 Healthy food happy people - Chantal Voets

Hello, nice of you to come and take glance at my recipe review. Here, I have made a fine selection of recipes and chefs. Amanprana and/or I has/have a special bond with each of them. We, for example, have cooked together and have the same vision of eating. Healthy, tasty and refreshing meals without fuss. Tasty meals to be healthy and happy. Ayurvedic cuisine, macrobiotics, raw food, vegan cooking and proper food combinations have inspired my recipes.

In the meantime, I have put together quite a few recipes. From appetizers to pancakes and from delicious snacks to smoothies. The emphasis is on pure and natural, without refined nutrients. Nutrition is your best medicine!

Coconut flour

Coconut flour for a healthy, high-fibre diet – without gluten!

Health begins with healthy digestion, because healthy digestion means smooth bowel movements, which ensure that waste leaves the body in a timely manner, and it also means food is properly absorbed, so that the right amount of energy is supplied to all bodily processes. The result? A healthy body and a healthy mind. What do you need to do to get such great digestion? Eat fibre - ideally, coconut fibre.

Coconut flour is part of the soluble fibre group. Fruit, legumes, oats, nuts, seeds ... they all contain soluble fibre. Soluble fibre feeds the bacteria in our gut. It makes sure good gut bacteria thrive and moulds and infections are beaten back. And when good gut bacteria have the upper hand, you know that you have healthy gut flora and food will be absorbed properly into your body.

Fibre such as coconut fibre (coconut flour) is essential for a high-fibre diet

Just like insoluble fibre (the fibre found in grains, for example), soluble fibre such as coconut fibre absorbs a lot of water. Because of this, eating lots of fibre ensures that intestinal contents are more bulky, which stimulates bowel function. With a high-fibre diet, waste is expelled from the body more quickly. Which is good, because otherwise it would poison the body and cause all sorts of chronic ailments.

So you'd certainly be well advised to eat foods which are high in fibre, but make sure you don't leave out coconut fibre. It contains fewer calories and more fibre than other high-fibre foods and proteins which promote mineral absorption.

Coconut fibre (coconut flour) is a gluten-free form of fibre that you can use in any recipe

If you have a gluten intolerance, Coconut flour is always a good choice. Coconut flour is gluten free. Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (such as wheat, rye, spelt and barley). People who have a gluten intolerance are intolerant to a specific part of the gluten and can only eat foods which don't contain gluten. If they do eat gluten, it triggers an autoimmune reaction which damages the intestinal villi in the small intestine. The result? The intestine can no longer absorb food properly and the body suffers shortages. With coconut fibre, such people have nothing to fear.

In addition, coconut flour is really enormously versatile in use, as you can see from the recipes, and that is definitely not an understatement. You can add coconut fibre to smoothies. You can add it to cakes, use it as a binder in sauces, like in Chantal Voets' stuffed mushrooms recipe, or use it as a thickener in soups. Coconut flour makes it easy for you to transform your diet overnight, into one that's high in fibre.

Note: 10 grams of coconut fibre per meal is enough to ensure good bowel motions. 1 tablespoon of coconut fibre contains approximately 10 grams.
