Here’s Why You’ll Love These Tasty Protein Bars

Inside every bite is a nutritious mix of high quality ingredients packed with protein from grass-fed whey and collagen peptides, MCTs, prebiotics from acacia fiber, and nuts. These ingredients work synergistically to support your keto snack cravings while on-the-go, at work, in between meals, or to recover after your workouts.

Ketone Fuel On-The-Go
One bite of BochaBars provides coconut MCTs to provide the support to maintain energy, focus, and optimal performance.

This is a saturated fatty acid derived from coconut oil which forms together to make medium-chain fatty acids. This is a unique energy source, as it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream and then transported directly to your liver to convert into ketones.

The smaller carbon size (composed of C8, C10, C12 groups) is a defining reason why MCT oil requires less work by the pancreas to break down compared to long-chain fatty acids.

There are multiple studies done on athletes ingesting MCTs to increase duration of high intensity exercise.

Quality fats featuring organic coconut oil and almonds are added to keep you full and satiated.

Grass-Fed Protein Blend
Our unique protein blend contains grass-fed whey and collagen peptides. The BCAA’s naturally present in protein provide protein synthesis to help build muscle and recover from exercise. Collagen peptides contain the amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline.

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body which means it makes up an impressive 80 percent of your skin. Which means it plays a role in improving skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles, and boosting skin hydration.

After the age of 25, collagen production breaks down at a faster rate than what we can make. Thus, collagen has anti-aging benefits and can significantly reduce joint pain. Collagen is a great protein source to consume before or after a workout.

Sweetened with 100% Kabocha Extract
Our BochaBars are sweetened with 100% kabocha extract for an indulgent taste without any of the bitter. This zero calorie and zero glycemic sugar replacement is extracted from the kabocha pumpkin. Kabocha extract is metabolized in the body as a pure source of energy without the requirement of insulin. The kabocha is the best source for an alternative sweetener due to its potent pentose content, monasaccharide with a 5-carbon atom structure, which has a sweet taste just like sugar.

Real Food Ingredients
BochaBars are made with your health in mind which means the highest quality ingredients are a must. These bars contain nuts, healthy fats, almond flour, prebiotics, MCTs, and grass-fed protein to make sure you are getting the best nutrition in every bite. They are gluten free, GMO free, and contain no artificial flavors.

BochaBars Come in Two Flavors

BochaBars come in two great tasting flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Vanilla Almond Crunch.  You will not find any cheap ingredients, artificial flavors, and other fillers that negatively affect your health. The clean, high quality ingredients in BochaBars were formulated with your health in mind.

So, go ahead and take advantage of our new offer and take your BochaBar fun to the next level!

BOCHA-BEETS MOBILE SLIDER FITNESS GIRL

You have heard the ads on the radio and TV raving about beets and how beetroot powder helps with nitric oxide production by supporting healthy circulation and blood pressure. If you tried beetroot powder you have realized firsthand that this powerful extract definitely works, but you may have been put off by the bitter aftertaste you get with our competitors’ beet supplements sweetened with stevia.

Our own upgraded beetroot formulation gets the same high quality GMO FREE all-natural beetroot powder found in other products. But to take things to the next level, it is sweetened with our great tasting keto-friendly sugar replacement, BochaSweet.

Our specially formulated Bocha-Beets has everything you could ever want in a beet powder mix, especially as a pre-workout supplement.

This is why we created Bocha-Beets!

A stimulant-free beetroot supplement that is sweetened with 100% kabocha extract. The best tasting keto-friendly sugar replacement on the market! No more chugging down beet powders that leave an unpleasant artificial taste! Or that has added flavorings which taste like cough syrup!

Bocha-Beets was created with your health in mind and contains ingredients that helps to support a healthy cardiovascular system.

  • Non-GMO Beetroot Extract
  • Citrulline Malate
  • Betaine Anhydrous
  • Branched Chain Amino Acids
  • L-Arginine
  • Vitamin B6/B12
  • Electrolytes (magnesium, sodium, and potassium)

Non-GMO Beetroot Extract

In our Bocha-Beets formula we made sure to source a high quality GMO free, organic beetroot powder that has a high nitrate content. Beetroot has been increasing in popularity in recent studies due to its claims that it can improve athletic performance, support healthy blood pressure, and increase blood flow.

The abundance of dietary nitrates found in beets convert intro nitric oxide in the body. The purpose of nitric oxide is to help relax and dilate the blood vessels.

