    Mamma Chia's squeeze snacks are USDA organic, non-GMO verified, gluten-free, and vegan.

    Promising review: "These are so nice on the go! I keep one in my purse so I’m less likely to grab junk food when I’m the go. They taste good and even my kids like them. If you haven’t had chia seeds before or have a texture issue beware the chia seeds turn into gelatinous little balls similar to tapioca balls, but with a tiny crunchy center." —Dana

    Promising review: "Good taste, good price, and a wonderful snack while on a low-carb diet. I like to take long road trips and in tedious stretches of highway I listen to audiobooks, but get the munchies. Hard to satisfy on a low carb diet. These help. No negatives so far." —Tom

    Net carbs: 1g/serving

    4. Gourmet paleo and vegan chocolate bars that will totally change how you think of sweets.

    I have a box of these in my house and I seriously can't believe they are as delicious as they are. I try to stay away from sweets because dairy regularly upsets my stomach, but these are dairy-free and made with organic cocoa so my belly is always happy after I snack on one of these.

    Net Carbs: ~13g/serving (depending on flavor)

    Get it from Hu's Kitchen for $25+ (available in eight flavors).

    Promising review: "I was a bit dubious, especially after opening the package to find strange green, paper-like sheets of...snacks? But they're SO GOOD!! I'm on a low-carb diet and since I don't want to eat chips, these are a great healthy alternative when you're looking for salty and crispy." —Amazon Customer

    Plus they come in four different flavors so you always have options!

    Promising review: "Deee-licious! In March of this year, I changed my way of life by moving into low-carb eating. For me it has been easy-peasy giving up sugar, bread, and pasta, but finding the best food to pack for lunch can sometimes be a challenge. These olives are fabulous, delicious, and easy. The ingredients are perfect if you are working at feeding yourself clean food." —Trishbooklover

    Net carbs: <1g/serving

    Get a variety pack of 12 on Amazon for $14.47+ (also available in four individual flavors).

    7. Fancy popcorn you will never tire of, considering it comes in TONS of yummy flavors.

    Promising review: "I love this popcorn! I regularly order this package of popcorn because I love having it at the office. My friends at work and I frequently get a bit hungry at 3 pm, so it's so nice to have a healthy, portioned snack mid-afternoon that requires no prep or refrigeration. It's packaged nicely in a sturdy cardboard box and the popcorn is in thick, well sealed bags. Love this product!" —Hillary

    These fruit leathers have no added sugars, synthetic colors, artificial flavors, or preservatives, and are gluten-free and vegan.

    Promising review: "Yummy! Our box just arrived and already our kids have declared that these are AMAZING! Our super picky 6-year-old daughter, who refuses most everything, has already eaten three of these this morning. Guess we should have bought more. They are very different from fruit 'gummies', but in a great way — no added sugar or preservatives, they are non-GMO, and each bar contains a 1/4 of fruit and only 45 calories. These will be a staple in our theme park bag and kids lunches." —ShirleynDeanna

    Get 48-count variety pack from Amazon for $11.63.

    12. Thin crackers with a savory salt and pepper flavor so you can still enjoy that crispiness you might be missing from carb-loaded chips.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love these paleo thin crackers. As someone who tries to eat mostly carb/sugar/processed-free food, I think these are an alternative to that crunch I miss so much from crackers and even dare say corn chips (salsa/guacamole addict). I use this with all kinds of salads and even salsa. They have the perfect crisp/crunch like a cracker and the flavor is pretty awesome for the ingredient list (not being packed with a whole bunch of CRAP). The only downsize is the price, it's a shame that crackers cost $10 for such a regular sized box but for those on my kind of diet, there aren't many options out there. I'm also used to paying top dollar for crap-free products like these so I just eat them sparingly. SIDE NOTE: I have opened the box over 14 days ago and they still taste fresh. Great!" —Alicia

    Net carb: 5g/serving

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    13. Strawberry cream cheese bites because you shouldn't have to give up *all* of your favorite sweets in the name of low carbs.,

    Net carbs: 1.79g/per bite

    Get the recipe from Tasty.

    14. Toasted coconut chips that are just as good as a solo snack as they are on top of yogurt or oatmeal — or salads or whatever you want!

    Promising review: "There are no words to describe these but I'll try! A co-worker of mine brought these in last week for me to try and I was on Amazon ordering them within minutes. Even if you are not a big fan of coconut, don't let that discourage you from at least trying these little slices of heaven! They are melt-in-your-mouth buttery, coconut goodness. To think they are healthy on top of that is mind blowing. They truly are an exceptional product. I surprised my family with a whole box of these and it was gone within days and it was their first time ever trying them. These coconut chips really are for everyone. They are totally worth the price." —JENCARPENTER33

    Net carbs: ~10g/serving (varies with flavors)

    Get a variety four-pack from Amazon for $31.18 (available in four individual flavors).

    15. Favorful beef sticks made with hormone- and antibiotic-free meat.

    They are gluten-free and made with no added sugars.

    Promising review: "Tastes great, easy to store, and easy to pack in a lunch, purse, and/or you name it. My entire family is very much enjoying these. I ended up hiding them so that I could use Nick's Sticks for after school snacks. If I hadn't hidden them, the entire package would've been gone in a day! I appreciate that these beef sticks are made with 100% grass fed beef. I will order these again." —gottaread

    Net carbs: 0g/serving

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99.

    16. OR! turkey jerky you can feel good about because it's prepared with grass-fed, antibiotic-free meat and no preservatives.

    This turkey jerky is gluten-, hormone-, and antibiotic-free and made with organic ingredients.

    Promising review: "Ran across this brand on a flight. The beef jerkies were great and I decided on trying a few of the variety they offered. Turkey hickory smoked was the first to arrive. The most tender turkey jerky and soo good. Give it a go. Forgot to mention, look at the ingredients. All natural goodness." —Amazon Customer

    Net carbs: ~5g/serving

    Get it from Amazon for $11.47+ (available in 13 sizes and eight flavors, including beef jerky options).

    17. Amazing chia bars you can quickly grab as you head out the door. They are packed with real ingredients that will keep you feeling full and healthy in between meals.

    Instagram: @healthwarrior

    These bars provide fiber, omega-3s, protein, antioxidants, magnesium, calcium, and iron and are 100% vegan.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these on a whim and to my surprise I discovered that I absolutely love them! They are tasty, good for me, and have saved me from constipation. TMI, I know, but 'perfect poop' people! I saw a gastroenterologist about seven weeks ago who had me on lots of Metamucil and stool softeners. I don't have to take any of that when I eat these. My gut feels balanced — no bloating or irritation (IBS). I'll have try some of the other flavors as well." —J. Holmes

    Net carbs: ~11g/serving (depending on flavor)

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $12.96+ (available in 13 flavors).

    18. And these all-natural, freeze-dried edamame packs that are lightly-seasoned so you can easily satisfy your salty snack cravings.

    Promising review: "I love edamame prepared pretty much any way, but I normally just steam them. It's delicious, but messy and takes a lot of time to squeeze them out of the pods. I wanted to try these because they are simple and quick, and I can take them with me. I got the lightly seasoned, and they are tasty! I love the texture of them. They aren't super crunchy like the fried soybeans or trail mixes I've had. The texture is different, and satisfying. These are a much healthier snack than a lot of other things I could be taking with me, and they actually fill me up and make me feel better. I wish they came in bigger boxes. I will easily go through eight of these. BTW I looked around, and Amazon has the best price I could find on these." —DesertMom

    Net carbs: ~7g/serving (varies with each flavor)

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six flavors).
