One of the quickest ways to transport your senses to a tropical locale is to add a little coconut to your meals! Originating in the Southeast Asian islands, coconuts made their way to the USA and have been a beloved fruit, flavor, and garnish ever since. They’re not only delicious, but high in fiber, good fats, and the water inside is super hydrating and good for your skin!
Here’s a couple of our favorite ways to add coconut to your diet:
