LeBron James on no-carb diet to prepare for upcoming NBA season

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by RD-in-training Courtney Ferreira and a ketogenic diet advocate Peggy Holloway whose success story on a low-carb, high-fat diet was one of the featured ones in Jimmy's bestselling new book Keto Clarity. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Courtney and Peggy talk about a columnist who completely misrepresents the low-carb, ketogenic diet in a mainstream health article, the video that went viral on the Internet showing a 32-year old man on an operating table with a heart attack with a flashback in his life about how he got there, new statistics from the Centers For Disease Control predicting 40% of Americans will get diabetes, a mostly pro-Paleo article in Runner's World magazine, Dr. Josh Axe's list of "death foods" on The Dr. Oz Show website, and how NBA superstar LeBron James may help put low-carb living on the map to a young generations of fans who desperately need his inspiration to eat better. Now pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Courtney's Snackmonster (Grain-Free) Granola

Dry ingredients:
1c almond meal (coarse ground such as from Trader Joes)
½ c flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp sea salt- more to taste
1 c shredded unsweetened coconut
¼ c sunflower seeds (or any other seeds/nut of a similar size such as pumpkin seeds, cashew pieces, slivered almonds)
~2 c mix unroasted, unsalted nuts (combo of almonds, pecans, walnuts is my favorite)
1 big handful of dried wild blueberries (or other dried fruit diced up)

Wet ingredients:
1 Tbsp vanilla
½ c coconut oil in solid form
¼ c + 1 Tbsp honey

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil (this makes for easier clean up).

2. Mix all dry ingredients (EXCEPT dried fruit) in a large bowl.

3. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Mix in the honey and vanilla and then stir into the dry until everything is moistened.

4. Use a spatula to spread granola evenly on the baking sheet.

5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently stir and flip in sections.

6. Increase temperature to 325 degrees.

7. While oven temp increases sprinkle your dried fruit over the just flipped granola and press down into the granola with a spatula.

8. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, you don’t want it to darken too much and taste burnt.

9. Once removed from the oven let it cool, this is what will let it get crunchy.

10. Enjoy over full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, with almond milk, or just by itself!
