Coconut – A Good Source of Fiber

Shredded Coconut is a great Gluten Free alternative to breadcrumbs and it’s a good source of Fiber with 3 tablespoons containing 3g (Bob’s Red Mill Unsweetened Shredded Coconut).  For those eating a gluten free diet, it may be harder for you to get the recommended amount of Fiber each day so this is a great addition to your diet!  Medical experts recommend about 25g of Fiber each day for women and 38 for men.  Yet, the average person gets only about 15g.  I tracked my Fiber intake and it ranged from 10g to 20g, so it’s something that I am looking to improve on and get more consistency with.

You can add coconut to smoothies, to oatmeal, to peanut butter toast, to salads, and so much more!  In this recipe, I have combined the coconut with some Gluten Free Breadcrumbs, but you can either replace with regular breadcrumbs or more coconut.

Store Shredded Coconut in the freezer so it lasts longer – up to 6 months!
