Here is a link to a very thorough and highly researched article by Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT discussing the importance of fat and cholesterol, how they work in the brain, why statin use may be counterproductive for people at risk for and dealing with Alzheimer’s, the function of beta amyloid and why a high fat diet may be beneficial. I found this especially enlightening in its explanation of how cholesterol is packaged as it is transported throughout the body, and what it is packaged with in LDL particles, for example, may be a surprise.
Dr. Seneff has written many other similar articles of great interest to those concerned with cholesterol, statins, Alzheimer’s, autism and other neurodegenerative diseases, many of which can be downloaded from her homepage. http://people.csail.mit.edu/seneff/

We all know it’s impossible to get the kids to fall in love with vegetables, but we’ve got the recipes to help you trick them!
How many of you have struggled with getting your kids to eat vegetables? Because I have! Though I don’t have kids of my own just yet when my niece sees anything on her plate she’ll have a temper tantrum. It has become impossible to make her fall in love with vegetables. Today, on Eat Your Vegetable Day, I’ve looked on recipes to trick our kids into thinking they’re not eating veggies. How smart is that!?
This recipe from Tasty is one that will have the kids asking for a second burger.
2 lb of ground beef
1 tablespoon of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
2 carrots (shredded)
2 head of broccoli (shredded)
12 cheese slices
12 burger buns
Kelapo Coconut Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray
In a large bowl, add the ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Using your hands mix the seasoning with the ground beef and make sure that it’s evenly distributed. Using a shredder, shred the carrots and the broccoli heads and add to the ground beef. Use your hands to mix the veggies with the ground beef. Once mixed together, make 12 small patties by shaping them in your hands. Spray the Kelapo Coconut Oil Spray on the skillet and make about 3 to 4 patties at a time. Top with cheese on the skillet before serving the patty so the cheese melts. Serve on buns with ketchup and mustard. Your kids won’t be able to tell the difference!
This pasta may have a green sauce, but your kids will see noodles and definitely not give it a second guess when eating them.
1 cup of broccoli florets (steamed)
1 large handful of fresh basil
1 garlic clove
½ cup of grated parmesan
Salt (to taste)
½ cup of olive oil (more if needed)
Boil up your kid’s favorite pasta then drain and set aside. In a food processor add the broccoli, basil, garlic, parmesan, and salt. Pulse all the ingredients together until they are finely chopped. In between pulses, pour in the olive oil a little bit at a time. Scrape the sides, and check if the consistency is that of pesto sauce. If not, add a bit more olive oil and pulse again.
Peace, love and Kelapo
