Coconut Oil Chocolate Candy – to Curb Sugar & Chocolate Cravings – 2 Recipes

Coconut Oil Chocolate Candy – to Curb Sugar & Chocolate Cravings –  2 Recipes

Coconut Oil Chocolate Candy

 

  • Coconut Fat Bomb Candies

These coconut oil ‘candies’ or ‘fat bombs’ as some people call them, are incredibly useful for evening sugar cravings. They can be made extremely low carb with your alternative sweetener of choice (I prefer xylitol/stevia mix for these), and they are great to have in the fridge for when you are in the throes of a craving, or just great as an evening snack. It’s hard to explain but these seem to satisfy something in my body and I can just feel myself going ‘ahhhhhh… I’m better now’. Maybe it’s the combination of the cocoa powder and coconut together working it’s magic. Whatever it is, I’ll take it!

 

Tips for making Coconut Oil Candies

  • These are yummy but they’re hard to overeat since they are only lightly sweetened and mostly coconut oil, so are extremely satisfying.
  • Cover these candies with dessicated coconut or even crushed almonds to make them fancier “truffles”.
  • Put the mixture in a silcone mold so the finished product is in neat shapes!

Coconut Oil “Candies”

Recipie #1

Yield:

Makes about 18 candies

Ingredients:

Preparation:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or food processor until mixture is smooth. Drop by the tablespoon onto waxed or parchment paper, or into the dessicated coconut. Refrigerate until the candies are solid, then store in a covered container in the fridge.

Recipe # 2

Try this recipe for a nutritious high protein, gluten and dairy free coconut treat.

1 teaspoon of Cold Pressed Coconut Oil (I get mine from Costco)

1 cup of almonds or walnuts

1 cup of organic dates

3-4 tablespoons of raw cocoa powder

Shredded coconut (check it contains no preservatives)

Place all ingredients in a food processor. Roll into small bite size balls and roll into shredded coconut. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to set. 

****REPOSTERS NOTE*** I would use monk fruit as my sweetener of choice for recipe #1 – For recipe #2 – if it seems a bit dry , increase the amount of Coconut Oil.

Last year  Lo Han Kuo was brought to my attention. It is in a product I use daily and I am very pleased with it. Unlike most sweeteners, natural or artificial, It leaves no after taste.  It is actually good for your health as it provides minute amounts of 18 of the 22 basic amino acids our bodies need. 

Lo Han Kuo (or monk fruit) is an ancient Chinese fruit about 200 times sweeter than sugar; 

The only sweetener out there that actually uses Monk fruit that I am aware of is known by the Brand name: Nectresse (actually a blend of monk fruit, erythritol, sugar, and molasses). We have an evening sweet tooth in out house, so I will be making these using Nectresse.

These treats would also be good for the lunch box as a satisfying afternoon snack to beat that afternoon energy slump without the sugar rush of a high sugar snack. They are quick and easy to make which makes them an even more attractive option.

Save Money & Avoid Toxins – 72 Uses For Simple Household Products

Save Money & Avoid Toxins – 72 Uses For Simple Household Products

By Cortney Harden
April 5, 2013 2:53 AM EDT

Limiting the amount of products you bring into your home will not only cut down on costs at the grocery store but will keep you and your family healthier. Below is a list of some common uses for seven household products. Add some drops of essentials oils like lavender, rose, or sweet orange to any of them for extra pleasure!

Here are a few more tips to help you go green and save money!

  • Cut up old bath towels. Reuse these as rags for cleaning your house rather than paper towels, which are expensive and contribute to 3,000 pounds of waste in landfills each day.
  • When you grocery shop, leave your list at home. Instead, fill your basket with local, seasonal, and organic items that are on sale that week. Once you have your fruits and veggies, you can start to plan what other items you might need for the week.
  • Stock up on staples when they are on sale. Some ideas: look for jars of organic pasta sauce, condiments, and, frozen organic veggies or fruit.
  • Purchase things in bulk like quinoa, granola, beans, nuts, seeds, and dried herbs.
  • Cook up large pots of grains and beans then divvy them up smaller portions to freeze for later meals.. Staples that work well: quinoa, brown rice, black beans, and kidney beans.
  • Prep veggies on Sundays. You can wash, chop, blanch or steam them.
  • Invest in a high quality blender. This will allow you to make your own nut butters, almond milk, oat flour, soups, dips, and smoothies.  Choose one with at least a 5 year warranty.
  • Limit the amount of beauty products you use daily. Keep your routine simple!

