Benefits of A FATTY Coffee. Make it On The Go!

Healthy Bites & Recipeson June 12, 2016Leave a Comment

coffee cupIf you’re already a coffee lover, you appreciate the extra kick that coffee gives you in the morning. But what if coffee is actually a health food?

Coffee gets a bad rap, but the science shows that high-quality organic coffee—and I’ll explain what I mean by that—can be an awesome biohack for increased energy and focus as well as a powerful fat-burning aid high in anti-oxidants and polyphenols.

More importantly, good coffee tastes great. It’s like a health food disguised as an indulgence.

Before I give you all the benefits of drinking good coffee, let me define “good coffee.” Good coffee is organic, fair trade, and freshly roasted.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF GOOD COFFEE

  • Decreased risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Protection against Parkinson’s disease
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Protection against liver disease and liver cancer
  • Elevated mood and decreased risk of depression

Of course, these benefits come with moderate coffee consumption—just like most other things, overdoing it can come with some risk. A cup or two a day will get you all the benefits without giving you the jitters!

PLUS, adding grass-fed butter and MCT Oil to your coffee gives you these BONUS BENEFITS:

  • Immediate sustained energy
  • Mental acuity
  • Metabolic kickstart
  • Increased fat-burning

THE BASIC FATTY COFFEE:KK image

Okay, so now it’s time to put down your drive-through caramel vanilla cappuccino and grab the delicious cup of coffee that will really keep you going all day and keep you healthy all—well, a long time!

The basic fatty coffee recipe is: A mug full of freshly brewed good coffee (I recommend  French press), a scant tablespoon of MCT oil, and a scant tablespoon of grass-fed butter, I love adding a little ceylon cinnamon:) Blend in your Vitamix (or high powered blender) while the coffee’s hot. From there, you can take your morning Joe to all kinds of delicious levels!

OR Make it simple and On The Go with KetoKreme!

KETO//KREME, derived from the heart of the coconut, is one of the healthiest natural fats known to the world. Our bodies convert fat into energy quickly giving you a powerful mental boost–we call it brain fuel. Adding KETO//KREME to your daily routine is a simple way to promote a keto lifestyle, prevent food cravings, and install more ketones into your system.
sugar. Because it’s so satisfying, a cup of KETO//KREME is just what you’re
looking for to fuel a high-performance morning!

Dr Jockers Comments

I absolutely LOVE brownies and these are incredible!  Chocolate and coconut are a phenomenal superfood combination that boosts brain function and neurotransmitter activity.  The pasture-raised eggs provide high quality protein, fat soluble anti-oxidants, CLA and omega-3 fatty acids! What a combination!!!

Coconut flour is an excellent low, carb prebiotic fiber that is a great base and provides our digestive system with good fuel to support a healthymicrobiome.  Grass-fed butter is rich in butyrate which helps to heal theintestinal lining and the combination of ingredients has a great ketogeniceffect on the body which reduces inflammation and improves fat burning.

Pumpkin Spiced French Toast- KETO, GF

Healthy Bites & Recipes, Ketones & KetoOSon October 24, 2015Leave a Comment

pumpkinspicefrenchtoast1This delightful classic comes back with a vengeance and is packed full of flavor. Keto French Toast made into a fantastic breakfast that will please anyone! The great flavors of pumpkin spice come through to make a decadent morning meal that can be easily topped with a bit of extra keto maple syrup for the finishing touch. The secret here is the orange extract. Not only does it add a hint of citrus, but it really takes this dish to the next level.

Coming in just short of 80% calories from fat, this breakfast will fill you up and keep you full until lunch. It’s simple, easy, and super tasty and can even be made in advanced. Stick this in the microwave right out of the fridge for about 45 seconds and you have yourself some amazing french toast in little to no time. If you stress about getting to work on time and only have a few minutes to eat, then this is the perfect combination for you!
Ingredients: Pumpkin Spice Bread

  • 1 1/2 cup Almond Flour
    3 large Egg Whites
    1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
    1/2 cup Coconut Milk (from the carton)
    1/4 cup Psyllium Husk Powder
    1/4 cup Swerve Sweetener
    2 tsp. Baking Powder
    1 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice (recipe here)
    1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt

Execution:

1. Measure out all dry ingredients into a sifter.

2. Sift all ingredients into a large bowl. Preheat your oven to 350F. Fill a 9×9 baking dish with about 1 cup of water and place on the bottom rack of the oven.

3. Add pumpkin puree and coconut milk and mix together well. You should have a pretty resistant dough by the time you finish mixing.

4. Whip the egg whites in a second bowl. If needed, add some cream of tartar to the egg whites to keep them stable,

5. Aggressively fold in 1/3 of the egg whites to the dough so that some of the moisture is absorbed. Then, add the rest of the egg whites and gently fold into the dough.

6. Grease a standard bread loaf pan well (with either butter or coconut oil). Then, spread the dough into the bread pan.

7. Bake the bread for 75 minutes. Optionally add 1/4 cup pistachios (I prefer it without the pistachios, so I left them out of the recipe).

8. Remove loaf from the oven and let cool.

9. Slice and serve!

For French Toast:

  • 4 slices Pumpkin Bread (recipe here) ABOVE
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 tbsp. Cream
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp. Orange Extract
  • 1/4 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice (recipe here)
  • 2 tbsp. Butter

Execution:

1. Dry out 4 slices of Pumpkin Bread (recipe here) for this recipe. You can leave the slices out overnight, uncovered to reach the desired dryness.

2. I made 2 batches with this, so the pictures show extra. In a small container, mix together your egg, cream, vanilla extract, orange extract, and pumpkin pie spice.

3. Dip the bread into the mixture and let it soak for about 5 minutes.

4. Flip the bread and allow to soak for 5 more minutes.

5. In a pan, set to medium-low heat and set butter in the middle. Let the butter cook until it starts to brown.

6. Once the butter is browned, add the bread that has now soaked almost all of the mixture. Let this cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side until finished.

7. Top with powdered swerve and/or keto maple syrup (recipe here). Enjoy!

There’s nothing better than brewing yourself a creamy, pumpkin-laced, warm cup of coffee on a cool Fall morning.
