Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a new way of eating that incorporates a ton of healthy fats into my daily diet. While not a strict ketogenic diet, my fat-first approach to eating has made a huge difference in how I look and feel. My energy is improved, my skin is healthier and I’m even seeing positive changes to body composition; all without restricting calories. Healthy fats help you build hormones and they even help your body to better absorb and utilize critical vitamins and nutrients. Fat is also wonderfully satiating and balances your blood sugar levels to help reduce unhealthy food cravings. Studies even show that eating a low carbohydrate diet rich in healthy fats can improve insulin sensitivity by approximately 75%.
When it comes to getting enough healthy fats into your diet I recommend eating plenty of omega-3 rich foods. The omega-3 fatty acids found in high-fat health foods are anti-inflammatory and offer tons of health benefits from increased life expectancy to weight-loss. These natural and unprocessed fats are found in seeds, nuts, butter, olives, avocado, salmon, and coconut.
If you are ready to follow a fat-first diet, then these addictive fat bombs are going to become your new favourite snack. Fat bombs are a great and delicious way to get some extra healthy fats into your diet. These coconut and cashew based fatty treats are highly addictive and totally satisfying. Enjoy for breakfast with a cup of coconut oil coffee or as a mid afternoon pick-me-up.