Citrulline Malate

The amino acid L-citrulline is included to help with endurance and delaying the onset of fatigue during exercise. This amino acid is popular in pre-workout formulations and helps to assist further with blood and nitric oxide production in the body.

When it comes to your workouts, citrulline can help you perform more reps and reduce post-workout muscle soreness.

Betaine Anhydrous

Betaine is found in beets and is a powerful bioactive compound that helps to support a healthy heart and regulates homocysteine levels in the body.

Branched Chain Amino Acids

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are added into Bocha-Beets for muscle growth by promoting protein synthesis. These branched chain amino acids are composed of leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

L-Arginine

The amino acid L-arginine creates nitric oxide and relaxes the blood vessels. The body converts L-citrulline into L-arginine; therefore, adding L-arginine into Bocha-Beets helps to support healthy circulation.

Vitamins B6/B12

Vitamin B6, known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that your body utilizes for creating neurotransmitters and regulating homocysteine levels.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the world’s leading nutrient deficiencies. Adding B12 to Bocha-Beets provides benefits to the central nervous system.

Electrolytes

The electrolytes added into the formulation is magnesium, potassium, and sodium. By including these electrolytes into Bocha-Beets, you can prevent the drop in performance during exercise that comes about from low mineral levels.

Summary – Bocha-Beets Nitric Oxide Booster

Bocha-Beets is a stimulant-free beetroot supplement that is sweetened with 100% kabocha extract. The best tasting keto-friendly sugar replacement on the market!

Simply purchase a 10.6 oz jar of Bocha-Beets and you will automatically receive a FREE 1 Lb pouch of BochaSweet with your order.

Collagen Peptides
, ,

Protein is a “buzzword” that is often emphasized when it comes to feeling satiety on a diet. Especially the keto diet which is now a hot trend among health advocates. A keto diet focuses on higher amounts of protein and fats with considerably less carbs. That said protein is very important for optimal health. There is a protein source that can help keep you looking young, and that is collagen.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body. It makes up an impressive 80 percent of your skin which means it improves skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles, and boosts skin hydration. It also helps give you healthy, strong hair and strengthens your bones. Collagen is also rich in three amino acids that are deficient in today’s standard diets. The amino acids are glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. There is so many benefits to consuming collagen that it’s no wonder it has become such a popular protein source.

Collagen’s Role in Anti-Aging

As we age, our collagen production tends to naturally decline. This means we start to show wrinkles and fine lines. After the age of 25 collagen breaks down at a faster rate than what we can make. To keep collagen production up,  it would be wise to add more collagen into your diet either by supplementation or regularly consuming foods like bone broth or organ meats. For many people simply adding a scoop of collagen protein into your coffee, smoothie, or water can help you receive many benefits from this wonderful protein.

When it comes to improving skin elasticity, collagen is something you want to be consuming to help combat the effects of aging.

Collagen for Stronger Joints

Keeping our joints healthy is important for our overall quality of life. Collagen helps to strengthen your joints and can even significantly reduce joint pain. The reason for this is simple. Collagen acts as a cushion to your joints to prevent friction between the connecting bones. Since you start to break down collagen at a faster rate when you age it makes sense to increase your consumption of collagen to help keep your joints healthy.

For those living an active lifestyle, collagen is a great protein source that can be consumed before or after a workout for recovery. The amino acid glycine found in collagen may help with adding lean muscle mass.

If you are looking for a quick and convenient source of collagen to supplement your diet, then you should definitely check out our BochaBars. These delicious, keto-friendly protein bars contain grass fed collagen peptides and other real food ingredients designed to fit into your lifestyle needs.

Collagen is Good for Keto

The idea behind the keto diet is to be very low carb with a high amount of fat. The amount of protein you need to consume on keto is not so straightforward. The general rule of thumb for sedentary adults is to consume at least 0.8 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass. If you are more active, an athlete, or looking to build more muscle then you may want to consume 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass.

Of course, collagen is good for keto. In fact, it is highly recommended to make sure you are consuming enough collagen rich foods like bone broth, leafy greens, citrus fruits (Vitamin C plays a major role in collagen synthesis), and grass fed meats. Protein is a very important macronutrient and should not be overlooked. Collagen is a great protein source that helps to complement the keto diet leading to better skin health, strengthening your joints and bones, muscle growth, and much more.

Where Can You Buy Collagen?

