Coconut Oil!!!

I am curious how many of my blog readers use Coconut Oil on a regular basis? If not, you should definitely start! It does amazing things and is considered a "healthy" oil.  The website has some great info. Here is some more:

From his extensive research of the medical literature, Dr. Fife has come up with a slew of health benefits associated with coconut oil. Some of them are:
.. Reduces risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease
.. Reduces risk of cancer and other degenerative conditions
.. Helps prevent bacterial, viral and fungal (including yeast) infections
.. Supports immune system function
.. Helps control diabetes
.. Provides an immediate source of energy
.. Supports healthy metabolic function
.. Promotes weight loss
.. Supplies fewer calories than other fats
.. Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
.. Helps prevent osteoporosis
.. Helps keep skin soft and smooth

- I sometimes will take just a 'ole big spoonful of it!
- It is the ONLY oil I use to do high-heat cooking/sauteing, as it does not oxidize at high temps!
- It is AMAZING to use to make homemade popcorn! YUM!! I also stir a little into my oatmeal in the mornings, along with some rapadura and raisins!
- Honestly, it has really seemed to give me more energy and have found that when using it regularly, it helps me stay healthy!

Shop at this link for a great coconut oil in a 32oz size - enough for you to get to try for a month or more: COCONUT OIL. It is actually on sale right now, so a great time to give it a try! Tropical Traditions also has some other great products that you can take a look at as well! I have used their COCONUT FLOUR as well. It is YUMMY - and gluten free if you or anyone in your family is concerned about that!!

Give coconut oil a try! You might like it - if nothing else, at least your body will love it!
