Metabolism-Boosting Thai Coconut Soup


 They may be difficult to crack, but coconuts are worth the trouble for their numerous health benefits. While coconut meat is high in saturated fat, the fat is composed of medium-chain fatty acids, which are more quickly broken down than long-chain fatty acids, and are actually thought to help lower cholesterol. The meat is also high in fiber, potassium, and manganese (which helps your body metabolize fat and protein).
