The gas station convenience store solution
In the previous post I discussed favoring a grocery store if you need to find something keto when you are on the go. It is a great way to avoid the temptation of the fast food drive thru. I have found that if you do not have a grocery close by and the need to feed is great, the gas station convenience store or truck stop should have some pretty good options. Now, these are not perfect keto world choices, you may find high fat low carb but it usually is not high quality and probably is loaded with nitrates and preservatives. With that being said you can still stay in ketosis with some of their items and in my mind that is a win! I just try not to lean on convenience store items too often so I am not consuming allot of chemicals that come with processed foods.
Here are items I tend to look for
- String cheese
- Cheesewich – love these but they are probably not that healthy for you.
- Veggies – I add these to whatever high fat/protein food I find – the dips that come with veggies generally have MSG so I avoid them.
- P3 protein packs
