Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a very healthy cream sauce you can use as a nice dip for veggies or with other recipes. I recommend a ketogenic diet that is based around getting 60-80% of total calorie count from healthy fats. This is a perfect type of recipe to get highly nutrient dense, easily digestible fatty acids.
Coconut oil is loaded with healthy medium-chain triglycerides (MCT’s) that enhance our metabolism and provide a healthy fuel source for our brain. The pastured butter is rich in carotenoid anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Coconut flour is a really good low-carb fiber source that thickens this recipe up.
I have modified the original recipe to add in some of my favorite herbs that I thoroughly enjoy in a creamy recipe. The addition of oregano, garlic and dill make this have a really nice aroma and sensational taste.
