Taking Coconut Oil

We all know the numerous health benefits of coconut oil. It really is a health food that probably has more positive functions for your body than we can envision. Coconut oil initially appears like it would be bad for you but there is overwhelming information available to support its health benefits.

Why then am I so horrified at the thought of sticking a spoon in a bottle of coconut oil and eating it straight out of the jar. I know how good coconut oil is for you internally and externally. I know it can often trump medicine. I just can't eat straight oil. It is like eating shortening out of a can. Yuck. My sister-in-law swears by the method of taking coconut oil and I swear by the merits of mixing it in other foods (have I mentioned the times I tried to mix it into non-sweet foods like hash browns -- it was an awful experiment). I just don't like my mouth to be slimy from oily food.

So, I will continue to look for other options to incorporate this ultra-healthy food into my diet!! My favorite, so far, is to put a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil into my morning protein shake. It is so fragrant and delicious...
