Full Answer

Most types of meat, including beef, pork, chicken and lamb, are free from carbohydrates. Seasonings such as vegetable oil and salt are also carbohydrate-free. A few strips of chicken or beef cooked using a small amount of vegetable oil makes a healthy, high-protein snack.

Atkins.com provides some low-carbohydrate snack suggestions, including celery sticks stuffed with cream cheese, half of a Haas avocado, one deviled egg or slices of ham wrapped around raw or cooked green beans. Each of these snack suggestions contains fewer than 3 grams of carbohydrates per serving.

Carbohydrate-free cheeses include cheddar, Parmesan, Camembert and Muenster. Heavy cream and regular mayonnaise are also free from carbohydrates; however, these foods are high in fat and should be eaten in moderation.

Fruits that contain small amounts of carbohydrates include blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. These berries each contain between 5 and 6 grams of carbohydrates per 100-gram serving. Cherry tomatoes contain roughly the same amount. Swiss chard contains about 1 gram of carbohydrates per cup, and mushrooms have about 2 grams per cup.
