Oliver McCabe's Spicy Mango Coconut Prawn Dish with short grain brown rice, as seen on the Today show (Tuesday, January 19 2016).

Note: Nut, gluten, dairy and sugar free. 

High in essential fats, protein, calcium and dietary fibre.

Foods like garlic, onions, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, camomile, lavender, ginger, lemons and cayenne pepper will help your body rid itself of excess yeast. Coconut’s medium chain fats are easily absorbed and are used as an energy source, which increases the body’s metabolism. Always use your coconut oil within a month for the best freshness. I love using turmeric, as it has an amazing anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Brown Rice is full of calcium, magnesium and b vitamins plus lots of fibre which helps remove stagnancy and waste from the digestive tract.
