Keto Snacks That I'm Loving!

Keto Snacks That I'm Loving!

Do you remember we started the year with all the attitude, planning our outfits to exercise (as much as possible), taking care of our skin for a brighter 2021 and discovering the colors of the year to improve our outfits and our social media? Well February just started and I'm still working on myself to get a healthier life.

A few weeks ago I started "Keto", which is a low carb, high fat diet that sends your body into a state of ketosis, where the body uses fat stores for energy. On the ketogenic diet, you are restricted from all grains, sugar, and high-starch and high-sugar vegetables and fruits such as potatoes, squash, dates, and bananas.

Today I want to share with you some healthy snacks that are part of my new diet, I just want to say that everyone's bodies and needs are different, this is just some inspiration in case you are into Keto too or you want to try it.

1. Berries 

Most fruits are too high in carbs to include on a ketogenic diet, but berries are an exception. Berries are low in carbs and high in fiber. In fact, raspberries and blackberries contain as much fiber as digestible carbs.

2. Avocados

Thanks to their high content of heart-healthy fats, avocados make a great addition to a ketogenic diet. The fat content in avocados makes them a delicious and satisfying keto snack.

 

3. Dark Chocolate

A small piece of dark chocolate is an excellent keto-friendly snack that is both delicious and nutritious.

4. Greek Yogurt

While yogurt does contain carbs, Greek yogurt has less than the other varieties. Go for the full-fat versions and pay attention to the sugar content.

5. Cheese and Deli Meat

Okay, I'll be really honest, as a cheese lover, this is my absolute FAVORITE from the list, imagine a charcuterie board with this elements + avocado + olives (also Keto), is the perfect combo!!!. Just be careful with portions. 

The best way to stay full and keep your energy high on a ketogenic diet is to make sure you’re getting enough of the right fats. When you cut carbs, you have to replace them with something, which is why fat is your friend.
