Easy Low-Carb Snacks
Baba Ganoush Recipe

Low-carb snacks are often higher in protein and lower in calories and sugar than high-carbohydrate snacks. This combination of nutrients allows you to control hunger and maintain energy without gaining weight.

While there is no specific definition for labeling a food “low-carb,” these snacks get the majority of their calories from lean protein, dietary fiber and heart-healthy fat. Prep these easy low-carb snacks so you can grab one quickly when hunger hits.
