In the latest edition of the best healthy coconut foods, the Food Research Council’s Dr. Kate Copley reviews the best snacks, snacks ideas and meals to try if you are looking to boost your overall intake of good fats and protein.
Coconut flour, snacks and protein: the best in the world?
1.1 The best low-fat coconut flour You may think you can get away with just about any type of coconut flour for this type of recipe, but there’s no doubt that this flour has a lot going for it. 1 1/2 cups coconut flour (or any other low-carb flour) 1/4 cup organic honey 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 1/16 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted 1/1 cup organic coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk, if you have one) 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/5 cup coconut sugar 1 tablespoon agave nectar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/7 teaspoon cinnamon salt and pepper to taste 2.
Coconut milk: the cream of the coconut This coconut milk can be a bit pricey, but it’s really good for most of us.
We’ve used it in our baked goods, in the coconut oil used to make coconut milk and even as a sweetener in our chocolate.
It’s a very natural, creamy source of nutrition and also the healthiest way to make these snacks.
You can find it in most grocery stores and on Amazon.
Vegan coconut flour: the new standard?
3.1 Vegan coconut meal This coconut meal is the best source of protein and has a little bit of the texture of whole coconut, but the coconut fiber makes it the most nutritious.
The texture of this coconut meal also makes it super easy to mix and mince.
The best part is that it’s gluten-free and vegan.
We think that’s really important for anyone with a gluten-sensitive or autoimmune condition.
Coconut oil: the next best thing?
4.1 Coconut oil This is another good source of energy.
It also has a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which is great for people with heart disease, arthritis, depression, or other conditions where the omega-6 fatty acids may be harmful.
You don’t need to use this oil exclusively, but we’d recommend you use some.
4 1/6 cups coconut oil or any other coconut oil (but not vegetable oil) 1 cup organic maple syrup 1 cup water 1/10 teaspoon baking powder 1/15 teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons coconut oil 4 tablespoons organic honey 3 tablespoons almond flour (optional) 5.
Coconut butter: the king of the nuts It’s easy to forget about the power of coconut butter, but if you don’t want to get too creative with it, coconut butter is probably the best way to go.
It has all the nutrients of coconut oil plus protein.
It can be found at the health food store, but you can also buy it online.
Here’s what you need to know about coconut butter.
1 cup coconut butter 1/20 cup organic almond milk 1 cup liquid coconut water (like almond milk, water, or almond juice) 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds (or flax seed meal) 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 5.
Vegan butter: all the benefits of vegan butter This vegan butter is a good source the whole coconut but it doesn’t contain any refined sugar or any artificial ingredients.
The most important thing is that the vegan butter contains no saturated fat, and the butter has all of the omega 3 fatty acids that are essential for the health of the heart.
It is a very good source for a variety of health benefits.
