A report revealed coffee could potentially reduce the risk of developing neurodegenerative conditions or relieve some symptoms.

The results support past studies that found coffee protects the neurological system, reduces cognitive decline and improves insulin sensitivity.

Coffee crops are heavily sprayed with pesticides, so seek out organic selections; consider grinding it at home and drinking it without sugar.

Love Good Fats....

As I was walking through Sprouts grocery, they were handing out samples of this new bar called "love good fats". It is a line of keto friendly bars (5 grams of net carbs) and shakes.

I tried the peanut butter chocolatey.... the taste was ok but I am not a super fan of the consistency. It felt lighter than a 3 Musketeers, so it literally can melt in your mouth. It is a great choice for keto, but for 8 grams of net carbs, I much prefer Autumns Gold grain free granola bars.
