Carb Snack Ideas

When it comes to a low-carb breakfast, it’s best to choose something rich in protein, healthy fats, and/or fiber, says Ileana Cadenin, RD, a registered dietitian with her own practice.

These nutrients take longer for your body to digest, which means that if you eat better carbohydrates, low-fiber foods, or simple sugars, you will not feel satisfied for long.

In addition, if you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, a low-carb snack can help you sharply raise your blood sugar levels by the time you eat and build up without crashing, says Cadenin.
