The low-carb trend may seem as old school as fax machines, but eating naturally low-carb foods (I’m looking at you veggies and lean protein) will always be good for your health. Everyone needs some healthy utility players in the fridge that can make snacks and meals a little better.

Here’s a list of my of some of my favorite low-carb, nutrient-dense, tasty foods.

A third of an avocado has only 5 grams of carbs and, aside from being Instagram famous, it’s also known for being high in monounsaturated healthy fats, which helps lower bad cholesterol and is linked with burning belly fat.

Mash an avocado into hummus for the perfect hybrid dip for crudité, top an apple slice (yes this is delish!) or of course, there’s that whole toast thing.

A whole cup will cost you only 30 calories and contains just 6 grams of carbs, but has an impressive 3 grams of fiber and, like other cruciferous vegetables, is rich in cancer-fighting compounds called glucosinolates.
