Luteal Phase Fat Balls

Cycle Synching Eat Luteal Phase

I’ve been snacking on these in my stories for the past week and I’m so excited to finally bring you the recipe! Luteal phase fat balls! I know, I know. Who actually wants to eat something called fat balls? Well, these are the ultimate source of healthy fatty acids + energy boosting alchemy. Sugar cravings take over my life. That’s right, I still fall victim time and time again to the most powerful drug out there. These energy bites provide the perfect taste to curb those cravings and your endocrine system will thank you for it!

Ingredients

– 1/2 cup of walnuts

– 1/4 cup of mixed nut or almond butter
– 2 Tbs melted coconut oil
– 2 Tbs cacao nibs
– 1/4 cup coconut flour
– 2 Tbs melted ghee (or sub more coconut oil if vegan)
– 1 tsp. Vanilla extract

– 1-2 scoops of collagen peptides (omit if vegan)

Make it

In a food processor or blender, mix all ingredient together. Roll into balls. Roll in extra coconut flour and a touch of cinnamon. Store in the fridge for freshness. Devour. (Also amazing topped with some probiotic coconut yogurt, hint hint.)

Nourishing with Intention

  • Walnuts are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids + anti-inflammatory (honoring your luteal phase!)

Gluten-Free Honey Coconut Granola
This granola is a gut's dream, packed with gluten-free rolled oats and refined sugar-free sweetness.

Farmer’s Market Pita
Hello! While I haven't written a blog post in ages, this is a recipe I just couldn't keep to myself. The days of summer are coming to an end (and slowly but surely breaking my heart in the process) but this was a little reminder to myself to keep at it in the kitchen before the glorious produce does the same. Between the caramelized spicy eggplant, crisp and tangy pickled onions, and creamy dairy-free cashew ranch, this meal is one for sharing (and impressing) your friends as well as treating yourself. Some of these ingredients I purchased from Whole Foods, while others I made from scratch. Each is linked if it was purchased, and the t ...
