Dr Jockers Comments
This is a super tasty recipe that is ketogenic in nature in that it is low-carb and rich in good healthy fats. You won’t need many of these and they will satisfy you and help cut cravings.
Coconut fats are one of the most anti-inflammatory foods you can put in your body and they taste great! Stevia is 100 times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on your blood sugar.
This is perfect for anyone dealing with chronic disease that wants to keep their blood sugar stable and reduce inflammation. Your whole family will absolutely LOVE this!
