Fat Burning Vegetable Casserole
Yield 8 slices
8 oz. chopped spinach
8 oz. steamed broccoli
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1/2 diced red onion
2 cups of coconut milk
1 cup organic, free range chicken stock
1 tbsp. coconut flour
8 oz. grated grass-fed cheddar cheese
3 beaten pasture-raised eggs
1 tsp. garlic powder
Pink salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of parsley to garnish
Step #1: Steam spinach and broccoli until wilted.
Step #2: In a saute pan, saute onion in coconut oil until translucent.
Step #3: Add coconut flour and sauté for another minute under med-low heat. Let it cool down.
Step #4: Combine eggs and cheese with coconut milk.
Step #6: Put coconut oil on a baking pan and start the layering. First the spinach and broccoli then a layer of the coconut milk mixture... repeat until you run out of ingredients or fill the dish. If you are using the gluten-free pie crust, you would just layer inside of that.
Step #7: Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes and then let cool.

Dr Jockers Comments:
This is an amazing recipe that combines phytonutrient rich veggies such as spinach and broccoli with good fats and proteins. The array of powerful brain-boosting nutrients is vast in this recipe with pastured eggs, grass-fed raw cheese and coconut oil.
Bone broth is extremely rich in nutrients such as gelatin that improve gut function and immunity. It is best to make your own bone broth from pastured chicken bones or grass-fed beef bones. You will be able to extract significantly more nutrition out of these bones than if you were to use a store bought organic broth.
The recipe image shows a gluten-free pie crust, but you don’t necessarily need this. You can this without any sort of pie crust if you are keeping your carbs down and it is fantastic!!
