10 High Fiber, Low Carb Snacks to Eat On The Go
Eating high fiber low carb snacks is a whole lot easier when you know what to eat and why. As you may have learned on our dietary fiber page, fiber naturally reduces blood cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.
However, dietary fiber is only found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. All of which will have different amounts of carbohydrates, fibers, and sugars. Therefore, finding enough high fiber low carb snacks to eat on a keto diet can be difficult.
A traditional low carb diet is essentially a lower carb, higher protein diet with a normal intake of fat. Therefore, finding high fiber, low carb snacks to eat on the go should not be as much of a challenge. However, while a keto diet is very effective, it takes a bit more research to find high fiber, low carb snacks. With that said, we are sharing some of our favorite high fiber, low carb snacks with you.
