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
The beauty of a Thrive Market membership
At Thrive Market you’ll find your favorite products for healthy living at 25 – 50% off retail (basically, wholesale pricing). It’s is like a Costco for natural products, except you order in the comfort of your home instead of wandering around a massive, dreary warehouse. An annual membership fee is required but it’s easy to earn it back with just a couple of orders.
I’ve been a Thrive Market member for most of 2015 and I’ve found plenty to stock up on. Some of my favorite brands include Udis, Seventh Generation, Woodstock, Amy’s, Late July, Justin’s, If You Care, Spectrum Naturals and Eden Organics. Plus I just realized they carry Acure – one of my favorite natural beauty brands!
Have I convinced you yet? You’ve really got nothing to lose because the membership is free for 30 days!
