So today, I will be sharing a plant-based spring lunch bowl recipe. This recipe has a very catchy, tropical name – it’s called the Coconut Beet Bowl. The tenderness of coconuts and the pink tint of beet are the highlights of this coconut spring bowl. Thanks to the presence of these ingredients, the Coconut Beet Bowl not only looks ravishing but tastes just as amazing too!
Now you know the drill – we begin with why I have chosen the recipe’s ingredients and then go ahead with the recipe. So let’s understand the key elements – coconut and beet a little better:
Every element of this delicious tropical fruit – be its water, milk, flesh, and even oil – is packed with high nutritional benefits. Coconut is an integral ingredient in almost every other Asian delicacy for ages – however, its popularity in the west has increased only lately.
Fruits are usually known to be high on carbs, but coconut here is an exception – it provides more (healthy) fats. It is also a great source of protein, minerals, and vitamin B. As it is low in carbs and high in fiber and fats, coconut also helps regulate blood sugar levels. So if we want to be inc control of our blood sugar levels, we should regularly include moderate amounts of coconut in our diet.
Coconuts are powerhouses of a range of antioxidants such as gallic acid, caffeic acid, salicylic acid, and p-coumaric acid. Each of these elements counters free radicals in our body. The presence of this army of antioxidants also helps protect our cells from damage and death caused either by oxidative stress.
If the bright color of beet is what appeals to you the most, wait until I list out its immense health benefits! You’ll be a fan of this root vegetable right away! Beets contain inorganic nitrates and pigments, which are essential plant compounds offering numerous benefits.
Ailments of the heart are directly linked to blood pressure, so it is advisable to treat the root cause; blood pressure. The food we eat has a significant impact on our blood pressure levels, which is why we need to include more nitrate-rich foods. And before you ask me which foods are rich in nitrates, let me tell you – beets!
Many lifestyle diseases are the outcome of inflammation. Including anti-inflammatory foods in our diet is the best way to deal with this health issue. And again, beet has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. The fiber in beet also works wonders for the health of our gut. These roots are full of water and fiber, making them our best friend when looking for our Happy Weight!
