I have been stirring it into my oatmeal, it's delicious. One of those butter replacement ideas... but I never used butter in my oatmeal.

I also pop my popcorn in it.

I have never heard of a particular time for eating CO that works better than another time. I guess ANY time is a good time.

Question about eating it right off the spoon ..... is there a best time to do so? Like, early in the morning before breakfast? With food? Without ???

Thanks!

It doesn't make it unhealthy. Also, coconut oil melts at a very low temperature.
The fact that coconut oil doesn't oxidize in our bodies (from heat) is ONE OF the major reasons why it is such a healthy fat. It doesn't get "sticky" (oxidization) like veggie oils and cause atherosclerosis.

I've read somewhere that HEATING coconut destroys the good chemical makeup that we want from the coconut oil. It changes it and make it UNhealthy. I just thought I would share that. I have coconut oil in my smoothies and love putting it on my skin. I use it as eye makeup remover because it is gentle and I have noticed that the lines around my eyes are going away. I also use it (a tiny bit) on my face as a moisturizer. When I use it, strangely, I don't have pimples (yes, I'm 40 and still occasionally get them) but when I run out of oil and go for about a week without it....I have a breakout!!!
Best of luck to you all.

No problem eating it right off the spoon for me BUT I grew up at the time when we got a daily dose of cod liver oil off a spoon :-).

Just got my first jar of coconut oil in the mail yesterday. I can't really bring myself to eat it from a spoon...so I put it in my blender (teaspoon as they said it might have side effects if taken too much right away) and added some mixed fruit I cut up yesterday, some almond milk, and mixed it up. Was not too bad...but it didn't all mix up and was sort of clumpie in there...maybe I didn't blend enough...but I drank it...I would do anything to get myself back into a healthy place. thanks for the ideas...oh yeah, decided to rub some on my hands...it really is nice! d

You can eat coconut oil right off the spoon.

You can stir fry with it.

You can deep fry with it.

You can melt and add some honey to it.

You can add to smoothies.

You can use it in place of butter or margarine in baked goods.

You can use it on your skin.

You can use it on your hair.
