Healthy Low Carb Supermarket Finds

mm shop 2

I have many patients who are on low carb diets, whether it’s for diabetes, PCOS, weight loss or  just personal preference. So of course, I’m always on the lookout for new products. I’m particularly interested in items that can be made into quick dinners or ideas for portion controlled snacks. I found 8 new healthy low carb supermarket finds. They all have 8 grams of carbs or less per serving (except for the crackers and dip!)


8 Healthy Low Carb Supermarket Finds


  • trader joes carrot spiralsTrader Joes Frozen Carrot Spirals and Zucchini Spirals
    There are two ingredients in every bag: carrots and sea salt. Nothing else. The carrots, grown in Italy, are washed, peeled, and cut into Spirals that resemble long pasta cuts like spaghetti and fettuccine. The Spirals are steamed, cooked just enough to achieve al dente texture, making them even more like pasta. You just take them out of the package and cook them in a skillet – from frozen! Add a bit of olive oil to keep them from sticking to the pan (and each other), then add any other seasoning or sauce.

  • SC (Say Cheese) Cheesecake
    You might think it’s strange that a nutritionist is recommending cheesecakes …. but this is one little tasty treat! One of my clients told me about this mini cheesecake that was  only 90 calories. I thought for sure she must be reading the label wrong (sorry to doubt you Susan!), so I went to Matter of Health to scope it out. Yup – assuming they aren’t lying on the label, this mini cheesecake is only 95 calories!

  • NuCoCoconut wraps
    If you are a low carber, you know how hard it can be to find a really low carb bread or wrap. Most slices of bread have at least 15 gm of carbs and some wraps can have as much as 45 gm. Well look no further! This is one of lowest I’ve found. But don’t expect it to have the texture or taste of bread. It’s made from coconut so will obviously have that taste – as well as a slight sweet taste. I thought it was quite different tasting – but pretty good!
