Why More Fat is GOOD for Your Health!
Please read this article that gives a synopsis about why our dietary guidelines are all wrong! Our bodies were meant to consume fat, and as a species, we have for 99.999999 percent of our existence on Earth. It wasn’t until the 1950’s that Ancel Keys came into the picture and changed everything about the US diet based on false science and a huge ego! We hope you find this educational and as interesting as we do!
Here are some good ways to begin your day with great fats to start you off with loads of ENERGY!!!!!
Drink your Bulletproof Coffee!
Quality Coffee or Tea (Chai and English Breakfast are good) of Your Choice
Add in to your taste:
1 or 2 TBSP Grass-fed Butter
1 TBSP Coconut oil (or more – We use 2 to 3 TBSP)
Stevia drops (So many flavors – I like Vanilla)
Heavy Whipping Cream
Use a milk-frother to mix it VERY well!
If you still see oil on the top, mix it some more!
There are so many options!
Play with it a little at a time and you will get it just the way you like it!
It will give you an immediate burst of energy to send you out the door.
For those in your family that don’t drink tea or coffee, (i.e. your children) this is a great breakfast. We do a lot of scrambled eggs (Pasture Raised), poached eggs, fried eggs, boiled eggs, and egg casseroles made with breakfast sausage and cream. You can even do crustless quiches, omelets, and frittatas. The kids love the sustained energy it gives them until lunch. You can also mix up your breakfast meats with bacon, sausage, chorizo, ham, Canadian bacon, etc. And don’t forget the cheese and homemade salsa for some extra zing!
Did you know eggs are one of the most ideal and perfect foods we have been given?
Along with whole milk, eggs contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids.
The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults. And brain development and memory may be enhanced by the choline content of eggs.
Proven Health Benefits of Eggs:
They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.
The health benefits of eggs have been confirmed in human studies.
Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.
A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.
A single large boiled egg contains:
Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
Folate: 5% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.
Eat your eggs! The AHA revised their guidelines for eggs back in 2000, so eat up!
