The Magic Pill – a documentary exploring food as medicine – is available on demand today on demand. Check your local TV provider, iTunes, Amazon VOD and others.

What if most of our modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem?

    Would like the recipe for the pancakes at the end. The dad said 3 ingredients. Egg, almond butter and I think squash? Squash? What kind? What’s the recipe please. Would like to try these.

    Awesome job. I've been eating keto for a year as a type 1 diabetic and feel great. My insulin requirements are down from 70 units a day to 25 (just my basil rate). My eczema has also disappeared and I'm sleeping way better.

    Simple pancakes made with just 3 ingredients. Delicious and nourishing. Makes about 24 small pancakes.


    1 cup squash, cooked
    1/2 cup homemade almond butter, or other nut butter
    4 pastured eggs
    Fat for cooking (lard, ghee, coconut oil, etc.) MIGHT BE THIS RECIPE

  13. Millie
    Any kind of squash?
  14. michelle

  15. Shawnna

    I would love a link to great recipes to incorporate into everyday life. I already eat low carb but feel like I need that little something beyond just veggie and meat everyday.

    Here is the Macademia Loaf Recipe that Sara made on the documentary, The Magic Pill.
    Keto Macadamia Fat Bread Recipe from The Magic Pill keto Netflix documentary

    Nutritional Values per Loaf: calories 3,183 carbs 25 (fibre 44) fat 309 protein 70


    150g or 5.3oz Macadamia Nuts or Macadamia Butter
    220g or 7.76oz Coconut Butter (also known as Manna)
    6g or 0.2oz Baking Soda
    3g or 0.1oz Pink Himalayan Salt
    60ml or 2 fl oz Lemon Juice
    5 eggs (circa 50g each)

    Batter Bowl
    Silicone Spatula
    Loaf Tin
    Coconut Oil Spray
    Hand Mixer
    High Speed Blender (to make nut butter)

    This is the bread recipe we saw in The Magic Pill made by Sara. I found her original recipe on her website but unfortunately, the website has some security issue so I decided to remake it. Took two attempts as the baking soda / ammonia smell that sometimes happens in keto baking happened here, so the amount of acid to counteract the alkaline was too little for my attempt, took the second one with twice as much lemon juice to make it work, but it's worth it and a very simple recipe.

    Hi Carol & fellow seekers.
    I had the same "security issue" when using Google.
    I then switched to Safari and had no issues. Since Google is a gov backed platform I could not help but wonder if Sara's website is being blocked due to the possible curative info that is found there. In other words keep trying to access the site. Just food for thought

    Its reassuring to know that pancakes in France are made with buckwheat flour and usually have a good cheese in their filling! Enjoy avoiding our modern wheat!

    Buckwheat, unfortunatly, is not lowcarb....... I live in Britanny and I have to avoid the delicious galettes in order to stay keto.
