Coconut Milk: High in calories and saturated fats called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that help to reduce appetite, increase metabolism, and aid in belly fat loss.
Hemp Seeds: Brain Food! Hemp Seeds are one of the best plant-based sources for protein, they contain the antioxidants, and omega fats to support brain health. They also have the optimal ratio of Omega 6’s to Omega 3’s — 2:1.
Avocados: Best fruit on the planet – LOADED with healthy fats and fibre! One whole avocado has double the amount of potassium as a single banana.
Monk Fruit Sweetener: Is an extract derived from dried monk fruit that is up to 250 times sweeter than table sugar, has zero calories and carbs, and does not raise blood glucose levels.
Strawberries: Packed with vitamins, fibre, and high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, they are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a reliable source of manganese and potassium. About 8 strawberries provides more vitamin C than an orange.
