Keto Vanilla Ice Cream

Keto Vanilla Ice Cream recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

Creating the perfect Keto Ice Cream is a project I’ve been researching for awhile. The end result of this recipe is a Keto Ice Cream that comes out in a soft-serve consistency. Freezing it for a few hours firms it up nicely. The best part is, it’s scoopable like a traditional hard ice cream the next day!

The secret? It’s in the gelatin and the BochaSweet. Both of these work together to create the perfect ice cream! Substitute at your own risk. The first few Keto Ice Cream Recipes I looked at used raw eggs. I knew my kids would be eating this and wasn’t thrilled about feeding them raw eggs in this quantity.

So, I pulled on my past homemade ice cream making knowledge and went ahead and cooked the entire mixture. I was a little worried about using the whole egg–but figured it was worth a shot! The gelatin is an additive that helps the ice cream be scoopable a day or two later.

If you plan on your family and friends eating the entire batch when it’s made–you could omit this without any worry.

Keto Vanilla Ice Cream

This keto vanilla ice cream recipe results in a creamy, satisfying ice cream that’s perfect for a low carb, high fat diet! Even better, it freezes up to be scoopable in the following days because of the gelatin and BochaSweet. Plus, this keto ice cream recipe is cooked and does not have raw eggs in it. A bonus when you’re feeding a family or prefer to avoid raw eggs.

Course: Dessert, Keto
Cuisine: Keto
INGREDIENTS:
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon gelatin
  • 2 cups unsweetened unflavored almond milk
  • 3/4 cups BochaSweet
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a medium sized sauce pan with NO heat, combine eggs, almond milk, heavy cream, BochaSweet, salt and gelatin. Whisk together.
  2. Prepare your mesh strainer, a bowl of ice and a bowl that will sit inside the bowl of ice. Place these items beside your cooking area.
  3. Now it’s time to turn on the heat!! Whisking constantly, turn your stove onto low heat. Gradually increase the heat to medium until your mixture reaches a minimum of 160 degrees. Stir constantly.
  4. If you don’t have a thermometer to measure the temperature, watch the video to see what the consistency looks like when the mixture reaches approximately 160 degrees. Our goal here is to cook the eggs so they aren’t raw.
  5. Once your mixture is cooked. Working quickly, pour your cooked mixture through the mesh sieve into the bowl underneath.
  6. Cover and refrigerate mixture until thoroughly chilled. This takes from 2-4 hours.
  7. Once chilled, mix vanilla into the ice cream mixture.
  8. Freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  9. For a firmer ice cream, pour into a container and seal tightly. Freeze for 2-4 hours prior to serving! The gelatin in the ice cream helps this ice cream scoop up well even the next day or two.

MCT Oil
, ,

If you are looking to boost physical performance, support brain function, and support heart health then you may want to consider consuming MCT oil. 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.

Long-chain fatty acids (13-22+ carbon atoms)  are typical of fats found in plant and animal fat. Surprisingly, MCT oil is a type of fat that does not produce fat in the body.

Here are some ways MCT oil works in the body to help make you more fit and healthier.

MCTs Boost Physical Performance

When it comes to boosting physical performance, MCT oil is beneficial for providing that efficient fuel source for your body. This helps you to improve your physical performance during exercise.

A study done on recreational athletes ingesting MCT’s reduced blood lactate levels and significantly increased the duration of high intensity exercise(1).

When it comes to endurance, MCT oil also seems to be quite promising. Ingestion of MCT’s among endurance-trained cyclists helped to improve cycling performance(2).

It makes perfect sense to ingest a MCT oil based food source prior to exercise for that clean energy. To optimize your workout performance,  be sure to try one of our BochaBars which features coconut MCT oil powder as one of its ingredients.

MCTs Support Brain Function

The conversion of MCT’s into ketones make it easy to pass through the blood-brain barrier which helps to support brain function.

MCTs help to improve brain fog, forgetfulness, and degeneration of the brain that occurs as you get older. Supplementing with MCTs is shown in a study from the journal Aging in Neuroscience to improve memory among subjects with memory impairment, which is due to the higher ketone levels found in the blood (3).

If you haven’t tried out MCTs yet, then you definitely want to start.

Next time you feel like you need a brain boost just remember to grab a BochaBar. A quick, tasty way to get not only MCTs for an efficient energy source but also healthy fats and protein to give you the nutrition you deserve.

