Dr Jockers Comments
This kale coconut dressing salad is a fantastic vegan, micronutrient dense keto recipe that tastes outstanding. This recipe is full of healthy fats that provide satiety and help us to burn fat for fuel.
It is best to soften the kale with the olive oil and salt to make it more tender and easier on the digestive system. You could also do this with the red cabbage and the brussel sprouts if you have trouble digesting these raw as well.
I enjoy the sprouted pumpkin seeds which are a great source of zinc, B vitamins, magnesium and other trace minerals. Coconut fats are the major calorie source in this recipe and they provide healthy medium chain fats that are easy on the digestive system and help our body to stabilize blood sugar and produce ketones.
Our Cancer Cleanse program features a plant-based, ketogenic diet that is high in healthy fats, fiber and micronutrients while being low in protein and carbohydrates. This is a great recipe to put into action to stabilize your blood sugar and reduce your risk of developing cancer.
