Is This Recipe Good For My Nervous System?
How can something so tasty be good for you? Our kitchen team hand-picke naturally flavorful ingredients that deliver on taste while nourishing you nervous system.
Here’s why it’s good for you:
- Rich in Healthy Fats: Coconut yogurt and macadamia nuts provide a healthy dose of monounsaturated fats, which may support brain health and the nervous system.
- Digestive-Friendly: Probiotics found in coconut yogurt promote a healthy gut microbiome. This may indirectly benefit the nervous system as there is a strong connection between gut health and brain health.
- Antioxidant-Rich: Mango and shredded coconut are loaded with antioxidants, which have the potential to protect nerve cells from oxidative stress and inflammation.
- Balanced Blood Sugar: With the optional addition of honey or maple syrup, you can tailor the sweetness level to your liking while still keeping it relatively low on the glycemic index.
- Nutrient-Dense: Nuts, especially macadamia nuts, are packed with essential nutrients like magnesium and vitamin B6, both of which are crucial for nerve function.
Can I Use a Dairy-Based Yogurt?
At RegulateCo we typically follow a Paleo framework, excluding most types of dairy. However, we acknowledge some people thrive with the addition of dairy products. Feel free to swap the coconut yogurt for raw milk yogurt if tolerated or a full-fat Greek yogurt.
Can I Make This Nut-Free?
This recipe should be considered a template for your creativity. You can easily replace the nuts with freeze-dried fruit, seeds or if you’re feeling extra decadent, some dark chocolate chips. Likewise, you can add different fruits.
