Christmas Baking

There’s a chill in the air this morning so the wood furnace is pumping, christmas carols are blaring, and I’m baking cookies! I found a recipe for gingerbread with a new spin: COCONUT! There’s been so many new studies out saying how coconut oil can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. High in Omega-6 essential fatty acids, coconut oil is a “good” saturated fat needed for energy, hormone production, cellular membranes and for organ padding. Delicious and good for your memory. Try it out for yourself!
