Fat Bombs

Testimony of the Day

“Hi Maria, I just want to tell everyone what a difference you’ve made in not only my family’s life, but my patients too. As a doctor, I was always pushing “healthy whole grains” and fruits like bananas for potassium, but after looking at myself in the mirror, I knew something wasn’t right with this idea of calories in and calories out. I was eating a very clean diet of “healthy whole grains,” quinoa and tons of fruit, but I was overweight, had adult acne and was feeling a bit depressed. And I had anxiety when it came to food; counting points was not working for me.

One of my patients gave me a copy of your book and I was so inspired, I decided to do a phone consult, which forever changed my life. I have to be honest, the first week was awful. I felt like one of my patients suffering from drug withdrawal, but I now understand that the sugars and grains were my drug. Your explanation on how the protein in the wheat is similar to other proteins in the body which was causing cellular mimicry in my nervous system and brain was causing my slight depression made total sense. You taught me that I was gluten sensitive; this too was shocking to me since I didn’t suffer from any intestinal issues. But after working with you for 6 weeks I no longer felt depressed! Not only that, but I lost 31 pounds and no longer had to use my topical medication for adult acne (but after watching your cosmetics tutorial video, I realized how toxic those products were to my liver which also contributed to my poor moods and inability to lose weight). 

You not only changed my life, but my kids are now 100% grain free and enjoy picking out recipes from your kids cookbook for snacks at school. I also feel so much better about setting a good example for my patients, I felt uncomfortable preaching to them about what to eat while being overweight. Now I know the whole truth and I am forever grateful. The consult with you really changed my life more than you will ever realize.” – Dr. Sally

IMMUNE HEALTH 

Have you ever noticed our kids get sick a lot from Halloween until Valentine’s Day? HMMMM, there are a lot of Holidays in between that time that focus on candy. Sugar depresses the immune system. Vitamin C is needed by white blood cells so that they could phagocytize viruses and bacteria. White blood cells require a 50 times higher concentration inside the cell as outside so they have to accumulate vitamin C.There is something called a “phagocytic index” which tells you how rapidly a particular lymphocyte can gobble up a virus, bacteria, or cancer cell.

In 1970, Linus Pauling, discovered that white blood cells need a high dose of vitamin C and that is when he came up with his theory that you need high doses of vitamin C to combat the common cold.We know that glucose and vitamin C have similar chemical structures, so what happens when the sugar levels go up? They compete for one another when entering the cells. And the thing that mediates the entry of glucose into the cells is the same thing that mediates the entry of vitamin C into the cells. If there is more glucose around, there is going to be less vitamin C allowed into the cell. It doesn’t take much: a blood sugar value of 120 reduces the phagocytic index by 75%. So when you eat sugar, think of your immune system slowing down to a crawl.Simple sugars aggravate asthma, cause mood swings, magnify personality changes, muster mental illness, fuel nervous disorders, increase diabetes and heart disease, grow gallstones, accelerate hypertension, and magnify arthritis. Since sugar lacks minerals and vitamins, they draw upon the body’s micro-nutrient stores in order to be metabolized into the system.

So what are you sending your kids off to school with? A bowl of cereal and skim milk? A Poptart? To keep your kids healthy and focused at school, try organic eggs with lots of omega 3’s and healthy protein!

So, let’s keep everyone in the family healthy with these treats instead!

2 TBS coconut oil (melted)
2 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
1 TBS almond butter
1 TBS coconut flour
Stevia glycerite (optional to taste…I didn’t use any)

Mix cocoa into the coconut oil. Then add in the almond butter, mix until smooth. Then add the coconut flour (and sweetener if desired). Pour into mini ice cube trays. Freeze for at least 5-6 minutes and either store in the fridge or freezer. Makes 4 servings.

“Healthified” Fat Bombs = 100 calories, 9.7g fat, 1.8g protein, 3.2g carbs, 1.7 fiber (85% fat, 7% protein, 12% carbs)

    Hi Maria,
    I was out of almond butter and made these with Nutiva’s Coconut Manna as the texture is similar to almond butter. Came out tasting like an almond joy, exactly the “sweet treat” I was craving :)
    Cheers and thanks!