MCTs Support Heart Health

Fat has been getting a lot of bad rap over the years due to the theory that it promotes heart disease. But, not all fat is created equal. The saturated fat found in coconut oil and/or MCT oil is beneficial for supporting heart health.

The MCTs found in coconut oil have the potential to support healthy cholesterol levels. A study done by the Journal of Nutrition on overweight men consuming MCTs led to an overall better lipid profile(4).

Other benefits of MCTs have been noted in this study to potentially reduce body fat, body weight, and blood trigylcerides when combined with an appropriate dietary regime (5).

Why Choose BochaBar?

It can be time consuming to add MCT oil into your diet when you are on-the-go or need something quick and convenient to eat. Our BochaBars are perfect for individuals looking to enjoy a great tasting snack which makes it easier to incorporate MCT oil into the diet.

Our BochaBars come in two incredibly delicious flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Vanilla Almond Crunch.

Start improving all aspects of your health by making MCT oil a part of your daily lifestyle. By adding BochaBars into your daily diet, you can fuel your body with the optimal nutrition you deserve.

Remember to rip open a BochaBar and enjoy! Plus, look so cool while eating one! (Feel free to submit to us your BochaBar selfies on social media with the hashtag #GrabABochaBar.)

3 Ways Collagen Can Benefit Your Health
, ,

Collagen is a “hot” ingredient on the supplement market, you may have heard about it from popular health gurus or seen it at your local vitamin shop. This powerhouse superfood is quite impressive when it comes to its anti-aging health benefits.

It’s a protein source that can be derived from the bones and skin of cows, chicken, or even fish.

It’s also found in our own bodies. It’s the most abundant structural protein in the human body and is found in skin, bones, muscles, blood vessels, digestive system, and tendons. Although, our modern diets are some underlying reasons for depleting our collagen production which leads to sagging skin, aging, joint pain, and weakened cartilage.

Now, is the time to start making collagen a priority in your life to get back your health to its youthful state. In this article, you will learn 3 ways collagen can help benefit your health.

1. Improves Health of Skin and Joints

As you start to age, your skin starts to lose its elasticity and wrinkles begin to form. This is due to a decrease in collagen production which can be solved by upping primarily the intake of the amino acids glycine and proline. These two amino acids play a major role in collagen production.

There is a total of 18 amino acids found in collagen. 8 of these amino acids are considered essential amino acids.

Ingesting hydrolyzed collagen has been shown to help counteract the changes brought on by aging.

A study conducted on 217 subjects that presently had fine lines or wrinkles resulted in 109 of these subjects had significant improvement in their facial lines after 60 days of treatment with collagen.

Collagen surprisingly also has some powerful benefits when it comes to joint health. A 24 week study conducted on athletes with joint pain showed significant changes by supplementing with 10g of collagen daily. The findings show promising for patients suffering from osteoarthritis.

2. Helps To Maintain Healthy Cardiac Function

Collagen is an essential compound that is considered vital to maintaining the health of cardiac tissue according to the Journal of American Collage of Cardiology.

Collagen is rich in the amino acid proline which is great for cardiac health by reducing fat buildup in the bloodstream. It also has arginine which is an amino acid that helps with nitric oxide production and relaxes the blood vessels for better circulation.

There is also some interesting studies looking into how collagen supplementation can help with atherosclerosis. 32 healthy volunteers supplemented with collagen by adding it to a liquid of their choice (water, miso soup, green tea, or similar beverage). The changes after the 6 month study show a significant reduction in the cholesterol ratio along with the recovery of blood vessel elasticity.

3. Supports Healthy Hair and Nails

Nothing is more frustrating than seeing your own hair starting to recede when you look in the mirror. With collagen you can strengthen your hair follicles and have your hair growing vibrantly and fully like it was in its youth. Although, the findings are not yet clear, collagen shows potential when it comes to hair follicle regeneration.

Another broken nail? Say goodbye to broken nails. You are not alone, brittle nail syndrome is a common problem among women. Collagen supplementation has reported a 12% nail growth rate increase and a 42% decrease in broken nail frequency according to this PubMed study.

Adding collagen to your diet helps to keep your nails strong.

So, now you are probably quite AMAZED by these benefits and can’t wait to get your hands on this superfood!

Make Collagen A Priority For Your Health

You probably have a clear understanding why collagen should be an important component to your health goals. But, the challenge due to our fast-paced modern lifestyle makes it difficult to consume this amazing superfood on a daily basis.

