Why I’m Nuts for Coconuts & a Giveaway!

My first giveaway and it is of one of my most favorite things in all of the land….. Coconut Butter! Most of you may have noticed that I am pretty nuts for all things coconut. It is border-line an obsession. I would say that I eat at least one serve of coconutty goodness every day. Is that weird? Actually don’t answer that, it’s not going to change anything for me, so just keep your opinions to yourself….. Unless your opinion is that I am totally normal, not even mildly unhinged & that I do not have coconut OCD…. Then share your opinions freely. Wow that got off-track, how unusual for me.

So, I have been lucky enough to be sent some DELICIOUS JARS OF HEAVEN from Honest to Goodness to giveaway to you!!

So why do I love coconut products?

#1- Coconut products are freaking delicious. Oil, butter, milk, cream, shredded, flakes, flour. It is totally versatile & 100% a mouth party.

#2- The saturated fat in coconut is made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids the body quickly turns into energy instead of storing as fat. Therefore, even though it’s high in saturated fat, the metabolism boosting medium chain triglycerides can aid in weight loss.

#3- The lauric acid in coconuts is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Coconut can help boost the immune system and is very nourishing. Put it on your skin, in your hair, use it as a deodorant or toothpaste.

#4- Coconut oil is very heat stable and this makes it a great oil for cooking. It is not damaged easily through heating like many other oils and stores really well also.

#5- It is so versatile & a brilliant option for those who have food intolerances. Unless you’re intolerant to coconut, in which case your life must be very sad. Coconut products can be used in sweet or savory dishes, as a substitute for butter, other oils, milk, cream, grain flours. You can read about my LOADS MORE USES here.
