Snacks on Keto
Transitioning to keto can be a challenge. You have to abandon the majority of snacks you used to know and love in favor of hacks or alternatives.
Gone are the days when you can haphazardly chuck boxes of processed pseudo-foods into your shopping cart, ushering in anything that suits your fancy.
But, that’s not totally a bad thing. For starters, you’re going to start putting a lot more quality foods into your diet.
And you’re going to discover a lot of interesting (and tasty!) foods and snacks you may not have otherwise tried. Like these 221 foods to boost energy.
Or these keto turmeric coconut snack balls.
Ingredients in These Snack Balls
Let’s talk about the “why” behind this seemingly odd combination of ingredients. I promise there is a method to the madness.
I should start off by assuring you these taste good. After all, if you don’t eat them, you wasted your time and money. And that’s not cool.
So yes, they are tasty. So tasty, in fact, that you’ll have to limit yourself to one snack bite per serving.
Turmeric isn’t exactly a popular ingredient in sweets and snacks. But the potential benefits to health and weight loss are too good to ignore.
The benefits of turmeric include:
The curcumin in turmeric may speed up weight loss
Studies have shown benefits for people with type 2 diabetes
Turmeric has long been used to fight inflammation
It has been helpful to many sufferings from osteoarthritis
The spice aids in liver health
Possible benefits for preventing or fighting cancer
Basically, it’s a super spice that we would all do well to consume more of.
Moving on, this recipe also contains unsweetened shredded coconut. This is going to help give these snack balls a better texture.
The coconut butter, in addition to being delicious, helps hold everything together. Nothing is worse than your delicious snack falling apart all over your clothes. Especially if that snack ball is bright yellow.
Finally, turmeric can taste a bit bitter. To counter that, I suggest using stevia or erythritol.
If you’re loving the effects of turmeric and thinking about making it a regular part of your day, consider trying our own Turmeric Soothe supplement.
