10 Low-Carb Snacks for Managing Diabetes

Keeping blood sugar levels stable is very important for people with diabetes. While giving you energy all day, snacks that are low in carbs can help keep your blood sugar from rising too quickly. Here are ten tasty and healthy low-carb snacks that are great for people with diabetes.


1. Nuts and Seeds

Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, and pumpkin seeds are low-carb snacks. They contain healthful fats, protein, and fiber, which balance blood sugar. Munching on a handful of nuts or seeds helps satisfy hunger between meals.

2. Vegetable Sticks with Hummus

Hummus with crunchy carrots, celery, and bell peppers make a tasty, low-carb snack. Chickpeas are low in carbs and high in fiber and protein, making hummus a great veggie dip.

3. Hard-Boiled Eggs

Diabetes patients can nibble on eggs because they're high in protein and low in carbohydrates. Hard-boiled eggs are portable, easy to make, and delicious alone or with salt & pepper.

4. Berry Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is a wonderful choice for regulating blood sugar because it has fewer carbohydrates and more protein than ordinary yogurt. Fresh strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries add sweetness and fiber to Greek yogurt.

5. Sliced Cheese with Tomatoes

Low-carb cheese is a filling snack with protein and healthy fats. Cheese and tomato slices offer taste and freshness without carbs. Choose low-fat cheese to cut calories.

6. Cheese and Tomato Slices

Tuna salad on cucumber slices is a low-carb, protein- and healthy-fat-rich snack. For a lower-carb tuna salad, use Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.

7. Cucumber Slices with Tuna Salad

Avocados are abundant in healthy fats, fiber, and potassium and low in carbohydrates. Protein and creaminess from avocado and cottage cheese provide a pleasant snack that can help control blood sugar.

8. Edamame

Young soybeans, or edamame, are a low-carb snack high in protein, fiber, folate, and vitamin K. Steamed edamame pods with sea salt make a tasty snack.

9. Smoked Salmon Roll-Ups

Smoked salmon folded with cream cheese and cucumber slices is a low-carb, protein- and fat-rich snack. The flavors and textures will fulfill your appetites without raising your blood sugar.

10. Kale Chips

Diabetes patients can enjoy crunchy, healthy kale chips as a low-carb snack. For a guilt-free snack, sprinkle kale leaves with olive oil and your preferred seasonings and bake until crispy.
