Coconumt puree - my new "inside-fillers", Book tip: "coconut oil" with a lot of knowledge about the healing power of coconut and a super coconut and Superfoodies-source - the health food store Staudigl in Vienna.
Hi everybody! I'm back into Blogger life after a long Christmas break with a new post about a super vitamin-giving soup, which provides lots of energy and fresh nutrients for the cold season. A coconut celery soup that has it all: The celery plant has detox and healing powers, and coconut oil ensures the cellular water supply - and is therefore a real fountain of youth.
During my Christmas break I reda two very interesting books about the coconut:
These two books by Bruce Fife -
The author explains why the ingredients of coconut strengthens the immune system, and that the plant slows down the aging process. And the coconut oil has the ability to detoxify and heal a long list of health problems. In addition to all this knowledge about the brown fruit, you can also find recipes and many practical tips for the use of coconut products.
For me personally, coconut puree - processed either in a soup or in a smoothie - is something like an "inside-filler". I allways get the feeling, that it charges my inner batteries. Maybe this feeling is based upon the fact, that cocunut oil is good for the cellular water supply. I don't know - it' energizing and tasty anyway :-)
A super source for several coconut and other superfoods in organic quality is - for all of you who live in Vienna and Lower Austria - the health food store Staudigl in Vienna's historic center. Here you can find everything what your raw - and superfooddemands ever have been asking for: nuts, seeds, teas, superfoods - and not to forget several times a day freshly-mixed smoothies, juices and healthy snacks. Especially the Matcha-coconut-smoothie convinced me personally :-)

Superfood coconut: This is a prevention against many degenerative diseases, is effective against viruses, bacteria, fungi, boosts energy and the immune system, helps with weight loss, promotes digestion, prevents premature skin aging (according to Bruce Fife, "coconut oil").
Squeeze the lime and cut the vegetables into big cubes, process all ingredients in a blender to a creamy soup. Garnish with a few coriander leaves, slices of lime and celery cubes. You can enjoy the soup cold or slightly warmed (max.45 degrees).
