Fats are essential for our bodies, to protect our organs, our cells are made from fatty acids, to nourish our brain and essential to create some hormones. Saturated fat has gotten a lot of bad rap in the last couple of years but this guy plays a role on creating strong cell membranes, to help calcium be incorporated efficiently into the bones, liver protection against toxins such as alcohol and for antimicrobial effects in our guts.
One of my favorite sources of healthy fats is coconuts (fun fact: coconuts are fruits, and so does avocados!) and this recipe coconut is one of the main stars!
How can we resist a coconut and chocolate combo? But I have to admit that growing up I used to hate this combination, including those almond joy candies because they were "healthier"...This story now makes me laugh for two reasons: almond joy, healthy? and just because now I absolutely love coconuts and chocolate together!
