How is Healthy?
This recipe contains a number of key healthy ingredients. The spices alone offer a lot of antioxidants to fight off those free radicals bouncing around that can cause cancer. Spices are also fantastic for your immune system. The coconut oil is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) which improve the update of T3 a hormone. If you are interested increasing your metabolism T3 is your friend. They are the ones responsible for increasing it along with regulating your energy levels and HR. So when the old school train of thought that having fat was bad, coconut oil clearly proves that myth wrong.
