Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway!

Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

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!

  7. I’m dairy intolerant so I substitute it for oil. I particularly like it in baked good, for roasting potatoes and popping corn. It’s also a great binder in flapjack/ homemade granola bars. I have yet to try it on toast but think it would be wonderfult with cinnamon and nuts.

  8. I’ve been looking at different ways of eating for my husband and I. I really am interested in going more towards whole foods, especially since he has celiac/sprue. One of the plans I’ve been considering recommends coconut oil over canola oil, which I’ve used for many years. This would be a great way for me to give it a try.

  9. I want to make some raw desserts with the coconut oil, like raw chocolate sauce and some frozen raw desserts. I would love this!
