Keto Fat Bomb: Low Carb Recipe with Coconut Oil: Thomas DeLauer

Coconut Oil

The dominant fatty acid in coconut oil, on the other hand, is lauric acid, which comprises about 50% of the total fat content – when lauric acid is digested it converts to monolaurin

Coconut oil also contains a very nominal amount of Caproic Acid (C6), about 6% Caprylic Acid (C8) and about 10% Capric Acid (C10).

Sunflower Seed Butter – Magnesium and Vitamin E

Cacao

Raw cacao is the purest form of chocolate you can consume and is different from the common Cocoa

Normal cocoa powder and chocolate have been chemically processed and roasted, which destroys a large amount of the antioxidants and flavanols

Benefits

Weight Loss

Cocoa can help boost your weight loss results in a number of ways. First, it helps stimulate serotonin production in the brain

This chemical regulates your mood and helps suppress your appetite, which means you’ll consume less – naturally low in calories, with 90 per serving.

Better your mood

Raw cocoa powder is also known to be a natural mood enhancer. It contains both anandamide and phenylethylamine, both of which induce euphoria, act as an aphrodisiac and boost overall mood.

Antioxidants

Raw cacao powder contains more than 300 different chemical compounds and nearly four times the antioxidant power of your average dark chocolate – more than 20 times than that of blueberries.

Protein, calcium, carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids are also present.

Chia Seeds

When cooked chia seeds form a gel-like consistency that helps keep ingredients together – Chia gel is simply a mix of chia seeds and water

Approximately 75% of the fats found in chia seeds include the omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA),

Chia seeds can actually make you feel happier because of the amino acid tryptophan found in them

Caffeic acid: Many plant foods are rich in this substance. Caffeic acid is also a good means of fighting inflammation in the body

Kaempferol: Another antioxidant found in chia seeds, which brings the benefits of the reduced risk of cancer and other chronic diseases

Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts contain selenium, which have many health benefits and also help to boost T levels

Brazil nuts have health benefits for the thyroid, an important gland that regulates, produces, and distributes some of the most important hormones in our body.