Thank You to Cortney Harden and http://www.mindbodygreen.com for this post.

Individual actions  may not seems like much but when you add together multiple small actions they are greater than the sum of the parts.

I like to buy in bulk, it saves time and money plus expands your menu choices. I also like to cook larger quantities and freeze in smaller portions. This makes it quicker and easier to always be able to throw together a great meal at a moments notice. It also saves time and electricity.

When you create home care solutions, you know exactly what they contain, the same goes for meals prepared from scratch. You end up with cost-effective solutions that save money, time and cut the amount of toxins in your living space and your diet.

A really excellent investment is a compact deep freeze. The savings in time and money far outweigh the minimal amount the additional minor electrical costs.

Our son was very high level ADHD. Food additives as well as chemicals found around the home significantly affected both his behaviors and ability to learn. We saw significant improvement at home and at school by implementing these changes like those suggested in this post.****

****Reposters Note – Thank you to for this excellent post, 101 Uses for Coconut Oil.

Coconut Oil is one of those choices that is sure to benefit everyone who chooses to add it to their diets. Coincidentally,  it is as good for us externally as internally.

 What Kind of Coconut Oil?

For external uses, expeller pressed or other types of refined coconut oil will work, but for internal use, an unrefined virgin coconut oil is best. My husband and I both take about 4 tablespoons a day and the kids get a couple tablespoons in food, smoothies, or hot herbal tea.

5 Things You Can Do To Protect Yourself From Alzheimers

5 Things You Can Do To Protect Yourself From Alzheimers

 

People are often told that there is very little that can be done to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. A recent study has results to show that those with greater life purpose and some specific nutrition approaches can result in the maintenance of better cognitive ability.

By: PF Louis, NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) A study led by Dr. Patricia Boyle of Rush University Center in Chicago has concluded that people with greater life purpose maintained cognitive ability better than those who weren’t leading a purposeful life.

Dr. Boyle and her team wanted to establish a strategy for avoiding Alzheimer’s consequences rather than attempting to find a way of keeping brain plaques and tangles from accumulating.

After following 246 senior citizens — with up to ten years of annual cognitive exams and neurological testing — and quizzing them about life missions and then doing brain autopsies after their deaths, they reached a conclusion.

1 Life purpose/activity

As people age, they’re prone to getting brain plaques and tangles. But if they have a life purpose zestfully pursued, they avoid dementia despite those physical impairments.

There are many real life examples of people managing well as they keenly continue to pursue their life adventures, especially adventures that require mental focus and activity.

Many experts also agree that engaging in mental activities which are new or challenging as one ages also helps retain mental acuity. Walking briskly in nature a mile or so four days a week also helps maintain one’s cognitive abilities.

Four specific nutritional approaches

2 Coconut Oil

After failing to get her dementia addled husband into an Alzheimer drug trial because they were no longer accepting volunteers, Dr. Mary Newport discovered the active ingredient in the formula tested was a synthetic medium chain triglyceride(MCT).

Getting patent rights for big bucks requires the creation of synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs always produce side effects and their PR exceeds their efficacy.

Dr. Newport discovered that coconut oil contained natural MCT. Her husband had entered the darker side of dementia with his late stage Alzheimer’s. Yet after around a month and a half he was almost completely recovered after taking a tablespoon of coconut oil twice daily. Metabolizing MCTs produces ketones, which dissolve brain plaques and tangles.

An Australian shared his escape from early stage Alzheimer’s on YouTube using both coconut oil and niacin (B3), a supplement pioneered in orthomolecular psychiatry for many mental issues.

3 Vitamin D3 and Curcumin:

The synergy of combining curcumin with vitamin D3 to prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s is a recent development. Each substance alone has shown efficacy on dementia, so why wouldn’t combining the two create a powerful synergy?

This has been recently proven to be effective without side effects.

