For nearly 15 years now (!) I’ve been writing this blog and (mostly) sticking to a pretty carb-conscious way of eating. Of course I started out my healthy eating journey following the original South Beach Diet, and now it has evolved into more of a low-carb way of eating. But no matter what kind of healthier diet you’re trying to stick with, healthy low-carb snacks can really help you stay on track, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites for anyone who needs snack ideas.

All these snacks are things I eat regularly when I need something, and most of these are things you’ll always find in my fridge or pantry. And all of these are snacks I really enjoy! I like snacks with some crunch, as you can tell!

Ham and Dill Pickle Appetizer Bites
Easy Low-Carb Ham and Dill Pickle Appetizer Bites are something I love to make in batches and keep in the fridge to eat for a snack! And these are great for party food too.

Sugar Snap Peas
Sugar Snap Peas are great to eat plain, or enjoy them with some kind of veggie dip. When you haven’t had sugar for a while, these taste like candy! And despite the word sugar in the name, they’re not that high in carbs. I buy these at Costco, and they’re something I always have in the fridge. (They’re good cooked as well!)

Sheila's Low-Carb Shrimp Dip
Sheila’s Low-Carb Shrimp Dip will keep in the fridge for a couple of days, and this is a snack that feels like an absolute treat!

Nuts in small bags amazon.com
Nuts are definitely one of my favorite low-carb snacks and I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and measure them out into little baggies or buy the packages like this. (This is the snack I’m most likely to eat too much of. (Photo from Amazon.com; I hope they don’t mind me using it.)

After I discovered a single-serving guacamole that I loved, I started making these Easy Cucumber Guacamole Appetizer Bites. Or just cut a cucumber in strips and dip up the guacamole if you want an easier version!

Southwestern Ranch with Mini-Pepper Scoops
I love sweet mini-peppers which come in red, yellow, or orange. I eat these plain, or you can cut them in half lengthwise and use as a scoop for veggie dip. If you want to get a little fancier, make Southwestern Ranch Dip with Sweet Mini-Pepper Scoops!

Deviled Eggs collage
Perfect Hard-Cooked Eggs are always great for a snack, or make them into Deviled Eggs if you have a bit more time. I love, love, love deviled eggs and have a lot of deviled egg recipes on the blog.

Cheese sticks in package
Cheese is a perfect low-carb snack and buying these pre-packaged cheese sticks is a good way to exercise portion control. I buy an assortment of different cheese stick varieties, and I eat this for a snack almost every day. (Photo from Target.com; I hope they don’t mind me using it!)

I love Ranch dip, and Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip or Grandma Denny’s Homemade Ranch Dip is something you’ll always find in my fridge!

Snacks with Celery collage
I love celery so much, I have a whole post with Tasty and Low-Carb Snack Ideas with Celery. And celery stuffed with peanut butter is a great low-carb snack when you use my favorite low-sugar peanut butter

If you have a favorite low-carb snack that’s not mentioned here, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

  1. Look for the cherry tomatoes with the brand name “Cherubs”. Those little rascals should be labeled “Warning, may be habit forming”. They aren’t cheap but once you’ve tasted them the others simply don’t rate. And ditto about sugar snaps — good as a snack, in salads, in stir fries and as a side.

  2. There is a huge recipe category for breakfasts in the left sidebar.

  3. Just started SB and am looking forward to results on the scale. Hopefully lower. Lots of challenges but i think breakfast most difficult-. Any suvgesti
    ons?

  4. In the latest book (SBD Supercharged) it says "Milk 1% or fat free" is allowed up to 2 cups per day.

  5. I have been reading over and over and I cannot figure out if 1% milk is okay on phase 1 for stuff like coffee and adding into soups.

  6. According to google they are made from dried green peas, and since green peas are not allowed I doubt that Wasabi Peas would be either.

  7. Hi Kalyn,

    Do you think wasabi peas are a good South Beach snack for Phase 1?
