You may want to consider coconut as a regular part of your diet. There are endless ways to indulge! The best way to experience the many health-giving gifts of coconut is to try virgin coconut oil.
I truly believe Virgin coconut oil is one of the smartest oils you can eat. Rich in lauric acid, coconut oil contains NO trans fat, strengthens your immune system and boosts your metabolism! I am not diagnosing jut sharing my opinion.
Also, by substituting Coconut Flour in some baking recipes, you can literally recreate your favorite treats, turning them into delicious guilt-free health promoting foods.
Coconut flour which has been defatted and then finely ground into a powder has a very similar consistency to wheat flour. However, that’s where the similarities begin and end. Coconut flour is unlike any other consisting of 14% coconut oil and 58% dietary fiber! The remaining 28% consists of water, protein, and carbohydrate. If you haven’t tried coconut flour yet, here are some more excellent reasons to start:
·Coconut Flour is gluten-free and hypoallergenic. With as much protein as wheat flour, coconut flour has none of the specific protein in wheat called “gluten”. This is an advantage for a growing percentage of the population who have allergies to gluten or a wheat sensitivity.
·Coconut Flour consists of the highest percentage of dietary fiber( 58%) found in any flour. Wheat bran has only is 27% fiber.
