Coconut Fried Chicken:
Coconut fried chicken is a great replacement for our society’s love of deep fried chicken. This is grain-free and low carb and loaded with good fats, anti-oxidants and clean proteins. Coconut can handle the high heat that is used to fry effectively and although most the anti-oxidants in the herbs are damaged with the high temperatures they do offer protection against the formation of carcinogenic chemicals.
Eat these with some fresh, organic veggies to get more anti-oxidants with this meal. The anti-oxidants will help neutralize any of the free radicals that were formed during the high temperature cooking process.
