25 Low Carb Travel Snacks For Your Next Trip
Here is a categorized list of low carb travel snacks for your next trip. To me, good low carb travel snacks are a combination of low carb, low fat and low carb, high fat. However, I think 15 grams of carbohydrates or less is ideal for each airport travel snack.
When my daily activity is low, I endeavor to keep my low carb snacks under 9 grams of carbs. Since air travel typically requires quite a bit of walking, lifting, and pulling I bring snacks with a few more carbs than usual. I do so because I prefer to have a snack with more carbs and not need it, than to have a low blood sugar at the airport. Without much fat reserve, a low blood sugar is possible. It can make you feel dizzy and faint. Clearly this is not an issue you want to experience in a fast-paced airport.
Once settled, your activity drops to almost zero as you sit or sleep on the plane. During this time, you can enjoy your low carb, low fat snacks as needed. Everyone will have slightly different circumstances. So, if you are new to being on a low carb diet, you will have to think ahead a little to decide when and what to eat at the airport.
1. Meat Bars
There are all kinds of low carb chicken, beef, bison, and turkey meat bars on the market. They do not all have the same quality. So, here is a nice combination of all natural meat bars for you to enjoy.
Nuts make easy low carb travel snacks because most are nutritionally balanced with fats, carbs, and proteins. In this way, eating nuts can keep you energized and satisfied.
Cheese also make excellent low carb travel snacks. They are low carb, high protein, and high fat. Because of this, cheese can make a nice alternative for nuts when following a keto diet.
4. Crackers & Chips
Low carb chips and crackers are fun snacks to eat during your flight to relieve the pressure in your ears. Most pork rinds have zero carbs, so it is a good low carb snack to eat when you are not active (sitting on a plane).

6. Bars, Granola Mixes, and More
When traveling for an extended period of time with the same low carb travel snacks can get pretty boring. Therefore, I endeavor to mix things up a bit. I do so by keeping a variety of low carb travel snacks in my bag.
