Best Low Carb Snack Ideas & Recipes
When you are lacking energy, it’s normal to reach for a snack before your next meal. It’s how we all bridge the hunger gap between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
In fact, healthy snacking can actually prevent overeating, and it’s also a good way to add more nutrients to our daily diets. Snacking can also reduce stress and improve our focus and productivity.
Where our snacking may get us into trouble is when the carbohydrates start to add up. Don’t get us wrong: carbohydrates are critical forthe body’s functioning. They are essential to cell function — their primary role is to supply energy to all cells in the body.
Most of the carbohydrates in the foods we eat are digested and broken down into glucose before entering the bloodstream and many cells prefer glucose as a source of energy versus other compounds like fatty acids.
Some cells, such as red blood cells, are only able to produce cellular energy from glucose. Science is pretty amazing, huh?
Though they are important, too many carbs cause negative side effects, like making you feel tired, bloated, or gain unwanted weight. The worst side effect of eating carbs is that they can actually make you feel hungrier, leading to overeating.
