Free Virgin Coconut Oil Book and Green Smoothie Recipe

Are you looking for a good source for coconut oil? We love Tropical Traditions expeller pressed oil because it is healthy AND it doesn't have the coconut flavor so you can use it in anything. The gold label is also delicious, when you don't mind the coconut flavor- or if you just want to eat it plain. (This actually recommended for people with thyroid troubles.)

When I first made the switch to coconut oil, I didn't think there was any way I would ever use very much of it. That first gallon lasted us about 6 months. However, as I slowly broke away from using less healthy oils, I've been more and more thankful for the ability to buy such a great oil in larger quantities at a reasonable price. We use coconut oil for almost  every recipe that calls for vegetable oils and shortenings. I also make salves and lotions from it, and even used it as a hair conditioner for a while. It is the best thing for getting rid of craddle cap. Just apply to baby's head, let sit, brush, wash.  

The grated coconut is very good too. I like to throw a handful into our morning smoothies (see recipe below). In fact, we've been happy with everything we've ordered from them. I especially like knowing that I can trust them to sell a product without hidden "franken-chemical-additive" things. Their blog is a wealth of information for those who are concerned with clean and healthy eating. 

If  you have never ordered from Tropical Traditions website and use this referral link to make your first purchase, you will receive a FREE book, and I will receive a discount coupon for referring you. (Yeah! More coconut oil!!)
