Chocolate Fat Burning Breakfast Bowl

Yep!  A chocolate fat burning breakfast bowl.  lol  There are just certain things that must be incorporated into my daily life in order to maintain results while keeping from feeling deprived.  Chocolate is definitely one of them.  I mean really, who wants to give up chocolate?!  No one I know.  And surely, no client I’ve ever worked!!  I mean seriously, did you know there are TONS of health benefits to chocolate in its raw and purest form, raw cacao?  Minerals including potassium, 125 mg per tablespoon actually, fiber and much more!

This is Sacramento, CA Nutritionist Dani Conway and I help women ditch the diet, lose weight and gain energy!  I am bringing you an amazing real food, good fat, gluten free, simple breakfast recipe that will keep you satiated and energized all morning long.

This is also a fantastic, no sugar, low carb, way to keep chocolate in your life.  This breakfast even supports a light keto nutrition plan or strict ketogenic lifestyle and gives you an awesome mix of protein, good fat + low net carbs.  There are a few, though one of the main reasons we get food and sugar cravings throughout the day is because we consume too many carbs in relation to how much protein and fat we are eating.  This recipe also calls for some good MCT based fats that our body burns as fuel.

*The proper fats give the body what the liver needs to produce ketones.  Ketones are simply a by-product of a healthy fat metabolism.  Ketones can be made by the body through a Ketogenic Diet.  Also, taken supplementally.  Keto Diet and the benefits of ketosis have been positively researched for years.  Benefits of ketones in the body include fat loss, muscle preservation and fast and sustained energy.  Also, reduced brain fog, increased focus and appetite suppression.  Strength gain along with better digestion and clear skin are also reported.  Typical sweet breakfasts are loaded with hidden junk that is not real food.  Usually loaded with sugar and other hidden ingredients too. These types of temptations really make it easy to sabotage all clean eating efforts.

This is my favorite Keto breakfast recipe for my active days!  And my clients love these types of recipes.  I mean who wouldn’t!  Chocolate for breakfast!  Great for the kids too!  Now, for the recipe… there is also a dairy free Keto + vegan Keto version below!
