Carbohydrates are usually converted to fat thus making you have your undesired body shape. If you want to lose weight, you need to reduce the amount of carbohydrates that you take. If you have been wondering which are the best low carb snacks that you can prepare in your home, here they are:
You make this using 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 egg white, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of onion powder, 3 cups of whole unblanched almonds, ½ teaspoon of salt, and 8 teaspoons of Italian seasoning.
You should put egg white, spices and salt in a large bowl and then whisk them using oil. You should then add nuts and mix them well in order to coat the almonds evenly. You should then bake them at 275º for 45 minutes.
For ideal results you should ensure that you stir after every 10 minutes. By doing this you should be able to make 3 cups. If you don’t want to take the snack when you finish preparing it, you should consider freezing it.
Karen’s coconut crunch
You should prepare the crunch using 1 cup of finely chopped pecans, 1 cup of sliced almonds, 18 grams of unsweetened coconut, 2 tablespoons of Da Vinci sugar free syrup, praline flavor or vanilla, 1 egg white, ¼ cup of granular Splenda and pinch salt.
You should start by tossing nuts and coconut in a medium bowl. You should then drizzle in the syrup and toss to coat the nuts. In a small bowl, you should beat the egg white with the Splenda and salt until soft peaks form. You should then add the egg whites to the mixture and gently toss them in order to coat them well.
While stirring occasionally you should bake the mixture at 350º for 15-20 minutes. To know when the crunch is ready you should look at the color-the crunch tends to turn dark near the end of baking time.
Vanilla not cake
You should prepare this one with 4 tablespoons of butter, ¼ cups of granular Splenda, ½ cups of vanilla whey protein powder and 1 egg. You should bake the mixture at 325º for 8 minutes or until it sets.
