There are times when your body runs on that "flight or fight" mode for way too long.   This causes the pH levels in the deeper digestive system to fall. That's when the coconut can step in to heal. It is capable of ridding toxins, helping to purify the digestive system. Tender coconut simply balances acid levels and cools the system. This makes it superior to other herbs and fruits that can cool down the body.

Coconut Cooking 101

 

  • You can drink the liquid that comes out of a coconut, but don't use it in cooking.

  • Fresh coconut is always best, but if it is not readily available, you can generally find good quality dried, grated coconut and coconut chips in natural food stores. Use the unsweetened type, which is free of chemical ingredients.

  • Tender coconuts, or ones with pulp and water, are generally available at grocery stores. Slash off the top with a sharp knife (the store will sometimes help open coconuts), insert a straw, and enjoy!

  • Use coconut milk the same day. Grate fresh coconut and blend with a little warm water. Squeeze to get the rich first extraction. Add more water re-blend and squeeze again to get a thinner second extraction. Strain.

  • The hot days of summer are great for cooking-and cooling-with coconut.

  • Coconut oil is so yummy for your hair, face, and body!
