For those of you unfamiliar with the ketogenic diet, you can watch the “mini-course”, but basically, it’s a diet in which you eat the bulk of your calories in fat, HOPEFULLY…HEALTHY FATS, such as avocado, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, salmon, grass-fed butter/ghee, etc. The macronutrient ratio for a typical keto dieter is 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbs – theoretically, SHOULD be in the form of vegetables. A HEALTHY, clean eating keto diet would look like this:

Many people struggle to reach that “70%” mark, for fat intake. One way people boost their fat intake is through “fat bombs”, which are very small, typically bite size snacks which are very high in fat. They give dieters a boost of energy and help them reach their fat intake for the day.

Many fat bombs aren’t so healthy, SO…This week, I’ve scoured youtube and the internet for healthy versions of this keto classic snack.

Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
