I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

why not feta cheese ?

My Greek partner would ask the same question! You can add feta (or use in place of part of the cream cheese) if you like 😊

Delicious!! At first I found the amount of butter to be overpowering but I quickly got used to it 😉 In addition to eating these on their own, I also plopped some on top of my salmon dinner and it melted into a delicious sauce. And then I added it to asparagus and yum. And then I made a loaf of keto bread just so I can use it as a spread...
I clearly love this recipe. Thanks for coming up with something so wonderful!

I love that idea, almost like a cross between compound butter and cream cheese dip 😊

How many fat bombs would you use per day when trying to lose weight?

Hi Hillary, that depends on how you use them. They are high in fat and can easily add up and exceed your energy requirements. They can help with weight loss if you use them in moderation as a quick source of energy, e.g. when you don't have time to cook. Do not use fat bombs only to increase your fat intake if your goal is to lose weight.

These are tastey! Do you know the calories? Although I understand keto diet focuses on net carbs, fat and protein, my APP I use to track my food and exercise requires a calorie measurement. Please and Thanks!

Hello Debbie, calories are listed as "kcal". I hope this helps!

Is it 2 tsp of each individual herb, or is it 2 tsp total herbs?

Hi Kasey, it refers to total amount.

Can't think of anything else than coconut, love it! 😊 So tempting to try these since they don't look savoury at all 😊
