Coconut has recently become a staple in a balanced diet, and for good reason! It’s high in fiber, which can lower blood pressure and reduce the risk for heart disease.
It’s also high in healthy saturated fats, aka, “good” cholesterol. All saturated fats should be taken in small amounts only of course.
The omega-3 content is especially beneficial – it’s a natural pain reliever and has great benefits for your cardiovascular health.
Maple syrup is one of the most natural sources of sweetener available. This is not processed at all.
