    Coconut Oil

    Primal Fuel
    So I finally bought organic coconut oil, it smells really good...

    But how do I use it?.

    Tips, recipes are most welcome.

    The kind I have looks like white lard, anyhow so far all I've done is cook chicken with cauliflower rice in the stuff. I used a mix, coconut oil, then once the chicken was brown I threw in the "rice", then olive oil, heavy cream and curry.

    If you can avoid eating it directly out of the container - I use it to cook all things fish and foul. I also moisturize with it daily and deep condition with it weekly.

    I've heard that some people put a spoonful or two into their coffee or tea, instead of milk/cream. Once, when I wanted something very rich, I smeared some onto a square of 75% chocolate - it hit the spot at the time, but didn't become a favourite.

    I fry my eggs in it, and as Suki said, any meat/fish that I eat on my own - unfortunately, my partner doesn't like the smell of coconut (he got sick from gorging on coconut sweets when he was a kid).

    I use it for stirfrys...so a whole bunch in the bottom of a wok and add broccoli, cauli, peppers...its good for high heat.

    Also this morning I added it to my protein smoothie. I warmed it up in the micro just enough so that it was liquid and poured it in before blending. I always found that smoothies didn't keep me full for long, but today I'm not hungry many hours after consuming it. I credit the coconut oil.

    Like Sherissima mentioned, I drop a tablespoon of coconut oil into my coffee when it's still really hot, it melts really quickly and I can't even really taste it. I've tried just eating it from the jar but it kind of grosses me out :/ I'd definitely recommend putting it into coffee though! Or when I used to make smoothies every morning, I'd pour some melted coconut oil in as the blender was going... super easy way to up the fat content!

    I used it to fry plantains- yeah.. I know lots of natural sugar, but I was rewarding myself for my awesomeness. We should do that every once in a while, just because.

    OH- and it was so hot the past couple days that even with the Air Conditioning on my coconut oil was completely liquid in the jar, so I stuck it in the fridge because I wanted to have a spoonful.. well, i forgot and when I took it out last night SOLID as a slab of granite and even now it's a rock hard impervious thing, so don't refridgerate if you can help it

    I eat it out of the jar, like a lot of others do, but I still haven't worked my way up to eating it plain, really....

    I get a spoon, get about half a spoonful out, put one fresh blackberry/raspberry/blueberry on it, put the yummy deliciousness in my tummy! Repeat 4 or 5 times. I know the fruit isn't great, but I can't eat the oil plain yet.

    At first I couldn't believe people ate the stuff, but I've definitely developed a taste for it, and now I look forward to my coco oil/berry treat
