Which of these recipes is your chocolate whipped cream?
Thanks

On the recipe page it is called Faux Chocolate Mousse, but really it is just super thick chocolate whipped cream

I attribute the abandonment of my low carb diet in the early 90's to artificial sweeteners. I never fell for the low fat products as fat was replaced by sugar. I am so thankful for the Paleo movement. I now enjoy real food and cooking. The use of:butter, coconut oil, lard, bacon grease, and my daily supplement of MCT oil has given me the satisfaction I need to turn my back on the desire for sweets. I occasionally have a square of 80% chocolate which is all I need. My cravings are now for steak and kale.

MCT stands for medium-chain-triglyceride, which products include the coconut oil so many of us are very fond of. Check your favorite search engine for more extensive information.

MCT Oil or Medium-Chain Triglyceride Oil consists of 100 percent medium-chain fatty acids.Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) oils are a special class of fats that are digested and handled by the body in a different way than most fats. Most fats are long-chain triglycerides which are difficult to process, so the body prefers to store them in fat cells.MCT oil is easily absorbed by the body and is therefore ideal for individuals with digestive problems. For those with Crohn's and irritable bowel syndrome, the healing effects of MCT oil could be beneficial. MCT promotes intestinal health by killing troublesome microorganisms that may cause chronic inflammation.Diabetics could benefit from using MCT oil as it helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Supplementation of MCT oil began as a fat source to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity and fat malabsorption. Bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts have used MCT for its fat burning and energy-sustaining powers. It has been found that MCTs burn three times more calories for six hours after a meal than other fats. It is thought that MCTs stimulate production of thyroid hormone, improving thyroid function boosting metabolism.If using MTC Oil for the first time, it is important to slowly introduce small amounts into the diet because it can cause diarrhea. Just follow the directions on the bottle.

Heartbelly:

When you said you take MCT oil as a supplement, I was wondering if you meant in capsule form?

I eat mine in fudge I make. If you are interested, go to our recipe section to find it. Quite a pleasant way to get it in my diet!

No, I take it, and the coconut oil by the teaspoon or tablespoon three times a day. The oil is tasteless and easy to swallow. Some people put MCT oil in smoothies or add it to salad dressing. As far as I know you cannot heat it. Coconut Oil on the other hand, can be used in cooking in the place of butter or other fats. I usually take a teaspoon of both oils if I am hungry or do not have time for breakfast.
