  • Calorie/Fat Bomb Ideas

    The BF and I are on the whole 30, and therefore no dairy/fruit. He used to have a protein shake everyday with coconut oil, whey protein, bananas and milk. Now he isn't have that he's finding it really difficult to make up the calories without dairy and fruit.

    Any ideas to make his shake better with only water? (He's not a big coconut milk fan)

    Any high cal/high fat foods to recommend (he already goes through plenty of eggs/sweet potatoes). Avocados are great, but $$$!

    He's an eating machine!

    Hmmm...

    Try this:

    Two cups (16 oz) of brewed black tea (think a nice chocolatey one)
    Eight ounces unsweetened coconut milk
    Two or three tablespoons coconut oil
    Optional: One tablespoon almond butter
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        If you're a tea geek, good tea recommendations are any Keemun black tea, Yunnan Gold Tips, and the best one of all, Golden Monkey.

        Just brew the tea up hot with water and then add the other ingredients. If you add the optional almond butter then make sure you whisk it up or blend it so the butter doesn't clump up.

          Why not fruit? Those aren't disallowed on a standard Whole30.

              Hmm. This is difficult with no dairy NOR coconut milk.

              Maybe pumpkin puree, eggs, and...almond milk (or just almonds/nuts)? ghee? some type of fat source at any rate.

                I don't recall that she said anything about "no coconut milk," and I included it in my suggestion, which she seemed to like the idea of trying. So, I'd bet it's a go.

                    Use water instead or canned coconut milk.

                      I thought she was just asking for ideas of what to use for her boyfriend:

                        I guess I missed the "not a big fan of coconut milk" part. Hmmm... My suggestion still work, though. Just up coconut oil a little and DO include the almond butter for sure.
