Just The Cheese: A salty, crunchy gluten-free and carb-free snack

I love salty snacks – my favorite is the (maybe not so healthy) bag of Lay’s chips – but I’m also trying to eat better. I’m not giving up my salt fix, though. My new favorite are the snacks from Just The Cheese. It’s literally just cheese. There’s a variety of flavors of these baked cheese snacks, all of which are high in protein, gluten-free, and low-carb.

If you’re on a keto diet, you’ll definitely want to try these – it’ll fit your plan and give you some of that crunch you might have been missing.

Unlike a slice of cheddar, which needs to be refrigerated, Just The Cheese snacks are ready to be thrown in a purse or running bag for a quick bite that satisfies both your hunger and your need for the crunch and the salt. Some flavors are sold as bars, others are sold as “minis,” which are little bite-size pieces (about the size of a quarter). They also work great dotting a salad for a little added crunch.

Minis flavors include Wisconsin Cheddar, Grilled Cheese, White Cheddar, Jalapeno, and Garlic and Chive. The bars are available in all these except the Garlic and Chive, which also happens to be my favorite flavor. I prefer the minis because I can then share a few (just a few!) with my kiddos, who only want to eat what someone else is presently eating. Kids are so predictable.

Nutrition information for the bars is available here online. The bars are 150 calories per serving with 8g of protein per serving and the minis are 95 per serving with 5g of protein.

About Kelly Barten (1056 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
