Traveling While Doing Keto


| 6/11/2019 10:19:00 AM


After a lot of contemplation and preparation, I finally committed to trying a keto diet for six weeks. I was hoping to avoid traveling during this time so it would be easier, but it did not work out that way. Since it had taken so long to commit to the six weeks, I was determined to stick with it the best that I could while I was traveling.

I knew there were not any great keto options on the route that I was traveling. It is really important to me that I am sticking with real foods for the most part and making sure to eat my vegetables. My best option for the road was to pack my own stuff. 

One thing that I was concerned about was getting my fat in on the road. I was excited to find Trader Joe’s packets of coconut oil. I ended up adding that to the tea that I had in my hotel room on the trip. I also bought kale chips so that I would have a way to get some vegetables on the road. I bought some organic canned chicken, but in the end, I did not eat it. I still think it is a good travel food though.

Normally when I travel I eat a lot of carbs and load up on soda for my caffeine. I had to make a different plan this time. I was happy to be able to drink Zevia energy drinks in place of the soda. They are sweetened with stevia and no carbs. I also packed some kombucha for the trip. I have to take that from my carb allowance for the day, but it is so worth it for me. I brought  some single serving electrolyte and Natural Calm magnesium packets to add to my water. 



For my travel time to my destination, I ate only what I had packed. For breakfast, I had a low carb keto bar. For lunch, I had a no-carb Chomps beef stick along with the kale chips. I also packed some mixed nuts. I ate some Parmesan cheese crisps. I certainly was hungry by the time I made it to my destination and was ready for a great dinner. I was able to enjoy a nice steak dinner with asparagus and wild mushrooms. The mushrooms were the best that I have had. I felt good with my dinner choices.
