In moderation. I'm afraid I don't eat anything that contains wheat so cakes aren't part of my diet but a coconut cake would be better than many others. Obviously dessicated coconut doesn't have the fat content of coconut oil but it's pretty high in fat and MOST of the fat is medium chain triglycerides that those with AD will find easier to metabolise.Do you think dessicated coconut is good?
Really home made cakes are much better because you can use real eggs and you may be able to sneak in some wholewheat flour (reduce the glycaemic index a bit)It's sold in packets as an ingredient to put in cakes. I wonder why it's impossible to buy coconut cake in the major UK supermarkets. I've been making coconut fairy cakes to take to my mum, but it would be nice if we could also get it ready made. Of course then they might contain other dodgy ingredients like that glucose-fructose syrup that is creeping into everything.
The older a cheese is the more Vitamin K it should contain so go for a vintage or mature cheddar from a traditional dairy that produces it's own cheese from raw milk. That way you will get a source of vitamin K and some good natural bacteria.How about cheddar cheese? Other cheeses? Full fat presumably?
Well I always make my own each week from raw milk that I collect from the dairy up the road. I use a full fat Greek Yoghurt for the starter culture but that's only when I need a new starter. Mostly it's just full cream raw milk, and some starter from the last batch. Most of the supermarkets do a reasonable 10% full fat greek yoghurt if you haven't yet got round to making your own. Once you do start making your own you wont bother with the bought stuff.What sort of yoghurt is best?
Well it depends on what you aim is.I presume that spread starting with Fl..... is VERY BAD?
do you want to prolong active life or shorten it?
If we look at the Link removed by moderator we find that Higher total cholesterol was associated with a lower risk of noncardiovascular mortality in older adults.
So knowing that raising cholesterol lengthens life and lowering cholesterol shortens life you have to choose.
It's never too late to improve your B12 and choline levels with a change of diet.We are life-long vegetarians so I won't ask about meat/fish.
It may be an idea to watch this video Link removed by moderator and learn from an ex vegan how the benefits of a healthyvegetarian diet don't have to be so far removed from the benefits of a healthy paleo diet.Any other vegetarian tips?
I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to help you as I think pasta and bread are pretty much adding to the problems. It would be different if you had a source of organically grown heritage wheat which may be safer but modern dwarf wheats are more likely to provoke inflammation and are less nutritious.I've been a studious low-fatter, but after reading The Great Cholesterol Con book, I started changing my mind and favouring more cheese based dishes, rather than the usual ones based on rice, pasta, bread, which it seems are not so helpful after all!!
You will see Vascular dementia is included in this article.Do you think coconut can help with vascular dementia, or is it specifically useful for Alzheimer's?
