3 Coconut

In Asia, coconuts are a major staple in the daily diet. These countries have lower incidents of heart disease and high cholesterol. Coconut has a bundle of health benefits waiting for you beneath its tough exterior. It is also easy to work into your diet. It has nearly 6 times the amount of fiber of oat bran.

Cooking and baking with coconut flour can help you work it into your diet. You can also top a salad with coconut shreds and find other creative ways to work it in. With plenty of fiber, omega-6 fatty acids, and selenium, coconut is a delicious way to reap the healthy benefits of these nutrients.
