Pili Hunters was founded on adventure, so we know how necessary it is to have a great Keto snack that’s perfect for traveling. While packing for all of your summertime travels, don’t forget to stock up on the best part of road trips - snacks. Here are seven Keto friendly snacks perfect for your next summertime (or any time of year) road trip.
Avocado is a great Keto-friendly snack. However, this fruit can be a little frustrating to cut with plastic knives, so if you have some spare time before your departure, cut the avocado into slices beforehand then place in a reusable glassware container so you don’t have to worry about any slicing and dicing on the road.
Tip: Blend one avocado + 1/4 cup of coconut milk or coconut cream + ⅛ cup of cocoa powder + 1 tsp vanilla + a drizzle of honey (or monk fruit syrup or Stevia) and enjoy a chocolate avocado mousse. (Yeah, it’s just as good as it sounds).
Crazy about coconut? Shredded and unsweetened coconut is a delicious road trip snack. Whether you grab a handful straight from the bag or add some to a batch of homemade trail mix, coconut pairs well with almost anything. Need some trail mix ingredient ideas? Try some Keto friendly options like cocoa nibs, flax seeds, Pili Hunters Pili Nuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts and walnuts drizzled together a spoonful of honey or maple syrup. (Remember to share).
#3 Fat Bombs
Fat bombs are a favorite of ours no matter what time of year. Super simple to make and even more delicious, whip up a batch or two before your day away and enjoy them to keep your stomach satiated and your taste buds satisfied. Need some fat bomb recipe inspiration? Try these:
#4 Fresh Fruit
Swing by your local community farmers market before you hit the road and stock up on fresh fruit like figs and apricots, which are both naturally low in carbohydrates. If you are craving some fresh fruit and want to keep it Keto friendly, stick to just one fig or one apricot, you can also try a handful of Salted Caramel Pili Nuts from Pili Hunters..
Beef jerky and pork rinds are great for a busy summertime schedule or chaotic calendar. Stock up on your favorite brands and bring them along for your road trip to help keep hunger at bay until you reach your final destination.
#6 Nuts and Nut Butters
Nuts, seeds, nut butters and seed butters are all perfect options for a quick and easy Keto snack. Stock up on Pili Hunters Pili Nuts, your other favorite nuts and seeds and a jar of nut butter. Enjoy a spoonful of nut or seed butter on its own or spread a top your favorite fruit and veggies. Cucumber slices dipped in Pili Hunters Expedition Fuel anyone?
Just because you are Keto doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your favorite vegetables. If you plan on packing a cooler for your summertime road trip, stock it with freshly made salads made with Keto friendly options like Alfalfa sprouts, arugula, beet greens, chard, collard greens, dandelion greens, endives, lettuce, radicchio and spinach. Be sure to load up your salad with Keto friendly vegetables such as chives, cilantro, cucumber slices, garlic, ginger, white button mushrooms, peppers, radishes, tomatoes and zucchini. Add some quality sources of fat like avocado slices, nuts, seeds or pack a miniature bottle of avocado oil and/or extra virgin olive oil to drizzle on your salad. Pili Hunters Pili Nuts make a great addition to any salad and deliver a delicious crunch.
No matter where your summertime travels take you, you (and your stomach) will be set for your next big adventure with these seven Keto friendly snacks.
