Extra Virgin Coconut Oil


Have you heard about Extra Virgin Coconut Oil?  This is so so so good for you.  I have been incorporating it into my diet.  It is suggested to take in about 3 tablespoons a day.  You can cook with it - put it into smoothies, eat it by the spoonful - the options are endless.  It is full of Lauric Acid which is a medium chain fatty acid that your body NEEDS. It is considered a super food and an immediate source of energy.   You should just google: Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Benefits.
Weight Loss, Skin and Hair, Cholesterol benefits, anti fungal anti bacterial - I use it like Neosporin.
There are so many uses for this besides health benefits, that I wouldn't have believed it unless I tried it myself. Josh had a cut on his hand that was taking forever to heal, after putting EVCO on the cut with a band-aid it was good in about a day. 
Me and my girlfriend, seriously just eat it by the spoonful.  That could be because she has 4 kids and I have 3 and sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day to whip up a smoothie.  I use this in the afternoon as a pick me up! I like the taste of it because I like the mild coconut flavor. 
Different brands have different textures and Garden of Life brand is my favorite so far.  You can pick it up at your local health food market or online.
