It’s been years now since I embarked on my journey into carb-conscious eating habits, but I still remember how I looked forward to the snacks during those early days. And now I’m still someone who can’t get through the day without a snack!
One of my favorite snack foods is celery, so diet-friendly and such a great vehicle for delivering other flavors to your mouth. And it’s that time of year when some of you are getting ready for bathing suit season, so I thought I’d share The BEST Tasty Carb-Conscious Snacks with Celery! There are enough ideas here to satisfy you any time you need a snack!
Let’s start with celery stuffed with peanut butter, definitely something I’d enjoy as a snack any time of day. If you’re eating peanut butter on the South Beach Diet or another carb-conscious eating plan, it needs to be a natural peanut butter, without added sugar. This is my favorite brand, but there are lots of good ones.
Peanut butter is a calorie-dense food, so limit the serving size if you’re trying to limit calories. These are short little pieces of celery, but this is enough of a snack to satisfy me when I need something to munch on.
Hummus is something I eat in moderation, and I love to stuff it inside celery, or just eat with the celery as a dipper. This Meza hummus is something I always have in the fridge, but hummus is easy enough to make from scratch, so check the recipe links after the photos if you’d like to make your own. Hummus does have some carbs, so watch the portion size if you’re limiting carbs.
This gourmet garlic and herb cheese is something else I absolutely love stuffed into celery. I buy this at Costco, but there are other brands of similar cheese available in most supermarkets or specialty food stores.
