One of the world’s most amazing and versatile foods, coconut in all its forms can be used to replace less healthy fats and carbohydrates to create delicious recipes for every day. It is gluten free, high in protein and fibre, and rich in healthy fats, making it a hugely popular food choice as we grow more aware of the power of food to enhance our energy and health.
Coconut has wide ranging list of health benefits:
• coconut meat is rich in iron and a good source of potassium
• coconut oil includes lauric acid, an ingredient that strengthens the immune system; can help prevent heart disease, cancer, and diabetes; promotes weight loss; and is a beautifying ingredient used to treat psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, and other skin infections
• coconut flour is gluten free and commonly used in soups, pancakes, waffles, and baking—ideal for people with gluten intolerances and food allergies or for those simply wanting an alternative wheat-free ingredient
Featuring beautiful colour photography for each easy-to-make recipe, Coconut Every Day will introduce you to the great taste and nutritional benefits that come from cooking with coconut. Some recipes will bring coconut flavour to the fore, and some will use coconut milk, cream, oil, and flour to replace dairy and wheat. The versatility of coconut will have you turning to this book each day!
Recipes include morning kick-starts such as smoothies, granola, muffins, and pancakes; a wide variety of salads, soups, stews, curries, and everyday mains for lunch and dinner; and if you like desserts, you’ll find plenty of delicious recipes that incorporate gluten-free coconut flour.
Coconut Every Day will show you how to use this health-boosting ingredient in a whole new way!
