  • Coconut = What is all the fuss about?

    I'm a fan of coconut, LOVE the taste. I had previously avoided due to the fat content but since deciding to try this type of eating have started purchasing coconut milk and oil for cooking. I was reading a can of coconut milk this morning, and noticed values only next to the fat, sugar and sodium... nothing else... So what is so great about it nutritionally?

    The medium chain fats are great source of instant energy. They're a good source of other vitamins as well, such as manganese (which I personally find hard to get from other foods)

    And the variety.. coconut flour, milk, oil...

      Not to mention we form monolaurin from the lauric acid. Very useful for combating belligerent microorganism.
