If you’re like me, you can spend hours in Target. Not only can you find cute clothes, beauty products, and general house items, but you can make Target your one-stop-shop and even get your groceries. For all of you trying out the Keto diet, you don’t only have to go to a grocery store to get your low-carb food, in fact, here are 10 Keto friendly snacks that you can pick up on your next Target trip.
One large egg contains less than 1 gram of carbs and fewer than 6 grams of protein, making it an ideal snack for the Keto diet! Pick up a pack of eggs from Target and make some hard-boiled eggs that you can snack on throughout the week!
Peanut Butter and Celery
High in fat and low carbs, nuts are another great option for your snacking needs. While many nuts are typically low in carbs, they aren’t all created equal. The best three nuts to have based off their net carb counts in a 1 oz. portion are Pecans (1.1 grams), Macadamia Nuts (1.5 grams), and Walnuts (1.9 grams)!
Carrot Sticks and Hummus
Hummus is typically seen as a no go on the Keto diet, however, according to Dr. Berg, it’s ok to have a moderate amount of hummus as long as you’re eating it with vegetables! Just make sure to read the labels of hummus and pick out one with the simple ingredients Dr. Berg mentions.
Cottage Cheese and Raspberries
According to Nutrition Data, canned tuna is made up of approximately 94 percent protein and 6 percent fat! Eat it on its own, make some tuna lettuce wraps or check out some of these Keto Tuna Recipes!
You can eat them on their own or pair them with your favorite cheese or deli meat! They contain no fat or protein, but no carbs either! By pairing them with high fat or protein foods, pickles become another great option to snack on.
Sugar-Free or Dark Chocolate
That’s right you heard me, Chocolate is actually welcomed on the Keto diet! However, if you’re choosing dark chocolate, which is high in antioxidants, it’s important to choose dark chocolate that contains and a minimum of 70% cocoa solids, preferably more. One ounce (28 grams) of unsweetened chocolate (100% cocoa) has 3 grams of net carbs. The same amount of 70–85% dark chocolate contains up to 10 grams of net carbs.
