Slow Carb Snack Idea

When following a slow carb diet, you rarely will feel the urge to snack. Gone are the cravings for candy, chocolate, and junk food. Following a strict slow carb diet will always leave you feeling content and satisfied. However, when hunger does strike, sometimes finding an appropriate slow carb snack in between meals that doesn't require time to cook (E.g. chicken, beans, etc.) can be challenging. Here is one snack that hits the spot and doesn't break any slow carb rules.
Next time you are feeling hungry, try loading up a stalk of celery with almond butter. Depending on the size of the stalk, you can get from 1-2 tbsp of almond butter on to it. Natural almond butter has a different (and I think better) flavor than peanut butter, which is a nice compliment to the celery. It also comes loaded with all the protein and healthy fats of regular nuts, but without the ability to eat it by the handful.  Sometimes, I've been guilty of just eating a spoonful of almond butter straight out of the jar, which is always fun trying to get off the roof of my mouth. I initially had trouble finding almond butter in the supermarket until i checked the natural foods aisle. Give it a try, and I'm sure that you will also enjoy it!
