People often ask what do low carbers eat for snacks? Well there are many snacks which fit the bill, for instance:-

Nuts such as macadamias, almonds, walnuts, brazils – and you don‘t need too many of them to fill that gap!

Cheese cut up some cheese such as cheddar, always great to have in the fridge, but you may prefer Double Gloucester as a change. There are endless and very tasty varieties out there! 

Olives are a good stand by too.

Celery sticks are such a great crunch. 

Pepper sticks my favourites are the red ones.

Cucumber so refreshing, the grandchildren often enjoy a few slices as a snack.

Of course if you’d like to make a tasty snack more presentable and adventurous, how about one of these suggestions!
