One of the best things about living a ketogenic lifestyle like Atkins20® or Atkins40®* is that having an afternoon snack is okay! Snacks throughout the day are encouraged as a way to fight off fatigue, jitters, inability to concentrate, cravings for carb-heavy foods, or overeating at future meals. However, it is important to focus on which type of snack you are consuming. The best keto diet snacks are made up of good fats, protein, and fiber for appetite control. We’re here to help you get through the day and meet your low carb goals with a list of easy-to-make keto friendly snacks:
