Hemp Kale Salad

This is one of my favourite salads (quantities adapted slightly) from Leanne Vogel’s e-book The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide +30-day Meal Plan.

I picked up her e-book and have been loving a lot of her recipes. I also based many of the “fat snacks” that I offered in my Gain Energy Lose Fat sessions from her book.

I use this dressing on many of my other salads now instead of using maple syrup based dressing…I’m loving the new flavours. Continue reading »

Why consume Coconut Oil and MCT Oil?

 

This is an except for the Busy Mama Program regarding the importance of adding these two great oils into your diet to help you get smarter, lose fat and so much more….

 

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is a healthy fat that:

  • Is a highly efficient fuel that helps your body burn fat and create instant energy
  • Can raise your HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Help to protect you against heart disease
  • Will boost your immune system
  • It’s a natural antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, making it very effective at combating yeast and parasites4
  • Is ideal for dry, rough and wrinkled skin because it contains MCFA’s (medium chained fatty acids) and is easily absorbed by the skin
    • It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones
    • Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young, healthy and free from infections
    • It’s also an excellent lip balm5 (I keep it in my bathroom, kitchen and a little jar in my purse)
  • Consuming coconut oil regularly restores thyroid function, often relieves hypothyroidism and actually increases the metabolic rate, leading to weight loss5
