Hard-boiled eggs are an easy and portable snack that are perfect for the keto diet.

You can make your own, or buy them already boiled from the grocery store (and even some gas stations!).
Cheese sticks are a classic snack that are both tasty and keto-friendly. Choose high-quality cheese with minimal additives and enjoy as a quick and easy snack on the go.
Nuts are a great source of healthy fats and protein, and can make for an excellent keto snack. Choose nuts that are low in carbs, such as almonds—but stay mindful of how much you’re eating, because the carbs can add up quickly!

Beef jerky is a convenient and portable snack that’s perfect for the keto diet. Just make sure to choose a brand that doesn’t have any added sugar.

Not only is it delicious, but it’s also packed with healthy fats and fiber.
