Product of the Month

Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays a critical role in your bone health by facilitating the transport of calcium from the bloodstream into the bones.

Without enough vitamin K2, calcium in the blood does not adequately bind to bone and instead infiltrates into the arterial wall, resulting in calcification, or arteriosclerosis.  Adequate amounts of K2 will simultaneously improve bone health and heart health by directing calcium to its proper spot in your bones!

Vitamin K2 is found in meat, organ meats, eggs and dairy products and is also made by bacteria in our digestive tract. Dietary vitamin K2 is found almost exclusively in the MK-4 version, which has a very short half-life in the body, approximately 6 hours. To supplement your diet, improve bone and cardiovascular health, or to speed healing from a fracture we suggest the MK-7 form of K2, which stays in the body up to 6x longer than MK-4.

Vitamin D3 has become a very popular supplement for bone health. Did you know that vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 work synergistically to improve bone health? In fact high doses of vitamin D3 actually depletes you K2 levels leading to continued bone loss. If you are taking vitamin D3 through the winter be sure to also supplement vitamin K2.

Recent research has also shown vitamin K2 to be very important in the healing of neuropathy as well as improved endurance in athletes.

The quality of your K2 supplement is very important. There are poor quality K2 products being produced in China and Italy that are flooding the market. We only recommend MennaquinGold Vitamin K2 since it is the only pharmaceutical grade vitamin k2 in the marketplace.

Coconut Pancakes

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients and let sit for five minutes. Add more coconut milk if you find batter is too thick.
  2. Add coconut oil or butter to a pan and heat over medium heat.
  3. Pour about 1 cup of batter for each pancake, allowing each side to brown before flipping it. Serves 2-4.

If you want some healthy and delicious additions to your pancakes, add a few blueberries, bananas, crushed pecans, or walnut pieces immediately after pouring the batter in the pan.

Instead of using all coconut flour, you can also experiment with using half coconut flour and half almond flour, which, in my opinion, makes a very balanced flavor.

Food For Thought!

Did you know that Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed and stored differently than water- soluble vitamins? Fat- soluble nutrients are best absorbed when taken with a meal providing healthy fats. Healthy fats support brain health, hormone health and much more. Some of the “good for you” fats are grass-fed butter, coconut oil, avocadoes, nuts, seeds, olives, olive oil and fish.

Remember this health tip next time when you take your vitamins A, D, E or K!

 

 

 

 

 


Avocado Breakfast Bowls

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice the avocados in half, and take out the pit. Scoop out about two tablespoons of flesh from the center of the avocado, just enough so the egg will fit snugly in the center.
  3. Place the avocados in a small baking dish. Do your best to make sure they fit tightly.
  4. Crack an egg into each avocado half. Try your best to crack the yolk in first, then let the egg whites spill in to fill up the rest of the shell.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocados. Just make sure the egg whites have enough time to set.
  6. Remove from oven, then season with pepper, chives, and garnish of your choice.

Enjoy!


Breakfast Egg Muffins

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 6 or 7 muffin cups with nonstick spray.
  2. After you cook the sausage, scoop it into a paper towel-lined bowl to drain and cool, then wipe out the pan with a paper towel. Quickly cook the spinach in the same pan, just until wilted. Let it cool, then squeeze any excess moisture out of it.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cooled sausage and spinach with the eggs and milk. Scoop into the prepared muffin tins (I find it easiest to use a 1/3 cup measuring cup) almost to the top. Sprinkle cheese on top. Then give each one a good dose of salt and pepper.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until egg is cooked through. Easy way to check the egg: touch the middle of the muffins... if they are still wet and gooey, they'll need a little more time in the oven. They should feel cooked through.
  5. Serve egg muffins immediately- with salsa, if desired.

TIPS:

*Egg muffins are pretty versatile- sub in other ingredients for the sausage and spinach, if you prefer.
