I sometimes just put a tsp in my frypan and saute some fresh veggies. When I bake I will warm it up and use. Not sure how else to use it. I also LOVE coconut butter. It's yummy just on a spoon.

Hi there. I've been a member of the team for a couple of weeks but this is my first post.

Thank you for the link. I've been trying to add at least a tablespoon of coconut oil a day to my diet, but I'm not having much luck. If anybody out there has been using it daily, I would love some tips on how to incorporate it into my diet.

Things I've tried so far - Sauteing veggies (hubby objects to the coconut flavor). I revised my no bake cookie recipe to use coconut oil, organic non-alkali dark cocoa, stevia & natural peanut butter. The cookies are tasty (if you like seriously dark chocolate flavor) but by my calculation each cookie has only 1/4 tablespoon of oil, but enough calories that you wouldn't want to eat many each day. I would love to add it to my smoothies in place of flaxseed oil, but that whole solid under 72 degrees thing seems unworkable since I like my smoothies very cold. I can't eat it straight - there is just no way. I've tried it in my special peanut butter & cocoa oatmeal, which is a lot like that no bake cookie recipe when you think about it. I like the taste, but oatmeal as a breakfast item leaves me hungry pretty quickly, even with the added fat, so I can't do that daily. It just ends up being extra calories.

Am I missing some easy things I could do?

When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

Thank you sooo much, it has been bookmarked.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. ~Bob Moawad

I picked up this publication at my local health food store. It's free and you can read the entire thing online.
Here is a link to the website where you can view any of their articles/magazines for free.

Here is the article I just read; it's about coconut oil. The new healthiest fat.