Collagen is pretty popular and widely available online, in health food stores, and supplement shops.

To make it easy for you we decided to offer a hydrolyzed grass fed collagen peptides supplement that is unflavored and has a pleasant smooth taste. You can easily mix 1-2 scoops into water, coffee, and smoothies. Enjoy with our BochaSweet sugar replacement for the most delicious recipes ever!

 

Sugar Free Amaretto Feature Image

Homemade Sugar Free Amaretto recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

This recipe for sugar free amaretto tastes just like the real thing. You can easily make this a non-alcoholic version by replacing the vodka with 1 cup of water. I’ve been avoiding alcohol recently and have been making all my favorite holiday drinks non-alcoholic instead.

This way, I get the flavor and ‘treat’ of a special holiday drink without the detrimental effects alcohol tends to have on my body. I learned recently that alcohol increases estrogen by 300% (I think for 24 hours) and reduces testosterone. That really got me thinking about how crappy I feel when I have a drink.

Regardless of the version you decide to enjoy.  This sugar free amaretto recipe will be a recipe you return to time and time again! For the best flavor, mix up this sugar free amaretto recipe at least one week in advance and allow it to age. If you’ve made the non-alcoholic version, you can enjoy it right away!

eto Christmas Coconut Clusters-2
, , ,

Keto Christmas coconut clusters recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

We love chocolate, especially for our keto Christmas smorgasbord! This keto Christmas recipe is one of our all time favorites and is very adaptable.

You can swap out the coconut for your favorite chopped nuts. You can put the melted chocolate into molds to make them pretty. You can adjust how dark the chocolate is using a little heavy cream and melted cacao butter!

And of course. You have full control over how sweet (or not sweet) they are!

Adjusting the level of richness is totally customizable with a few tricks. You can add some heavy whipping cream (but not too much). You can also grab some cacao butter and melt that down using low heat and mix that into the chocolate.

KETO CHRISTMAS COCONUT CLUSTERS

Keto Christmas Coconut Clusters

Start to Finish: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 9 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons BochaSweet
  • Sea salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Begin by toasting your coconut in a 300 degrees oven for about 3 minutes. Make sure you watch the coconut closely as it can burn quickly!
  2. While you allow the coconut to cool, chop your chocolate and place it in a microwave safe bowl.
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute on power level 4. Stir and repeat, decreasing the time to 30 seconds once the chocolate is 2/3 melted.You don’t want to overheat the chocolate as this will break the temper and the texture of your finished chocolates won’t be right.
  4. Once the chocolate is cooled, mix in your sweeteners and a pinch of salt. Sweeten to taste. If you prefer a lighter milk chocolate, mix in ¼ c to ½ cup of heavy whipping cream. We prefer very dark chocolate and left it out.
  5. Finally stir, in your toasted coconut. Allow the mixture to set for 10-20 minutes, but keep a close eye on it because if your house is cold it could set quickly. Once it firms up a bit, drop by tablespoons full on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt and some BochaSweet. The clusters should set in 10-20 minutes.
  6. Store in a tightly sealed container for up to two weeks!

Orange Ginger Pumpkin Loaf

Orange Ginger Pumpkin Loaf recipe provided by Amanda Hokanson

This orange ginger pumpkin loaf is a gluten and sugar free take on traditional pumpkin loaf. While most recipes use high glycemic flours or sweeteners to make a sweet tasting loaf with a moist texture, this recipe uses no gluten and is sweetened with BochaSweet.

How is this pumpkin loaf made without high glycemic flours? Simple. This recipe gets a makeover with low carb, paleo, and keto-friendly flours like coconut and almond flour which also packs a protein boost from whey protein powder.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, this orange ginger pumpkin loaf makes for the perfect addition to your holiday menu.

Orange Ginger Pumpkin Loaf

Orange Ginger Pumpkin Loaf

Makes one 4.25×8″ loaf but this recipe lends itself well to doubling! Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour loaf pan.

Tip: plain or complementary flavored protein powder is a great substitute for flour if you are strictly gluten free or avoiding any hint of additional carbs.

INGREDIENTS:

Loaf Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup BochaSweet
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (increase to 1/2 if using unsalted butter)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon oat fiber
  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/3 cup unflavored whey protein powder (81% whey concentrate)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • Zest from one large orange (reserve juice for glaze)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Glaze Ingredients

  • 5 teaspoons BochaSweet
  • 2 fl. oz. fresh, strained orange juice
  • 2 ounces softened cream cheese

INSTRUCTIONS:

Loaf Instructions

  1. Melt butter and set aside to cool slightly.

  3. Mix together dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients, mix until just combined, then add butter and finish mixing thoroughly.

