The superfood series has been popular, so, I decided to finish out the superfoods listed in David Wolfe’s book.

I found a free PDF copy of the book HERE.

How to use coconut oil: (2)

The best way to use coconut oil is to simply use it for cooking, in place of any other cooking oil, especially super unhealthy vegetable oil. Here are a few other ways to use it:

  • Put it in smoothies
  • On toast in stead of butter
  • Mix it in oatmeal
  • Use it to make popcorn – then put it on top, instead of butter!
  • Make your grilled cheese with it, instead of butter!
  • Make salad dressing/mayo
  • Mix it with sugar for a body scrub
  • Face moisturizer
  • Leave-in overnight conditioner – spread in hair and wash out in the morning
  • Season your cast iron pans
  • Feed it to your pets

Here is an article I wrote which highlights coconut
