10 Awesome, Filling, and Quick Low Carb Snacks

Many health conscious people are currently turning to a low carb diet. It is easier to feel satiated when you eat protein and healthy fats, rather than carb that metabolize into sugar in the body. Carbs can lead to sugar crashes and the desire to eat again soon after your meal, whereas protein and fats allow you to feel full for longer, thus eating less overall. Here are some excellent and novel low carb snacks to consider when your 3pm food cravings strike.

1. Avocado and egg

Crack an egg into the hole left by removing the pit from the avocado. Bake it at 425 in your oven till the egg has the desired consistency.

                    10. Crustless Quiche

                    Spray a round pan with Pam or coconut oil spray. In a bowl, beat 12-15 eggs and any other ingredients you like, such as scallions, shredded cheese, bacon bits, sauteed onions, mushrooms, or other vegetables, and spices such as salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano. Bake till a toothpick inserted comes out clean, around 50 minutes. This takes longer to make than the others but you can eat it all week long.
