Going Loco for the Coco!

Going Loco for the Coco!

Going Loco for the Coco! So many amazing products come from coconuts. Coconut water, coconut oil, activated charcoal, the list goes on! We love adding a teaspoon of coconut oil/butter to our smoothies  and making our Fat Buring Lemonade  with Coconut Water for extra hydration this summer! Have you tried it yet? • • • Some fun Facts :   Coco for the Loco  : the name coconut is derived from 16th century Portuguese sailors who thought the 3 small holes on the coconut shell looked like the human face so dubbed the fruit “coco” meaning “grinning face, or grin” The Coconut fruit is a drupe not a nut. Other drupes include peaches, plums, and cherries. Coconut water is also gaining popularity as a sports drink as it contains good levels of sugars, dietary fiber, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Coconut water can be a substitute for blood plasma. The high level of sugar and other salts make it possible to add the water to the bloodstream, similar to how an IV solution works in modern medicine. Coconut water was known to be used during World War II in tropical areas for emergency transfusions. Coconut milk is not the same as coconut water. Coconut milk has a high fat content of around 17%, but is low in sugars. It is frequently added to curries and other savoury dishes. Coconut cream can also be created from the milk.

The meat is used fresh or dried in cooking, especially in confections and desserts such as...

Golden Latte (Turmeric Milk)

Golden Latte (Turmeric Milk)

I highly recommend a regular Golden Latte kinda night. This delicious golden turmeric milk is healing, detoxifying and comforting and has sooooo many health benefits!! This nutrient rich drink is a great immune booster, is anti-inflammatory, part of a healthy gut diet protecting the colon . If you like your golden milk quite thick add to the almond milk a little light (canned) coconut milk, this is perfect for a more creamier base. Don’t skip on the Coconut oil, this makes the turmeric more available for our bodies to absorb because it is fat-soluble and adds a spoonful of healthy fat. And same goes for black pepper as it also makes the curcumin in turmeric more bioavailable.   In Saucepan mix : * 1 1/2 cups almond milk (DIY blend with 2 dates or store-bought) * 1 tsp ground turmeric * 1/2 tsp ashwagandha root powder * 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger and a pinch black pepper * 1 tsp Coconut Oil * 1 scoop of Fat Burning Lemonade buy here. * 1 tsp Manuka Honey to sweeten Gently simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

The First 30 Days, what can people expect to face in the first month?

A little snippet and insight from Gregory Joujon-Roche, 2007 – such an inspirational guide!   Q: What can people expect to face in the first month?   GREGORY JOUJON-ROCHE, 2007: Week One : You’re full of optimism, new information, new feelings in your body, and you’re using new muscles, following a new eating regimen. You’re starting to see some results. Life hasn’t taken over your schedule yet – you’ve postposed parties, business dinners, and other commitments. Week Two : You’re doing…okay. Clothes fit a bit better already, but the nutrition aspect is hard to maintain because social obligations creep in. Week Three : Expect a plateau – you won’t likely be dropping pounds now.  You might start feeling negative, but this is the time to keep your head down and show up. Focus on how you feel, not numbers, at this stage. Week four : This is when you reevaluate your regimen. Ask yourself, What can I do better? What can I do differently? Now increase the challenge!   Staying started is the TRICK. Try our Fat Burning...
