Raw Keto Fat Bombs are tasty nutritious little treats that can be eaten in a pinch to get you through to the next meal, or as I eat them, as part of my meal.

They’re great, travel well, and you can change up the ingredients to cater to your tastes and nutritional needs.

Ingredients for Raw Keto Fat Bombs

1 cup raw pecan butter or almond butter

1 cup raw coconut oil

4 tablespoons chia seeds

½ to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder

3 tablespoons wheat grass juice powder

Approximately 1/3 cup of water

Optional Ingredients

Dulse powder or other seaweed powder

1 teaspoon miso

1 inch chunk of fresh ginger root finely grated

Hemp seeds

Several teaspoons raw cacao nibs

1/3 cup chopped raw pecan nuts

¼ cup chopped goji berries or other dried berry

MCT oil or MCT oil powder

Instructions

You’ll need a 3 or 4 cup glass bowl with lid. I mix and store the fat bombs in the glass bowl so it’s really quick and easy, with minimal cleanup.

Put a jar of coconut oil in a warm place to melt and become liquid. I set the jar on a heat register on the floor and it melts nicely in just a few minutes. You could set it on a sunny window sill.

Add raw pecan butter to the bowl

Add chia seeds, wheat grass juice powder, and cayenne with about 1/3 cup water

Mix thoroughly with a spoon until well mixed

Pour in ½ cup of the liquid coconut oil and mix thoroughly until well incorporated. Add in the other ½ cup of coconut oil and mix again until you get a well incorporated mix. I don’t measure out the 1 cup serving but rather eyeball it so I don’t waste any oil in a measuring cup and don’t have another container to clean.

At this point your fat bomb mix is done. You can eat it off a spoon, serve with celery sticks, or spread it on raw flax crackers.

I store it in the fridge and after about 20 minutes the mixture sets up a little due to the coconut oil and chia seeds absorbing moisture.

I spoon out about 1/3 cup into a small mason jar with lid to take in my lunch.

If you want to make individual fat bombs you can scoop out and shape small round or oblong fat bombs onto wax paper or individual small candy paper bowls. I’m too lazy for this so prefer my method.

I add the wheat grass juice powder for the minerals and the alkalizing effect on what would otherwise be an acid forming recipe. The cayenne gives the recipe a little zip for those that enjoy that.

And there you have it, Raw Keto Fat Bombs ready for the tasting.

Keto juice is great for those following a ketogenic diet or for those simply wanting to take it to the next level. This could be a light meal replacement or a between meal snack.

According to cronometer.com this recipe has 240 calories, 11 grams of carbs, 12 grams of protein, and 16 grams of fat. Keto juice contains 100% or more of the RDA for iron, manganese, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It also contains high levels of calcium, potassium, magnesium, and copper.

The juice has a well-balanced amino acid profile and provides 30% of the RDA for omega 3 fatty acid.

Keto Juice Ingredients

½ lb of spinach

5 large stalks of celery

¼ bunch of cilantro

½ lemon with rind

1 Tbsp MCT oil (medium chain triglyceride)

Juice all ingredients and then pour the MCT oil on top of the juice. Stir briefly and enjoy. The oil will separate if the juice is not consumed directly. You can see the small globs of oil on top of the juice in the top view picture.

Because it’s a juice the nutrients will be easily assimilated by the body, which is good for gleaning nutrients, but can move you out of ketosis if you are borderline ketosis now. It depends on your current state of health, how keto adapted you are, and what else you’ve eaten in previous meals that day.

You could be eating the very same ingredients in a salad, but since the breakdown of nutrients is not as efficient as juicing you’re not getting the same nutrition in either macro or micro nutrients. This means that the juice could take you out of ketosis when the same ingredients in a salad might not.

Notes:

MCT oil is coconut oil that is refined so there are no impurities and it digests quite quickly.

The picture at the top of the page shows a chunk of fresh ginger root, however after tasting the juice I decided it would be better without it.

Keto smoothie is a recipe that suits those following a ketogenic diet, or those that are simply trying to keep their glucose and insulin levels low. If you’re used to having sweet fruit smoothies this recipe may take a little warming up to, but I know many people today are very aware of the pitfalls of consuming sweets so they’re making an effort to cut back or cut out altogether.

Over the past 13 years or so I have been dialing back my fruit consumption since being on a basic 80-10-10 diet for about 4 years. I found the more fruit I cut out the better my overall health became. I did feel great on the 80-10-10, but never quite felt satiated and over time had some minor health issues pop up that didn’t bode well for continuing the diet long term.

Perhaps some of you have been on the same journey. At any rate these days my fruit consumption consists of lemons, limes, and low glycemic berries.

I have this smoothie or something similar every morning and again about 6 or 7 hours later. It really satiates and gives loads of energy to get out and get things done. I pack half in a one quart mason jar for the main part of my lunch.

There is a great deal of nutrition packed into this recipe, with the seeds, sprouts, cilantro, avocado, lemon, etc. This is a smoothie that can easily be changed up by substituting different herbs, sprouts or greens.

Ingredients for the Keto Smoothie

1 or 2 little gem lettuce heads, or equivalent

1 stalk of celery

2 avocados

1 handful of cilantro

Your favorite fresh sprouts

1” chunk of fresh ginger root

1 tsp black cumin seed

1 tsp black sesame seed

2 tablespoons hemp seeds

2 tablespoons flax seeds

½ lemon

1 or 2 tablespoons of MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides) (optional)

1 tsp Chlorella powder (optional)

Water as needed

Directions

Blend ingredients in a high speed blender like the Blendtec or Vitamix until smooth and creamy. Makes 2 one quart servings.

People following a keto diet can add more fat or oil to up your keto game if you like.

Is it just me, or is clean consuming pretty darn difficult? I don't peg myself as an unhealthy eater by any methods, however I...
