20 Keto Snacks (All Under 5 Minutes)

20 Keto Snacks (All Under 5 Minutes)

As you get keto-adapted,
most people find the inclination to snack (at least snack
frequently) decreases. But that can take a bit of time. It’s not
necessarily something to expect your first week (although some
folks do begin to experience the change within a few days, provided
they’re eating enough overall). Still, even the most long-term
keto dieters will want a snack now and then—or will replace a
meal with a snack because they’ve settled into a solid keto
nutritional strategy and don’t always need three regular
“meals” most days.

My theory is that meals, and particularly snacks, should be
simple and easy. Few of us have time to make elaborate meals every
day, and when we’re living into a new eating strategy,
convenience matters. In that spirit, here are 20 keto snack ideas
that take 5 minutes or less to make. Enjoy! And let me know your
favorite—from this list or from your own keto or Primal

1. Egg Coffee

An original Primal favorite is a great keto pick-me-up for
morning or afternoon. Find the recipe here.

2. Soft- or Hard-boiled Egg

It doesn’t get much easier than this. Cook up a batch on
Sunday, and you’ll be set for the week.

3. Guacamole

Make it as simple as you like. Mashed avocado, sea salt and lime
juice do it for me, but sometimes I’ll throw in some canned green
chilis, half a tomato, and some chopped red onion, garlic or

4. Primal Kitchen® Protein Bar

I wanted a packaged keto snack to travel with, and
have become my favorite. (This variety has nine grams of
total carbs.)

5. Tuna in Avocado Half

The fat of the avocado and
Primal Kitchen Mayo
with the protein of tuna make this one of
the more filling snacks I turn to.

6. Olives

It’s the simple things, right? Splurge on a container of your
favorite olive mix.

7. Spoonful of Artisana Coconut Butter

Just when I said it didn’t get any simpler… As I’ve
shared before
, this is one of my favorite go-to snacks.

8. Raw Veggies and Healthy Dip/Dressing

Anyone can put this together in containers for the week. And,
Primal Kitchen Dressings
make it easier and more flavorful.

9. Leftover Chicken Wings

Savvy keto strategy: make enough wings for the play-off games on
Sunday. Enjoy the leftovers during the week. Deep fry them in

avocado oil
(trust me on this…) and slather on your
favorite BBQ sauce

10. 5-Minute Salad

As most of you know, I’m a big fan of Big-Ass Salads for
lunch, but a lighter (and quicker) snack salad is always a
possibility. An easy one to put together is spinach, pecans, red
onions, feta and
Primal Kitchen Balsamic Dressing

11. Leftover Steak Strips with Bell Pepper Strips and Steak Sauce

It’s a leftover lovers dream. And I’m happy to recommend a

favorite steak sauce

12. Lox Wraps

Skip the bagel carb binge and enjoy this classic on some butter
lettuce or romaine leaves with a schmear of whipped cream and your
favorite toppings.

13. Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Save some asparagus from dinner and take ten seconds to wrap
them with this deli counter favorite.

14. Macadamia Nuts

Keep a bag of them at work. They’re great with your morning
coffee, too.

15. Unsweetened Nut Butter on Celery Sticks

Make enough for the kids because otherwise they’ll eat

16. Cheese Crisps

Yup—five minutes or less. Buy pure cheese crisps at the store
(sometimes they’ll contain nut flour), or
make them at home

17. Summer Sausage

Your childhood camping favorite is still a good option. (Look
for a nitrate-free brand.)

18. California Sub Roll-Up

I like this easy roll-up idea.
Works for Italian sub ingredients, too.

19. Shrimp Cocktail

Keto can be as indulgent as you want to make it. I like making
my own cocktail sauce with
