Low Carb Keto Snacks is a must have if you are someone who is busy or on the go. As anyone sticking to the keto diet knows, finding snacks can be tough. Especially tasty ones. So I’ve decided to collect a list of the lowest carb keto snacks that I make for the girls on a regular basis. These are all easy to find or make and favorites of the family, all while staying ketogenic.
Salty snacks are a huge craving when you are on any diet. Most snack foods today are made with so many chemicals, additives and sugar making most salty snack options unavailable when you are on a low carb keto diet. However, there are so many easy and quick low carb keto snacks for you to try especially if you are busy and on the go.

31. Hard Boiled Eggs
Once touted as an unhealthy food due to high cholesterol content, it has now been established that eggs are very good for most individuals. New research indicates that eggs do not increase your heart disease risk, but rather are full of healthy nutrients.
Eggs contain vitamins B12 and K2, as well as about 6.5 grams of protein per egg. They are also a low calorie snack, as there are only approximately 140 calories in two, large hard boiled eggs. In addition, because they are a high protein food, they curb hunger and may reduce the total number of calories you eat for several hours, which can assist you with your weight loss goals. Eggs is one of our favorite and easiest low carb keto snacks to make.

However, cocktail sauce typically contains modest amounts of sugar, so dip your shrimp sparingly–you will still enjoy plenty of flavor. Additional nutrients found in shrimp include iodine, B12, copper, phosphorous and selenium.
