Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.

Brown Coconut (one)

Life might be considered too short to crack a coconut. However, the benefits of doing so outweigh the drawbacks. Coconuts are high in a mineral called manganese responsible for bone health. The fat content of coconut is high most of it is saturated fat. This high fat content makes coconuts unique and also a tad confusing. Coconuts are usually classed as a fruit. Fruits are not usually high in fat content. However, coconuts are also nuts and this explains their high fat content.

The nutritional benefits of including coconut in your food intake, relies on eating the white coconut meat/flesh raw. If the flesh of the coconut undergoes any form of processing, some of the nutritional content is drastically altered. An example of this is the calorie content. If the coconut is dried, and then presented in new say such as flakes, then the calorie content virtually doubles. That might not suit everyones needs.

But, If you are looking to increase your intake of fibre or protein this doubling effect is likely to be embraced. Natural coconuts contain a modest amount of natural sugar. The most common way of altering coconut is by adding extra sugars is added as part of the processing cycle. This is likely to be the case of each and every product that features coconut in its list of ingredients. It is wise to check the labels before you commit.

Sales of coconut related products are booming and this is due to their perceived health benefits.

A homemade version of a popular coconut snack can be made using the natural coconut flesh alongside a small piece of chocolate with 70% cocoa content. This combination is very hard to beat.

Avocado

Once considered exotic, nowadays avocados are all over the place: showing up in recipes for salads, smoothies, sandwiches and dips. When eaten in a salad or as a side dish avocados are treated as a vegetable.

Valuable source of Vitamin E, B6 and Potassium. There is some confusion that leads to concern that this delicious, nutritious produce is fattening. They do contain fat but not the kind of fat that is harmful. The fat found in avocados is monounsaturated fat and it has been suggested that eating foods ,such as avocados, that contain the right kind of fat, lowers cholesterol and may even lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Enjoy avocados without the feelings of guilt usually associated with other high fat foods especially chocolate, biscuits and cake each of which contain the wrong kind of fat (saturated fat) and often lead to common health complaints especially when consumed in large quantities. If you are going to include saturated fat in your diet it is probably best to consume butter, coconut oil and palm oil because these fats are usually consumed in far smaller quantities.

This larger, smooth skinned variety is typically eaten with bread, especially hard dough bread or with bulla a round basic firm sweet cake, When eaten with bread and bulla avocados function as cheese or butter.