  6. Quickly and thoroughly mix in the apple cider vinegar. Immediately transfer to baking pan and place in oven.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes and then lightly cover with foil (my pans are dark and things get REALLY brown).
  8. Remove from oven and cool on a rack–still covered in foil–for about 15 minutes.
  9. Tip out of pans and allow to cool further while you make the glaze.

Glaze Instructions

  1. Whisk together everything over medium heat until smooth and fragrant.
  2. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. Pour over loaf ensuring that all the crevices are completely filled.

Fall wouldn’t feel complete without smooth and delicious low carb pumpkin bars loaded with a velvety cream cheese frosting. These keto pumpkin bars have no added sugar and are just about as low in carbs as a low carb pumpkin bar can get.

Instead of sugar, I use a combination of sugar alternatives and just a hint of molasses. To get just the right level of moisture and creaminess, I’ve used sour cream in the filling.

Wondering if these could possibly be keto?

They are! In moderation. Keep reading to get the full nutrition facts.

My absolute favorite dessert on the planet is a cheesecake with lemon curd on top! As soon as I mastered my Keto Cheesecake, I knew Keto Lemon Curd was my next challenge!

I adapted this recipe from The Joy of Cooking Lemon Curd Recipe. With my new secret weapon (BochaSweet) in hand, I knew it wasn’t going to be too difficult to get the taste just right.

I really like a tart lemon curd and to get the perfect tart flavor, I used Lemon Vitality Essential Oil by Young Living.

INGREDIENTS:

To Make Crust

  • 4 cups walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons BochaSweet
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 2/3 cup BochaSweet
  • 2 lemons grated zest
  • 1 cup lemon juice (3-4 lemons)
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut in pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5-8 drops Young Living  Lemon Vitality Essential Oil (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Making The Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a spring-form pan with parchment paper.
  2. This is optional, but makes removing the cheesecake and transferring it to a plate a breeze!
  3. Pulse walnuts in food processor until finely ground.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and process for 1 minute until it forms into a batter.
Preparation
  1. Prepare your tools so that you can work quickly. You will need a mesh colander like the one pictured in the video to strain the lemon curd. You will also need a bowl you that the mesh colander will fit in so that you can pour the lemon curd into the colander with ease. Have this set up beside your cooking area.
  2. Transfer the batter to your lined springform pan.
  3. Working from the inside out, press batter into the spring-form pan making sure the batter goes to the edges and is pressed down firmly.
  4. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool completely before filling. (The middle will look like it’s not quite set up, and this is ok!)
Making The Cheesecake
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Make sure all of your ingredients are warmed!
  2. Prepare your springform pan for a water bath. See the video & instructions on the blog post.
  3.  Combine cream cheese and BochaSweet and mix on low until smooth. If your mixture is lumpy, this means your cream cheese isn’t warm enough. Warm it now before proceeding further. Also, make sure your other ingredients are warm. See the blog post for tips.
  4. Add eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, vanilla, salt and almond extract to the cream cheese mixture. Mix on low until smooth.
  5. Bake in a water bath for 60 minutes at 300 degrees. The water bath creates creamy, amazing results and is well worth the extra effort.
  6. Turn off the oven and allow to set for 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Remove your baked cheesecake from the oven and allow to cool completely before placing it in the refrigerator.
  8. Get my recipe for creamy keto caramel sauce and use as a topping!
Making The Keto Lemon Curd
  1. In a medium saucepan, mix the eggs, BochaSweet and lemon zest together until thoroughly combined.
  2. Add lemon juice and butter and turn heat to medium.
  3. Whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture is thickened and come to a gentle simmer. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 20 seconds. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour lemon curd through the mesh colander that you have set up with a bowl underneath. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, work the lemon curd through the colander. Set the colander aside.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and 5 drops Young Living Vitality Lemon Essential Oil (optional). Taste the lemon curd and add additional drops of oil until you’re pleased with the tartness.
  6. Allow the lemon curd to cool for about 30 minutes before pouring it on top of your cheesecake. (Cheesecake should still have the springform pan on it.
  7. Pour filling onto cooled crust.
  8. Pour the lemon curd onto your finished cheesecake and spread until even. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours prior to serving.
