I’m coco for coconuts!
I mean, if people can say they are bananas for bananas…
…then that basic logic applies for all fruits, right?
Wait…you don’t know what coconut oil is?
Here’s what Tropical Tradition says on their “What is Coconut Oil?“ page. It’s pretty self-explanatory: coconut oil is…well..coconut…oil. Oil from coconut.
I don’t know how to simplify that more. It’s just like how olive oil comes from olives and avocado oil is made from
Jesus himself avocados.
Coconut oil is one of, if not, my favourite fat source. It’s high in medium-chain triglyceride which helps induce ketosis. It’s solid at room temperature but heat it up and it will liquefy. It’s not as delicate as other polyunsaturated oils such as you olive oil, which requires storage away from light(ever notice those bottles are dark and not transparent?). Saturated fatty acids have a high smoke point and doesn’t go rancid when exposed to air, making them versatile fats for any type of food preparation and storage. Coconut oil can be used in anything. I take mine and mix it with all my nut butters, (try my Homemade Cookie Butter!) to add in extra fats and reduce the carbs even further. When it comes to coconut oil, the only question you should be asking is, what can’t I put it in? I used to wait until my almond butter separated from the oil and pour all the grease out. Now here for am thinking there isn’t enough! Yup, I used to be a huge low-fat dieter. Looking at coconut oil’s fat content would have made me cringe back then.
