Ask Dr. Tostado : How Do You Like to Start Every Morning?


“I simply love the flavor of coconut and banana, so I start every day by putting 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with the iBODY greens powder and a whole banana or so in a blender with filtered water and a few shake of cinnamon for a nice spicy kick!

This is a high-powered energy drink that keeps me full for 4 to 5 hours!  Coconut oil is a great saturated fat that is literally brain food and dense with energy. It also helps tremendously with digestion so that bowel movement is regulated. The acid in coconut oil is absorbed by the brain to increase cognitive function.  In addition, cinnamon helps prevent insulin resistance. It is good for diabetics and in the prevention diabetes. Banana has potassium and fiber, I just happen to like the flavor, but it does add a great density to the shake. It’s a shake I recommend to all my patients and they enjoy the energy they get from it.”
