Low carb diets have been hailed for their ability to shed pounds – and shed them quickly. Given the countless success stories out there that surround low carb diets, if you’re trying to lose weight, you might be considering trying reducing your carb intake.
However, it’s a lot easier to plan full meals when you go low carb; after all, eating lean meat and low carb veggies (there’s a lot to choose from!) is a simple and filling meal solution. But what do you do when you are feeling a hungry between meals?
When hunger pangs start to set in but it isn’t meal time, reaching for a bag of chips or crackers (snack foods that are ridiculously high in carbs) to satiate your stomach until your next meal can throw your diet plan off track; instead, here are some healthy, low carb snack option that you should consider giving a try.
1. Buffalo celery sticks
Buffalo wings sure are tasty, but since they are usually fried, they aren’t exactly the most diet-friendly food. If you are trying to lose weight and enjoy spicy foods, instead of ordering wings, whip up a batch of Buffalo chicken on a celery stick. To make this low carb snack, you’ll need shredded chicken, wing sauce, black pepper, garlic powder, low-fat mayo, and celery sticks. Mix the chicken, mayo, garlic, salt, pepper, and wing sauce together in a bowl.
Wash the celery sticks and slice them lengthwise. Fill each stick with some of the Buffalo chicken filling and you have a tasty, easy to prepare, filling snack that is low in carbs and high in flavor. You can even whip up a batch and leave it in the fridge to munch on when you are in a hurry, or just dig in with a fork!
