How to eat more protein snacks!

If carbs are not your thing it can be hard to snack on low-carb food.

So I have done some research and found a great list of snacks for the low carb eaters to dine on!

Try these yummy low carb alternatives.

Egg yourself up...

Keep a stock of hard boiled eggs in the fridge for a handy snacl you can mash these up with spring onions, mayo and chilli powder.

The green stuff...

Guacamole is great Рadd a few chopped avocados, to some chopped red onion, coriander, garlic and some lime juice and mash up! High in fibre low in carbs and great served with vegetable crudit̩s.

Nuts about nuts!

They are rich in fibre and protein making a great low carb snack. Try a serving of almonds (30g) coconut or hazelnuts or try brazil or macadamias which have half the carbs of these. Go natural.

Eat more meat...

Meat contains high levels of protein this includes, white meat, red meat and fish.


Pick and Mix cheese are great for on the go snacks. High in protein and help heal a hungry tummy! Go half fat and choose the lighter options or one of my favourites cream cheese and celery!

Italiano Mezze...

The deli counter offers a great range! Olives, pine nuts, mozzarella balls, Parma ham, peppers all great for protein!

Lettuce rolls...

Adding meats rolled into this such as turkey will totally satisfy your cravings and you can add a dollop of cream cheese!

All of these should satisfy your hunger cravings and give you lots of extra energy!
