Coconut oil is a unique and versatile product that can be used for skin care, oral health, hair care and most of all nutritional purposes! Here are a few of coconut oil’s health benefits:
- Includes healthy fats that are essential for our body
- Reduces inflammation
- Improves energy
- Helpful for weight loss
- Boosts immunity
- Prevents heart disease and lowers cholesterol
And MUCH more!
Coconut oil can be used in many different ways in the kitchen, from salads to baked goods.
Here are some delicious recipes to try!
1. Cauliflower Fried Rice
“Substituting cauliflower for some of the rice lowers the carbs and calories, and adds in veggies. Using brown rice ups the whole grain and fiber factor. The dish isn’t cooked with a ton of fat, but you do get some good fats from the coconut or olive oil.”GO TO RECIPE
2. 3 Ingredient Coconut Oil Biscuits
“But I’ve now discovered these warm and flaky and irresistibly delicious biscuits can be in my hot little hands in just about 20 minutes after waking up. 10 minutes to prep. 10 minutes to bake. And they’re so good that you basically want to eat 10.”GO TO RECIPE
3. Coconut Crusted Mahi Mahi Nuggets
“Coconut oil was the perfect thing to cook these nuggets, as it complemented the shredded coconut and made them really crispy. Like any coated fish, they do get a little less crisp as they sit so serve immediately (or they can be gently warmed in the oven to re-crisp). All in all, a good healthy and flavourful answer to fast food fish nuggets!”GO TO RECIPE
4. Homemade Coconut Oil Honey Almond Granola
“Granola is very easy to make. After making this off and on for the last few years and tweaking it a little each time, this recipe is now perfection to me. My favorite thing about it is the finely ground almonds that coat each little oat. But I also like to leave some almonds chopped up more coarsely for extra crunch. It’s wonderfully sticky and clumpy.”GO TO RECIPE
5. The Best Butter-Free Popcorn (Nooch Popcorn)
“”Nooch” Popcorn really is the BEST butter-free popcorn! It’s also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, preservative-free, healthier, and irresistibly tasty. And it can be made in just 10 minutes!”GO TO RECIPE
6. Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
“I realize it is a bold statement to say that these Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies ever, but those are the exact words I said with each bite of these tasty little cookies.”GO TO RECIPE
7. Southwest Loaded Sweet Potato Fries
“Today’s recipe is a bit of comfort meal but still within the realm of completely healthy. I used Sarah’s recipe for sweet potato fries for the added crispness from the cornmeal.”GO TO RECIPE
8. Super Moist Banana Bread
“This time around, the banana bread, was incredibly moist, light, cake like in texture, and had a faint taste of coconut. Like when you are in the tropics, laying on the beach, and you can smell that faint smell of coconut in the distance.”GO TO RECIPE
9. Spicy Kale and Coconut Stir Fry
“A vegetarian weeknight stir fry with sautéed kale, coconut flakes and rice. The dish is finished with Thai flavors like lime, cilantro and sriracha. For best results, cook your rice in advance and refrigerate until you’re ready to start cooking. This dish comes together very quickly—be sure to have your ingredients prepped ahead of time and placed near the stove, along with a big empty bowl for the cooked components.”GO TO RECIPE
10. 30 Minute Coconut Curry
“The end result? A super simple, veggie-packed (Vegan and GF-friendly) curry that will please a crowd. Even those on the fence about curries should try this recipe as it’s heavy on the coconut milk and light on the spices. I think you’re going to love it.”GO TO RECIPE

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.

1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
4) I thought it was virtually impossible for a website to be able to tell me anything even a little bit insightful after only submitting my name and date of birth... I was wrong!
5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
