Keto on-the-go

One of the most common reasons people struggle on their keto journey is because they feel stuck for time. So we’re laying down our top tips to make following a keto lifestyle, simple and convenient. 

Snacks

Having some tasty keto snacks on hand is essential for balancing keto with a busy lifestyle. Not only do they prevent you from running into temptation, but they keep your body energised and your mind motivated throughout the day.

Keto snacks we love include: 

  • Celery and nut butter
  • Beef Jerky
  • Olives 
  • Avocado
  • A handful of keto granola!

Master Eating Out 

A busy lifestyle often goes hand-in-hand with being out lots and grabbing food on the go. If you’re on keto, eating out can be tricky, with a lot of people struggling with hidden carbs and running into temptations. However, with some simple keto swaps in mind, eating out can be easier and enjoyable. 

Here are some good swaps to make…

Chinese Restaurants

Although often loaded with healthy green veggies, Chinese menus can be hard to navigate due to the rice, noodles, and sweet sauces that are full of carbs. However, there are also plenty of great dishes, ideal for keto, in the midst of the menu. 

Try swapping…

  • Tempura veg and meat
  • Rice
  • Noodles 

For…

  • Steamed vegetables and seafood
  • Beef and broccoli stir fry 
  • Baked fish 

Mexican Food

There are plenty of great keto options in Mexican food, however, the dishes often take a bit of tweaking to make them completely keto-friendly. 

Try swapping…

  • Rice
  • Beans
  • Wraps 

For…

  • A naked burrito or Mexican salad. This will have all the best bits of the  dish, salsa, guacamole and so on, minus the carbs.  

Indian Restaurants

Try to stay clear of sauce-heavy dishes. Often creamy and tomato-based sauces are thickened with sugar and grains. 

Try swapping…

  • Naan 
  • Rice
  • Sweet chutneys

  • For…

  • Tandoori Chicken
  • Saag Paneer
  • Raita 

  • Other useful swaps to keep in mind are: 

    Burgers

    • Ask for a bunless burger or even swap it out with a lettuce wrap
    • Swap out fries for an extra side salad 

    Salads
