Thank you to our fabulous sponsors Moon Cheese, Pili Hunters, Nui, Atkins, and Keto Sports for making this post possible and helping us eat keto while traveling with their fabulous keto travel snacks!
We’re finally back state-side after spending seven weeks in Europe! Paris was our home base for over a month, and we also did a long weekend in Prague, and a road trip throughout France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Italy.
We ate low carb most of the time, had a few days when we were strict keto, and also indulged a couple days (because how could we not eat croissants in Paris or pasta in Italy, right?!).
Most importantly, we had several keto snacks for travel days (and a few other products that we were able to use for keto hacks!) that helped us stay low carb and eat keto-friendly most of the time. When you’re traveling, no matter if it’s a summer-long stay or a weekend getaway, you need these products in your life!
Pro Tip: These snacks are also fantastic movie theater treats!
Keto Travel Snacks
After going keto, so many people tell us they miss salty, crunchy food. But with Moon Cheese 100% cheese there’s no reason to feel deprived! We tried the Cheddar, Pepper Jack, and Gouda flavors. All three flavors are crunchy and satisfying, and perfect for munching in the car or on the go. When you’re craving cheese but don’t have a access to a fridge, this is one of the best keto snacks for travel.
Pro Tip: Because Moon Cheese also has protein, we brought it with us on long walks around Paris to refuel!
Moon Cheese Nutrition Info Per Serving (6-7 pieces/12 g of Pepper Jack)
- 5g fat

Pili Hunters Activated Pili Nuts
Did you know that the Pili nut has the highest oil content and lowest carbs of any nut?! Look out, macadamias, lol! And Pili Hunters Sprouted Pili Nuts are an excellent source of magnesium, vitamin B1, and manganese. But best of all, they taste amazing. We eat them by the handful, sprinkle them on salads, and add them to cheeseboards for some crunch.
We tried the Coconut Oil and Himalayan Salt, Raw Cacao, and Rosemary and Olive Oil Pili Nuts. The classic is our favorite, but the rosemary was a close second. They also have nut butters that are available in jars and single servings. These make for great low carb travel snacks!
Pro Tip: Rosemary and Olive Oil Pili Nuts are a delicious addition to a cheese board!
Pili Hunters Activated Pili Nuts Nutrition Info Per Serving (.53 oz/15 g of Coconut Oil and Himalayan Salt Pili Nuts)

We’re always up for a chocolate chip cookie. When we don’t have time to make our own or when we’re on-the-go, Nui comes to the rescue! We tried their Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Double Chocolate cookies and loved them all, especially paired with coffee.
We really like that the first ingredient for these cookies is almond flour, and also, they’re gluten free, have no artificial sweeteners, are low glycemic, have no added sugar, have no GMOs, and are ketogenic! These definitely need to be added to your healthy low carb travel snacks list!
Pro Tip: Sandwich 2 Nui Keto Cookies together with a scoop of your favorite low carb ice cream! Cut it in half for a serving size and enjoy a decadent dessert.

We all know that a candy bar is loaded with added sugar, right? But did you know about the “hidden sugar effect” – when carbohydrates convert to sugar when digested?
You don’t see the sugar, but your body does. Even though you don’t always see sugar that’s in food, it can still impact your blood sugar levels. For example, a bagel has the same “hidden sugar effect” on your blood sugar levels as 8 teaspoons of sugar!
But the great news is that there’s no need to feel deprived.
And these bars have delicious chocolate flavor; they’re not chalky like other bars!
Pro Tip: Grab an Atkins bar next time you’re craving a candy bar to satisfy your sweet tooth. These bars are a great way to fuel up without a sugar crash, no matter where life takes you – for example, when you’re sprinting up the steps of Sacre-Coeur in Paris!
Nutrition Information for Atkins Chocolate Chip Granola Meal Bars Per Serving (1 bar/48g)
- 9g fat
- 18g total carbohydrates
- 7g fiber
- 8g glycerin
- 1g sugar
- 3g net carbs (net carbs = total carbs – fiber – erythritol)
- 17g protein
Let’s be honest. When you travel, staying regular can be an issue, especially when you’re traveling to the land of cheese. Keto Sports Probiotics was a must for us! Take 3 capsules twice a day as recommended on the bottle and you’re good to go (pun intended).
And can we just talk about coffee for a quick minute?! We missed our American coffee because we got stares like we had three heads when we asked for coffee with cream in most countries. This is not a thing in Paris, lol. Skim milk or espresso with sugar is the norm, so we went black most of the time and added Keto Sports MCT Powder. Best coffee hack we discovered! Pair your keto coffee with one of the above keto travel snacks!
Pro Tip: Many places in Europe where you order coffee with cream (for example, France and Czech Republic), most of the time they think you’re asking for sweetened whipped cream! They just don’t keep regular whipped cream on hand for adding to coffee. However, Switzerland has what they call “cream coffee”, which is basically an Americano with individual packets of cream on the side. Also, in Italy you can order cafe con panna, which is coffee with cream.
Nutrition Information for Keto Sports MCT Powder Per Serving (1 scoop/9g)
- 6g fat
- 1g carbohydrates
- 0g fiber
- 1g sugar
- 0g protein
