Eating a couple snacks during the day can help keep your appetite and cravings in check. From plant-based to cheesy or crunchy, whether you’re in the mood for a nosh, nibble or quick bite, these delicious and easy snacks cover all the bases.

 Cucumber Guacamole

This is a fresh play on your typical veggies and dip. Pair your cucumber guac with slices of jicama, carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes or a few baked low carb tortilla triangles.

 Green Olives with Lemon and Rosemary

These flavorful marinated olives are a sophisticated snack and a source of monounsaturated fats. They will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

 Keto Baked Cheese Crisps

You can have your cheese and eat it too with Keto Baked Cheese Crisps, which feature five different types of soft and hard cheeses.

 Keto Zucchini Pizza Bites

You can whip up these keto pizza bites faster than you can order a typical carb-heavy pizza.

Spicy & Crispy Chickpeas

You can swap chips for chickpeas with this crunchy low carb snack.

 Sweet & Salty Almonds

Almonds are the perfect plant-based and low carb snack that also features omega-3 fats. You can nibble on this snack when the salty-sweet cravings hit in the afternoon.

 Vegan Nut & Seed Energy Balls

You can make these energy balls ahead of time and store in the fridge for up to five days. You’ll get a nice boost of protein and fat with the peanut butter, while hemp hearts, which are hulled hemp seeds, are a lower carb swap for oats in baked goods and are high in fiber and a source of omega-3 fats.

 These snacks do double-duty as well! The Green Olives with Lemon and Rosemary, Keto Baked Cheese Crisp, Spicy & Crispy Chickpeas and Sweet & Salty Almonds are also tasty additions to any charcuterie or snack board.
