If you haven't heard, fat bombs are the new keto snack people are obsessed with, and these low-carb nutty coconut balls are about to become your new obsession.

They're made with lots of healthy fats from nuts and seeds: raw almonds, cashew butter, almond flour, flaxseed meal, and hemp seeds. These keto balls also include shredded coconut and coconut oil, and we threw some protein powder into the mix to give it a protein boost.

This is a true life experience with Doctor Ewan who helped me save my marriage by doing a pregnancy spell for me. My name is jenny clouds and i from somalia but currently live in manchester . my husband amd i have been married for over 6 years. We didn't have any children. My husband was not happy with this because we have tried for many years now to have a child that we thought of adopting but the idea wasn't the best for us. my husband even talked about divorce!! i was scared to loose my husband.3 months after my husband started talking about divorce, i saw a post on facebook which taled about a spell caster on how he helpes people from various problems and his name was Dr Ewan. I sent a mail to him through his email address, I explained everything to him and he told me not to worry. i was over excited, he comforted me with his words, he told me that we are going to do a pregnancy spell, i was scared but i had no choice. he told me what to do and i did it. he actually did the love spell, he gave me assurance that i will become pregnant in 2 days, i thought he was joking. this is the 11th month after meeting Dr Ewan, now i have a set of twins, a boy and a girl. God bless you Dr Ewan, thank you for what you have done for me, Please contact and meet Doctor Ewan if you are passing through any difficulty in life like the one i was passing through at and visit website at or call or add him on watsapp on +2349078040531. there are still real people out there helping people. is one of them
