I've recently become obsessed with the Ketotarian diet, a plant-based take on the high carb, high fat Keto diet. One of my favorite ways of adapting this eating style into my diet is by having a breakfast full of healthy plant-based fats. Because I prefer working out in the morning, I choose to eat lighter foods like smoothies or avocado toast to keep me full & energized until lunchtime comes around. Below is my high-fat, whole protein & fiber-rich smoothie recipe that will keep you full for hours, especially on the days where you have zero downtime. I guarantee that if you begin to add healthy fats into your meals you will start to notice your inner glow come out into the world.
