Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a great way to start the day! Having good fats for breakfast helps to stabilize your cortisol levels to reduce the risk of adrenal hyperfunction and improve your mood and energy levels.
I recommend flavoring it with stevia so as to keep this sugar-free. If you are sensitive to eggs than I would recommend adding in 2 additional tbsps. of butter/ghee or coconut oil. You could also add in coconut cream.
To make the coconut cream, simply take a can of organic full-fat coconut milk and turn it upside down in your refrigerator and leave over night. Open it up in the morning and pour out the water on the top and you have concentrated coconut cream on the bottom. Take 2 large tbsps. of that and use it. Enjoy!
