DEFEND YOURSELF
FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

Coconut Cake
Ahhhh, Spring... Easter coming up... Makes my thoughts turn to Coconut Cake... 

Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too!

We CAN have treats that we don't have to feel guilty about.

This cake is a really fun, no flour, high protein, good fats treat. No processed sugar. (Sweetness comes from coconut sugar.)

Hope you enjoy it and enjoy your virtual celebrations!!

White Beans provide a good source of protein, an excellent source of fiber, and several essential nutrients, specifically copper, folate and iron. 

Copper is an essential trace mineral that plays a role in making red blood cells and helps maintain the immune system. It also helps the body form collagen and absorb iron.

Folate is also known as vitamin B-9.

Iron supports your non-specific immune system, which is the part of your immune system that helps fight off outside viruses, bacterium, and disease-causing microorganisms.

Cheers!
