This Coconut Paleo Cereal is seriously delicious! Most of all, this paleo coconut cereal is the easiest recipe you will ever find when it comes to making your own paleo cereal. You just need a bag of unsweetened coconut flakes (like this) and a couple more ingredients that, most likely, you already have in your cupboard. With this cereal, you are not only enjoying a delicious breakfast but also getting all the nutrients that coconut offers.
It’s the most versatile fruit around. You can make coconut milk, flour, sugar, butter, soap, cosmetic products and most of all, coconut oil — one of the greatest superfoods on earth. Coconuts are a good source of potassium, iron, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc and the important antioxidant selenium. Magnesium, is a mineral that activates over 300 biological reactions in our body. Coconuts may also help with weight loss, heart health, allergies, diabetes, immunity, energy, athletic performance, mental and neurological health. Eating coconuts also can lead to strong, healthy bones and teeth. It does this by improving the body’s ability to absorb calcium and magnesium. One of the coolest facts about coconuts – coconut water is one of the biggest sources of electrolytes out there and is almost identical in composition to human blood plasma. In fact, coconut oil was used widely in the Pacific during World War II. Since blood plasma supplies were limited, it was very common to use coconut water from young coconuts as emergency plasma transfusions for soldiers who were injured.
