Healthy Fats and Proteins Satiate Your Appetite

Pro Tip:

Don't skip the salt! Adding some grey Celtic salt or pink Himalayan salt to any dish can bring out the flavors and provide much needed trace minerals that our bodies need to function optimally!

Salt is made up of sodium and chloride. Chloride provides the building blocks of the hydrochloric (HCL) acid in your stomach. If your body is not producing enough acid in your stomach, the sphincter at the opening to your esophegus will not close, and you will wind up with heartburn.

The good news is, you don't have to since it is low carb and loaded with healthy fats to satiate your appetite. Fats and proteins help you stay fuller longer without the need for constant carb and sugar reloads every 3-4 hours.
