Valentine's Vanilla Cookie Fat Bombs

these fat bombs are THE literal BOMB. You will be happy to know that eating them...will not make you fat.

If you have not caught on yet, good fats are necessary as well as critical for brain, hormone, and holistic health. Not only for losing weight but pressing the "satiety brake" naturally when you eat.  

Have you ever felt totally out of control when you start to eat. It's like anything edible is going down the hatch, and anything "un-edible" is up for debate."Satiety" is natures way of telling your body, "It's okay to stop eating now." You feel satisfied and can stop eating.

Good fat, when eaten in proportion to protein and carbs does this excellently! It took me a long time with being okay with eating fat...now I eat it liberally and can stop eating when I feel satisfied.

Enter "Fat Bombs" (or reindeer turds as I like to call them). These little guys are packed with monounsaturated fats (almonds) and MCT's (coconut oil). Both of which help with weight control, provide a quick source of energy, and help suppress appetite.
