If you’re a runner, (either a whip-fast pro or total beginner), and you’re also on keto, you may be feeling slightly concerned or confused about how to nourish yourself without carbs. It’s no secret that carbs are the athlete’s fuel source before a big run, but you can absolutely get by without them. Fill yourself with healthy fats, proteins and sources of fiber. These recipes are really easy to make and can be grabbed for a snack when you’re in a rush or need an extra energy hit ASAP.

Almond Butter Yogurt Bowls

These bowls are fantastic for breakfast or as a pre-run snack. The fat and protein from the yogurt will keep you full without adding too much heavy bulk. The almond butter and seeds provide energy and more fats. And the berries add a touch of natural sugar and low-level carbs for energy…without going over keto guidelines! Great for when you cannot be bothered heating or cooking anything…and only one dish to wash!

Collagen and Chocolate Protein Bars

Collagen is a fantastic supplement for keto dieters and runners alike. Collagen is a protein which supports the muscles and joints, helping them to stay strong and sustain workouts and running sessions. It’s also great for mental clarity, which is needed for gruelling runs when you need to keep your mental game strong and focused! Choose a collagen powder with added MCT, one of the best fatty acids for keto dieters as they are quickly broken down and used by the body as carb-free energy. These bars feel like a treat…when really they’re practical, nutritious and keto-friendly.

Tuna and Avocado Sushi

A light meal before a run or as a post-run snack is important, especially if it’s one you can simply pick up and eat with your hands, straight off the plate. Sushi is perfect for this purpose, and these keto-friendly sushi rolls are filled with fatty avocado and tuna to fill you up and power you through. We add egg for extra protein, and sesame seeds for fat, protein and magnesium for muscle recovery.

Bacon, Egg, Mushroom and Cheese Muffins

Eggs, bacon, mushrooms, cheese and parsley all come together to create these tasty muffins filled with protein and fat. They’re more like little crustless quiches, but we call them muffins cause they’re made in muffin pans.

Run-Fit Smoothie

A cold, velvety smoothie really hits the spot after a run when you’re not ready for a full meal but need something to refill the tank. This smoothie has plenty of fat, fiber and protein. Just blend it up and that’s that.
