I’m sure you are quite aware by now that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Kelapo, we are launching our own campaign to Save the Coconuts!
I found this great recipe, designed specifically for people living with cancer. It is meant to be an easy snack mix to keep on hand to munch on, even if the patient isn’t feeling hungry. This snack mix is a good source of fiber is high in iron and folic acid. Plus, I replaced the butter in the recipe with coconut oil, which may support a healthy immune system!
