Nutritionist and naturopathic physician Fife (director, Coconut Research Ctr.; The Coconut Oil Miracle) emphasizes the health benefits of coconut flour, a naturally low-carb and gluten-free substance. He details the various properties of coconut flour, provides general information on nutrition and maintaining a healthy diet, and offers tips on the use of coconut flour and an appendix of resources. The crux of the book is the compilation of numerous recipes using coconut flour for the preparation of such items as baked goods, breads, and main dishes. These recipes, in addition to lacking gluten, are also free of wheat, soy, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, and yeast. Of particular interest to those with gluten allergies or related dietary restrictions, this book may also appeal to nutrition and health food enthusiasts.