4 Eliminate aluminum

Avoid aluminum cooking utensils and underarm deodorants containing aluminum. Vaccines contain aluminum that goes right into your bloodstream. Aluminum bypasses the blood brain barrier and accumulates in soft tissue cells that regenerate less often than other tissues, creating plaque.

The brain is an organ that is made of cells that recycle more slowly than most other organ tissue cells. Silica is ideal for removing aluminum from soft tissue and eliminating through the urine. The herb horsetail contains a lot of silica and can be made into a tincture to provide constant silica dosing.

There are also supplements and mineral waters sold commercially that are high in silica.

5 Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha lipoic acid has demonstrated stopping the progression of dementia from early stage into late stage Alzheimer’s with a daily 600 mg dose.

ALA’s oxidative ability is coupled, reducing brain inflammation along with the some metal chelating activity for heavy metals, including lead and mercury.

Dietary advice includes reducing fructose of all types and eliminating processed simple carbs. Brain cells are cholesterol based. Reducing fats for any reason is not a good idea.

9 Foods That Make You Smarter

9 Foods That Make You Smarter

Eating well will not only give you the body you want, it is actually very important for your physical and mental health. The brain, just like any other organ, needs nutrients and minerals to keep the grey matter as healthy as possible. The following are some of the best foods you can provide your brain with.

81226f95d74c624a3e4edac514de887e

  • Wholegrains

They release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, keeping you mentally alert throughout the day, which promote the ability to concentrate and focus that comes from the adequate, steady supply of energy in our blood to the brain

  • Oily fish 

The most effective omega-3 fats occur naturally in oily fish as EPA and DHA, which are good for healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing.

  • Blueberries 

They improve or delay short term memory loss.

  • Tomatoes 

They are packed with lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that protects against the kind of free radical damage to cells which occurs in the development of dementia.

  • Pumpkin seeds 

They are packed with zinc, which are vital for enhancing memory and thinking skills.

  • Broccoli

They are a great source of vitamin K, which is known to enhance cognitive function and improve brainpower.

  • Sage

They have had a long reputation of improving the memory.

  • Nuts 

They are packed with vitamin E, which helps to prevent cognitive decline, particularly in the elderly.

This article from Positive Med is excellent – but it missed one food that has a very very positive impact on brain function. It is also easy to incorporate into any diet.

Coconut (My addition). Coconut Oil, Milk, and Meat are a powerhouse for our brains.

Study: Coconut oil improves cognitive ability

Just one dose of coconut oil can tremendously boost brain function and cognitive performance.

Thanks to the  for this information

You will see ***( I would use coconut oil, it is more nourishing for the skin and hair)

My investigations show that coconut oil is the one most nourishing of the oils and is absorbed by the body very easily. Our body temperature is warm enough to keep the oil liquid for easy absorption.

If you already have pure virgin olive oil or sunflower oil in your home – do use that rather than delaying trying the masks until you can purchase coconut oil.

If you are not yet using coconut oil search coconut oil, you will find numerous articles, posted on this blog .

Enjoy these wonderful masks!

***TO SEE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT APPROACH, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO CONTINUE READING***

My personal favorite solution for removing dead skin cells, reducing lines and wrinkles, detoxification and oxygenation of the skin is a total body solution. As we age not only does aging show on our face but all of our skin.

Natural ultrasound  is used to clean our precious jewelry and keep it looking it’s best  Natural Ultrasound does the same for the skin and the underlying connective tissue by massaging and stimulating at a cellular level as well deep cleaning the skin surface and pores. Detoxifying, rehydrating,  massaging and oxygenating our skin while providing improved circulation plumps up the skin naturally. The enhanced circulation/oxygenation and the deep pore cleansing give the skin that dewy youthful glow.

I was introduced to the Oxygen Spa as a wellness tool, only to find out that in Asia it is a very popular spa treatment used to return youthfulness to the skin or to maintain a youthful appearance. After having an extremely rejuvenating experience during my first Oxygen Spa Session, I decided to attend a hydrotherapy conference in Taiwan to  learn more from doctors and hydrotherapy experts.

