There are many situations that can be challenging when you are on the keto diet. One of them is hiking or backpacking. Let’s go through some great keto backpacking food options.
You can take loads of pre-cooked bacon on a trip. This is a great option. It is loaded with fat and does not need to be refrigerated. For argument’s sake, we are assuming that you are unable to get to a refrigerator on a daily basis and need stuff that can keep for at least a couple days while you are out in the wild. This pre-cooked bacon can easily be grabbed at Target.
