Low carb nachos

Nachos are one of those snacks many people miss when following a low carb lifestyle.  Well with these soy bean sheets, you no longer have to.  These sheets are available at Asian markets in the refrigerated section.  When fried and seasoned they make a great nacho replacement.

Quick Lowcarb snack. Pepperoni chips

This is a go to snack for me. You can buy big bags of pepperoni slices (meant for pizza topping) very affordably. All you do is lay them out on a couple paper towels and microwave for 2-3 mins. Watch carefully during the last minute and remove slices that have turned brown.
