Protein Keto Coffee for the Backpacking and Meal Prep

Since my Delta Dall Sheep Hunt, I have been playing around with my morning cup of fatty coffee, Bulletproof Coffee, if you will. The original Instant Backcountry Bulletproof Coffee did the trick. I wasn’t crazy about the way the MCT powder tasted, but it was fine. But these Protein Keto Coffee for the Backpacking and Meal Prep are much better tasting and just as practical!

Protein Keto Coffee “Meal Prepping” and Travel

These coffees aren’t just for keto backpacking. Whenever I travel, I leave out the instant coffee (sometimes I bring little instant coffee packets, just in case) and bring along the powdered mix in little baggies. They take up almost no room and you can find a cup of coffee almost anywhere. I find if I start my day off well, even while traveling, the rest of my day tends to do better.

On the Go Protein Keto Coffee also works for “meal prepping”.  They can be made super quickly and last forever. I like to keep the powder mixes (minus the instant coffee). For more super-fast low-carb meal prepping recipes check out my E-Book, 10 Minute Meal Prep.

When traveling or at home I usually split the mixture into 2 servings or decrease the Keto Creamer. 500 kcals is a lot for one cup of coffee. Usually half is all I need for the day.

High-Fat backpacking foods have changed the way I hunt forever. Here is why I went keto for sheep hunting. And if you are interested in all the food I packed, check out the food round-up I did.

Customizing Your Keto Coffee

In these recipes, I list the specific brands I use. Feel free to try other brands, just check the label and the nutrition facts to make sure you are getting the right number of calories. The “scoop” or serving size will vary.

Below are 5 different recipes, all with about 350-500 kcals, 20-35 grams of protein, a pinch of salt, and plenty of healthy fats. Feel free to only use these “recipes” as a guideline and make your coffee the way you like. I highly recommend using a high-quality sea or Himalayan salt in your coffee. Not only does salt enhance flavor, it provides essential electrolytes that are even more critical when you are in ketosis and/or highly active.

Featured Products

Karma Kafe Keto Creamer

This powdered creamer contains some carbs, but I like the taste and “clean” ingredients.

Wilderness Athlete Paleo(ish) Beef Protein

I am on the Wilderness Athlete Feild Team but I also love this protein. I put their Paleo(ish) Protein Powder (both the vanilla and cocoa flavors) in my coffee all the time and use several of their other products as well.  I think this protein in particular because it tastes really good and is low-carb. Here is another recipe I use the protein in Paleoish Salted Peanut Butter Chocolate Mini Protein Muffins.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

I am obsessed with bone broth, and partly because it contains collagen.  When bone broth isn’t convenient, you can get many of the same benefits from collagen peptides. It also is flavorless and blends nicely into any liquid. I can find Vital Proteins at my local Costco, which is nice.

Wilderness Athlete Wild C8 MCT

This MCT powder is pretty special. It contains L- carnitine and Q10 to help support fat metabolism.  It is not available on Amazon at the time I am writing it, but you can purchase it on the Wilderness Athlete Site.

Give them a try, see what you think

Give these “recipes” a try and see you much time it saves you and how you feel. It will be hard to find a breakfast that is easier to make, takes up as little room, weighs less, or keeps as well. To see more of my adventures and Paleo-ish/ Mostly Low-carb food, what I am currently cooking, and how I prepare for hunting season, follow me on Instagram or Facebook!
