Snacks, snacks and more snacks. I recently posted about cleaning out our pantry and how transitioning my kids to Keto has been a challenge. We got there, most of the time, but getting them to try and love Keto food was difficult, especially the snack arena — mainly because there wasn’t any. This time last year (and even 6 months ago at that), there weren’t very many pre-packaged Keto friendly snacks on the store shelves, which made a lot of sense because strict Keto revolves around eating clean, wholesome food low in carbohydrates and sugars with minimal to no preservatives. And let’s face it, most OG food manufacturers weren’t going to reformulate or rethink their foods or processes just because the popularity of the Keto diet had grown.
This made packing lunches for my kids — who did not want to eat a salad or cut up celery with deli meat every day — a huge Challenge. My kids longed to have “normal” food which meant mainly convenience food: chips, cookies...aka snacks, and I longed for “normal food” to be healthy and wholesome.
Fast forward to now where I think Keto has reach critical mass. Companies are realizing that this isn’t a “fad” diet and people (and families like ours) are now committing to “living Keto” for good. Im excited to see more and more innovative and health-conscious companies pop-up with food and snack options that are keto, paleo, whole30 friendly—YEAH!! But don’t be fooled, some “healthy” foods still have high net carbs, so read the labels. Here’s a list of some foods we’ve come to LOVE and have graced our Keto pantry.
