Raspberries // your fats worst enemy


RASPBERRIES // have the potential to improve management in obesity

Although this research is in its early stages, scientists now know that metabolism in our fat cells can be increased by phytonutrients found in raspberries, especially rheosmin (also called raspberry ketone).

By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen production and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin may be able to decrease the risk of obesity as well as risk of fatty liver.

In addition to these benefits, rheosmin can decrease activity of a fat-digesting enzyme released by our pancreas called pancreatic lipase. This decrease in enzyme activity may result in less digestion and absorption of fat.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be super fancy or well thought out–It literally can be the same cereal everyday but with different additives.

Why have just cereal when there are so many ways to change it up? I don’t care for repetition so by adding new “toppings” to my cereal I constantly feel like I am changing it up while getting delicious nutrients to start my day.

My current rotation for cereal toppings are:

granola + raspberries + chia seeds


bananas + blueberries + chia seeds


Other delicious and nutritious toppings include:

-goji berries

-cacao nibs


-coconut shavings

-flax seed

-hemp seeds

-passion fruit

-maca powder


How will you change up your morning routine?
