Back in March I hopped on board the keto diet train. I have tried every diet under the sun and while I have seen results with many, I am not able to sustain them. With keto I have never felt better. As someone with certain food sensitivities, I have found that keto is the best way for my body to eat. I am less inflamed, skin has cleared, I have more energy, and to top it all off, I have lost twenty pounds and four dress sizes!

Maneuvering keto at first was difficult. I had to find the right foods to eat that fit my daily carb and fat intake. I relied a lot on the internet the first couple weeks, as well as asking a couple friends who were successful on keto, for suggestions.

Over the last few months I have found that Trader Joe's is the holy grail for keto snacks. I am able to go there and pick up enough snacks to make sure I am happy, well fed, and still in ketosis. Here are some of my favorites:

Chomps Beef Sticks: These beef jerky sticks are filling, easy on the go, and come in six different flavors. My favorite is jalapeƱo.

Seaweed: This snack is another good one on the go and keeps your sodium and electrolyte levels up, which is really important with keto. It also adds a nice crunch to your lunch when you want to grab chips.

Mozzarella Rolloni: Cheese wrapped in salami. Do I need to say anymore?

Oven-Baked Cheese Bites: Another good chip alternative, these cheese bites are high in protein and have almost no carbs.

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes: Although it takes some prep time, it's a favorite snack or side for me. I make the cauliflower mashed potatoes, which honestly don't taste that different from regular mashed potatoes, and top with butter and parmesan cheese.

I hope you enjoy these favorites of mine and if you have any favorite keto snacks, leave them below!
