Low-Carb Snacks

Getting through the day requires a steady supply of energy, and your body knows it; that’s why it can be difficult to balance your natural craving for starchy and sugary sources of that sustaining sustenance with your resolve to cut carbs. Carbohydrates are everywhere, especially in our favorite collations; chips, crackers, cookies, and candies are curiously delicious, but consistent consumption of these tasty treats can lead to all types of health complications.

Many aim to reduce the amount of carbohydrates they consume in order to lose weight, lower blood sugar levels, or reduce their blood pressure. No matter your aim, finding balance in your diet is essential to achieving your ends. That’s why, when selecting snacks, you must not only look at the carbohydrate content of your food- but also examine the nutrients it provides, the types of carbohydrates that compose it, and the source of the compounds it contains.

Natural sources of simple and complex carbohydrates stand out above artificial and refined sources, while fibrous foods may supply a greater benefit than those that offer either compound. As for selecting between fiber, starches, and sugars while snacking- the decision should depend on the rest of your diet and the nutritive value of the food as a whole. If you are searching for a quick pick-me-up that’s full of fiber, then the simple sugars of your favorite fruit likely provide a perfect fit.

Looking for a longer-lasting pick-me-up? Find complex carbohydrates in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and kale. These low-carb, sources of starch also offer an abundant supply of fiber to support a healthy heart and digestive tract. Dehydrated fruits and vegetables offer an awesome blend of nutrients, and, while they each naturally provide their own rich flavors, we also offer varieties that are seasoned to taste with natural, piquancies you’ll love.
