Food is Medicine...Foods with cool nutrients...

Here are some foods with cool properities... Food really is medicine and I'll show you that here!!!

1. Pineapple... An amazing fruit... I LOVE pineapple. Did you know pineapple has an enzyme in it called bromelien that helps you digest protein. If you are on a high protein diet or just feel bloated try adding some pineapple in your day see if it helps.
Tip: If it hurts your mouth try blending it!
Ways to use it: In smoothies with greens, coconut, banana. In salads with some nuts and seeds. On its own. With a couple tablespoons of coconut oil or butter.


2. Cilantro... Is great for detoxing heavy metals.  Which is so cool you feel cleaner inside when you regularly add fresh herbs to your diet. Also, it helps your skin, bonus!
Ways to use it: Guacamole!!!, Salad, Green Smoothies, Juices, Wraps


3. Coconut.... Has something called MCT's which is Medium Chain Triglycerides which help metabolism. Coconut also is not digested like most fats, science is starting to show it digests more like a carb.
Ways to use it: Coconut butter with fruit, Coconut oil can really go on Anything (I prefer butter or shreds for fiber and closer to whole food), Shreds as a cereal or on fruit or cereal, Coconut water after exercise...Great electrolytes.


Here are three if you like this I'll do more later!
Do you use any of these foods?
Have a great day!!!
