The Master List of Low Carb Snacks for Low Carb Diets, Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes

Chilled Yogurt with BerriesLooking for a list of low carb snacks to give you some ideas? This list will be frequently updated as I come across more snack ideas that work for low carb diets, gestational diabetes and diabetic diets. Since most of us don’t have time or the inclination to cook elaborate snacks, most of these can be thrown together in a matter of a few minutes. If the snack item on the list requires a recipe, the name of the snack will link to its corresponding recipe.

    I find the items listed under Low Carb Snacks under 100 Calories to be quite worthless. Personally, I would not waste 100 calories on any of these empty calorie items. I would recommend we find things of nutritional value to consume.

      Agree completely with Lindsey. I am shocked at these lists! These are not low carb options at all and even those that are somewhat lower carb choices are just plain garbage foods with hardly any nutritional value or fibre.
