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.
