Coconuts remind me of sunshine, warm weather, palmtrees, blue waters and all that which I currently greatly desire!!! Whenever I got to visit my relatives in Trinidad, the first things that I ALWAYS immediately request are coconut water, sipped directly from the just-opened young coconut and a chicken curry roti, which I will definitely talk about in great detail later on. Once I have my fill of those two things….I know that I have arrived and can look forward to the rest of my stay.
The coconut is also often referred to as the tree of life, and is classifies as “functional food” due to the enormous health properties it contains. I have been using dried coconut to make granola bars, muesli, cakes, cookies and sprinkle over my smoothies.
