21 Instant and Irresistible Low-Carb/High-Nutrient Snacks


21 Instant and Irresistible Low-Carb/High-Nutrient Snacks

Poor Planning=Poor Eating.

I have found that pre-planning nutritious and irresistible low-carbohydrate meals/snacks is vital in dealing with sugar cravings. Here are a few examples to have on-deck when cutting out the carbs. If I know that one of these yummy and extremely satisfying options are waiting for me, it is way easier to avoid the drive-thru. Some of these are not “perfect” primal options, but they are certainly good, instant options.

All of these can be prepared in about a minute or less. Bacon can be pre-cooked and eaten cold or warmed for about 20 seconds in a microwave. Have a few of these options on hand when time is an issue.

1. Beef jerky and nuts (look for jerky that has less than 5gr of sugar per serving, and paleo-approved nuts).
2. Wild salmon lox and cream cheese (no bagel, and be very sparing on the cream cheese).
3. Bacon and avocado slices on a romaine lettuce leaf, rolled up like a taco.
4. Tanka buffalo meat snacks.
5. 85% or higher dark chocolate with a tablespoon of coconut oil smeared on top.
6. Cucumber slices soaked in a small bowl of white vinegar with salt and pepper.
7. A whole sliced avocado with lime juice, salt and pepper.
8. Related to #6, a whole avocado with lemon juice and cayenne pepper.
9. Sardines (packed in water or olive oil…watch out for soybean oil in many brands). I like mine sprinkled with Tabasco sauce.
10. Dry salami and Kerrygold cheese slices rolled into little burrito thingys.
11. Fried pork skins/Chicharrones.
12. Two words: Bacon Jerky. Lower in sugar than most any jerky. Very satisfying.
13. A scoop of coconut oil and a handful of paleo- approved, raw nuts. Not roasted.
14. Ostrim ostrich sticks.
15. Smoked wild salmon. All by itself.
16. Crispy bacon with slices of avocado made into little bacon and avocado sandwiches.
17. Lettuce wraps with homemade guacamole and bacon strips.
18. Roasted deli meat…you have to be really careful about the ingredients. Look out for wheat and sugars.
19. 88% pure dark chocolate. All by itself.
20. 2 ounces of a hard, dry cheese like parmesan or Romano.
21. Canned smoked herring. Double check the contents for nasty oils like canola or cottonseed oil.

These are all options that are fair game on my 6-Week Nutrition Education Program.
