For the Love of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has benefits beyond cooking, and I love many of them: make-up remover, moisturizer, cuticle softener, hair frizzies and after shaving. I use it for reasons other than cooking on a daily basis and it does not leave a greasy feeling once it has been absorbed. It is one of the healthiest things you can put on your skin.
I, also, use it in food all the time. Though it is a pricey item, it is well worth it as a jar of it will last for at least six months. It’s a great replacement for butter, which I do love, but coconut oil is much healthier. I eat it on toast, put a teaspoon in my oatmeal, and put it on vegetables the same way I would butter – and I love it. Use it as a replacement for butter and oil in recipes – as an equal amount. It’s, also, great to use for popcorn – replace the butter and oil, it’s delicious.
The health benefits go on: it’s great for memory loss, it is rich in lauric acid – known for being anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal. Also, it has been known to increase the metabolism to lose weight.
Pricey, but well worth every cent. I will need to buy some soon, and I’ll just figure it into my budget – don’t think there will be any problem doing this.
