Funky Fat Choc Review and Giveaway!

Louisa Mesquita Bakka, Founder of Funky Fat Foods

Louisa Mesquita Bakker founded Funky Fat Foods 5 years ago after adopting a low carb, high fat lifestyle in order to address and successfully manage a health condition. Louisa has created a gourmet line of chocolate bars which are keto friendly, plant based, soy, sugar, gluten and trans fat free. The chocolate bars are made with very clean ingredients and have organic cacao, organic MCT powder and organic erythritol as the main ingredients which sets these bars apart from others on the market.

While traditional chocolate bars are laden with low quality cocoa, unhealthy sugars and artificial sweeteners which will spike your blood sugar, funky fat choc bars are made with 4 or 5 clean ingredients and average 2.5 net carbs per bar which is truly remarkable. Funky Fat Choc Bars are made in the Netherlands and as with all EU packaged products, the total carbs have already been subtracted from the fibre. Net carbs can be calculated by subtracting the polyols (e.g. erythritol) from the total carbs.

The Funky Fat Choc line currently consists of 5 delicious flavours: White Chocolate 48% and Bourbon Vanilla, Coconut, Dark Chocolate 70% and Coffee, Dark Chocolate 75% and Dark Chocolate 71% and Hazelnut. Our taste test panel unanimously agree that the chocolate bars are exceptionally creamy and richly flavoured with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The bars are sweetened to perfection and are the ideal treat to finish off your meal.

Funky Fat Foods Coconut, White Chocolate

The White Chocolate bar 48% and Bourbon Vanilla, is a healthy take on the traditional sugar laden and highly processed white chocolate bars from our youth. This rich and creamy bar has a lovely Bourbon Vanilla flavour which will transport you to a tropical island and remind you of a carefree summer holiday. For readers who are sensitive to caffeine, but are craving something creamy, this white chocolate bar is a great choice. The Dark Chocolate 71% and Coconut, will appeal to all the coconut lovers out there. The subtle coconut flakes pair perfectly with the rich, creamy and smooth dark chocolate and is the perfect flavour to reach for when you want something a little bit different.

Funky Fat Foods Coffee and Dark

The Dark Chocolate 70% and Coffee is the flavour to reach for when you need a little pick me up in the morning. The coffee granules add a little crunch to the bite and the mocha flavour is not overwhelming like other coffee bars on the market. The balance between the rich, smooth and creamy dark chocolate and coffee is sheer perfection and this flavour is sure to be a favourite choice amongst our readers. The Dark Chocolate 75% was very well received by our panel and a standout winner. If you have ever tried your hand at making dark chocolate at home, you will appreciate how extraordinarily difficult it is to create a smooth and well balanced bar with the right texture. The Dark Chocolate 75% strikes the perfect balance between creaminess, sweetness and luxurious melt in your mouth texture that it is sure to be the flavour that you will reach for time and time again.

Funky Fat Choc Hazelnut

Last, but certainly not least, is the Dark Chocolate 71% Hazelnut, which has a subtle nutty hazelnut flavour and is a lovely choice if you are in the mood for something nutty. Our panel loved all the flavours but the Dark Chocolate 75%, Coconut and Dark Chocolate 70% and Coffee were clear favourites.

The Funky Fat Choc line will appeal to all chocolate lovers but particularly to readers with diabetes, those who are following a low carb or keto lifestyle and those who are health conscious and seek out food items with healthy and clean ingredients.

Belly Armor Belly Band by RadiaShield


Remember the days of snail mail, rotary phones and IBM PC’s? These days we have technology at our fingertips to keep up with our fast paced lives, but it may come at a high price.

Microwave frequency exposure (that of Cell Phones, WiFi devices, and more) is a relatively new phenomenon: 100 years ago the background radiation was millions of times lower than it is now, and it is as recent as the mobile phone boom (~1990’s) that the modern, digitally pulsed signals have become ubiquitous in the Western world. Power frequency (50Hz in most of the world, 60Hz in North America) is given off by any appliance or transmission of AC (alternating current) electricity. Electrical wiring creates electric and magnetic power frequency fields throughout houses and other wired buildings, but these levels are usually very low unless there is a wiring fault. Many standard household goods will leak power-frequency EMFs due to poor design.  Some older homes have grounded metal conduit which can help shield us from this form of radiation.

Engineers look at radiation exposure in terms of intensity times duration ( I x D ).  We can work to limit both of these in our lives.

Duration may be the easiest to reduce simply by limiting the time we use our cell phones, laptops or stand near an operating microwave oven for example.
Intensity of all the radiation we are exposed to is more complex to measure and understand but some things you can do are:

  • Try to use lower radiation producing products.  Keep these products away from your body.  Radiation levels drop off at the Cube of the Distance so being twice as far from a radiation source reduces your exposure to 1/8th.
  • Shield yourself from the sources.  Concrete walls and even drywall can reduce the radiation passing through them, metal cladding including metal roofs work well.  Glass walls have low shielding in general.
  • Make sure your devices are properly grounded.  Many have built in shielding that works best when properly grounded.
  • Look for Low and Ultra-Low Radiation certified WiFi devices.  Many companies now promote the products that they make to these standards. You dont need a wireless router that can cover an entire city block for your home WiFi.  Buy the lowest radiation one you can find and locate it centrally.
  • Check the SAR rating of the cell phone you want to purchase.  Lower numbers, particularly under 0.5, are better. We love the the Galaxy Nexus S from Samsung. You won’t miss your iPhone (super high SAR) with this fully featured Android phone.
  • Use a headset or even speaker mode and keep your cell phone away from your body.
  • Turn off your Bluetooth – Use USB instead.
  • Replace Cordless phone with a regular wired phone.
  • Additional shielding ideas: In conjunction with the above recommendations, consider the Belly Armor Line of Radiation Protection Products.

Many expecting moms have jobs where they are surrounded by computers all day or are glued to their smartphone and laptop throughout the day for social reasons. For some interesting literature on Radiation During Pregnancy, please click here. To lessen exposure, why not invest in a few pieces from the Belly Armor Collection. We love the Belly Band line consisting of the Belly Band (for those who prefer a less snug fit) and the Belly Band Embrace (for those who prefer a snug fit). Each style is available in several color options and sizes. Since Belly Bands are so versatile and still very much in fashion, why not invest in one that also offers some protection against radiation? RadiaShield states the efficacy as follows: 99.9% Shielding Effectiveness (40-60dB). View the independent FCC-certified laboratory testing report on the Belly Armor Website.

No-one will ever know that you are wearing a state of the art belly band thanks to its brilliant design and silky material which feels lovely against your skin. We love the trendy rouching on the Belly Band which results in a very flattering fit over your bump. Belly bands are fantastic for covering up your belly under tops that are starting to creep up, allowing your to wear your tops for a longer period of time.The Belly Band is for expecting mothers who prefer less snugness around their belly and a looser fit. The pleated design makes it easy to adjust coverage vertically and discreetly cover unzipped pants as your belly grows.


The Belly Band is lined with RadiaShield® Fabric, a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. It shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves,canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure.

Instructions: Wear under or over clothes throughout your pregnancy, with larger side fully covering your belly.


The Belly Band from Belly Armor is ideal for those who are embarking on a preconception program. The Natural Fertility Prescription is an outstanding preconception couple that we encourage all couples to look into.
