The Best Coffee:

Every morning over 100 million Americans wake up and indulge in their favorite drink: coffee.  And according to a six-country survey… most people would rather give up SEX than give up their daily coffee fix. We know. Nuts eh? #SMH

The good news is that coffee is actually very healthy when you get it from a reliable source. The scientific peer reviewed studies cannot be denied…Coffee can improve your energy levels, make you smarter, help you burn more fat, improve exercise performance, and lower your risk of type II diabetes.

Now for the BAD NEWS: there is a DARK side to coffee (sorry, couldn’t help the pun)…Coffee is actually the most heavily chemically-sprayed crop on the planet…

Even if you’re buying organic or high end Kona Beans there is a sinister kind of poison lurking inside your coffee. Thankfully, we have found an amazing coffee that’s grown, washed, dried, and roasted in a very specific way to achieve all the health benefits listed above.

We’ve set up a private website for you to learn more about this coffee we love so much so you can start experiencing all the amazing health benefits.  ==> This is truly the most delicious and healthy coffee you’ll ever drink.

Dr Jockers Comments:

For years people have been asking me how to prepare a grain-free, sugar free carrot cake.  This recipe is exactly that with fat burning, nutrient dense ingredients that keep it low carb and give it plenty of delicious flavor!  You will LOVE this!

This is a grain-free recipe that is loaded with superfoods and powerful fatty acids.  Coconut is loaded with small and medium chain saturated fats that metabolize quickly and boost brain function and enhance gut health.  Organic eggs provide clean protein and cinnamon and organic carrots provide antioxidants.  Enjoy!

  1. I made this , was very good. do you have any suggestion’s on how to make the frosting without the beyond organics stuff? I used organic cream cheese and added goats milk kefir but was wondering if there was another way. looking into getting some stuff from beyond organics but not yet.
    Also mine turned out very thin. using your ingredients for the cake, any thoughts?

  2. I made this tonight and it tastes fabulous! I didn’t have raisins so I added raw sliced almonds. I used organic butter. And it took more than 30 minutes at 350. LOVE IT! Thanks for posting…

  3. When you post these recipes, it would be so wonderful if you included the serving size, calories and macro nutrient profiles.

    1. To those of us who create recipes, it takes a lot of trial and error to do so. Calculating the nutritional profile for every recipe would take even longer. The web sites exist for you to do this calculation yourself if you are interested. I am happy that the recipes are posted for free!

  4. Dr. Jockers, I love your recipes and all your great information you share with us. Can we pin your recipes??? I don’t see anything for Pinterest. Maybe I am missing it.

    Blessings Annette

    1. I Pin Dr. Jockers recipes all the time. You can click on the P above the picture of the item you are needing to Pin. Also, hover over the picture of the item and a small red sign that says Pin and click on that. It is usually in the left-hand upper corner of the picture of the item wanting to be pinned. Hope this helps.

    2. Adding to what I had already posted. I find that clicking on the P above the picture works the best. Sometimes hovering and clicking on the red sign (P. Save) will not work as well.

    1. For sure Margaret, it is not as absorbent so you may have to play with the liquid ingredient amounts to get the right consistency. You will likely need slightly less.

  5. Any ideas on how to make this without using eggs?… baking soda and “flax egg”? I am a terrible baker, but Gf, df, grain-free, egg-free carrot cake just sounds so good right now!!!!
