Healthy Maintenance Snack Ideas

23 Healthy Snack Ideas

Read a huge list of no-carb/low-carb snacks! I love some of these ideas... but now I'm hungry!

Snacking can cause a lot of problems for anyone trying to lose weight or those who are diabetic, on a low-sugar diet, or low-carb diet (like Atkins or HCG Phase 3). Many common snack foods have higher-than-usual amounts of sugar and carbohydrates and can derail your otherwise healthy eating. Plus, when hunger strikes, it’s often easier to grab some chips or a candy bar than a healthier choice if you’re not prepared.  Right?  So, we made a list of healthy, low-sugar snacks that you can eat no matter what diet you are on (except Phase 2 of the HCG Diet). Let's see what we found.

To be ready for anything that may come up in your schedule, keep delicious and healthy snacks on hand. Here’s a good list of low-carb, low-sugar snacks that are perfect for diabetics, people on a low-sugar diet, and people on a low-carb diet.

  • 1 apple, sliced served with all-natural or organic peanut butter
    • Are you watching the amount of calories you eat? Use powdered peanut butter instead.
  • 1 ounce of cheese
    • Acceptable types include sharp cheddar cheese, string cheese, blue cheese.
  • 3-4 egg white scramble
    • Make an omelet. Add your favorite vegetable, such as spinach, mushrooms, onions, peppers, or whatever green, low-carb vegetable sounds good to you!
  • 1 can of albacore tuna
    • You can make it into a healthy tuna-salad, served with celery and maybe mayo.
  • 2 cups of almost any low-carb veggies, especially green vegetables
    • Limit potatoes, onions and tomatoes, because they are higher in sugars/carbs
  • 1 ounce of nuts
    • Try to stick with natural (unflavored) nuts. Certainly, avoid honey-roasted, flavored, coco-dusted, etc. nuts as these will usually have an abnormally high amount of sugar added!
  • ½ cup of Greek yogurt
    • Avoid the flavored, sweetened kind of yogurt all the time. For those that have no flavors added (just natural fruit), that is okay. Or, you can flavor it yourself with stevia and fresh berries.
  • ½ of a small to medium avocado
  • 1 cup sliced fruits
    • limit grapes, melons, and bananas, because they are higher in sugars/carbs
  • ½ cup non-sweet pickles

    • avoid honey roasted meats
  • ½ cup beans
    • such as navy beans, garbanzo beans, etc.
  • ¼ cup olives

    • served with carrots, celery, and cucumber for dipping
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
    • make savory with salt and pepper, or sweeten with stevia and fresh berries
  • 2 ounces beef jerky
    • check the ingredients for sugar, avoid teriyaki flavors, etc.
