My friends, it’s time to get on board the fat bomb train. Which is easy to do, because clean recipes for fat bombs are here.
Think of them like energy balls, but instead of being made with things like oats or dried fruit, they’re made almost exclusively from high-fat, low-carb ingredients. Think coconut, unsweetened dark chocolate, nuts, seeds, and nut butters, and avocado.
We need fats to absorb fat soluble vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K, and research suggests that monounsaturated fats (the kind found in avocados, nuts and olives) can lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and increase ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.
Fats take longer to break down in the digestive tract and slow the breakdown of carbohydrates into sugar, keeping our blood sugar levels stable and helping us to feel fuller for longer. According to scientific research, a spoonful of coconut oil a day could even whittle our waistlines away!
You’ll still need to watch your portion sizes but, since fats are satisfying, eating a fat bomb for a snack could actually help you stop snacking on sugary zero nutrient snacks.
