These ketone replacements aren’t the same as fast food.

It doesn’t mean you can’t eat snacks if you’ve chosen a keto diet. If you’re wanting something sweet, try one of these keto-friendly alternatives.

1. Do you need a cheese nacho? The quest chip must be cracked.


To serve: 1 sachet (32 g) | cal : 140 Total fat: 6 g Total carbohydrates: 5 g (1 g fiber, <1 g sugar) Protein: 18 g

Crunchy chips are the best, and these Quest protein-packed chips fulfill munching desires. Erika, one of our team members, and her children like it!

2. Do you need the gratification of sugared cereals? On top, sprinkle some magic granola.


(taste of fruit) 3/4 cup serving size | calorie count: 110 6 g total fat 8 g total carbs (2 g fiber, 0 g sugar) 12 g protein

Is it possible to make porridge without a lot of carbohydrates? Magical! The delectable curls from Magic Cereal come in five distinct flavors, but they are very pricey. However, if you’ve been missing your cereal, it may be worth it.

3. Do you want a bagel? Pick up a bag from the GLC bakery.


(All) 1 bagel (about 65 calories) 1 g total fat 16 g total carbs (14 g fiber, 0 g sugar) 12 g protein

This Great Low Carbread Company bagel has just 2 grams of net carbohydrates and comes in natural, different flavors, and cinnamon. Remember to keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to consume them if you purchase them from Netrition.

4. Dr Pepper, would you want a drink? Dr. Zevia, please open.


1 glass has 0 calories, 0 grams of total fat, 0 grams of total carbs (0 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar), and 0 grams of protein.

Dr Zevia’s sweetened stevia drink will quench your thirst, and you’ll wonder why you ever needed sugar. Other popular sugar-free lemonade flavors from Zevia include Cola, Ginger Root, and Mountain Zevia.

5. Do you like a slice of cheesecake? To make the cheese mixture, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.

cal : 170 | operation: 23 Croûtons 10 g total fat 1 g total carbs (0 g fibre, 0 g sugar) 13 g protein

But beware: they’re very addicting! Cello’s Cheese Whisps are a favorite of ours. If you like cheese and crunch, these are the snacks for you.

Colleen like parmesan crisps as well.

6. Would you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Take note of the sugar-free option.


3 pieces per serving | 110 calories 8 g total fat 16 g total carbs (3 g fibre, 0 g sugar, 12 g sugar alcohol) 2 g protein

If you can’t keep your sweet appetite in check, try Reese’s sugar-free peanut butter mini sandwiches. Keep in mind that they contain maltitol, so keep your amounts in check! Lily’s chocolate bars, for example, are stevia-flavored chocolates.

7. How about a piece of toffee? Have a keto bar on hand.


(Peanut butter chocolate chips) 1 bar | 189 calories | 21 g total fat | 11 g total carbs (9 g fiber, 1 g sugar) | 11 g protein

These low-protein, high-fat snacks have a caramel flavor. They have a delectable taste and texture that our employees can’t get enough of, and they come in five luscious varieties. We really like these keto bars, which fulfill a chocolate need without adding sugar.

8. Do you want your fries to be crispy? Pig skins chosen from 4505 Meats.


(Chili Classic) 1/2 oz. serving size (14 g) 80 calories | 5 grams of total fat | 0 grams of total carbs (0 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar) | 9 grams of protein

Even if you’ve never liked pig rinds before, you should give this brand a try. Unlike other brands, which sometimes have extremely hard bits in the bag, their chicharrones are light and airy with just the right amount of crunch. Colleen is a huge fan of them.

Treat yourself to a few of these substitute foods and you’ll be surprised at how similar they taste to the real thing. Of course, for the best results, you should make these substitutions for real, instead of opting for the convenient low-carb products that many grocery stores and restaurants offer..
