Ok, so you don’t ACTUALLY have to put the lime in the coconut, but it is a catchy song (and blog title!). One super food that I’ve come to know and love is coconut oil. It can be used in so many ways! It can be used as a cooking/baking oil (obviously) but also for many other things that you may not be aware of. I add it to my coffee (trust me, it’s delicious!). You can also use it as a butter/margarine replacement, a hair conditioner (even helps to promote/increase hair growth!), skin moisturizer, massage oil, diaper cream, homemade toothpaste ingredient, and oil pulling (if you don’t know what this is, look it up!). There is some chatter that it may also be able to help with thyroid function, weight loss/maintenance, and increase your ‘good’ cholesterol/decrease your ‘bad’ cholesterol.
So my short but sweet blog post today is an ode to coconut oil. Such a versatile food should be praised and promoted! Go check it out for yourself and let me know how you use it and why you love it!
