Coconuts are Sacred to Ganesha
Ganesha is a Hindu God that is considered the Remover of Obstacles.
We all have obstacles we need to break through in order to achieve success.
Ganesha's elephant head symbolizes the soul, the supreme reality of human existence, and his body signifies (Maya) mankind's earthly existence. His elephant head symbolizes wisdom and the trunk represents Om, the sound of cosmic reality.
Ganesha appreciates good food. He likes mostly oily and sweet food, fruit and coconuts.
Do you use coconut oil?
It has been controversial in some circles due to the fact that the fatty acids are about 90% saturated. But coconut oil has a high concentration of lauric acid (which is saturated), and it makes up around 40% of its total fat content.
'Lauric acid is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound with antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. It can be used on the skin for fungal conditions' (evidence-based resource) and I've even used this along with specific essential oils for an ear treatment for my dog. (Disclaimer: I'm no medical Dr or veterinarian and I urge you to contact yours before trying any of these things)- I urge you to empower yourself with knowledge. There are many more benefits. Try THIS article for more information about the many benefits of coconut oil.
In cooking, coconut oil has a high smoke point, which means it resists oxidation at high temperatures (Olive oil has a much lower smoke point and is best used for low temperature cooking or to be used as is (in dressings, etc.)
Why not try Coconut Oil-Based BULLETPROOF COFFEE to start your day? (you can mix with grass-fed butter or for a vegan version use pure coconut oil.)
2 cups of the best quality coffee
1 to 2 tb of Coconut Oil
OPTIONAL: 2 TB unsalted grass fed butter
Brew your coffee as you normally would. I love the coffee press.
In any blender, blend coffee, (butter), coconut oil until it becomes frothy on the top like your favorite coffee-shop treat.
Pour coffee into a pretty cup or mug and flavor as desired. To me, it's great as is.
