Your summer road trip won’t hit a stall when you bring these low carb and keto-friendly road trip snacks. They will keep your blood sugar levels and appetite in check so you’re not tempted to over-indulge along the way. Before you hit the open road, take a look at your route, and build in some time to stop and enjoy the views and stretch your legs so you are squeezing in a little exercise into your journey. And your pit stops don’t have to be pitfalls if you follow these tips along your way:

The convenience store

Convenience stores can be a little too convenient with it comes to sugar-filled fountain drinks and slushees, cookies and crackers and chips. Calm your cravings with a bag of nuts, like almonds or cashews. Jerky is always an option, although check the labels, because some brands are higher in sugar. Many convenience stores sell hard-boiled eggs, which make for an easy protein-packed snack. If you’re in the need for a sweet tasting crunchy treat, with 3g net carbs, stock your car with Atkins Peanut Butter Protein Wafer Crisps.

The hotel breakfast

The “free” continental breakfast at your hotel has its own challenges. Skip the waffles and syrup and donuts and fill up with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hard-boiled eggs and low-glycemic berries. You can also play it safe and start your day with an Atkins shake or bar.

The fast food restaurant

Sometimes the drive-thru is the only option, but if you do your research, you’ll find out there are plenty of low carb and keto-friendly fast food choices

Make the most of your road trip this summer, knowing you can stick with your low carb lifestyle the whole time. Enjoy the ride and safe travels!
