They’re super excited about these two new products, and while I wasn’t...



They’re super excited about these two new products, and while I wasn’t at first that totally changed when I took the time to actually try them – in totally DIFFERENT ways. So when they offered to send me more to play around with at home, and offered to sponsor a post here for me to share my opinion & creative ideas with you, I said YES!

I know we all have different taste preferences, and tons of people have told me they LOVE lemon flavor and miss fruity flavors on a keto diet.

I’m not a “fruity flavor” person myself, but I have to admit… the cookies and tea are SO light & refreshing on a hot summer day!

Talk about a happy surprise. ??

Let’s start with their Fat Tea though, because a Keto Matcha is a really cool concept – and FatSnax really took that concept to the next level with this product.

FatSnax “Fat Tea” – Keto Matcha Tea

Just reading the box, this appealed to me for all the right reasons.

Not because it was matcha or because it was green (lol, the two reasons I avoided it!), but because it has a solid serving of Medium Chain Triclycerides (MCT):

It’s the same if you want it cold – you can add it to a shaker bottle with water or coconut milk, or you can just stir it into a glass of water and then add ice.

It doesn’t require brewing like I assumed, which makes it super easy to enjoy.

Of course, being a coffee drinker it’s hard to sway me to a totally new hot drink. And like I said, it was the ICED matcha tea that really got me hooked, so that’s how I decided to enjoy it last night.

And I got creative and added raspberries to my Iced Matcha Fat Tea, which made it prettier (lol) and added a nice fruity bump to the light refreshing flavor.

THAT was delicious. ??

It’s light and refreshing, already slightly sweetened, and WAY better than “iced tea” which has always had a bitter taste to it to me.

I can never get “unsweet tea” quite sweet enough – without ruining it. ??

The FatSnax keto friendly matcha tea is good hot. I love the flavor, and add a little heavy cream & vanilla and it’s pretty heavenly to be honest. But drinking it iced with raspberries is what really tickled my tastebuds!

You simply mix one packet of the FatSnax Fat Tea with 4 tablespoons (or 2 ounces) of cream cheese. I used Philadelphia 5 Simple Ingredients brand cream cheese, which is only half carb per ounce – making this “frosting” VERY low carb, and full of healthy fats. Including that all-important MCT for increasing your ketone levels!

Since I was going to put them on tart Lemony Lemon FatSnax Cookies, and the Fat Tea itself is not super sweet (just right!), I decided to add just HALF a TBSP (only a dab!) of sugar free vanilla syrup.

I used ChocZero Vanilla Syrup, but you could just add a little vanilla extract or any sugar free vanilla – if you want to sweeten it to taste.

It made for an AWESOME treat! ??

And the entire bowl of icing was only 2 net carbs – which was enough to ice four cookies, easily. Very liberally actually!

I wish you could taste that through your screen. ??

The brand new Lemony Lemon FatSnax Cookies have this amazing aroma the minute you open the package, and then a super light texture with the perfect lemon flavor.

They’re very soft, almost like a super moist shortbread. They don’t crumble all over or fall apart on you at all, and they’re not overly sweet – yet they’re packed with flavor.

I think “shortbread” is the closest description I can get to both the texture and flavor.

They aren’t overly sweet and they don’t have that bad aftertaste or weird tingling effect in your mouth like some other keto sweets.

They also offer a Variety Pack with all three flavors of their FatSnax Cookies: chocolate chip, lemony lemon and peanut butter.

I remember not really caring for the chocolate chip & peanut butter FatSnax cookies before. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, I just didn’t LOVE them. They were good, but not something I just HAD to have.

I think that’s because I fell in love with their Ginger Turmeric flavor, which they no longer make. (Boo!) But to be honest, the new Lemony Lemon totally trumps even that one. ??

Anyway, I was trying the chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies again recently and had to ask them if they changed the recipe?? Their answer: Nope, it’s the same!

I asked because all of a sudden they taste GREAT to me now.

