Side Dishes: Green Beans with Coconut
Green Beans, or String Beans, are very low in calorie (only 40 calories in 4oz. / 1 cup), but are a great source of Vitamin K, C and A as well as Manganese and Potassium. Moreover they contain a high amount of fiber which helps in lowering high blood pressure.
Fresh coconut milk is full of Lauric Acids which makes it anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial as well as anti-viral. Coconut milk can help to fight off all sorts of viruses and help to lower cholesterol as well as to prevent cancer.
