I made these up for our latest raw event we had at our Fat Burning Party. These were tasty and appropriate because pine nuts have an appetite suppressant so you eat less. Several of our guests told me that they were not hungry after having one! So I they work! :) These are great little hand appetizers that people can eat at parties and they look tasty and cute too!
The Bacon Jalapeno Poppers made with pine nuts. New research on pine nuts show that they are a natural appetite suppressant. They contain Pinolenic acid which is a polyunsaturated fat that encourages two hormones (including CCK) that suppress hunger. It signals to your brain that you aren't hungry any more. The secret to pine nuts effectiveness is cholecystokinin (or CCK) which is a peptide hormone gene expressed through the digestive tract, set off by food intake and released into the blood stream. The hormone sends a signal to the brain which indicates satiation.