The Oxygen Spa  is basically like having a mini physiotherapy unit at your disposal in your own home. All you need is a bath tub and water. It provides full body Hydrotherapy that incorporates Hydro-massage, Hydro-accupressure, Hydro-ultrasound, Far-infrared Oxygen & Ozone therapy and full body Detoxification. It also creates internal warming so provides cardiovascular exercise benefits too. Many people notice decreases in cellulite and improved over all body toning.

The Oxygen Spa is also the best stress reduction tool – just imagine millions of oxygen bubbles massaging all of the stress away. It is such an exquisite experience with the added benefit of not having to lose that super relaxed feeling by getting dressed and having to go back out into the world.

The Hydrotherapy Conference attendees appeared to be a rather youthful group both in appearance but also in movement which surprised me. As we age, that suppleness of movement we see in the young slowly dissipates unless we pursue a consistent total body exercise regimen like yoga.  During the hydrotherapy training  by leading doctors and hydrotherapy experts, they provided insight about why the Oxygen Spa had been adopted as a very significant tool in rehab facilities and even in emergency rooms such as Taipei Hospital.

Soon the Spa industry in Asia caught on. Numerous health issues were being successfully addressed but along with feeling better, Oxygen Spa users were noticeably looking and feeling more youthful – an unanticipated side-effect.

At the conference, I was befriended by 3 young Asian Americans who were Oxygen Spa devotees. I was later shocked to find out all 3 ladies had children who were in their late 20s and early 30s and my new friends were 49 – 54 years old.  But they were not alone, I met women and  men not only from Asia but from Europe, Middle East, Philippines, Africa and Australia who were using the Oxygen Spa as their fountain of youth and vibrancy. That they were also experiencing unparalleled good health as a by-product.

They were of the opinion that when you feel good, you look your best, and when you look your best, you feel good. They had all been introduced to the Oxygen Spa years earlier in its infancy and enjoyed using it so much over time they had been able to stay looking and feeling much younger than their peers.

So what is this Oxygen Spa  – Watch the video below and if you want to learn even more check out homespaedmonton.com. My name is Deb St.Jean  and should you want to contact me – you can do so via the contact form, or the comments section of this blog. (My apologies – the website is a bit out of date and is in the middle of being revamped)

I was an adult acne sufferer with horrible skin showing the wear and tear of aging and 20+ years of severe adult acne. Due to a very physically active life, I had 3 crushed vertebra, carpal tunnel, rotator cuff, hip, knee and ankle injuries. The Oxygen Spa provided amazing pain relief and gave me back a flexibility I had not experienced since crushing my vertebra in my teens.

Not long after I bought my Oxygen Spa and was able to use it consistently, long time friends and co-workers started complimenting ME – on how great MY skin looked. I have been blemish free for over 5 years now and often have people who meet compliment me on my skin. These compliments still take me by surprise as most of my life I had skin that had to be buried under layers and layers of make-up to cover the acne and the scaring. Now, in my late 50’s, I wear NO MAKE-UP and GET COMPLIMENTS ON MY GREAT SKIN.

I ordered my Oxygen Spa for the pain reduction and improved flexibility – I had no idea that it would do wonders for my skin, my energy levels or give the overall sense of wellness I experience today. Watch the video, and incorporate some of what the Oxygen Spa provides to enhance the benefits of the masks detailed earlier in this post. If you want the real thing, the Oxygen Spa contact me and I will help make that happen for you.

I freely admit, I am addicted to my Oxygen Spa and will never be without it for the rest of my life. It is as important to me as the air I breathe, the water I drink and the food I eat.  I dreaded aging, yet comparatively, I now feel and look better than anything I could have anticipated 10 years ago.

The Essential Oils and the Mineral Salts enhance the effectiveness and the experience. They are integral to obtaining the fullest benefit that the Oxygen Spa can bestow. Aroma and Essential oil/Mineral salt therapy have long been used with hydrotherapy as they complement and enhance the effectiveness of each other, beyond what either could do alone.

The Oxygen Spa is my passion so my apologies for being so long-winded ( you will note if you look at my other posts this is not typical) but the change the Oxygen Spa has brought to my skin and my life is so huge I wish I could give every home one.

Here is that promised video.
