The best solution is making it yourself to avoid nasty oils and preservatives. The following recipe from “Ditch The Carbs” walks you through making your very own pork crackling.
Keto Salmon Cream Cheese Bites
Salmon and cream cheese seem to be made for each other. Aside from the excellent taste combination, smoked salmon is full of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

One quick tip though…put the salmon in after you pour the quiche mixture in for the best outcome.

BLT Lettuce Wrap
There’s probably no greater combination for a sandwich in the world than bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
