Keto Snacks on the Go
When you’re out and about and need to refuel keto style
Have you been following the ketogenic way of eating but found yourself stuck for food that won’t throw you out of ketosis when you’re on the road or rushing around doing those pesky errands? Have you considered what keto snacks on the go would be?
Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we could all have a portable fridge to take with use everywhere with our leftovers or fresh food etc. Unfortunately this not very practical getting on with our day to day activities.
It would also be great to stick to only real food, unprocessed, even raw. While this is always the better choice, if you are out and about and get hungry, you won’t want to cave and succumb to a high carb, sugary or savoury option. I’m all for being realistic and trying to make things easier where possible.
So to be prepared just in case you need to eat something but can’t find a keto friendly option when you’re out, I’ve created this list of foods. Handy on the go keto snacks that won’t throw you out of ketosis while you are getting on with your day.
Perfect Keto Bars
These babys have been developed and worked on over a 12 month period, creating a real ingredients bar without the nasty chemicals, fillers or sugar syrups.
They contain 19 grams of the healthy fats that help with hair skin and nail health. With 10 grams of protein and only 3 grams of carbs, these snacks on the go ensure you stay in ketosis with the right macros. Comes in the delicious flavor using almond and cacao butter.
Kiss My Keto Bars
There’s a variety of flavors including Chocolate Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Chocolate Coconut.
These also have the perfect macros ratio of 19 grams fat, 9 grams protein and 3 grams carbs. Ensuring this snack on the go will keep you in ketosis and not reaching for the high carb sugary options. They have the addition of MCT’s and prebiotic fiber, helping you manage any cravings to get you through your busy day.
There are a couple of options here.
These KetoBrownie bars come in 2 flavors, Keto Blondie and Chocolate Almond. Pictured is the KetoBlondie flavor.
The second brownie is the Atkins Endulge Brownie Bar. Here’s another chocolate brownie for an alternative to the above brownie option. This one has only 2 grams of carbs. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have some variety, so you don’t have the same one over and over. Not that you will be having these treats too frequently, it’s also good to have alternative options for those on the go keto snacks.
Protein Bar – Doctor’s CarbRite Protein
Then there’s these little gems that meet the keto criteria of low carb, sugar free and portable. They are also deliciously high in the healthy fats which will help you feel full and eat less. They also only have 1.5 net carbs. You aren’t likely to over eat on these treasures, so they will be a handy on the go keto snack with added nutrition of protein.
This has such a great name, I love it! No added sugar, with only 2 grams net carbs per serve.
Another cool thing about these is that they use Monk Fruit instead of any artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. The awesome thing about monk fruit is it’s a natural sweetener. It’s made using a fruit found in Southeast Asia known as monk fruit. It was originally used by monks, hence the name. Flavors include almonds, hazelnut, coconut and peanut.
If you don’t have a sweet tooth which isn’t surprising once you go keto, then you might not want any of the above options as one of your keto snacks on the go. Don’t have a freak out! It’s okay, there are savory options also available for you too!
If you are looking for something that is less sweet tasting, but more savoury instead, there’s these cheese bars made in a variety of 4 flavors. These are Jalapeno, Grilled Cheese, Aged Cheddar & Mild Cheddar. They also come a smaller 16 half-ounce packs which have more flavors – White Cheddar, Wisconsin Cheddar and Garlic and Chive.
These would also make a great school lunch idea to replace those sugary options with these fabulous cheese bars instead.
So get your cheese on and take these with you when you know you’ve got a big day ahead and need something quick, easy and portable
I hesitated in including nuts as they are not created, or processed in any way, however the humble nut, especially the low carb ones are perfect options for if you are out and about, and need to munch on something. They are often found in a low carb kitchen, so it’s handy to through together your fave nuts in a container and take with you to munch on and get you through the day keto style. Nuts have such value to the keto way of eating as they contain high amounts of healthy fats, filling you up faster while also being low carb. To find out what the carbs are in nuts pop over to this post where I have this listed.
What is a keto snack without mention of jerky. What I love about these is they don’t have added sugar. Having been cured over a 14 day period is also appealing as this makes them more tender. They don’t have any artificial additives unlike regular Jerky, and they are sourced from grass-fed beef. These are also a great alternative to protein shakes. Perfect for you to take on the go.
These are handy sticks of high protein meaty goodness. Made with Black Angus Beef, Street Cart Shawarma and Lamb Merguez flavors.
These are definitely keto friendly. They are high protein, low carb and sugar free go anywhere salami sticks.
Put it all Together
So I hope this list of sweet and savory keto snacks on the go gives you some ideas to keep you in ketosis instead of kicking you out when you’re out and about :).
