For those people who are following a ketogenic diet, you know that there are great, secret keto foods available at go-to places such as Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, and even Chipotle, and these allow you to score on high-fat and low-carb foods on the go. Another great source to find these keto-friendly foods is Amazon, especially because you can use your Prime account to ship these snacks to your doorstep. The only downside is that due to the immense amount of snacks offered by the online retail giant, it can be hard to determine which ones are truly keto-friendly. Luckily, many registered dietitians have identified the best keto-safe snacks offered by Amazon. So, let’s take a look at some of the best keto snacks available on Amazon.
Terrasoul Superfoods Organic Hulled Sunflower Seeds
According to registered dietitian Katey Davidson, M.S, R.D “sunflower seeds are a great snack option whether you follow a keto diet or not.” While all sunflower seeds are an excellent source of healthy unsaturated fats, protein, and vitamin E, a lot of companies use flavorings to season them which can be high in both salt and sugar. Terrasoul Superfoods is a great brand that is neither flavored or salted. They contain only six grams of carbs and one gram of super per one-quarter cup. Davidson recommends eating just a handful of seeds which is considered one serving.
People’s Choice Old Fashioned Beef Jerky
This jerky is not only zero-carb, sugar-free, and full of protein, but it is also the perfect keto post-workout snack, especially because protein is critical in building and repairing your muscles after working out. Plus, due to the fact that jerky is harder to eat and chew, it gives your stomach time to tell your brain that you are full which keeps your carb cravings at a minimum.
SunButter Natural, No Sugar Added Sunflower Butter
According to another dietitian Toby Amidor, M.S, R.D, due to the fact that it is healthy in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbs, SunButter is a great and tasty addition to your keto diet. This is especially because you cannot have regular peanut butter while on the keto diet. Plus, the sunflower seeds used in SunButter are locally grown, roasted, and processed in a peanut-free and tree nut-free facility making it fair game for those who might have nut allergies.
Sejoyia Chocolate Chip Coco-Roons
Jenn Fillenworth, M.S, R.D claims that these cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping you in ketosis. They are primarily made with coconut and cashews which are both rich in good fats. They also contain some coconut sugar and get the majority of their chocolate flavor from unsweetened chocolate. However, according to Fillenworth, a serving of two cookies contains eight grams of net carbs which might be a bit high for some keto dieters. So, she recommends sticking with one cookie to keep you on top of your diet.
