Best Snacks for Low-Carb Low-sugar Diet

October 15, 2018

So many people today are following some version of low-carbohydrate, low-sugar, low-GI or ketogenic diet these days. The thing people say they struggle with the most in adopting these lifestyles is finding tasty snacks that fit in their eating plan.

Thankfully, whether you are tracking “total carbs” or “net carbs” there are snacks that will keep you going in between meals. “Total carbs” include all of the carbohydrates in a food, including dietary fiber. To identify “net carbs” in a food, subtract dietary fiber and sugar alcohol (if contained in the food) from the total number of carbohydrates. 

Here are some ideal snacks that you can attack when you feel the need for a quick nibble while staying true to your way of eating. 

Milky way. With 20 grams of total carbohydrates and only 1 gram of net carbs per serving, satisfy your sweet tooth with these creamy sugar free milk chocolate bars

Cheese please. These baked cheese crisps are so crispy and can be used as croutons on salads, as a chip to hold dip or salsa or on their own for a cheesy bite.  Get the recipe at

Buttery burst. Reach for sugar-free butterscotch hard candies when you crave something sweet.  You’ll feel no guilt knowing these have 14 total carbohydrates and 0 net carbs for four pieces. 

Easy Energy. Need a fast fix for your mid-day slump? Try these quick and easy no-bake fruit and nut energy bars. Improve the flavor and healthfulness with no-sugar-added, no-sodium crunchy peanut butter and 100% whole grain hearty cut oatmeal. Get the recipe at
