FREE Organic Coconut Oil with a New Thrive Market Membership

Nutiva Coconut Oil

You know how I said I was on a mission to cook and bake more with coconut oil? If you’re with me on that one, listen up for a really great deal! (*affiliate link)

Thrive Market is offering all first-time members a FREE full-sized jar of Nutiva organic, fair-trade virgin coconut oil! Plus you’ll get 15% off your first purchase and a 30 day free trial membership (see below for why I love my Thrive Market membership!)

You gotta grab this free gift quickly because it’s only available for a short time (September 1st  – 9th, 2015.) The free coconut oil is for new members only, but existing members will receive an additional 10% off their purchase.

What’s so great about coconut oil?

Coconuts are nutrient powerhouses, loaded with iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium, as well as antioxidants, which inhibit harmful free radicals in our bodies. Consumption of coconut has been linked to prevention of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease, as well as increased metabolism, better bone strength and a boosted immune system. 

Coconut oil is a saturated fat that is mostly made of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are fats that the body can burn off quickly, making them a healthier option than other saturated fats, such as butter. Nutiva coconut oil is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, fair trade, cold-pressed and completely unrefined. All that, plus it’s delicious!

Here are some ways to use coconut oil in cooking:

  • In a stir fry or sauté on medium heat (especially good with curries)
  • For delicious roasted vegetables
  • As butter or oil substitute in baking
  • Mixed with chocolate for a naturally sweet treat
  • In bulletproof coffee instead of butter (curious to try this!)
  • Spread on toast

Cooking with Coconut Oil – 8 Recipes to Try

Cooking with Coconut Oil - Recipes to Try

That coconut oil has health benefits is not new news. Even so, I have not embraced it in cooking as much as I would expect. I tend to stick with the more familiar fats - butter, olive oil and canola oil (organic as much as possible!), simply because I know what works for me and what I read most often in recipes. Lately, I've been on a … [Continue reading]
