Easy Keto Snacks: Low-Carb Fruits

Yes, you CAN enjoy fruit on a keto diet! Of course, many people choose not to eat fruit in favor of lower-carb snack options. And, some people’s carb tolerance may be lower than others, so eating fruit might throw them out of ketosis. But, there are some low-carb fruit options that you can work into your keto diet. It may just require a bit of planning and consideration of your total carb intake!

Although we often treat them like vegetables, avocado and olives are actually fruits that are low in carbs and high in satiating fats! But, there are lower-carb sweet fruits, too, like berries, starfruit, and plums. And, some people even be able to fit sweet, juicy watermelon into their keto diet—it’s surprisingly low in net carbs!

  1. Olives, ~3/4 cup (100g): 115 calories | 11g fat | 6g carbs | 3g net carbs | 1g protein

Easy Keto Snacks: Low-Carb Nuts, Seeds & Nut Butters

Nuts, seeds, and nut butters are classic easy keto snacks. Generally, nuts and seeds are low in cabs, high in fiber, and rich in dietary fats! Plus, they satisfy those crunchy cravings like nothin’ else can. But, be cautious with snacking on any and all nuts and seeds. Some popular nuts—like cashews and peanuts (which are technically a legume)—aren’t so keto-friendly. And yes, that means glorious cashew butter and peanut butter may not suit your low-carb lifestyle. But, everyone is different, and they may work for you and your body!

So, check out some of the best ketosis-fueling nuts, seeds, and nut butters for keto munching. Of course, there are some other seeds (like chia and flax) that are great for a low-carb diet. But, they’re just not so snackable, so they aren’t included on this list. And, you can always make your own nut butters with some of these keto-friendly nuts, like macadamia, pecan, or walnut butter!

And, one more word of caution with nuts and seeds: IT’S VERY EASY TO GO OVERBOARD. One serving of nuts (one ounce) is pretty small, so it’s pretty common for people to lose track of how much they’re eating! So, if you’re eating an entire cup of almonds (even though they’re rich in fat!) they might knock you out of ketosis.

Easy Keto Snacks: Cheeses, Meats & Proteins

Finally, meats and cheeses are supremely easy keto snacks, and downright delicious. BUT, you do have to be careful about the types and brands of meats and cheeses that you choose. Be sure to grab full-fat/whole milk cheeses, NOT the low-fat/skim varieties! And, when choosing snack-able meats—like deli meats, bacon, or jerky—be especially cautious. Most of these meats are highly processed, with loads of artificial additives and fillers. Plus, many contain added sugars, which means added carbs!

Also, while protein is an important part of a keto diet (and any healthy lifestyle), you don’t want to eat too much protein. Our bodies can only process so much protein! Then, it starts to convert that excess protein into glucose (a.k.a. carbs), which can throw you out of ketosis.

*For cleaner deli meats, Applegate Naturals/Organics is a good brand to check out! They offer a no-sugar-added bacon, and several deli meats without any sugar or additives. So, the nutrition provided here is using clean meats like those. Nutrition and ingredients will vary for different brands, so be vigilant and read the nutrition labels!

  1. Gruyere cheese, 1 oz. (28g): 116 calories | 9g fat | 0g carbs | 0g net carbs | 8g protein
  2. Brie, 1 oz. (28g): 95 calories | 8g fat | 0g carbs | 0g net carbs | 6g protein
  3. Cheddar (full-fat), 1 oz. (28g): 113 calories | 9g fat | 0.5g carbs | 0.5g net carbs | 7g protein
  4. Mozzarella (whole milk), 1 oz. (28g): 84 calories | 6g fat | 0.5g carbs | 0.5g net carbs | 6g protein
  5. Goat cheese (hard), 1 oz. (28g): 127 calories | 10g fat | 0.5g carbs | 0.5g net carbs | 9g protein
  6. Parmesan (hard)), 1 oz. (28g): 110 calories | 7g fat | 1g carbs | 1g net carbs | 10g protein
  7. Bacon (pan-fried), 2 slices (14g): 60 calories | 5g fat | 0g carbs | 0g net carbs | 4g protein
  8. Roast beef, 2 oz. (56g): 80 calories | 3g fat | 0g carbs | 0g net carbs | 12g protein
  9. Black forest ham, 2 oz. (56g): 50 calories | 1.5g fat | 0g carbs | 0g net carbs | 10g protein
  10. Hard boiled egg, 1 large (50g): 78 calories | 5g fat | 0.5g carbs | 0.5g net carbs | 6g protein

When it comes to easy keto snacks, whole foods are some of the EASIEST and healthiest choices. But, you can also jazz up those whole-food snacks with these simple keto recipes! By keeping healthy food interesting (and delicious), we’re more likely to stick with our healthy lifestyle! And, just because you’re on a fat-fueled keto diet, that doesn’t meat you’ll never catch a cookie or brownie craving again…

Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Check out our 10 savory recipes and 10 sweet recipes for easy keto snacks you can make in minutes!
