In the Spirit of Coconut Oil,


5 Reasons You Should Start Eating (Yes, Eating) Coconut Oil




As if that weren't enough, coconut oil produces ketones, the brain's second-favorite form of energy, which makes it good for brain health, said naturopathic physician Meagan Purdy. Ketones also tend to burn fat but not muscle tissue, which makes coconut oil ideal for building strength.

The best part? You don't need to be a nutrition expert or foodie to make use of this trendy superfood. Here are a few low-investment, high-return ways to incorporate coconut oil into your diet.

Thank you. I’ve been using coconut oil since I read this topic.
It is a bit different.
The first time I pan fried some fish the oil remained white. I thought the coconut oil would turn to a clear colored oil when used. It didn’t.
I didn’t know what to expect when time came to turn the fish. It was good. Didn’t flake apart.
It’s good for popping popcorn.

Shortly, I'll be on my way to "Sprouts" to pick up some more. Use unrefined, if you haven't already ... I also put it in my coffee and rub it on my body, yep.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
