Low Carb Fat Balls

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been active on my blog. Some things have changed and some things are getting better, but the first and foremost I’m started on a healthier lifestyle and it takes quite some time and energy, especially for a newbie like me. But I am already both feeling and seeing the difference in my body and I really like these changes. So what am I talking about? And what is this new lifestyle called?

KETOGENIC (“Keto”) DIET (even I don’t like to call it a diet, but more like a lifestyle)! It’s a high-fat, adequate-protein and low-carb diet. If you want to learn something more about Keto and Ketosis, just search it on the almighty Google ūüėä There are so many great articles and short guides about this whole high-fat movement.

I just wanted to make a short introductions , because from now on all my recipes I’ll be sharing with you guys going to be Keto and Low-Carb friendly. ¬†And as my first post in this new chapter of my Keto Lifestyle, I wanted to introduce you to my 4 different Fat Ball options. Because these little “bad boys” are my ultimate Must-Haves on daily basis. A perfect snack option for my Low Carb sweet tooth.
