Use the butt of a big knife and pierce the top of the coconut in a circle around the top. You need to use a bit of force so don’t be afraid to real whack the coconut. You’ll have bits of shell and juice flying everywhere so it can get a bit messy. Once you have pierced all around use the tip of the knife to pop open the top by placing it just under the pierced shell and twisting until the top of shell breaks fully away from the base.
Pour coconut water into jar or jug (if the water is pink, chuck it, it’s off)
Scoop Meat out
Using a dessert spoon start scooping all the meat out. Don’t forget about the coconut at the top just under the opening.
Place Meat and about 1/4 Cup of coconut water into blender
Blend on high for 3 minutes until it resembles a thick goopy sludge. (You may meed less or more water depending on how much meat you scraped out but 1/4 cup is a good start)
Set your Dehydrator Up (use a pre cut sheet of baking paper or a specialised mat if you have a mesh or slotted base to your dehydrator. Alternatively you could use your oven)
Set Dehydrator to 55c- Set oven to lowest possible setting
Pour sludgy coconut mix onto dehydrator tray or oven tray. Spread evenly to 1/4 inch thick (you don’t want it too thin or thick)
Dehydrate for 3-6 hours (I checked mine at 4 hours and it was still a little sticky so i flipped it and left for another two hours)
The finished product resembles a fruit leather like wrap.
Fill with some fresh organic lettuce, pulled pork or roast chicken, homemade mayo and fresh heritage cherry tomatoes and enjoy
Keep Eating Real Food.
Took a short break over the christmas break to somewhere that is home to me. Rolling waves, sea breeze, kids playing, people fishing…it’s harmonious I think given the chance I would move to the ocean full time and never take advantage of its purity and humbleness.
It’s often that we get bogged down by the stresses and it takes A LOT to get out of a rut.
Now my auto immune disease was my RUT. How could I get past this impact on my life?! Nothing I ate was any good for me so what was I to do but wallow in self pity.
When I started the Low-Fodmap diet and started looking into what Sue Shepard had published I realised that my hadn’t ended and part of my healing was that emotional burden. Not believing that you can achieve what you dream of is the first hurdle in wellness. If you are skeptical and if are not willing to commit then you are doing yourself injustice. I blamed everything before I started to focus on what I could do for MYSELF. Every diet didn’t work for me but I never fully committed to it. Now I look back and face palm myself and think who was I kidding.
So today I’d like to introduce an inspiration. Jess Ainscough-The Wellness Warrior. Read her story, follow her blog and enrich yourself with her passion and knowledge into all things awesome.
