When you are following a ketogenic diet, your body switches from using glucose for fuel to burning fat instead. Eating plenty of healthy fat is essential to making this switch and also helps you feel satiated. Fat bombs can be a helpful tool, providing both filling fuel for your body and delicious flavor for your taste buds. Fat bombs can be sweet or savory and range from simply mixing a few ingredients together to waiting for a recipe to come out of the oven. Find a fat bomb that fulfills your craving in this tempting collection.
