Backpacking On Keto, Is It Possible?
Published: 8 months ago
Make the most of the outdoor season before it gets too hot - while you're on keto!
We understand that camping and/or backpacking meals mostly consist of meals and snacks that are heavily processed for convenience, but let's not forget that we need to follow a clean keto diet to reach our goals quickly and effectively.
It can be difficult enough to plan a menu of camping or backpacking meals without dietary restrictions, but what more so when you're on keto, right?
That being said, here are some of our recommended foods and snacks that are great for both your keto diet and outdoor activities!
- Bread, rolls and buns - no baked goods.
- Fruits with high sugar content - apples, mango, banana, etc.
- Mayo (in packets)
- Cereal and oats
- Starchy vegetables
- Nuts or make up a Keto trail mix (pecans, almonds, cashews)
- Keto-friendly protein bars
- Cheese sticks or hard cheese
Also, remember to stay hydrated during your backpacking trip.
It's possible to stay charged up while camping, hiking, or backpacking as long as you:
- Be prepared for all circumstances and plan - Know the exact snacks and foods you can take at a time, along with calorie counts for heavy meals like lunch and dinner.
- Be mindful - Backpacking activities require a lot of high-fat, low-water foods. Make sure you are getting enough magnesium, potassium and sodium from your food pack and replenish your electrolytes as often as possible. You can get electrolytes from certain whole foods, such as spinach, beans, watery fruits, etc.
- Prep at home - Save time and try to do as much prep work as possible at home, e.g. dicing meat into cubes, chopping vegetables, storing snacks in containers, etc.
