Coconut is one of the healthiest foods you can eat!  Coconut is a medium chain fatty acid which are easily digested and converted to energy instead of being stored as fat. Because of this, coconut aids in weight loss, helps to stimulate the metabolism and has amazing anti microbial properties. Try this coconut banana crepes recipe and experience its benefits today!

    Good day.Thanks for the good medical write ups and advice you give .I am a lover of fruit juice made at home which I really do enjoy not to mention the health benefits I gain but I would like to know more about the foam that gathers on the fresh juice,is it good for the body? If not how do I get rid of it ?

      When juicing, your juicer may produce foam in the juice. The amount of the foam/froth depends on the type of juicer you use and what you’re juicing. Masticating juicers produce less foam compared to centrifugal juicers. And fibrous fruits/vegetables produce more foam compared to those with less fiber.
      When a juicer or blender spins at high-speed, it captures more air that mixes with the juice, causing the juice to be frothy with foam. A good portion of this foam is just trapped air bubbles. Consuming more air can result in gas and bloating but overall, it’s totally up to you and your personal preference as to whether or not you consume this portion or not.

    Can you tell me more about coconut milk? My local store sells cartons of coconut and almond milk. Is this what you mean or is it something that comes in a can?

      I typically recommend the coconut milk that comes in a can because there typically aren’t as many added ingredients. You can see the coconut milk I personally use if you click on the “coconut milk” link in the ingredients list.

    I’m just a little confused. I’m attempting to do the healing foods plan to heal leaky gut. I noticed on the healing diet honey is not allowed but this recipe is listed under gut health. So should I have honey or not?

    I couldn’t figure out how to flip with spatula but used a plate the size of inside of the pan to turn crepe onto and then slid it back into pan and it worked fine, tasted great and was very filling!

    Thanks for the recipe. I might add a pinch of sea salt to bring out the flavors (this is especially helpful with sweet things, paradoxically), and a dash of cinnamon and cardamom.

      Hi Mistral, here are the substitutions for one egg: one egg = 1/2 mashed banana, 1/4 cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water; 1 tablespoon chia + 3 tablespoons water (allow both to sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken).

      Hi Krista, here are the egg replacements I recommend: one egg = ½ mashed banana, ¼ cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon chia + 3 tablespoon water (allow both to sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken).

    If “Food is Medicine” then you’re recipes should indicate the nutritional information as well as the Food facts and the glycemic index.
    When I cook I wash my hands thoroughly (soap warm water & I sing Happy Birthday 2x).
    I wash all my foods first in Cold Water and white Vinegar then in Cold Water (even eggs). All leftovers ate dated for 3 days.

      Hi Keith, I completely understand why you feel this way. My team and I are actually adding the nutritional information to the recipes now. Be sure to be on the lookout for this in the near future!

    I just tried making these and while they tend to stick to the pan they’re pretty good! Can they be frozen? Can the mix be frozen before cooking?
    Thank you.

    These are delicious. I used a full small banana. They came out great. My boyfriend with Crohns loves these and they are a definite safe food for him. We eat them plain with butter. They have a semi-sweet banana bread-like taste and consistency. They refrigerate and reheat very well. I’m normally very picky about any recipes that use flour substitutions or recipes that are paleo/scd/etc. These are something that I would make and eat regularly even if no one in my house had any diet restrictions, and I wouldn’t change them.
