Ketogenic diets are often confused with hunger and unappealing foods. On the other hand, some people believe that certain snacks in traditional diets can be keto-friendly. They think fruits can be consumed as an afternoon snack without a problem. They also believe that “light” products and “whole wheat” are good to go. However, this is not true, and keto diets have their own set of healthy snacks that will contribute to maintaining ketosis as a part of your diet!
Having the right foods at hand can make all the difference. It will refill your energy when you need it and help you stay satiated for longer and without temptations. Some snacks are a bit complex and require preparation time. Others are pretty simple and ready to be used when you have no time to prepare.
So, with that in mind, let us go through a variety of keto snacks, including cheese bites, low-carb snacks, zero-carb snacks, nut-based snacks, ice cream, and other sweet keto snacks.
1) Mashed Avocados
This is perhaps the most versatile food you can have for keto snacks. It can be added to salads, sandwiches, dips, and even smoothies. One tablespoon of mashed avocado contains 3 grams of dietary fiber and 4 grams of monounsaturated fat, both aiding digestion. Avocados also contain vitamins, especially C, K, and E. One medium avocado contains 115 calories, 7 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, and 15 percent of the daily requirement of vitamins B2, B5, B6, and folate.
