Coconut Bombs

COVID-19.  It’s literally all we hear in the news.  Hence, today I simply want to focus on something fun and easy.  Both my posts on supporting your immune systems, mention coconut oil.  It’s anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial; and as Sally Fallon points out, “the coronavirus is a lipid-coated virus that pegs out in the presence of medium-chain triglycerides — and coconut oil is our best source of these healthy fats.”.

So, here is a fun and easy recipe using coconut oil.  It’s a healthy snack, good for those trying to cut the sugar fix and RESTART approved.

ENJOY!
