RECIPE TIPS
NUTRITION NOTES

The active oils in garlic work like an antibiotic, so are helpful for treating infections. Coconut helps to balance gut bacteria as it contains a type of fat called lauric acid, which inhibits bacteria and viruses. Limes are rich in vitamin C and help the liver to detoxify the body - the skin and zest are particularly potent.
