As someone who has to eat a low-carb diet for my health, snacking can be a little complicated, especially if I am on the go. Most easy-to-grab options are high carb, high sugar, which, while delicious, are not helpful for my dietary program. Luckily, there have never been better, more delicious protein-rich snacks on the market. Whether you're a cheese fan, a meat lover, or both, check out my 8 favorite cheese and meat snacks to buy right now.

Upgraded jerky: Krave Jerky

Most jerky is nearly more chemicals than meat, and often has a texture like tree bark. Not Krave brand. I love the chewy but supple texture and amazing flavors like Black Cherry Barbecue Pork and Chili Lime Beef. Beyond snacking, I sometimes use them for cooking in things like fried rice or Thai style beef salads.
