It's hard enough to find healthy on-the-go snacks but even more difficult if you're on the keto diet where high-quality fats are a must. The keto diet is known to increase mental clarity and energy and lead to weight loss. It's high in good-quality fats (like avocado and extra-virgin olive oil!), moderate in protein, and low in carbs. This keto-friendly, vegan, avocado chip recipe from The Essential Vegan Keto Cookbook features avocados, which are a great high-quality fat because not only will they help keep you in ketosis, but their high-antioxidant levels can repair damaged cells and increase collagen for glowing, youthful skin.

These chips can be done in under 20 minutes and packed up for travel. Next time you're out and about, there's no need to stress about finding your next high-quality bite—just reach in your bag.
