If you have Candida and are looking to rebalance your gut flora, coconut oil and coconut milk are mild antifungals that can improve our gut health and prevent any yeast colonies from getting out of control.
Coconut-based ingredients (like oil, milk, and flour) are rich in healthy fats and nutrient-dense. Combined with the chicken, almonds, and some healthy vegetables, they make a filling meal that will provide lots of healthy energy for all the family.
