Tips for Success: Read your labels. Watch out for hidden carbs; to calculate the grams of carbs that impact your blood sugar, subtract the number of grams of dietary fiber from the total number of carb grams. Also double-check serving sizes on labels; some foods and drinks are actually two or more servings, so you need to add in those extra carbs and calories.
Looking for a new way to make healthy chips? Then you have to try these tomato chips. You’ll slice big, juicy tomatoes into thick slices and drizzle them with benefit-rich olive oil. After sprinkling them with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings, they’ll slow bake for several hours. The result is a tray full of low-carb snacks that are actually good for you!
Several doctors who have studied the effects of a low carb diet on the body have recommended that if you consume less than sixty grams of carbs a day, you need to increase your sodium intake by two to three grams (that’s a lot when you’re talking about salt!). So when you feel that craving for salty foods coming on, don’t ignore it! Try to satisfy the craving by consuming salt in a healthy and natural way (many of the recipes below will help you!). If the craving persists, visit your doctor and see what they have to say about your salty craving in conjunction with your low carb diet.
Sure, buffalo chicken wings are tasty. But what if you could have the buffalo chicken flavor combined with a crunchy celery stick in every bite? Say hello to these easy sticks. Use cooked, leftover chicken to make this speedy snack or side dish. You can cut back on the mayonnaise, too or even use a rotisserie chicken if you’re short on time. A sports game-worthy low-carb snack in just minutes? Yes, please.
Hi Bonnie. Yeah, added sugar in lunch meat is something to watch out for sure, great point. I have been able to find some here and there with no added sugar at all. Many times I’ve seen when it does contain sugar it is only 1-2 grams. So 6 slices for example might just be one gram of carbs. It really depends on how strict you are eating keto. Some people would completely avoid it because the sugar is technically not keto, other people might just look at it with a carb standpoint only. Very important to look out for though, especially for labels that say “sweet”, “honey”. etc. I typically avoid those ones all together.