In fact I shared this picture with you in my last food diary of the Chocolate Chip FatSnax cookies with almond butter, which was GREAT:

Color me impressed. I thought for sure they changed the recipe!

I love the quality of ingredients they use, I love the super soft light texture and perfectly sweetened flavor. And I especially love that they don’t have an icky aftertaste or weird tingling effect in your mouth.

Maybe THAT’s the reason I love them more now than I used to…

I’ve tried way too many products that were NOT as good, or left me wanting to brush my teeth four times to get the aftertaste out of my mouth. ?? haha

These are GREAT. I can make a peanut butter & almond butter “cookie sandwich” and easily call it breakfast with my coffee, or have it as an afternoon snack, and still feel like I’m eating healthy – and high quality foods.

I love that. ??

This though, the Matcha Frosting idea… Brilliant!

I licked the bowl clean when I made it. ??

Which only took a few quick seconds, btw.

What I love most is that they are super compact, individually packaged single-serve packets. Now I have “MCT in my pocket!” on the go – without the mess. ??

That makes it super convenient to fuel my hikes by adding it to my bottled water or shaker bottle, pulling it out in a restaurant to add to my ice water, making a quick hot tea in a hotel room – you name it.

And you know how I always swipe the cream cheese off the condiment section of a hotel breakfast bar? ?? Now I can easily whip up something delicious to dip my berries & pecans in while traveling!

I still think the Fat Tea LOOKS gross, but I’m sold on the flavor…

It’s refreshing and delicious!

Especially in this late summer afternoon heat. ??

Have you tried FatSnax Cookies or Fat Tea yet?

If you’ve tried any of the FatSnax products I would love to hear your thoughts, which flavors you liked best, and HOW you like to enjoy them!

I know right, Cynthia! ?? I love the idea of being able to add it to my water bottle on a hike for an energy boost – or to whip up a frosting to dip berries & pecans in, or to spread on low carb cookies (even my own homemade cookies!).

Such a fun & delicious idea, and exactly what I was looking for: easy ways to get my MCT in to increase ketone production… without having to FORCE myself to down a tbsp of it straight ?? yuck! lol

Errrrrr NO….. Sorry Lyn. I cannot do lemon cookies with green stuff. Lol. I am sure it is good but I cannot get over the globs of green stuff

Now the chocolate chip with almond butter——oh yeah. Good stuff.

LOL I don’t even LIKE lemon flavor *anything* usually, but these are SO good. The matcha is new to me too, and I didn’t even think I could drink something green (haha) but it’s super light and refreshing. Way better than regular tea!

I’m like you – usually peanut butter/chocolate/etc. But to be honest, that gets boring after awhile. This was a fun, refreshing flavor-blast switch up that was delicious! I’m so glad I finally tried both, and even more so: together!

I doubt I ever would have tried it (either of them) if they hadn’t had samples out at the event. It has me encouraged to try even more stuff, because my taste buds have obviously changed a lot since going keto.

I think the only other time in my life I liked anything tart or fruity was when I was pregnant with my daughter 23 years ago. ??

I was actually tempted to mix the matcha tea into my scrambled eggs yesterday, which I’m sure will make them GREEN EGGS haha, but – yeah, I think I’ll try that today actually. Machta has a lot of health benefits, and the dose of MCT is a great way to start the day. ??

The lemon is SO good! ?? I think the peanut butter and chocolate chip FatSnax cookies are more like shortbread, and I love those with my morning coffee, or as a quick snack with a handful of pecans in the afternoon. But the lemon is a delicious treat!

I do like their matcha, especially that they’re single serve packets. That’s super convenient. And I definitely love it iced, or in my water bottle while I’m hiking. ?? Enjoy!!

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options

Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.

Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.

In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.

Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.

1. Subway

Sandwich with cheese and vegetables

One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.

Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.

Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.

A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.

Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell

Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.

According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.

One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.

3. Chipotle

Vegetable burritos

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.

Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.

Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.

For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.

4. McDonald's

McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.

5. Burger King

Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.

It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.

6. Wendy

Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate

Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.

Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.

The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.

Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
