MCT Oil Powder
Fat has gotten a bad reputation. Historically the public has been led to believe that fat is harmful, but many types of fat including MCT also called medium chain triglyceride, can be incredibly beneficial. The first thing most people notice when they take MCT oil for the first time is that it’s just easier to think clearly and brain fog seems to disappear. It’s because your brain is mostly made up of fat which means you need to eat healthy fats to think clearly, feel at your best, and stay sharp well into old age.
Greek yogurt comes from regular yogurt that has been strained to remove excess material. What’s left is a rich and creamy, tart taste with less sugar and more protein than normal yogurt. Greek yogurt also contains probiotics, the healthy bacteria that boost your gut health. As a result, Greek yogurt is a filling and delicious snack that mixes well with a variety of foods.
Peanuts are loved for their unique taste and ability to be ground into creamy peanut butter. They are rich sources of energy containing several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Just make sure you don’t have a nut allergy. If you do, find a substitution you can enjoy on our list below.
Dark chocolate is made from cacao. Cacao has been called the food of the gods for good reason. It’s very nutritious, a powerful source of antioxidants, and boosts cognitive functioning. The mood elevating properties of cacao are the primary reason for the love of chocolate all around the world. When you eat it, you just feel good. We all need more things in life that make us feel good.
Optional (Mixed Fruit)
I like adding whatever fruit I have on hand to top my yogurt. It adds a color and important phytonutrients. Use whatever fruit is in the current season for the freshest taste.
