Have you recently started the keto diet? There’s more to it than bulletproof coffee and avocados! We like variety and when you begin a more restrictive diet like the keto diet, it can be hard to get variety in your snacks.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but we’re sharing a few of our favorite snacks that are good for protein and most importantly, very low in carbs.
Snacks that offer variety will keep your taste buds happy while your body gets the energy it needs. Instead of buying premade mixes you can easily make your own to avoid a ton of added salt and sugar.

For the fruit, look for ones with little to no added sugar like apricots, figs and prunes.

An alternative to hummus, roasted chickpeas are a great snack that you can flavor to your preference. They are high in fiber, protein, potassium and Vitamin C and are delicious on their own or dusted with cinnamon or cocoa powder.
