I don't usually go on diets, but when I do, I think about eating ALL. THE. TIME. To those on low-carb diets, I've compiled 10 fantastic paleo and keto desserts and snacks that'll curb your carb cravings. I also took the time to curate a selection that is beyond peanut butter and chocolate because really, you can't eat those two things all the time or you'll get sick of them.

Oh, by the way, the beauty of such easy paleo and keto desserts and snacks is that you can mix and match to your tastes. So while the chia seed pudding above calls for green tea, add coffee is that's more to your liking.
