    11 Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Snacks That Are Actually Delicious

    Whether you have diabetes, a gluten intolerance, or you just feel like eating fewer carbs, these snacks are here for you (and they're all endorsed by a bona fide Person With Diabetes).

    Hi, I have type 1 diabetes (just like Mary Tyler Moore and Nick Jonas!) and I LOVE TO SNACK!

    Here are the best low-carb snacks I've encountered in my 15 years as a T1.

    And, bonus: They're all 100% gluten-free!

    1. All-natural turkey or beef sticks, a delicious, hormone- and antibiotic-free alternative to the gas station classic.

    2. Cheese crisps to scratch your chip itch, nearly carblessly.

    3. Pickle-flavored cashews, because there aren't enough low-carb snacks covered in flavor powder, and I cannot dill with it.

    4. Peanut butter packs that make a great snack, both as a solo artist or as part of an iconic duo.

    5. String cheese, a zero-carb snack that will take you right back to childhood.

    6. Packages of olives so you can enjoy olives wherever you are (even if you don't feel like carrying a full jar in your bag).

    7. Fancy popcorn that tastes every bit as good as it looks.

    8. Hard-boiled eggs, or: a little prep goes a long way.

    9. Crispy coconut chips, a savory/sweet treat for when you want something a little dessert-ish (without the blood sugar spike).

    10. Chili-lime pistachios for a snack with a deliciously spicy kick, aka the splurge-worthiest nut I have even encountered.

    11. Larabar Crunchy Nut and Seed Bars, because sometimes you want to eat a dang granola bar.

    Never let carb restrictions or gluten intolerance get in the way of ~snacking~.
