6 Best Low-Carb Snacks, According to Dietitians

Apples and cheese

To be more specific, "Pair about a cup of apple slices with one ounce of mozzarella cheese, which totals around 16 grams of carbohydrates.

This makes a nice combo of protein, fat, and fiber that will be a filling and satisfying snack.

Yogurt and cucumbers or berries

Greek yogurt, cucumbers, and berries—such as strawberries—are all delicious and nutritious. 

They're also a low-carb option that you can combine in a way that suits your particular preferences. 

Cottage cheese with berries

If you don't have Greek yogurt or just prefer cottage cheese, then the latter is another option to enjoy with berries.

Along with being a low-carb snack, there's another delicious reason to opt for this treat.

Celery and peanut butter

If you're a fan of creamy peanut butter, then you might be interested to find out that a serving contains around 22.7g of carbs. 

However, both Mussatto and Gillett recommend giving all-natural peanut butter a try due to the fact that it's a relatively low-carb choice.


Avocados not only offer you a creamy texture and delightful taste,

but they also contain vitamins and nutrients that benefit the heart and digestion while helping to prevent depression, bone loss, and even cancer.


If you're craving something crunchy, but want a healthy, low-carb snack option, you may want to grab some popcorn.

I love popcorn as a low-carb and whole grain snack because you get a nice amount of volume, which is perfect for people who like to munch.
