Keto 101: Keto Friendly Snacks and Treats

All fun and no play on the keto diet will make anyone feel dull. Thankfully, there are plenty of keto snacks and tasty treats to keep you satisfied.


Keto snacks: quick, easy, healthy…and delicious!

Everyone needs a little snack between meals now and then. While many people may reach for chips, candy, or baked goods, keto dieters know that those are not the best options. Not only are they not keto friendly (too many carbs!), but they will only make you hungrier. Reach instead for a keto friendly, high fat, low carb snack! You’ll curb your hunger and stay on track.

Keto Snacks

Keto on the go: snacks you can grab anytime

One of the best parts about the keto diet is how many foods you are able to enjoy. Though going keto means saying goodbye to candy bars and potato chips, it opens up a whole new world of healthy and delicious snacks that will give you the energy you need to get through your day. Like any other diet, starting out a new lifestyle can be daunting, but just remember to keep it simple.

Keto Snacks

When contemplating what to snack on, make sure your snack is sugar and grain free. If there’s a label, read it and make sure your product doesn’t have any hidden sugar; even snacks labeled “low carb” can be too high carb for a keto diet! Reach for whole foods, like low carb veggies, and make sure you get enough fat. Here are just a few keto snacks you can enjoy:

  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • String cheese
  • Celery sticks filled with cream cheese
  • Cottage cheese
  • A small container of full fat yogurt
  • Nut butter packets
  • Peanuts, Cashews, and Almonds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Vegetable sticks with guacamole
  • Olives
  • Pickles
  • Beef jerky and meat sticks
  • Pork rinds

Most of these come pre-packaged at your local grocery store. How easy is that?

Healthy Keto Snacks

Are keto snacks healthy?

You bet they are! Low carb vegetables are loaded with vitamins, as are nuts and seeds. Dairy products provide much needed fat and calcium. And because these snacks have little to no carbs, most keto snacks are even good for diabetics. The only hurdle you may have to overcome is the prep work. It‘s rare to find cucumbers in the office vending machine!

Our tip? Buy a pile of keto friendly veggies like bell peppers, cucumbers, and broccoli and cut them up into bite size pieces. Pop them into bags or containers and you have an easy to reach keto snack for any time of the day! Throw a bag in your backpack or purse before heading out and you’re all set. To take your snack veggies to the next level, whip up a simple dip with full-fat Greek yogurt and fresh herbs for a tasty treat that’s perfect between meals.
