Some of the most delicious foods can be made using coconut recipes. Rice, flour, water, chicken, and crab are only a few of the most popular ingredients used in coconut recipes. They can be used for a coconut oil diet or anti Candida diet. They have antifungal agents that help in destroying yeast cells. This is only one of the many health benefits.
Coconut Flour Crust
*1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut meat
*3 tablespoons butter
Mix desiccated meat and butter together. Press mixture into a small pie cooking dish. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or until golden.
Coconut Yogurt Shake
*3 tablespoons pumpkin
*1 cup plain yogurt (whole milk yogurt not fat free)
*½ cup whole coconut milk
*1 large banana (if just beginning the anti candida diet or if you have problems with sweet fruit, omit)
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
*small handful of crushed ice (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until a smooth consistency is reached. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
*4 pieces of chicken with or without bone
*salt to taste
*pepper to taste
*shredded coconut flour or flakes
Put salt, pepper, egg in a bowl. Put flour in separate bowl. Dip each piece of chicken in egg batter, then cover with flour and add to hot skillet or wrap in foil to seal in juices and cook in oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Note: When it comes to the anti candida diet, every person is different. You should change the above coconut recipes to suit whatever stage you are in, in your treatment process.
Coconut Water: should not be confused with coconut milk. The water is actually sweeter than the milk. It is the liquid that pours out of the coconut if it were to be punctured. You can hear the water if you shake it. It is highly nutritious and contains electrolytes which can quench thirst on a hot day.
Coconut Oil: is extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) tree. Throughout the tropical world it has provided the primary source of fat in the diets of millions of people for generations. It has various applications in food, medicine, and industry. Use food-grade organic oil for sauteing and baking. Most of the coconut recipes on this page use the oil when sauteing. Hydrogenated oil should be avoided.
Desiccated Coconut Meat: is the dried white meat of coconut. Buy unsweetened desiccated meat when using the coconut recipes on this page.
Creamed Coconut: is the unsweetened dehydrated fresh meat of a mature nut ground to a semi-solid white creamy paste. It is sold in the form of a hard white block which can be stored at room temperature. It has an intense flavor.
Creamed coconut is traditionally added to Indian, Thai, and Asian recipes to enrich curries and sauces. In the west it can usually be found in the refrigerated section and is primarily used in confectionery items, soups, curries, ice cream, and sauces. Not to be confused with the related coconut cream, which is a liquid. It's also used in many anti candida diet coconut recipes
Coconut Milk: is a sweet, milky white cooking base derived from the meat of a mature nut which is high in coconut fiber. The color and rich taste of the milk can be attributed to the high oil content and sugars. The term coconut milk is not the same as coconut water (coconut juice), which is the naturally-occurring liquid found inside the hollow nut. You can make your own milk by opening the nut.
Coconut is very versatile and regularly used in many diets. The history of the nut dates back centuries and still today people all over the world use it for skin and hair. Coconut recipes call for various preparations of coconut from its milk to its water. Even coconut pie can be made healthy by using Stevia sweetener instead of sugar.
Extra virgin coconut oil is one of the best oils for baking because it can tolerate higher temperatures without releasing toxic byproducts. Unrefined oil or cold pressed oil depends on the method of extraction. The unrefined, cold pressed, organic virgin coconut oil has a higher fatty acid content and nutritional value than refined oil. People of South America, Asia, and Africa consume coconut meat daily (sometimes several times a day) to get the healing benefits it offers.
One of the most important features is it's medicinal properties. There is a very small percentage of people who are allergic to coconut and have a reaction but that is very rare. Coconut milk contains lauric acid and gives off an antimicrobial property which is good for the anti Candida diet because it protects against parasites, fungus, and bacteria. These are conditions present in people with yeast infection symptoms. Lauric acid is also found in mother's milk.
