How Does This Ayurvedic Food Improve Wellness?
CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
A Boost For Your Energy
While most nourishing foods depress metabolism, coconut is unusual in its ability to support the thyroid and improve metabolism. Coconut oil contains healthy fats and fatty acids that are quickly and easily absorbed, digested, metabolized and utilized by your body, ideal for nourishing the elderly and those debilitated from disease. Coconut's stimulating richness restores your vigor and vitality with a nutty aroma that gratifies the senses, a nourishing alternative to coffee that treats the root cause of exhaustion without the jitters of caffeine!
Strengthen Your Liver & Soften Your Emotions
Coconut has a luxuriant richness that feeds you and your liver. Ayurveda suggests that an agitated liver should be moistened with fats, and pleased by sweet, delightful aromas like rose petals and coconut. By nature an ambitious organ, the liver falls victim to intense, hot blooded emotions and pitta internal heat conditions. Coconut replenishes a liver deficient in fats, and has special cooling properties to soothe an overheated liver.

I shredded a the meat from a coconut, can I use that in the recipes? Or do I need to do something to it before it is recipe ready?
That's wonderfully fresh and it is recipe ready.
What about coconut flour? Since it's high in fiber and protein, I'm going to guess it's near tri-doshic? Or at least, better for kapha and pitta?
