These keto travel snacks make it easier to stay on a keto or low carb diet wherever you go.
One of my goals with owning my own business was to be able to travel more. As things grow, I’m surprisingly having a hard time building it into my life! It’s almost as if I have to force travel time into my life and make it a priority. My goal in 2018 is to begin to change that.
Another goal of mine is to stick to a somewhat healthy (for me) lifestyle while I am out of my element traveling. Of course I want to indulge in the decadent foods that new places have to offer, but I know myself well enough to know that feeding myself food that doesn’t sit well with my body will ultimately make me feel like garbage and has the potential to ruin my travel by slowing me down and making me feel bad and guilty.
I do have some upcoming travel ahead to my hometown on the Jersey Shore. Even though I know I can’t stick 100% to my real food based, low carb, keto lifestyle, I do have some tricks up my sleeve to make sure I’m not snacking on garbage just for the hell of it.

Bullet Proof Coffee
One of the most important parts of my day is starting with my Bullet Proof Coffee. Say what you will about this concoction, but for ME it sets me up for success in my morning and keeps my energy flowing strong through tough cook dates. I wanted a way I could continue to have this each morning and luckily there are some amazing travel sized products available to help me keep at it.
This mug has easily become my ride or die. I used to scoff at people who purchased expensive Yeti products, but this mug is ony $24.99 and keeps my coffee hot for hours as I sip on it through early blogging mornings.
If you haven’t tried butter or ghee in your coffee, you’re missing out. I love the taste of butter and vanilla in my coffee. Usually I make my own ghee (see below for recipe) but I’m so happy to have these packets available for travel.
I could go on and on about the benefits of MCT oil but the main thing for me is that they are a quick energy source that rarely gets stored as fat. It’s literally brain fuel and helps keep me full throughout the morning.
Since it’s hard to emulsify coffee with oil, I needed something that would blend everything together without having all the oil sit on top. This travel frother does the trick perfectly and now I have no excuses.
These beef thins are unlike anything I’ve ever had. They are like crispy beef chips that have a solid crunch and excellent flavor. A perfect high protein low carb snack. I love buying the sample pack for a variety of keto travel snacks.
What I love about this recipe is that it is simple and customizable. You can use any combination of nuts you want and still have a crunchy coconut flavor that is filling and healthy.
Even with 9 grams of net carbs, I find these bites a perfect texture with a satisfying nut butter taste that goes perfect with coffee or when you’re somewhere with little healthy options… like the airport.
I fell in love with pork rinds when I started eating low carb as they are one of the few crunchy chip like snacks that fit within my personal dietary guidelines. I’ve tried SO many different kinds and these pork rinds by Bacon’s Heir are made with clean ingredients and have the best flavor combinations and texture around.
Being a certified nut butter addict, I’m glad that someone decided to make a clean nut butter in these awesome travel pouches. I can squeeze some out ont my favorite chocolate or just eat it straight from the pouch!
My love for 100% no sugar dark chocolate (aka real chocolate) has grown immensely. Now I can’t have sweet chocolate without thinking it tastes weird. These bars are split into 5 mini bars and are a perfect snack with nut butter on top.
This olive oil has one of the best tastes I’ve ever tried and comes in convenient packs to top your salad with.
My salt intake is serious! It helps keep me hydrated and feeling good. I’m definietly not afraid of real salt. What I am afraid of is salt that restaurants buy that has dextrose and anti-caking agents in it as fillers. I like bringing salt with me when I travel for my food AND to sprinkle some in my water especially in the summer.
This all in one electroylte supplement is perfect for summer trips when you’re dehydrated from the heat or alcohol consumption. With a full blend of vitamins, potassium, magnesium and sodium and a variety of flavors. This is a great keto travel snacks go to!
