This wonderful recipe from Dr. Jockers for fat burning glazed cookie bites is a great reminder that healthy eating isn’t about deprivation. It’s about eating the RIGHT fats, carbs and proteins as well as introducing the best supplements when necessary.
Dr. Jockers reminds us that one of the incorrect dietary recommendations we are still struggling to break free of, was the switch to low-fat and high-carb intake. In theory it made sense that in order to reduce issues such as heart disease and high cholesterol we must reduce fat intake. In reality this had the opposite effect.
“In America, we were told to avoid saturated fat and eat lots of low-fat grains and carbs. What was the result? Heart disease effects 1 out of 2 and diabetes, cancer, autoimmunity and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are through the roof!” Dr. Jockers
Many of us would never have dreamed, only a couple short decades ago, that eating fat was good for us!
This scrumptious recipe is full of the health benefits of coconut, including it in shredded, oil and butter form. In addition, almond butter is used with the wonderful lemon!
“Coconut has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar levels, improve our immune system, enhance brain function and reduce scarring in our arteries. Not only that, but coconut products taste amazing!” Dr. Jockers
