Easy and Convenient Keto Diet Snacks Some Ideas
Here is a list of Keto Diet Snacks that can be kept close at hand in case hunger pains kick in. When following any diet it is always important to have plenty of suitable foods available and close by just in case you feel the need for a snack. This is particularly important with a low carb or ketosis diet as snack foods available in shops and convenience stores are generally made of high carbohydrate products, like bread, cookies and candies.
If you neglect to do this you may find that hunger will see you diving into the nearest cookie jar, or turning to a quick sandwich to combat the hunger pangs.
With this list of low carb snacks you need never be hungry.

Keto Diet Store Cupboard Ideas for Emergencies Only
The following are only suggestions for products you could put by in your store cupboard so you will allows have some keto diet snacks close by. I put these in the emergency category as they may be a good idea to keep some around if you are desperate but, these foods are not really recommended for day to day eating, this is because of the high salt and refinement of these products. However, I really feel it is better to eat these foods than high carb foods like cookies or bread if you intend to follow a low carb diet.
Tins of meat e.g ham, spam, chicken.
Tins of ready made foods like, beef stew, meat curry. Check for the amount of carbs on the label.
Low carb snack bars e. g. Atkins Bars (check the net carbs though).
