Overview: The Health Benefits of Coconut
I’ve touted quite a few other foods as being “ultra-healthy” or “true superfoods.” But the health benefits of coconut truly gives those other foods – yes, even avocado and kale – a run for their money! This is because coconut helps such a wide array of health conditions, and it also serves as an incredibly rich source of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and fiber.
One thing I love about coconuts are their versatility. Organic shredded coconut “meat” makes a great pancake topping or muesli breakfast cereal ingredient. But you can also enjoy this fruit in the form of refreshing coconut water, coconut milk, and coconut oil.
In addition to being edible/drinkable, coconut oil is exceptionally good for topical application to your skin and hair. In fact, studies have shown that coconut oil can replenish dry skin with moisture. Furthermore, it can even serve as a natural remedy for eczema!

If you’ve ever picked a health nut’s brain, you probably know that their “healthy eating” code includes a nutritious breakfast everyday. Of course there are several nutrients necessary for a breakfast to qualify as a “superfood,” but fiber is definitely one of them. In this post, we’ll look specifically at high fiber breakfast foods.

The benefits of hemp seeds are far-reaching, extending to both physical and mental health.

It’s an incredibly versatile food, so there are many different ways to work it into your diet. It also has amazing benefits for your skin, hair, and body.

This could inadvertently lead to nutritional deficiencies, which are actually quite common in vegans who don’t make a conscious effort to eat a full, well-rounded diet.
