Keto Fat Bomb RecipeKeto Fat Bomb Recipe with Cinnamon & Almond Butter

Most of us have spent our lives avoiding fat. When eating keto, Making the adjustment to not just eating fat but embracing fat can be tough. And if you’ve ever wondered how to eat more fat on keto, keto fat bombs are key.

What are keto fat bombs? Low-carb and low-protein, keto bombs are high-fat snacks, making them a great way to increase your fat intake on the keto diet, while also controlling hunger. They’re similar to energy balls, but keto bombs skip the oats, grains and sweeteners that make up most of those. Instead, they’re packed with healthy fats like nut butters, grass-fed butter and other tasty, high-fat foods.

Prep Time: 10 minutes, Total Time: 1 hour, Serves: 12

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup Grass-fed butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup Almond butter (crunchy or smooth)

  2. Add in the vanilla and cinnamon, stirring until well-combined.

  4. Freeze for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

One egg is about 78 calories and has a whopping 6.3 grams of protein, while one serving of avocado is packed with 113 calories, vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber and protein.

These healthy deviled eggs are vegetarian-friendly, dairy-free and fit into Paleo and ketogenic diets.

Keto Coffee RecipeKeto Coffee Recipe

Keto coffee is the perfect morning or afternoon beverage for someone following a ketogenic diet. It’s also a way of giving this ketogenic philosophy of eating a try, with a healthy keto drink!

Instead of loading your coffee with carbohydrate-rich milk and sugar, you’ll add in seriously beneficial nutrients like beef gelatin and bone broth collagen, and substitute some vitamin-rich butter for creamer. Replacing sugar with a nice sprinkle of cinnamon satisfies a need for sweet and helps to keep blood sugar from spiking.

Total time: 5 minutes, Serves: 1

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Organic coffee
  • 1 scoop Collagen powder made from bone broth
  • 1 scoop Beef gelatin (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. Grass-fed butter

Once finished, remove from heat and set aside.

        8. Return chicken and apricots to skillet and use a spoon to coat chicken with sauce. Drizzle the extra virgin olive oil to finish. Serve over grains or starch of choice, like rice, quinoa, couscous, cauliflower rice or mashed potatoes.

        Grilled Apricot & Pesto Prosciutto Flatbread

        Homemade pesto, freshly caramelized grilled apricots and crispy prosciutto are the perfect trio atop flatbread. Recipe provided by our blogger friend, Lauren, from Bon Appeteach.

        Grilled Apricot & Pesto Prosciutto Flatbread

        Ingredients:

        • 4 Low-carb tortillas or flatbreads
        • 2 Ripe apricots, halved and pitted
        • 1 cup Freshly grated mozzarella
        • 4 slices Prosciutto
        • 1/4 cup Almonds
        • 1/2 cup Fresh basil
        • 1 Garlic clove
        • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
        • Oil, as needed

        Directions:

        1. Preheat your grill to medium heat and set it up for indirect cooking.
        2. In a food processor, combine the fresh basil, almonds, garlic, and parmesan cheese. Pulse a few times until it starts to break down and look crumbly. Slowly drizzle in the oil until a nice pesto paste forms.
        3. On your flatbread, place a few tablespoons of pesto across the top. Add the freshly grated mozzarella and tear up pieces of prosciutto to go over the top. Place the flatbreads on indirect heat and cook on the grill until crispy and the cheese has melted.
        4. While the flatbreads are cooking on direct heat, place the apricots cut side down across the grates. Cook for 2 minutes or so. You want the apricots to char slightly and caramelize. Remove from the heat when cooked and slice each half into 4 pieces.
        5. When the flatbreads are cooked and crispy, top each flatbread with 4 slices of apricot. Serve whole or cut into quarters to make it easier to share.

        Peach Parfait with Maple Bacon Crumbles

        The salty and sweet combination with fresh peaches is a perfect addition to your breakfast lineup. The bonus is that this recipe only requires five ingredients. Recipe provided by our blogger friend, Mary Ellen, from Milk N Honey Nutrition.

        Peach Parfaits

        Ingredients:

        • 5 slices Bacon
        • 1 Tbsp. Maple syrup
        • 2 Fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
        • 2 cups Plain Greek yogurt
        • 2/3 cup Granola

        Directions:

        1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a baking rack inside the pan. Arrange bacon strips in a single layer on the baking rack.
        2. Using a basting brush, lightly brush the bacon with maple syrup. Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy.
        3. Remove the pan from the oven and let the bacon cool completely. Once cooled, crumble the bacon into small pieces and set aside.
        4. To assemble the parfaits: use 2 medium-sized Mason jars or glasses.
        5. For each jar, begin to layer your ingredients in the following order until the jar is full: peach slices, 3 tablespoons granola, 2–3 tablespoons crumbled bacon pieces, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt.
        6. Garnish with extra bacon, granola and peach slices on top.
        7. Note: If your peaches aren’t quite ripe yet, but you’re eager to make these parfaits, slice and peel your peaches and toss them in 1 tablespoon of brown or coconut sugar. Place them in a microwave-safe bowl, and cover. Heat for 90 seconds. This will release some of the juices and allow the peaches to soften.

        5 Easy Ideas for Throwing a Grad Party

        by Katie Sullivan Morford, RDN, founder of Mom’s Kitchen Handbook  Graduation party food ideasGraduation is nearly here. If you’ve got a high school, college or even grad student about to collect a diploma, festivities are in order. It can be tricky to plan and execute, since graduation season can feel overwhelmingly busy. Just know that there is no one-size-fits-all way to celebrate. Here are five fun graduation party food ideas—pick the right one for you and your graduate.

        Backyard BBQ

        With the weather warming up, move the party outdoors to minimize indoor chaos. It’s an ideal solution for more casual gatherings. Go with ribs, burgers and dogs, making sure you have a main dish option for vegetarians as well. Add a few favorite salads and a platter of fresh fruit, and your job is done.
        • Make It Special: For dessert, arrange a make-your-own-ice-cream-sandwich bar. Set out Bakery Cookie Trays from Sprouts, a tub of vanilla ice cream, and an ice cream scooper and let everyone get to it.

        Open House

        If you want to invite a lot of people without a lot of work, an open house is the way to go. It can be as straightforward as putting together a few simple appetizers and setting up a bar with your favorite drinks. With Sprouts, you can make it a little more substantial with no effort by ordering Pretzel Hoagie Platters along with a Fresh Vegetable and Hummus Tray.
        • Make It Special: Create a signature mocktail to serve the graduates, such as pineapple/orange juice blended with fresh strawberries served over ice with little paper umbrellas for added flair.

        Sit-down Dinner

        For something on the more intimate side, a sit-down dinner is a pretty sweet way to celebrate. Start off with an elegant Signature Cheese Tray from Sprouts. For the entree, side and salad, poll your graduate to find out their favorite dishes. If they’re off to college, these are the recipes they’re going to miss!
        • Make It Special: Put your graphic design skills to work by printing an official menu to put at each place setting. It will make the evening feel special and doubles as graduation memorabilia.

        Brunch

        Depending on the timing of graduation, doing brunch can be a lively way to celebrate. If you have a signature brunch recipe, now is the time to pull it out. If not, start by settling on one main dish, ideally something you can make ahead, such as an egg casserole or baked French toast. Fill in from there by adding a Fresh Fruit Trays and a European Bakery Tray from Sprouts. Make it extra pretty by arranging the fruit and baked goods on your best platters (nobody needs to know they didn’t come out of your own kitchen!).
        • Make It Special: Pick up flowers and balloons that are the colors of your graduate’s soon-to-be school. It won’t go unnoticed.

        Potluck

        If your budget is tight, consider joining forces with families of other graduates and host a potluck. Map out a game plan, dividing up main dishes, sides, salads, desserts and beverages so you have a nice balance on the table. Keep clean up easy (and eco-friendly) by using the compostable paper goods sold at Sprouts.
        • Make It Special: Gather or make a few silly props, masks, and signs, and set up a make-shift photo booth. If you can get your hands on an instant camera, everyone goes home with a memento from the day.
