Soothe Your StressYou'll feel more at peace simply by enjoying this dessert. Tapioca contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are both critical for brain function. If you feel irritable, the nourishing fats of coconut milk can calm your mind. Saffron is a calming aromatic. Make this dessert at the end of a stressful day or enjoy as a reprieve from high pressure situation.
Nourishing for Late SummerThe heat of summer and sweating seems to sap your strength, tax your blood sugar, and deplete vital electrolytes. Late summer and early fall tend to be astringent and dry. The richness of tapioca and coconut milk restores sweetness and oileyness to your blood, bringing your energy levels back. Lemon's sourness restores juiceyness to a dried out system.
Strengthen & Restore Your BodyTapioca is starch extract derived from the cassava plant. Like many starches, tapioca is a nurturing remedy for weakness and debility. Because it is so easy to digest, tapioca encourages healthy weight gain after an illness. Tapioca and coconut milk strengthen your body as it prepares for colder winter months ahead.
ContraindicationsIf your tapioca is not fully cooked, it will continue to absorb water from your digestive tract and dry out your colon. The result is constipation with dry, hard stools. If the tapioca is fully cooked, you don't need to worry about this.

His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion.
