5 Healthy Snacks Under 5 Grams of Carbs at 31Daily.com

Are you hungry between meals? Thinking about lunch when you’ve just had breakfast?




If you are counting carbs, you’ll want to know about these “Five Under Five” low-carb snacks.  Each snack has a hit of protein, fiber, and fat, but is less than 5 grams of net carb per serving.

Snack #1: Ricotta Cheese with Raspberries

Combine 1/3 cup whole milk ricotta cheese with 1/4 cup raspberries. If you’d like an addition, sprinkle flaxseed meal or other seeds or chopped nuts on the top (but count the carbs). Add zero-carb sweetener if desired. Check labels on the brand of ricotta you get. Frozen raspberries may have a little more carb because more of them fit in a given volume (freezing makes them shrink). To make a deluxe version, mix a little cream in with the ricotta, as pictured.
