Author shares belief in coconuts’ magic

CASUARINA resident Jenni Madison was urged to try coconut oil while suffering health complaints in Thailand.

The result was so good she launched a business, Coconut Magic, based around the versatile coconut, in 2011.

After several years of growing success, Ms Madison has shared many of her coconutty secrets in a new book, The Healthy Coconut.

While her first experience of coconut oil was as a straight shot, the book covers much more than its therapeutic digestive aid.

Alongside recipes galore are tips on how the oil can be used as a beauty product, and for your pets.

“It just takes them through the many, many versatile uses of coconut oil and really cleans out the home to create a toxic-free living environment,” Ms Madison said.

She wants the book to help readers create “beautiful, nutritious meals” without feeling like they’re missing out. It is available online and in stores.

Good to know

  • Despite bad publicity for its high level of saturated fats, coconut oil doesn’t contain the cholestrol of animal-based fats, and is stored in the body as energy, not fat.
