Phase 1, Day 14 of The Maker’s Diet

The Maker''s Diet: The 40-Day Health Experience That Will Change Your Life ForeverIt’s Day 14, Phase 1 of The Maker’s Diet.

Today is the last day of Phase 1 of The Maker’s Diet.

For breakfast, Kenney made “Edwards McMuffins” and instead of using the ham they use, we used turkey bacon. Add a medium fried egg and a whole wheat English muffin and voilà! A tastier, low-cal, Maker’s Diet approved McMuffin.

For lunch, we had that amazing coconut chicken soup that is always sure to please. Kenney made extra today, as we were especially hungry for some reason. We definitely filled the gap!

For dinner, we weren’t quite as hungry, as we had our fill with lunch and ate it a little bit later than usual.

So, we’ll probably just have a healthy snack of fruit or vegetables with almond butter or something like that.

We did “waiver” a bit today – Kenney made me a chai latté…the only thing we wavered on was the cow’s milk, instead of goat’s milk. We’ve been doing so good adhering to the “rules” and treated ourselves. Oops!

What Have I Loved So Far About The Maker’s Diet?
The fabulous flavors, especially the coconut! We get to cook with a lot of coconut oil, coconut milk and creamed coconut, which we always did, but it’s especially lovely with the recipes we’re trying to follow. I mean, YUM!

For those of you who aren’t sure, coconut oil is solid at room temperature, but is often sold in the refrigerated section of health food stores. Be sure to buy extra virgin coconut oil.

P.S. Can’t find coconut oil? GEt the Garden of Life brand here:

Coconut Oil Extra Virgin, 16 fl oz. From Garden of Life Coconut Oil Extra Virgin, 16 fl oz. From Garden of Life

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is the healthiest, most versatile unprocessed dietary oil in the world. Made from organically grown coconuts, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is an excellent cooking oil. With its natural coconut flavor and aroma, we think it is simply the best tasting, most aromatic coconut oil on the planet. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids. It contains medium-chain fatty acids such as lauric and mystic acids, that have shorter chain lengths than most animal derived long-chain saturated fatty acids. Consumption of coconut oil at recommended levels, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, helps maintain already healthy levels of cholesterol. Unlike refined coconut oils, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the healthiest and most versatile unprocessed dietary oils in the world. Once thought to be a “bad” fat, coconut oil has been proven to be a stable, healthy saturated fat that can help maintain cholesterol levels, support thyroid function, ease occasional digestive disorder symptoms, avert sugar cravings and provide many other health benefits. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil contains lauric acid (50-55% capric and caprylic acid.) the kind found in mother’s milk along with other medium-chain fatty acids. These super fatty acids are quickly metabolized and converted to energy in the body, rather than being stored as fat. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is made with only the freshest, organically grown coconuts. Return to the purity of the world’s healthiest oil with Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. HEALTH BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL Coconut oil has been used as a cooking oil for thousands of years, and is still a staple in the diets of many people living in tropical areas today. It was once popular here in the United States as well, until shortages of imported oils during WW II created the need to promote local oils like soybean and corn oil. Soon, polyunsaturated fats became the norm in this country; and with it came a rise in obesity, higher cholesterol levels, and degenerative diseases related to aging. Coconut oil has been shown to reduce the symptoms of digestive disorders, support overall immune functions, and to help prevent bacterial, viral and fungal infections. People who consistently use coconut oil, report changes in their ability to go without eating for several hours without experiencing the effects of hypoglycemia. A study conducted in Yucatan where coconut oil is a staple, showed that metabolic rates of people living there were 25% higher than in comparable test subjects living in the United States. Increased metabolic rate is a key to healthy weight management and could account for the leanness of people living in areas where coconut oil is consumed on a daily basis.

Hello! Yes, coconut oil is THE ideal cooking oil. That’s because coconut oil is 92% saturated, which makes it highly resistant to oxidation and free radical formation.

Coconut oil is The Healthiest Oil on Earth. Did you know that coconut oil can kill the HIV virus (AIDS)? There’s so much more coconut oil can do for our optimal health.

I absolutely love to use coconut oil for cooking.

Not only does it impart an awesome flavor, but it holds under high temperatures so you can pan fry on high heat or even deep fry food…

Delicious!
