Figuring out the Best Healthy Keto Snack for Hiking can be so confusing. It’s easy to over-eat protein and hard to get in enough healthy fats to maintain ketosis, but don’t worry! I’ve found the PERFECTLY balanced snack to keep you in Ketosis while hiking (and it comes in the perfect, portable package!).
When I met my husband back in 2000, when given the preference, I’d always choose shopping over getting dirty. However, for one of our first dates, he took me foraging for wild edible Morel mushrooms and I fell in love with both him and nature.
Over the past nearly 20 years, I’ve become less interested in shopping and your stereotypical girlie things that had previously defined me—instead transitioning to an outdoorsy person who loves gardening, camping, hunting, hiking and foraging!
Oh, yeah, in case you didn’t notice, I’m also a foodie who’s passionate about healthy eating!
And I’m also one of those always prepared types, too. So, anytime we head out on a hike, not only does my backpack contain basic ‘just in case’ supplies, I also bring along my favorite keto friendly snack…….Lindsay® Snack and Go! olives.
Plant sources, like olives, are a great store of these healthy fats. Olives are high in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat. If skimming Pinterest for keto recipes riddled with the trendy phrase “fat bombs” still makes you cringe, hear us out. Studies have shown that polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fats have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart attack. These types of fats are also very satiating, meaning you stay full longer, helping you cut down on potential overeating.
So, now that you know that olives are the best keto snack (not only for hiking but EVERYWHERE), the big challenge is HOW to take them along?!? Glass jars of olives are cumbersome and dangerous. Plastic baggies leak…..
Why I love Lindsay Snack and Go! olives
Lindsay® Snack and Go! olives are conveniently packaged, finger friendly snack packs of olives that are perfect for stashing away in your backpack for a snack on the trail……
OR to CELEBRATE when you find the first Morel Mushroom of the foraging season! (PS we are known for always finding the first morel mushroom of the season, this year was no exception!)
And Lindsay® Snack and Go! olives are perfectly portioned in healthy serving sizes with (this is the best part) NO liquid & no mess!! And, duh, olives taste amazing, too!
