Today's post is all about the best keto diet snack ideas for traveling that I wish I had during my last 2 months of insane, action packed, non stop go-go-go traveling. And I'm gonna keep it (well try to) short and have individual recaps of what I've been up to later on since my absence here.
Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA! These last 2 months I've been to 3 conferences, 1 workshop, 3 states plus working my normal 9-5 job with my side hustles---more on these later.
The first conference I went to was Media Vine in Charleston and omg Charleston is such a cute little town and I can't wait to go back! I'm completely obsessed with red brick and there was no shortages of those. Also, surprisingly Charleston was a very popular bachelor and bachelorette scene so there was definitely some interesting people watching to be had. And like in a normally foodie fashion, we ate our way through the new and inviting town!
Next was my workshop, at DISNEY WORLD! Now, many of you guys know I'm not a huge Disney fanatic---That would be my mom, but if we did this type of Disney trip I'd be back in a heart beat! This workshop---Capture The Bite, was put on by Faith a lawyer turned food blogger and her site is An Ediable Mosiac and Julius from Droolius--as his name implies, his food photos will make you drool! This was an amazingly coordinated food photography and food styling workshop where we visited a bunch of parks, hotels, behind the scenes areas and learned all about techniques, lighting, styling and so much more. This was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity! Full recap to come because there's way more that happened than in this slight teaser.
After that we packed our bags and jumped on a plane bound for Salt Lake City. This trip, we attempted to turn into a vacation because literally every other weekend I was away for at least 3 or 4 days at a time. So we rented hybrid bikes and explored the city for the first 3 days. Literally, my butt was killing me because we averaged ~25 miles per day those first 3 days. We stayed at an airbnb in the suburbs, and on conference days took an uber into town because we didn't want to be hot and sweaty for the conference--no thank you! SLC was gorgeous! So green and the people were so nice and there was NO HUMIDITY. It kinda makes me wanna more there just for that. Also, on the second to last day there we decided to drive through the mountains to Park City Utah and discovered that the road was closed due to snow and ended up having to trek back down the mountain and take the highway there.
On the last day the girls wanted to drive to the Bonneville Salt Flats and we were so close to Nevada we decided to extend our journey a bit further so they could grab a pic of them straddling the border. So much happened but you'll have to wait for the full recap---plus I made videos---my first attempt at vlogging hahaha. Side note--is Vlogging pronounced like blogging with a 'V' or 'V + Logging.' I'm so lost when it comes to new technology these days.
Weird things make me smile ???? Snapping pics ???? of the Bonneville Salt Flats just outside of Salt Lake City ???? because #ketones ***************************************** #saltlakecity #saltlake #slc #utah #visitutah #visitsaltlake #ketosis #keto #ketogenic #ketogenicdiet #pruvit #pruvitnow #mountains #nature #salt #saltyaf #lovemylife #nature #naturelovers #natureonly #natureza #tagsforhearts #nature_seekers #nature_shooters #nature_perfection #natureporn #naturephotography #nature_obsession
Literally 10 days after that I'm back in Orlando for my 3rd year at the Food Wine Conference. This year was a little different because I was doing all the photography, and holy crap was my back killing me just after day 1. 3 memory cards later, I finally got everything edited. Now all I have to do is edit all the photos and videos I took during the last 2 months..........
Take me back to the gorgeous @Rosenhotels. I can't believe it's been a week since I was there for the @foodwinecon with my @sundaysupperfam family! *******************************************************#florida #visitflorida #lovefl #visitorlando #wearetravelgirls #glt #thetravelwomen #globelletravels #sidewalkerdaily #darlingescapes #girlslovetravel #girlsmeetglobe #travelgirls #sheisnotlost #girlsjustwanttotravel #girlsborntotravel #jetsettingchicks #thetravelwomen #dametraveler #alpinebabes #outdoorwomen #ladiesgoneglobal #earthgirlslifestyle @visitflorida #wanderer #travelingram #mytravelgram #travels #travelphotography #tagsta_travel #arountheworld
Now onto my side hustles. If you've been following me on Facebook and Instagram while I've been absent here, you'll have seen I started to follow a ketogenic diet and start to take exogenous ketones. OMG! Where have these been all my life!
So I've been following a ketogenic diet on and off for the last month. While on the diet I've experienced better sleep, mental clarity (I'm notorious for squirrel syndrome), and my sugar cravings are almost non-existent. But when life gets in the way and I kick myself out of ketosis I end up spending the next 2 days with low energy trying to get myself back into ketosis. So, now that I'm back from Utah I'm ready to switch my body back to fat burning mode & get back into ketosis. I bought some ketones to help me speed up this process ???????? ******************************************************** • • • • • #lchf #keto #lowcarb #ketosis #ketogenic #nsv #nonscalevictory #ketodiet #selfie #progressnotperfection #ketoaf #ketogeniclifestyle #ketocommunity #ketolife #ketofam #ketogenicdiet #lowcarbhighfat #eatfatlosefat #intermittentfasting #keepitreal #ketogirl #fatloss #highfat #nosugar #sugarfree #fatadapted #ketorocks #pruvitnow #pruvit
One thing about following a keto diet is that you need to be prepared, and pack lots of keto diet snack ideas whenever traveling so you don't kick yourself out of ketosis. Ketosis is a state in which you are primarily burning fat and ketones for fuel. I try to keep my carbohydrate intake to around 20g net carbs (total carbs-fiber-sugar alcohols=net carbs). My carbs are mostly in the form of green leafy veggies, avocado, coconut, coconut or almond flour, and cocoa powder. Some of the ketones have just a few carbs depending on what flavor I'm having.
One of my favorite keto diet snack ideas I love are cold cuts, but they're not practical to have on hand while traveling. I love jerky too, but it's really hard to find a good quality product and I was super excited when I got to try Lorissa's Kitchen Strips and Cuts!

Other keto diet snack ideas for traveling
