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!)
  • Nut butter ^
  • Coconut oil ^
  • Cacao nibs are high in antioxidants and absorb free radicals from the body
  • Coconut flour is high in protein, fiber, and fats
  • Ghee is rich in vitamins A, D, and E and suitable for lactose sensitivities
  • Vanilla contains numerous antioxidants
  • Collagen Peptides provide gut-health by supplying the material to build back gut-lining

Gluten-Free Blueberry Tahini Cookies
Made these on a whim tonight because I "just felt like baking". Usually, I have to recipe test baked goods pretty hard. Like, I have still yet to master gluten-free pancakes hard. (Let a girl know if you have a secret recipe) These cookies tonight though, they were so fluffy and delightful. I love recipes like this that can be used for multiple different occasions. I could take these to a party or I could literally eat them for breakfast. They're that nourishing! Also super easy to digest for all my GP friends out there, I got you. Let's talk about tahini really quick too. It's one of the highest sources of calcium you can get. I just f ...

Mediterranean Orzo Salad
I'm not sure what it is about this summer, but I've been dying to go to Europe. I'm typing this while sitting beside my window, watching the rainfall, and daydreaming of soaking up some sun and dipping my feet in the Mediterranean Sea. While I may be stuck in the US for now, I'm bringing more foreign cuisine into my kitchen. This is one of my go-to dishes for summer parties, picnics, events, you name it. With less than ten ingredients and one step, that's right just one, I'm sure you'll be keeping this recipe in the books too. And it stays fresh for days in my gallon Stasher bag! My favorite part about this salad is how refreshing it is ...

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Fat Balls
No food processor necessary. I repeat, NO FOOD PROCESSOR NECESSARY! Game changer happening over here. Have you ever seen a recipe you've really wanted to recreate but didn't have the necessary equipment? This happens to me all of the time, especially with the ever-popular energy/ fat balls. The only equipment needed for these babies includes a mixing bowl, a large fork, and your hands (bonus if you already have small parchment cups for chilling them). I don't know about you guys, but it feels like I've been overloaded with pumpkin recipes here and there. So I promise this is one of the last! (And one of the best in my personal opinion, w ...
