Hopefully you’ve gotten the memo by now: Fat is not the enemy.
For a long time (read: the past three-plus decades!) we believed that eating fat made us fat and gave us heart disease, but the pendulum is definitely swinging. Most health experts now agree that “healthy fat” isn’t the oxymoron it once was. In fact, if a healthy body and mind are what you’re after, you simply must consume good fat!
This is great news for the mighty coconut, a fruit whose meat is largely composed of healthy saturated fat (again, not an oxymoron!).
