If you’ve been following along at all lately, you may have heard something about my decision to stop eating dairy products. It may or may not be forever, but for now, my body feels best without it. However, this doesn’t mean I’m giving up on baked goods and such! Many times, I want to modify a recipe that calls for butter, and shortening or canola oil just doesn’t seem right. This is when I love to use virgin coconut oil. It does have the flavor of coconut, but when you’re incorporating it into baked goods, the resulting flavor is not really coconut-y at all. I’ve used it successfully in muffins, cakes, cookies, and even brownies. I even cook with it in savory dishes, as long as I don’t turn the heat up too high. And in the winter, when my skin turns dry, it’s a good salve that really seems to help moisturize my skin.
So when Tropical Traditions contacted me regarding an opportunity to share coconut oil with my readers, I jumped at the chance. I am giving away a 32 oz. jar of virgin coconut oil. I’ve purchased from Tropical Traditions several times, and have always been more than satisfied with their products. They run a lot of special sales, which is great. What’s better – they even have a referral program so that you can earn free goodies just by referring a friend!