We have made this easy for you by adding a sufficient dose of collagen in our BochaBars, our new line of protein bars. Whether you are constantly on the commute, facing long hours at work, or an active fitness enthusiast looking for a convenient way to get in more collagen. These bars are for you. You can also grab a 10 oz bag of our Grass Fed Collagen Peptides which can be easily mixed into smoothies, coffee, and soups for an extra protein boost. We are confident that you will notice new changes to your health.

3 Amazing Benefits of Eating Almonds
, , ,

Almonds are packed with protein and contain beneficial nutrients such as magnesium.  Almonds also contain powerful antioxidant, vitamin E, which helps to combat oxidative stress that contributes to aging. This superfood tree nut is a beneficial choice for diabetics for supporting healthy blood sugar levels. Since high levels of LDL cholesterol is a well-known risk factor for heart disease, the daily consumption of almonds is highly recommended by nutritional experts because almonds have impressive benefits to lowering the LDL and maintaining the “good” HDL cholesterol.

Almonds Have Life Extension Benefits

Almonds have an interesting history. They have been consumed as far back as B.C. They were served to Egypt’s pharaoh’s as a prized ingredient. During the silk road era explorers would consume almonds while traveling. 

Ancient Indian Ayurvdeic practicioners even touted almonds for their life enhancing capabilities.

Today you can find almonds widely available as a raw snack, nut butter, almond milk, or even in flour form.

Nutritional Information (1/4 cup serving size)

Almonds are rich in essential nutrients 

  • Vitamin E (16mg)
  • Riboflavin (0.4mg)
  • Manganese (0.8mg)
  • Magnesium (97mg)
  • Phosphorus (172mg)
  • Calcium (96mg)
  • Iron (33mg)

Vitamin E found in almonds helps to nourish the skin and reduce signs of aging.

Almonds are consumed in the raw nut form or as almond butter which is another good option. Sounds like a pretty tasty path to longevity, if you ask me!

Almonds Help to Support Health Blood Sugar Levels

With more than 50% of American adults currently with prediabetes and an alarming 30 million that already have diabetes according to JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association).

It makes sense to start eating a food source that can help to support healthy blood sugar levels. It’s as easy as consuming some almonds! Or, simply grab one of our delicious BochaBars that come in two flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Vanilla Almond Crunch.

The rich amount of Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA’s) found in almonds has a slow rate of glucose being released into the blood stream.

A pubmed study was conducted on 65 adults with prediabetes that had a modification to their diet over a 16 week period… where 20% of their energy was derived from almonds.

The results were astonishing with the almond group exhibiting a greater reduction in insulin compared to the nut-free control group.

To conclude, consuming a diet that had 20% of it coming from almonds over a 16 week period improved markers for insulin sensitivity.

Almonds Can Help Support Healthy Cholesterol Levels

I’m sure you are probably aware by now that having high LDL cholesterol is a significant risk factor for heart disease. For optimal health, you want to have a higher amount of HDL “good cholesterol” while keeping LDL substantially lower. Almonds have  benefits for healthy cholesterol levels.

A PubMed study was conducted as a randomized crossover study on 27 hyperlipidemic men and women for 1 month. The results showed that the almond consumption group produced the greatest reduction in levels of blood lipids along with a significant reduction in LDL cholesterol.

Make Almonds Part of Your Healthy Diet

So, there you have it. Now you can see why we utilize almonds as one of our main ingredients in our line of great tasting gluten-free protein BochaBars.

Go ahead. Enjoy a BochaBar. Be proactive and make almonds part of your healthy diet and receive these 3 amazing health benefits.

Vegan MCT-Powered Latte Feature
, ,

Perhaps, you are not all too crazy about coffee or want to change up your “go-to” morning beverage. This is why we went ahead and put together a delicious, creamy vegan yerba mate latte that packs a clean caffeine kick. This drink also contains energizing MCT powder, adaptogenic mushrooms, plant protein, and raw cacao to fuel your brain.

The addition of MCT (medium chain triglycerides) powder is a superfood that fuels the brain and breaks down into C8, C10, and C12 medium fatty acids. These fatty acids are further added to be metabolized in the liver and turned into energy. Further it breaks down into ketones and is used by the brain as fuel. This is a stable source of energy which is great for those that follow a keto diet. In this latte, you will also find a blend of adaptogenic mushrooms – reishi being one of our favorites – which contains properties that help to combat stress, enhance vitality, and potentially act as a detoxifying liver cleanse.
