Honestly, the best parts of the keto diet are the snacks. Sure, when you’re on the ketogenic diet -- a meal plan that requires high-fat, moderate proteins, and limited carbs -- you have to stray away from indulgent treats. Although debated, to ideally achieve ketosis, you’re only allotted 20-40 grams of carbs per day.
You may be wondering what snacks can actually be good and light on the carbs. Where are chips and crackers? Where are the cookies? You might miss them at first, but then you'll realize that you can shovel baked cheese crisps hand over fist into your mouth, and you will quickly forget all about them. What other diet allows you to eat globs of peanut butter by the spoon and call that a snack? Or devour sizzling strips of bacon as a form of replenishing your body?
Whatever the craving, sweet or savory, meaty or nutty, here are 12 go-to treats that are keto-friendly for when you’re having a snack attack.
