Most meats, including seafood, are as close to "zero carb" as you're likely to find. I love them! If you like shrimp, see if you can find langostinos. They taste like little lobsters, but are about the size of medium shrimp. I get mine from our local chain grocery (Publix) already shelled and cooked. I just pull a handful out of the freezer and defrost them in a small cup of water.... yummy quick snack, or even a meal (on salad, in a sauce, in soup....).
Green leafies are also very minimal in carbs.
I absolutely *love* fruit... but the sugars are too high to really be in the "low carb" list. At least, not by the prescribed diet we're on.
For snacks, I like jerky and pork rinds, and we eat lots of hard-boiled eggs. Even pre-cooked bacon. I cook a couple packages and refrigerate them, and then pull out a few slices and toast them in the toaster oven to crisp them up.
There's lots of food lists for low-carbing. Go on a search! I bet you'll find lots of possibilities.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
