Let's talk about FAT!!
You will see this theme a lot in my blog and if you work with me as a nutrition client. Healthy fat is so good for you. It helps balance your hormones, helps you burn fat, keeps you full and cuts your cravings.
Fat bombs have become a staple snack in our house. We eat a higher fat and lower carb diet because of the satiating effect of fat, but mostly due to the fact that fat just plain tastes REALLY GOOD. Plus, saturated fat is now being widely accepted as being part of a healthy diet. So, say a big “helllllooo” and “I love you” to these yummy guys!
I made these specifically for my girls weekend/business trip. I wanted to make sure I had something to travel with that would insure I was able to get a good amount of healthy fat during our long days in the conference. Nothing worse then being HANGRY!
So what is a FAT BOMB?
Fat bombs are high-fat bites of goodness that are perfect for your low-carb/high fat diet. Whether you just need a small snack to keep you satiated between meals or if you have a craving for sweets, fat bombs are gonna be your new best friend! We always have some on hand to enjoy as a post-dinner treat!
There are a million Pinterest recipes for fat bombs if chocolate isn't your jam. I think you're crazy if you aren't into chocolate, almond butter and coconut oil but check out my Pinterest for more fat bomb ideas.
Here is the simple recipe:
Super simple you melt the coconut oil and almond butter over medium heat. Once they are combined mix in the other ingredients. From there you pour the mix into your silicone molds (I have mini fruit molds and large square molds, so I divided them between both styles of molds.)
You then let them solidify in the freezer for 2 hours. You will want to store them in the fridge. They melt pretty easily since there is so much coconut oil in them!
I am a Doula, Childbirth Educator and certifying Nutritionist. Essentially I am a women's health nerd. I have struggled with Autoimmune issues for the last 10 years, and more recently fertility issues. This along with my birth work, has driven me to self research. I have added a blog to my site in hopes of giving resources to clients or those interested in these topics. I would love feedback and comments.
