Coconut Oil Benefits

It has been all the rage this past year and while I was pregnant, I was not up for trying anything "new" or different, {insert irrational fear of anything bad happening to baby} so I waited until this year to try out this magical and versatile super food:

 

I LOVE any and all things coconut, so I knew the taste would never be a problem for me.  This kind I bought from Trader Joe's does have a faint coconut flavor; it's detectable when I 'butter' my toast and cook my over-easy egg in it.  My sweet husband politely asked me to never cook his scrambled eggs in it again...
#sneakyhealthfail

I've heard there are so brands that do not have the "coconut flavor"...which ones??



There is much to be said for this oil to really help out our digestive systems,{especially someone with Crohn's Disease} and I really need to find a better solution to sneaking this into his daily meals!  Any suggestions?

Not only coconut oil great for inside our bodies, but apparently it works wonders on the outside as well!  I have yet to try the hair mask, but I certainly will!  I also heard that prego women are lathering it all over their bellies to keep it nice and moisturized.  I may try this the next time around!



My feet/heels are cracked and dry all of the time; slather it on to smooth out those rough piggies!

I keep trying to sneak it into my daily meals...I've heard from friends they throw it in a smoothie!! I'm also loving it spread on 1/2 of a whole wheat English muffin with my homemade jam.

How do you use Coconut Oil?  Do you see its benefits?

  1. I've been wanting to try coconut oil! I too love anything coconut but I didn't realize there were so many benefits. Do you know where you can buy it? We, sadly, don't have a Trader Joe's.

  2. I've never used coconut oil - I've definitely heard of the great health benefits, but have been nervous to try it because I don't like coconut flavor. Maybe I can find some that isn't overpowering??

  16. I’m giving a testimony about Dr Osemudiamen the great Herbalist man, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my herpes simplex virus, though I went through different website. I saw different testimonies about different spell casters and herbalist, I was like: ‘Many people’s have the herpes simplex virus cure why are people still suffering from it? I thought of it. Then I contacted Dr Osemudiamen via email: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com. I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared it (CURE) and sent it to me Fed-ex delivery, he gave my details to the FedEx Office, they told me that 2-3 days I will receive the parcel and i took the medicine as prescribed by him and I went for check-up 2 weeks after finishing the medicine, I was tested herpes simplex virus negative. if you are herpes simplex virus patient do me a favor by you contacting him and I assure anyone who is suffering it, your problem will never remain the same again you will be cured. Also Dr Osemudiamen help my sisters husband to cure his HIV/AIDS he was suffering from for the past 3 years. After he cured my herpes simplex virus, then my sister heard about it, she went home to tell her husband about Dr Osemudiamen then her husband emailed him and explained his problem to him. He also prepare herbal medicine and he use fed-ex delivery to sent him the herbal medicine and he instruct him on how he will be using it for 14 days. That on the 15 day of it, he should go and check his self in the hospital and he did as he was instructed by Dr Osemudiamen. To GOD be the glory he was cured of his HIV/AIDS which he was suffering from for the past 3 years thanks to these great man we will ever remain grateful to you Sir indeed might work you did in our families. When you contact him, make sure you tell him that I refer you.. contact him via: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com
