Snacks

Another amazing thing about the keto lifestyle is you can snack! This just doesn’t seem to make sense, lose weight and you don’t have to give up snacking or desserts. This is why we love the low-carb lifestyle so much. We really haven’t changed how we eat, just what we eat.

Snacks show up throughout the day, especially at Happy Hour. We have perfected crunchy crackers, cheese crackers, dips, finger foods, and quick small items to nosh when the mood strikes.


Happy Hour Celery Sticks

Happy Hour Celery Sticks
An old timey classic, so dam popular in the ’50s….let’s bring it back!

Let’s admit it, celery is a great low-carb snack and the crisp crunch of a celery stalk is very satisfying but it is so bland on its own. I usually make a dip for celery or melt cheese on it, but lately I’ve been loading the celery channel with cream cheese.

Cocktail Meatballs

Tasty little morsels perfect for a single bit.

Everyone likes good food and good conversation. Being able to combine the two can be a bit challenging. In a party setting you need food that is appealing and portable/convenient. These meatballs are just the thing!

Baked Brie

Baked Brie for boardgames night or just hanging out by yourself

I love brie cheese, I love it even more when it’s baked and has yummy stuff on it like sundried tomatoes or pesto or bacon or mushrooms. When I feel like brie and don’t have company coming, I’ll bake up half a wheel just for myself. Lucky for me friends left a half wheel of brie behind this past weekend and I made up this yummy appetizer just for myself.

Deviled Eggs

A classic served at every gathering my parents ever had.

Growing up there was one constant at every event or gathering where food was provided was deviled eggs. I continued this tradition when I had my own family and these became my youngest son’s favourite. So much so that he had to be reminded that there were other people that wanted food as well. I hope your family enjoys them as much.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Feel like a crunchy snack? Roast up some seeds!

It’s Halloween tomorrow and after carving a pumpkin I kept the seeds and roasted them up for a super crunchy snack. There are about 85 seeds in one ounce of pumpkin seeds. That one ounce contains healthy fats, magnesium, zinc, and antioxidants. They are powerful little seeds.
