It seems like the hardest meal for me to keep healthy is lunch. It’s difficult to find interesting meals that are easy to make in the morning, transport, and then eat at school or work.
I’ll argue that any dessert is better with whipped cream on top, so naturally I added some on top of my avocado chocolate pudding. That got me thinking about just folding it in to the pudding and trying to make a mousse.…
I know it’s weird, just go me on this. Avocados make great pudding. They’re full of fats, and have a nice smooth texture when blended. If you can just get over the initial weirdness of mixing chocolate into a green vegetable (or is it a fruit?), I promise you’ll love this pudding.
I love coffee. It’s one of the few things that can coax me out of bed in the morning. While I’m normally content with just a splash of cream and a pinch of Truvia in my coffee, sometimes I want something a little more exciting to wake me up.
Welcome to Fat is the Flavor! This site will embody everything that I think is important about food – its taste, and its nourishment to the body and mind.
I believe that a lot of the food we eat today is simply empty calories, and that we should focus on eating food full of nutrients. Instead of looking for foods with the fewest calories, we should eat food that will nourish us, and keep us full and fueled for the day.
Some background on me…In early 2015 I embarked on a ketogenic diet journey with a friend in order to lose weight. Through that, I discovered that my body performed much better when I cut out most carbs. Having been a major sugar addict my whole life, the diet was very eye-opening and drastically changed the way that I look at food and nutrition.
Although I don’t follow a strict ketogenic diet anymore, I do try to lower my carb intake and especially my sugar intake whenever I can. I hope that this blog will keep me inspired to “healthify” my favorite high carb/sugar foods, and inspire others to try new foods.
Thanks for visiting, and come back soon for delicious, low carb food.
