  • Ingenious ways to add coconut oil to the diet?

    I'd like to add more (raw) coconut oil to my diet and wondered if any of you have found good ways to do it

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Cook with it as you would cook with any other good fat, add it to salads, bake primal cakes with it, eat it by the spoonful, put it on your skin.

      I don't really eat many fried foods tbh, but when I do I use coconut oil

      Never thought of adding it to salads - will try that tonight!

      Skin, never thought of that either

      Thanks!

      (Don't think I could eat it by the spoonful tho lol)

        Melt, whisk in some cocoa, then pour on top of something cold (like frozen fruit) for an instant "Magic Shell" of crunchiness.

            Dab onto sliced sweet potatoes... bake until soft in the middles and slightly crunchy and caramelized in the bottoms and edges. I prefer the "Organic Extra Virgin" CO that actually TASTES like coconuts for this. NOM!

                  Winencandy came up with a great recipe:
                  2 parts coconut oil
                  1 part chocolate of the sweetness desired (I use 1/2 semi-sweet, 1/2 bittersweet)
                  Melt together, pour into candy molds or little paper candy cups. Chill.
                  Store in the fridge.

                      Put it in the bath. It is the world's best skin moisturiser.

                      If you put it on salads, make sure your salad is a little warm or room temp (or make the dressing slightly warm) as the stuff goes solid on a really cold salad. I prefer it not solid.

                        Melt and add some shredded coconut, a spoon of almond butter, and some unsweetened cocoa powder. Put in freezer until it hardens (around 15 min). Yum.
