On the ketogenic diet, you may discover that you really don’t need to snack! All the fats that you consume will provide plenty of energy to keep you going throughout the day. However, there are times when you don’t know where your next meal is coming from. Traveling and road trips are times when it is better to have a ketogenic snack handy because you don’t know if the next restaurant you will be at will have much more for you than a simple chicken salad.
Here are some of the best ketogenic snack ideas that you can make that travel well and can tide you over until you can prepare a wonderful ketogenic meal for yourself!

The Better than Coffee Chocolate energy bars have 8 grams of carbohydrate, which can fit well into a daily ketogenic diet as long as you aren’t consuming more than 12 grams of carbohydrate for your other meals. Many people are able to do this by focusing on proteins and leafy green vegetables, so when they do need a snack, they can indulge with an energy bar!
FAT BOMBS AS A KETOGENIC SNACK
One thing that you can do is make fat bombs. I’m not particularly skilled at fat bombs. I’ve tried my own recipes a few times, but haven’t quite found my groove with fat bombs. Sometimes they are so yummy, I want to eat all of them at once. Other times, I just leave them in the freezer and forget about them. However, they are great at increasing your fat intake for the day and providing you with the energy that you may need. There are lots of recipes for them online as well! Check them out and try your hand at fat bombs. They just may become your next ketogenic obsession. The great thing is that there are sweet and savory options when it comes to fat bombs! I like to melt some cheese in the microwave and eat it. I call it a fat bomb, but it really is just melty cheese!
