So, you’ve gone keto — the high-fat, low carb way of life that promises a rocket-powered metabolism, a lean figure and plenty of mental and physical energy (learn all about the benefits here). In case you’re not down for snacking on a spoonful of ghee in the middle of your workday, these four fat bombs are the ultimate keto snack.
On the keto diet, healthy fats make up between 50 – 70% of your daily food intake with the intention of kick-starting ketosis, a process where your body burns fat as energy. Especially in the beginning as your body adjusts to keto living, cravings for sugar can ramp, which makes snacking not only a delicious perk but an essential step to staying on track.

We’ve found the best the internet has to offer: vegan, savory, dessert-like. Remember, fats should be clean and well-sourced just like anything we eat.
