Coconut Goodness

12 Mar

Coconut -Such a controversial wonder ! Whats my take on it and what do I know?

Coconut oil is a great healthy additive and alternative to butter in baking things like muffins or bliss balls. They add flavour and a great health component. It is a saturated fat but a good one.The fats in coconut are metabolised by the liver and used then as energy and not stored as fat. It is also antibacterial and anti fungal making it good fodder for the gut and especially for treating parasites and candida. It has a high smoke point making it a good oil to cook with.

Coconut water has a high electrolyte content making it great for re hydrating especially post exercise, in hot climates and during illness. And yes it would be good if you have a hangover ! It tastes better mixed with citrus juices or in a freshly squeezed juice of your choice or just on its own.
Dont forget you can also use it on your hair and skin and it is said to have an 8% SPF. Noursihing for the skin and also good for skin issues like eczema.
Its a good alrounder as you can see.
