Low Carb Travel Essentials – ideas for snacks, foods, meals and keeping healthy while traveling.
Low Carb Travel Essentials
Any day now I’ll be jetting off from my home in Melbourne to explore Japan for a couple of weeks. I’ll be sticking to the low carb way of eating which I absolutely love and sharing the adventures with you here on my blog, YouTube Channel and going CRAZY on Instagram!
Traveling while following a low carb diet like the Keto diet is possible, it just takes a little bit of preparation beforehand to make sure you have easy, go to options for while you’re on the road.
To prevent spillage and to make it easy to find your travel snacks and food, consider taking an insultated lunch bag and/or a packing cube. Here are some ideas:
Low Carb Keto Diet Plane and Travel Snacks
Here are some ideas for plane travel snacks that are low carb, ketogenic diet friendly:
- Nuts – Macadamias, Salted Mixed Nuts, Pine Nuts, Almonds and/or your favourite nuts
- Chia Seeds
- Nut Butter (remember to place it into your liquids bag for carry on)
- Vegetable Sticks – peppers, cucumber or a salad of your favourite low carb vegetables
- Fruit – if you usually have low carb fruit such as berries in your diet
- Pouches of coconut oil (remember to pack in your liquids)
- Small bottle of avocado oil or olive oil (use a travel size container under 100ml and pack in your liquids)
- Chocolate – 85%+ dark chocolate or your low carb chocolate of choice
- Hot Chocolate/Coffee/Tea
- Boiled eggs – think of your travel neighbour and consume ASAP if not refrigerated
- Tuna – again, think of your travel neighbour!
Important reminder – check whether there are any food restrictions for where you’re travelling to as you may not be able to travel with fresh vegetables or other forbidden foods.

Remember to keep up with your supplements and electrolytes while traveling. I take my regulars, plus extras such as activated charcoal and digestive enzymes to help my body cope with the changing nature of the food and water I’ll be consuming.
It’s best to have a chat with your chosen health professional to decide for a supplement regime for while you’re traveling to keep healthy.
