A common misconception for those looking into or starting keto is that you won’t be able to snack. While it IS important to choose the right ones so they don’t knock you out of ketosis, you can in fact snack. There are also many great snacks that will cut your cravings and keep you satiated until dinner.
Snacking with keto isn’t what you were used to snacking on before keto. You’ll need to rethink what snacks are to you. Gone are the days of packages of cookies and bags of chips. Stick to low carb, high-fat options. There are many great ready to go snacks and some awesome recipes to keep you in ketosis, cut the cravings, and keep you from feeling deprived.
I’ve said many times in my posts what we look for when vacationing and looking for a rental. One of the main things we look for is a kitchen. Having a kitchen saves greatly on our expenses which is from cooking our own meals.
However, on vacation, we don’t really want to cook so I stick to super simple meals, mainly crock pot. I’ve got my list of go-to crock pot meals that are keto friendly for my family.

Lemon-Pepper Baked Chicken Wings
These spicy baked chicken wings are perfect for game day or anytime you need to whip up a casual, yet delicious, appetizer.
Making your own homemade flavored seasonings is easy. However, finding the perfect balance of flavors is more of an art than a science, because individual tastes vary so widely.
The proportions shared here offer a safe starting point. The whole black peppercorns impart a BOLD flavor to this seasoning, so it’s best to start with a small amount and adjust upwards until you find the level of heat you prefer. Once you do, you can create larger batches of this seasoning and store the remaining amounts in an airtight container for several months.
Cauliflower & Cheese Soup
One of the great things about cauliflower is how well it takes on the flavors of other ingredients. In this case, the more pungent goat cheese adds an interesting and delicious dimension to the finished result. If you want more robust flavors, roast the cauliflower and onion before blending. The flavor will be more complex, but be aware the soup will take on a darker brown color as a result.
This quick and versatile soup makes a nice, light appetizer or a filling lunch when paired with a crisp, green salad.
