I was first introduced to Sweet Spreads Coconutter a few weeks ago and I literally fell in love with it. At first I was a bit sceptical because obviously the fat count is high, but for anyone who has read this blog; you will know I love my healthy fats and this Coconutter was certainly no exception.
Firstly, for those who don’t know; Coconutter is a sweet coconut butter spread that is full of healthy fats and MCT’s – Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCT’s are the best types of fats you can have as they are incredible at helping with energy levels and also aid with fat loss, as the body absorbs the MCT’s and quickly metabolises them for fuel, therefore they don’t store as fat. The Coconutter is also an all-natural coconut spread and is free from everything you can think of; Gluten, Dairy, Soy, GMO, Preservatives – to name a few and can easily be worked into a healthy, balanced diet. As I have been doing.
Other than this Coconutter being totally healthy and beneficial to you, I also love that it goes well with everything from; crumpets, to rye bread and sweet omelettes. Although, I especially loved it in these; White Chocolate Flapjacks and even more so since I combined it with my favourite chocolate; White chocolate chips.
I can already hear the gasps. White chocolate chips? How are they healthy? If I have learned one thing this year it’s balance. I suffered for so long with an eating disorder that I didn’t even realise while I was eating ‘healthy’ I was still going around in circles where food was concerned and replacing one eating disorder with another. At first it was restricting, then when I chose to eat low carb/clean eating, I became obsessed with ingredients on labels and how much sugar and salt was in everything; while those things are important they aren’t meant to be obsessed over and that is what had happened to me.
This year I have learned how to enjoy food, whether it’s labelled healthy, or unhealthy because like life itself; food is all about finding a balance and when you have established that, then everything else will fall into place and I have definitely developed a more positive mind because of it.
