    Hmm, that's a possibility. Sounds like a good paleo desert.

    Chocolate-covered coconut oil? Keep in the fridge.

    I think the extra Virgin stuff is beautiful in taste, appearance and texture. Unfortunately I can't stomach it off the spoon - it makes me burp loudly. Tubers taste good roasted in it though. It goes with sweet potatoes very well. We made an energy bar with it. It defo fills you up. How can any CW person look at EV coconut oil or smell it and say it is bad for you?!

    CW says "any thing that's good for you tastes bad-and anything that tastes good is bad for you". Primal has shown me that's false but pre primal my appetite and taste buds used to be messed up. I believed it too.

    The plumbing has been a bit backed up -- too many potatoes in too few days, I think -- so I just added 1 T to my black coffee and licked the spoon. Meh on the solids off the spoon, and double meh on the non-blended coffee; tastes weird. But if it gets things moving again, I will have zero complaints!

    LOL, oh yeah, I guess that would taste a whole lot better.

    Try coconut chips toasted in coconut oil. Eat it like you would granola.

    I measure out a couple of ounces of coconut oil into a 4 oz mason jar and keep it in a warm place, then take it as a liquid off a teaspoon when I want it. I had issues with gagging in the past when trying to eat solid coconut oil, and I have no issues with this. But perhaps the reason I had trouble with it in the past could have been that it might not have been entirely fresh.

    I can no longer consume coconut oil on its own since it tastes like a bunch of rancid shit. I used to buy Sprouts coconut oil, but even that has deteriorated in quality since it first came out. I think it's a lot better to consume something less processed to blunt hunger....coconut oil = potato flour = whey powder = organic ketchup. Is it extracted from natural food? Yes. Can you use it when in a bind or to aid you in your cooking for processes that would otherwise take you forever to make? Sure. Should it be the center of your meal/snack as a source of real nutrition? Highly doubtful.

    Okay I figured out a simple mixture --> scramble 3 eggs, 1 tbsp coconut oil, and a pinch of sea salt in a bowl. Fry it up.

    Tastes great, it's just extra rich scrambled eggs, not overly coconuty.
