High-fat snacks for the keto-curious

High-fat snacks for the keto-curious

Jan 10th 2020

Whether you're a pro at keto or keto-curious, snacks can be a trouble zone. Many snacks tend to be carb and sugar-heavy. Processed snacks like chips, bars, cookies, and pastries, aren't beneficial for any eating regimen, but especially a no-no when eating keto. A ketogenic (keto) diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb diet that's meant to shift your body from a glycogen-burning (carbs) mode to a fat-burning mode. So, what are you supposed to snack on to tie yourself over between meals when eating keto? Here are our go-to choices.

Brazil Nuts

With 10 gr of fat and only 2 gr of carbs, Brazil Nuts make for a perfect keto snack that's also an excellent source of selenium. They also are a source of fiber, which helps negate the effect of carbs on the bloodstream (keeping you in ketosis).

Black Botija Olives

Black Botija Olives are a savory delicacy and pack 4 gr of fat with only 1 gr of carbs. We can hardly keep them in stock. If you want a perfect keto snack, pair them with our raw cashews - it's seriously one of the most delicious snacks we've come across. They're good for your gut too.

Pumpkin Seeds

Enjoy them by the handful or sprinkle on a salad. Pumpkin Seeds boast 13 gr of fat only 3 gr of carbs. They are an excellent source of magnesium - a key mineral in helping the body regulate stress. We also love adding them to our day as a beauty food. They're a good source of zinc and iron - two important minerals for healthy hair.

Cashews

If you haven't tried our cashews yet, you're in for a treat. They are creamy, fresh, and delicious. Cashews are having a moment just like cauliflower, and we love incorporating them into basically everything. They boast 12 gr of fat and 9 gr of carbs per serving and are an excellent source of magnesium, which is good for stress regulation. Try them with our Black Botija Olives. You won't look back.
