Coconut is a miracle plant. Not only do I use coconut oil in my skin care products, I also like cooking with coconut milk.

Coconuts have a great nutritional profile and contain Vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6. They also contain iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. In addition they are a rich source of fiber.

In cooking, I usually opt for the Trader Joe’s light version for 2 reasons:

  1.  It has a lot less unnecessary fat
  2. The can is BPA-free. Remember, BPA LOVES fat (even reduced fat).

When I was recently at a restaurant in Laguna Beach I enjoyed a simple coconut rice. However in my version I added some veggies and a dash of nutmeg to make it more satisfying.
