"[RECIPE] GLUTEN-FREE BANANA BREAD"

Delish post-workout, for breakfast on-the-go, a mid-morning snack (coffee optional, but highly recommended ;) ) or anytime, this healthier bread is made with almond flour - a lower in carb, higher in good fat alternative to regular flour - and freezes well. Enjoy a slice warm out of the oven then slice the rest of the loaf, wrap and freeze in individual servings for easy grab n’ go. Throw a frozen slice in your lunch bag, purse/briefcase or just on the counter, and it’ll be defrosted in no time! Warm it up in the toaster or under the broiler, even add a smear of your favorite nut butter. Or, try it grilled in a cast iron skillet with a little grass-fed butter or coconut oil. If you try it, share your creations on our Facebook page and/or tag us on Instagram @vukoobar.

“Coconut Oil—America’s Favorite Fat"

Does This Plant Oil Have a Place in Your Diet?

Everyone, everywhere is talking about how great organic coconut oil is for you. “I use it for this, I put it on that…” But if someone asked, could you tell them what’s so great about it? If so, no prob – you’re a step ahead of me. But if not, my hope is that after reading this post you’ll be able to take a decent, at least somewhat more informed stab at that question.

And while we won’t get into the nitty gritty science of it here, I thought I’d outline for you three of its most noteworthy benefits, along with some additional considerations, that could help you to improve your health.

Reduce Hunger – Organic coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain fatty triglycerides (MCTs), which are metabolized differently than other fatty acids. Shorter in length at the molecular level than more complex fatty acids, MCTs are preferable for quick energy and do not require hormones or enzymes in digestion. Instead, they head for the liver, where they are converted to ketones – one of the body’s preferred energy sources – for energy; not stored as fat.

"Why Vukoo is Vital for the Modern Busy Man"

You’re frantic.

Your cab was late this morning.

You only just got to the airport in time.

Getting through security took forever, and now you’re sat next to the screaming kid on the plane.

You realize you’ve not shaved, and you accidentally put on the cheapest, oldest shirt you own ... the one with the tiny stain on the collar.

Looking in your bag for some sustenance (as you didn’t have time for breakfast) you sigh ... nothing.

"Start JERF-ing"

What’s the best thing you can do to give you a better body?

To lose stubborn fat?

To fuel peak performance?

And to ramp up your productivity and provide you with unlimited energy?

Everyone seems to have an answer to this, but it’s seldom they get it right.

Folk tend to think that they have to go low-carb, get rid of meat from their diet, follow some sort of detox plan, go super-low on calories, or hit the gym every day. 

None of that helps.

The truth?

If you really want to maximize your body’s capabilities, raise energy levels and alertness, get lean, fit and strong, you need only do one thing –

"Going Gluten-Free: The "Fad" that isn't a Fad"

It’s a war.

A battle that will rage for generations to come.

There are two armies.

On the one side, you have those who refuse to believe the dangers that their opposition propose.

This “opposition” however, are firm in their own beliefs, and they know who their enemy is ...

Gluten.

"Say Goodbye to Soy!"

One of the biggest questions I get from Vukoo customers is –

“Hey, Christopher, 
Why do you make such a big deal out of the fact your bars are soy-free?”

It’s a valid query, I mean – soy’s one of the widest-consumed “health foods” across America, right?

We’re always told that swapping out meat and eating more veggie products will do us the world of good, and that vegetarians are so much healthier than omnivores.

So why then, am I – a guy who’s all about health, happiness and longevity – so anti-soy?
