Cubed meat and cheese is a solid option for a low-carb snack, as it can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until needed. Cook lean meat, like pork or beef tenderloin, and cut it into cubes. Use toothpicks to skewer the meat with small amounts of cheese to add flavor.

An egg salad featuring egg whites, diced fresh vegetables, and plain, fat-free yogurt also makes a delicious snack option with virtually zero carbohydrates. Fresh celery, onions or bell peppers can be used to add a bit of crunch to the salad.

Roll-ups are a great alternative to traditional wraps that feature carbohydrate-heavy tortillas. A butterhead lettuce leaf can be used to replace the tortilla while adding a contrasting texture. Low-carb roll-ups may be filled with lean meats, hard boiled eggs and low-fat cheese, along with add-ins such as cilantro, green chillies, red peppers and baby spinach. Dressings or condiments such as balsamic vinegar may also be added to enhance taste.
