5 Guilt-Free Bedtime Snacks

We have all been there. There are still a couple of hours until bedtime, dinner is most definitely over, and yet… you are hungry. Not starving or anything, but just peckish enough that you would not be able to sleep, and if you tried you know you’d be heading downstairs in the wee small hours to help yourself to whatever sinful treats can be found… A lot of the most common go-to snacks such as chocolate, ice cream, and cereal contain high levels of caffeine which will keep you awake.

5 Killer Keto No-Bake Fat-Bomb Recipes

‘Fat Bombs’ and weight loss may not sound like they belong together in the same sentence but they actually do.

I have adapted the recipes several times finding ways to reduce the sugar more and more and still have it be a lovely treat.
