Carnivore Diet Snack Ideas – On-the-go

Carnivore Crisps

If you love a good crunch, I highly recommend trying out Carnivore Crisps. They offer tons of different meat options, such as organ meats, lamb, different cuts of beef like ribeye, brisket, and top sirloin, and even wild game like elk.

If you’re on the go and don’t have time to cook or if you’re looking for a nutrient-dense shelf stable snack for backpacking trips, airplane rides, or long periods of time away from a fridge, Carnivore Crisps are a great option.

If you end up giving them a go, use my code ASHLEYR for 10% off your entire order.

The Carnivore Bar

Like Carnivore Crisps, The Carnivore Bar is another wonderful (and tasty) shelf stable option.

They offer three bars (all made with dehydrated beef for a nice crunch!):

  • beef + tallow
  • beef + tallow + sea salt
  • beef + tallow + sea salt + raw honey

My personal favorite is the raw honey variation. After trying the honey bar for the first time, I woke up craving another first thing the following morning.

The salted bar isn’t bad, but taste-wise, I would never choose it over the honey bar. If I was looking to stay low carb, however, or was trying to stay away from sugar, I’d choose the salted bar.

I was not a fan of the unsalted bar. I don’t know if there is ever a scenario where I would choose an unsalted variation of something over a salted one.

If you end up giving The Carnivore Bar a try, use my code ASHLEYR for 10% off. If you purchase a subscription and use my code, the discount ends up being 25% off!
