of popular nuts and seeds.
10. Salsa & Veggies
Be on the lookout for no sugar added salsa to stay keto/low carb compliant.
11. Dark Chocolate
If you’re on keto but worried about not being able to get your chocolate fix, fear not chocolate is aloud on keto, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Typical chocolate bars that have a bunch of sugar that you may be used to eating are not keto friendly.
You can have unsweetened dark chocolate, just look for a higher chocolate percentage. Unsweetened chocolate is very bitter, some people like shredding a little bit on fruit to balance out the bitterness.
Another option is buying dark chocolate sweetened with Stevia or sugar free sweeteners. I know some of you guys stay away from these type of sweeteners, but for the rest of you I wanted to mention it to give you options.
There’s a brand called Lily’s that makes Stevia sweetened chocolate that is really yummy and tastes like the real thing. Carb wise you will want to portion them out and be warned it might be hard not to eat the whole bar (they’re that good).
12. Mozzarella Wrapped Prosciutto
You can prepare this yourself or buy it already prepared in the deli section.

13. Individually Packaged Guacamole and Veggies
Wholly Guacamole makes mini size guacamole packs that are perfect for dipping veggies (or pork rinds) in.
14. Cheese Crisps or Moon Cheese
15. Berries & Cream
Yes, I did say zero prep, but this takes less than two minutes to make and is AMAZING!
Pour 1-2 tbsp unsweetened heavy whipping cream over your favorite low carb fruit (strawberries are delicious in this). Stir for 20-30 seconds until the whip cream fluffs up.
If you have time, I like sticking it in the freezer for ten minutes to make it feel like a frozen treat. This snack will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth and is completely keto friendly!!
17. Your Favorite Low Carb Veggies
Cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, celery, and cherry tomatoes (technically a fruit lol) pack very well and don’t require cooking or get soggy throughout the day.
If you’re looking for a pre-made and sweet snack, these really hit the spot!
19. Cucumbers & Cottage Cheese
Hey, it may sound a little odd, but dipping cucumbers in cottage cheese is quite tasty!
20. Cucumbers & Laughing Cow Cheese (Or Cream Cheese)
If cottage cheese isn’t your thing (that’s okay, we can still be friends), spreading prepackaged Laughing Cow cheese wedges on sliced cucumbers is very refreshing on a hot day. Cream cheese is another option as well.
Bonus Idea: Bullet Proof Coffee
This makes great snack and can help you out of your afternoon slump. Here is my recipe for the best keto bullet proof coffee.
And one little last helpful tidbit on keto snacks…
Always keep a non-perishable snack with you at all times, you never know when you might need it. Keep it in in your purse, car, at your desk, etc. It’s always better to be prepared, it will help you from mindlessly eating something you shouldn’t.
