Raspberry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl from Coconuts and Kettlebells

We’re excited to talk about a new cookbook and workout guide from the expert hosts of the popular Well-Fed Women Podcast, Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper! Coconuts and Kettlebells is a step-by-step food and fitness plan for women that teaches them how to improve their health by changing the quality—not the quantity—of the food they eat.

Noelle and Stefani know about eating for health firsthand. They, too, struggled with confusing and frustrating medical conditions, including infertility, digestive issues, acne, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, and anemia. They discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food: they ditched the diet books, calorie counters, and scales, and started eating their way to health.

In Coconuts and Kettlebells, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day thanks to a delicious selection of dishes that are all gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. Within those 2,000 calories, setting a minimum intake of protein, fat, and carbohydrates instead of the usual maximums will ensure that your diet is full of nutrients, while also providing flexibility to enjoy what you’re eating. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar—that cause the most health problems among women. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step program to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on—and which you don’t—to feel better.

The Raspberry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl we’re sharing today is refreshing, light, and perfect for summer. It tastes good AND will make you feel good. Coconuts and Kettlebells is on sale August 7th.
