On-the-Go Keto Snacks to Satisfy Your Sweet (or Salty) Tooth
Keto, or the ketogenic diet, is known for a menu heavy on fats and light on carbs. In the past, this meant that people who ate this way were limited in snack options to things like hard boiled eggs, nuts and jerky. But as the eating style has gained in popularity, snack options have expanded to include ones that mimic starch-filled favorites like chips. Here are a few to consider.
Keto “chips” are often made from vegetables, almond flour, cheese or a blend of milk and whey compounds. Look for individual snack packs you can stash in your bag or bring along to a picnic or gathering.
When hunger hits, bars are a no-brainer option to fill you up and keep your energy from flagging. They can also be easily stowed in your purse, glove compartment, and cabinets for whenever you need a pick me up.
When looking for keto-friendly snack foods, look for ingredients like almond flour and coconut sugar, two lower-starch ingredients that can mimic the flour-and-sugar mouth feel of traditional treats. Ketogenic snacks may be pricier than their “traditional” counterparts, partially due to the range of ingredients used.
