Top 4 Health Benefits of This Recipe:
As if you needed 4 more reasons to indulge in this recipe, here are a few health benefits you'll enjoy when you try these chocolate coconut fat bombs:
- Ginger is packed with antioxidants and helps fight inflammation: Ginger is an ancient herb that's been used in medicine to treat colds, flus, and ailments like arthritis for thousands of years [*]. It is full of powerful antioxidants called gingerols that reduce oxidative stress in the body, which helps you stay healthy and free of disease [*]. Ginger also helps reduce inflammation, which has been shown to reduce your risk of certain diseases such as colon, gastric, and kidney cancer [*].
- KetoLogic® Chocolate KetoMeal® contains the nutrients you need to stay low carb: Meal replacement drinks often miss the mark, but Chocolate KetoMeal helps cover all your bases while providing a hefty dose of nutrients. It's loaded with more than 12 essential vitamins and minerals, as well as healthy fats, protein, and fiber. Plus, it's free from gluten, soy, and carrageenan.
- Coconut contains MCT oil: Coconut is one of the richest sources of medium-chain triglycerides found in natural foods [*]. The coconut oil and flakes in these fat bombs help keep your brain fueled with energy (MCTs have been shown to provide immediate energy for your brain compared to other fats), and can also enhance ketosis [*].
- Walnuts are full of healthy fats: Speaking of healthy fats, walnuts are packed with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, both of which are good for heart health [*]. In general, though, nuts are considered a powerhouse as far as nutrients go. They're full of essential B vitamins, minerals like calcium and magnesium, protein, and fiber [*].
