Love Good Fats- My new favorite travel snack!

I've found my new favorite travel snack, LOVE GOOD FATS!

A couple of weeks ago, I sent out some tips for how to survive air travel on Keto. Of course, I talked about drinking lots of water, and bringing some healthy Keto Snacks. But this was all before I tried LOVE GOOD FATS Bars! 

This past weekend I flew to Reno, and took these little guys with me on the air plane! One bar kept me nice and full until I could get settled in Reno and find some dinner.  Plus it was really delicious! 

I love that Love Good Fat bars are truly a snack. They don't have too much protein, so they don't cut into my macros!

I also really love that this brand was started by an amazing woman! Suzie is an Ironman competitor and Marketing Exec who couldn't find a snack bar with the High Fat and Low Sugar she was looking for, so she made her own!

Fat Snax - Fat Tea in Three Flavors

Want to switch up your morning routine?

Try switching out your go-to coffee for a Fat Snax Tea.

Every so often, I like to change up my morning routine. It helps change my perspective and helps me tackle my week with a new mindset. One thing you can do to change up your morning routine is switch out your caffiene source. The caffiene in Teas and Coffee work differently from one another. You might find that you prefer the type of caffiene in Matcha or Yerba to your usual black coffee.

Recently I discovered the brand Fat Snax. They have soft and delicious Fatty Cookies. And they also sell Fat Tea.

Fat Snax Tea comes in individual serving packets. Each packet contains Tea, MCT Oil, and just 1 net carb.

They us C8 MCT Oil derived from Coconuts. C8 is a type of MCT that gives amazing energy without causing gut irritation.

Fat Snax Tea is sweetened with Stevia. All you have to do is mix the packet with water (hot or Cold) and enjoy!

Fat Snax Tea now comes in three flavors: Matcha, Pu-Ehr, and Yerba.

Matcha is concentrated green tea powder. It has a strong, but clean caffeine and contains tons of antioxidants.

Pu-Ehr is a fermented Chinese Tea. It is loaded with flavor and antioxidants.

Yerba is a tea from South America. It has a crisp taste will wake you up on even the sleepiest of mornings.

I love coffee as much as the next person, maybe more. But If you are looking to change up your caffeine intake, I encourage you to try out Fat Snax Tea.

Keto Recipe: Fat Snax Lemony Lemon Cookie Bowl

Love chewy soft keto cookies?

ME TOO! Have you tried Fat Snax? Fat Snax is a company that makes Cookies and Teas that are high in Fat and Low in Carbs. The company is dedicated to making high quality, keto friendly snacks!!

The cookies are great by themselves, but this week I was in the mood for something a little more substantial. I made a Lemony Lemon Cookie Bowl. Fat Snax cookies make a perfect crumble topping for this yogurt and fruit bowl.  

Lemony Lemon Cookie Bowl 

• 1 container of plain keto friendly yogurt (I used Peak Yogurt)

• Handful of berries, I used Jumbo blueberries (look how huge they are!) and 4 organic strawberries

• 1 (or 2 if you're feeling extra sweet) Lemony lemon Fat Snax Cookie

This bowl would work for me any time of the day! The lemon cookies add so much brightness along with the berries, it was the perfect combination. 

Fat Snax Cookies come in three flavors Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Lemony Lemon. You can buy the flavors seperately or in a variety pack.

Lemony Lemon is my favorite. It is sweet but still light and fresh. It fits perfectly in this bowl with fresh berries and keto yogurt.

The cookies only have 1-2 net carbs, 8g of fat, and 0 sugar. They are made with almond flour, butter, and coconut flour for low carb perfection.

Fat Bombs- Do you need to eat them?

Let’s talk about Fat Bombs! Do you need them? When should you eat them?

Fat Bombs are yummy keto treat. I have several fat bomb recipes, including these Spicy Chocolate Fat Bombs, in my two cookbooks, The Big Book of KETO and The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook. But Fat Bombs are NOT A NECESSARY PART OF KETO.

There is no reason to load up on fat bombs at the end of the day just to hit your fat macro. If you are full and in ketosis, you don’t need fat bombs.

That being said, it can be very convenient to have keto friendly sweet treats prepped in your freezer whenever you want to pop one! 

Fat Bombs are a great and filling snack. They offer long lasting energy and are perfect for mid-morning/late-night snack. You may find them useful before or after your workouts to give you energy and prevent the post workout nap. If caffeine in the afternoon keeps you up all night, consider eating a fat bomb at 3 o’clock to get you through your work day.


Fat Bombs are a useful tool if you are having a hard time staying in Ketosis. If you accidentally ate too many carbs and are no longer in Ketosis, you can eat a Fat Bomb to get yourself back on track. But I would only recommend doing this if you are in Keto Emergency Mode. Reset your body for the day and then try again tomorrow.

Remember Keto is a lifestyle. It takes a lot of commitment, but it is so worth it. Your goal should be to stay within your carb limit and get enough fat from your meals that fat bombs are an unnecessary treat.

Are you having a hard time getting enough fat?

Try out these Strawberry-Lime Ice Pops from The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook or Strawberry Cream Cheese Mousse as a sweet alternative to fat bombs.
