Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a great ketogenic recipe for an individual that wants some great tasting veggies and stay in ketosis. These green beans are loaded with good fats in the pastured butter and the virgin coconut oil. The Italian herbs provide great flavor, aroma and anti-oxidants.
We added kelp which is a sea vegetable that provides more blood cleansing chlorophyll and thyroid supporting iodine. Kelp also has a nice salty style flavor and therefore you need a bit less salt. I get my organic herbs in bulk through Mountain Rose Herbs which is a wonderful company that provides fully pure herbs at a great price.
Getting organic stock, particularly when you make your own from the stock bones, is like a super multi-vitamin. Organic, pastured chicken stock or grass-fed beef stock provide tons of glycine, magnesium, gelatin and collagen to support the gut, skin and joint health.
