I have partnered with Tropical Traditions for my very first giveaway!! I am so exciting to offer you the chance to win a jar of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! If you browse around real food/paleo blogs, I can bet you’ll come across coconut oil somewhere. My favorite use for coconut oil is, quite obviously, in recipes. Not only is it delicious, but coconut oil remains stable when heated. Meaning you won’t be cooking your meals in heat-damaged fat. Of course coconut oil is also dairy free, so it offers another option to folks who have dairy allergies. You can use it to fry up on a meal on the stove, bake a cake in the oven or to up your morning cup-a-Joe. Pretty much any recipe that calls for a fat can be made with coconut oil!
Surprisingly, coconut oil isn’t just for food. Coconut oil can be used in soaps, moisturizers and even tooth paste! It’s pretty incredible stuff. I personally have not used coconut oil outside of the kitchen, but it’s on a [very long] list of things I want to start doing frequently. Namely, I plan to experiment with ditching toothpaste and using a homemade coconut oil based teeth cleaner instead. You can find countless resources on the web for using coconut oil outside of cooking.
So why Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil? The simplest answer is: it’s pure. Tropical Traditions presents a pretty impressive list of qualities for it’s gold label coconut oil.
