WOULD YOU GO TO MCDONALD'S IF THEY SERVED KALE?

McDonald’s is so desperate it’s thinking about selling kale

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by a delightful pair of amazingly energetic sisters from Australia named Emma and Carla Papas from "The Merrymaker Sisters" blog. Listen to Jimmy and Cassie talk about 2015’s Metro Areas with the Biggest & Smallest Weight Problems where Jimmy's area of Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina came in the fourth worst for obesity and diabetes. Jimmy heard a local talk radio show host sharing about how people need to eat less and exercise more to deal with this problem and he had to call. Listen to our hosts share about how that all went down.
Jimmy and Cassie share about

CAN YOU BELIEVE STATINS CAN CAUSE HEART DISEASE?

The Merrymaker Sisters' Chocolate Coconut Raw Cake
BASE:
2 cups walnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 tbs. ghee or coconut oil
1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
pinch of salt

FILLING:
1 1/2 cups unsweetened dessicated coconut
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup organic coffee beans (optional)
1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Line the base of an 8-inch spring form cake tin with baking paper and grease the edges with a little coconut oil. Place all of the base ingredients into your food processor. Whiz these ingredients until a smooth paste forms. Press the base in to the cake tin, making sure you press it out evenly, covering the entire base. Place in to the freezer.

For the filling, place all the filling ingredients into the food processor and whiz. Whiz until completely smooth, this will take around 5 minutes. Take the base out of the freezer and pour the filling on top of the base. Shake the tin to even out the top and place the cake in to the fridge for around 1 1/2 hours or until set. Rub the outside of the cake tin with a hot cloth and release the spring form slowly. Cut into slices with a hot knife and store any left overs in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
