Hi guys! For those of you on the Keto llifestyle.. what do you snack on? I’m finding this difficult. Nuts are easy to overeat.
What about coconut bacon? I'm not keto myself, but coconut bacon is probably the best thing I've ever eaten.

Once you are fat adapted you really shouldn't be hungry and need snacks. That said, I enjoy snack sized cheeses, bacon, and the occasional ounce of macadamia nuts
True, it's not a whole food, but it may not be as bad for us as the name implies: https://nutritionfacts.org/2015/04/14/does-liquid-smoke-cause-cancer/
this is my simple go to treat/snack. chocolate/coffee "mouse". just take some double/heavy cream [i usually wait till my cream is half empty, then use the rest for this], throw in a teaspoon of instant coffee and a heaped teaspoon of your favourite cocoa powder and add some sweetener if you want and then whisk it up either by hand or a stick blender until it gets firm.
Stick in the fridge and then have a teaspoon of it whenever you want.
I like to snack on pork rinds. They have the salty that I love and the crunch. I weigh out my ounce and enjoy each bite !
Right now I have a mix of peanut butter, crushed walnuts, and coconut oil that Ive mixed together and kept in the fridge. When I feel the urge to snack, I just cut off about an ounce or so. Almost like a fat bomb. Very filling, I think. Usually curbs the urge to snack for me.
coconut bacon??? that's a real thing? where's the recipe, MUST have!!!!
This is the one I make... You can just leave out the maple syrup to keep the CHO low (or use maple flavoring/extract): https://minimalistbaker.com/easy-coconut-bacon/
