Fat Bombs Won’t Make You Skinny. I’m just going to leave that right there. Something fat bombs will do is:
Provide essential fats
May cause gassiness
May cause bloating
May taste really delicious
May make you question if having a piece of fruit was a better way to stave off hunger until dinner
Fat bombs, my friends, are simply super concentrated sources of fat that while delicious, aren’t a panacea.
Maybe fruit contains some natural sugar – but there is a heck of a lot of food dogma swirling around the media that is swaying people away from organic health – our birth right. Have you been subscribing to diet culture dogma? I wanted to give you a permission slip to please enjoy fruit if you’ve been avoiding it. Fruit nor fat bombs are panacea’s, but I promise you, we humans manage to eat plenty of fat but often lack vitamins and minerals found primarily in fruits and vegetables. Don’t skimp – M’kay?
Ways you get enough fat include: nuts, seeds, oils, avocados and animal protein if you don’t eat a plant based diet. That’s good (and plenty!)
I’ve been enjoying some deeply nourishing green drinks as of late along with lots of dates because of how versatile they are and how well they “hit the spot.” Eating fruit is brain food! In fact, he glucose in whole foods goes straight to the brain to nourish our thinking and give us a natural boost of energy. It’s pretty magical stuff. So yes while fruit won’t save the planet – we can enjoy a heck of a lot of our existence here when we nose dive into a beautiful bowl of freshly cut fruit. Go treat yourself. Daily.
Other ways our brain is fueled naturally – granted you don’t rely on ketosis – come from naturally derived carbohydrates found in root vegetables and whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa (which is actually a fruit).
Banana with sunbutter and chia seeds – a simple breakfast I ate one morning while I prepared a green drink.
