Why Fat bombs? Fat bombs are great when you want to kick the junk food and sugar cravings and stay full longer. Plus they are quick and easy to make. Blackberries can be your best friend on a keto diet. They are one of the lowest carb fruits so you can still enjoy them without feeling guilty. Protein often turns to sugar on a low carb diet and can stall weight loss due to the gluconeogenesis process. Eating enough fat will keep you full, and allow your body to burn off the excess fat it already has.

Sautéed Citrusy Broccoli

Side Dish

Broccoli does NOT requiring boiling before sautéing or stir-frying IF you implement the steaming method. Trapping hot air in the pan is what helps soften the broccoli so it doesn’t just appear cooked on the outside. That’s not to say broccoli won’t cook if not covered, but it may run the risk of burning before becoming sufficiently tender. It’s also important to note that boiling can cause some nutrients to leach out, like vitamin C. (Vitamin C is water-soluble and quite sensitive to heat.) Therefore, sautéing can help vegetables retain some of their more delicate nutrients.
