The Keto diet. It seems everyone these days is on a high protein and high fat diet. It is a great way to jump start weight loss. There is no doubt that my recent weight loss has been fueled by intentional eating and planning snacks carefully throughout the day.

I’ve recently read even more about the KETO diet being linked to mental health in a podcast by Mel Robbins and Harvard Psychiatrist Dr. Chris Palmer – take a listen here.

While looking for a simple way to stay on my Keto diet throughout the day, I found this recipe for Keto coconut lemon balls on the internet last year. I have tweaked the recipe to add more zing to the taste and changed the sweetener to Splenda Naturals with Stevia. You may prefer straight up Splenda that dissolves, but I like the texture of the crunchy bits of sweetener.

I also prefer full fat Greek yogurt to sour cream- some recipes call for sour cream but I pretty much always substitute Greek Yogurt for sour cream these days. The brighter flavor and health benefits make Greek yogurt an easy swap. A bite of these at work in the afternoon satisfies your sweet tooth without blowing your Keto diet .
