10 Easy Low-Carb (Keto) Veggie Snacks

Snacking is not so important to me now, but it does take months. You will finally learn the difference between hunger, boredom and habit. Have snacks ready, and don’t go hungry because you are more likely to become so hungry, that you end up eating something you shouldn’t. Part of changing our total way of eating and thinking about food, is learning not to overindulge on any one food, go for variety to ensure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Variety and balance.

Try and get into the habit of eating something that takes a little preparation. You will enjoy the ritual of making it and the whole ‘snack experience’ will take longer rather than an instant fix, leaving you probably wanting more. Here are my top 10 easy low carb Veggie snacks.
