Eating Coconut Oil

Popcorn Made With Coconut Oil
I have been posting a lot about Coconut Oil this week because of all the remarkable ways I have benefited from it but there is one very important thing I have neglected to mention. 
Eating coconut oil is one of the best things you can do for your brain and your body! 
I began seeing many reports regarding the numerous benefits of coconut oil but I am a natural skeptic so I had to find out for myself if there was any truth to them.
I decided to embark on a 30 challenge where I vowed to eat 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil per day to see if I noticed any benefits or side effects. I have done this with other products before and I am rarely pleasantly surprised. This time was different! The coconut oil delivered all that was promised and then some! The only thing I can't be sure of first hand is it's effects on Alzheimer's because that isn't an issue that I face.
I can tell you that after I began consuming the coconut oil I noticed a dramatic difference in the moisture in my skin, my sweet tooth was almost gone, I experienced a huge boost in lasting energy, my metabolism sped right up and no more PMS! It was crazy! I used to get regular cold sores on my lower lip and I haven't had even the slightest tingling feeling since I started with the coconut oil.
My biggest obstacle in the beginning was figuring out how to eat it. I tried to eat it straight because that's how it was suggested but I just couldn't do it. I just decided to start experimenting and now coconut oil is part of my every day diet.

Coconut oil can be added to
  • oatmeal
  • smoothies
  • stir fries
  • popcorn
  • veggies
  • and many more dishes
