I posted 5 low-carb snacks yesterday. Figure I might as well go for 10. 🙂
Greek Yogurt – I love yogurt, but the yogurt I had been eating had a few too many carbs. Greek yogurt has 6 grams. Regular yogurt can have twice as many carbs and greek yogurt has more protein. It’s also a bit more creamier I’ve noticed.
Walnuts – Walnuts have fewer carbs than other nuts. I cup of walnuts has 11 grams of carbs. A cup of almonds has 20 grams and a cup of peanuts, 24 grams. I bought almonds yesterday, but fortunately it was a small can. I’ll get walnuts instead.
String Cheese – I’ve never eaten string cheese before. I’ve seen it in the store, and I love cheese, so I’ll give it a try.
Kale Chips – Okay this is a another new one which I plan to try. You need two large handfuls of chopped and washed kale, toss them with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. One cup of kale contains 35 calories and 7 grams of carbs. I’ll let you know how they taste. 🙂
Pear and Cheese – A light cheese stick and a small pear. Can stick that in a lunch bag for an on the go snack. Can’t get any easier than that.
Happy Easter! It’s lovely here today, with sunshine and warm temps. Couldn’t ask for a prettier Easter Sunday especially after the long, long, cold, COLD, winter we’ve had.
