Have you heard of fat bombs? I know many folks hear those words and feel the inclination to shy away. I mean aren’t we lead to believe that fat is bad? I will answer that with a resounding, no! Quality healthy fats are our friend, and our bodies feel best when we fuel ourselves with clean sources of energy in whole form.
Fat bombs are low carb, keto and vegan friendly no-bake treats! They’re typically made with ingredients such as nut butters, coconut oil, cocoa powder and only a little sweetener in pure form. We at BWC for Horse Lovers prefer natural sweeteners such as honey, and do our best to avoid refined sugar, so we’ve included a recipe below for you to try at home. Many of you have been making healthier choices this year, and we want to ensure we always continue to support you in your goals for long lasting change.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we all know what that means. We are about to be bombarded with mass advertisement and potentially unwanted sweets finding their way into our homes. Let’s work with that! By preparing these pleasing treats in advance of cravings sneaking up on you, you can have your own simple pleasures and easily say ‘no thank you’ to consuming something that will leave you feeling unbalanced, and not satisfied.
This is the beauty of fat bombs; they satiate you by stabilizing blood sugar and satisfying your taste buds with healthy alternatives that help steer you away from the processed, unhealthy fare. They are extremely rich, and without too much sweetness, so you don’t need much. As with anything, moderation is key for these, but they’re so filling that it’s much easier to feel satisfied even after just a small amount.
Are you wanting to gift a loved one around Valentine’s Day this year? This might be a fun idea for something a little different. Whip up a batch (it only takes 10 minutes to prepare, with 30 minutes to set in the freezer), freeze them and pack them into a container paired with an ice pack. Place them at someone’s door as a nice surprise, then leave a note: “To ____, because I care about you and your health. Love, _____”.
Makes 12 small sized fat bombs or 6-8 large
