Default Coconut Oil

Has anyone incorporated coconut oil into their diet?

I don't drink smoothies, but I do drink Glucerna once a day.

I love it. I cook with it, and I love it in my coffee.
Use it all the time.
I get it from Swansons. This is the cheapest place I have found it.

Clueless, you put coconut OIL in your coffee? Does is just melt from the heat of the coffee?

I primarily use coconut oil for baking, I want to try to use it with chicken and other types of meat. I like to spread it on toast for right out the jar.

Yep, we use coconut oil inside and outside. Good for the skin.

I give my kids 1 tsp of organic coconut oil a day.

I use it on my pregnant belly (no stretch marks and I'm on baby #3)

I put in in my hair and on my face It doesn't clog pores!

I cook with it-it is SO much tastier than all other oils!

I got a pamphlet from my holistic sstore about the benefits of it and there are a million good things that it does!

Also, coconut water is really good too! Apparently it has some of the same chemical makeup as our blood and soldiers in the past used to use coconut water as IV's when they were desparate.

I have done SOME cooking with it and I use it for various skin treatments, but I have limited knowledge of using it.

I was wondering if some of you would share your recipes (both inside and out ) for using it? You could post them in the recipe section??

Thanks so much ahead of time!

Where do you find it? In the baking section at most grocery stores? Or at specialty whole foods stores?

Sure does. It is sweet and delish!
Not all the time but it is a treat.

I buy organic, unrefined coco oil at walmart. Use it for everything!
A teaspoon in your coffee, with cream and sweetener is my morning favorite.

I cook with it, just like any othef oil. Carrots, cut in slices, cooked in coco oil are delicious...sprinkle with parsley before eating!

Body:
moisturizer
hair conditioning treatment
cold sore treatment
