For quite awhile now, I have heard friends talk about how amazing Coconut Oil is. I never really knew what to use it for and just never took the time to find out. When I started my Whole30 and Paleo journey, I discovered how amazing Coconut Oil was. I recently had a chance to try Organic Gold Label Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil. Tropical Traditions is handcrafted in the Philippines and certified organic, making it have some of the highest amounts of antioxidants. Coconut Farmers use century old traditions.
One of the first only things I knew to do with Coconut Oil was to cook with it. When I did some research on the Whole30 and which products I needed to be successful, coconut oil was highly recommended. Because of the fatty acids that the oil contains, it helps to boost your metabolism and energy levels. I now use it to fry, bake and in dressings. Because I have found that many people find coconut to be overpowering, they are unwilling to try it. Personally, I find the oil to have a very mild flavor and in all of the recipes I have made with it, it adds a “hmmm what is that delicious flavor” aspect to it.
At this time of my life, I am trying everything possible to make sure I buy the purest, high quality products. I just find that my body does not work properly otherwise. Tropical Traditions by far fits the bill. They go out of their way, while other companies mass produce their products, to ensure that their customers are still receiving traditions that the Philippine people have been abiding by for thousands of years.
