17. Go Coco – 6 Great Uses of Coconut Oil
We love all things Coconut in our household and buy a lot of our Coconut products from Coco Wonder at the Legaspi Market on Sunday morning. We buy Coconut Flour – we generally make our own, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Sugar and Coconut Amino Sauce (great as a Soy Sauce substitute for Adobo and marinating chicken).
We also buy from Landmark. We buy Coconut Water without added sugar, cooking Coconut Oil, Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream Cream – always check the ingredients label.
1. Brush your Teeth and Oil Pulling
We use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil for brushing our teeth and I also oil pull with it where you swirl it around your mouth. This pulls harmful bacteria, fungus and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth and gums.
2. For your Skin
The Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) in Coconut Oil acts as a natural skin conditioner. Deeply penetrating and moisturizing, they protect against skin damage and helps with anti-aging.
3. In your Primed Gel for Run Races or Triathlons
4. For Primed Dark Chocolate Crunch
5. For Cooking Most Dishes
6. Primed Pink Smoothie
I am sure there are so many other fabulous ways to use Coconut Oil. What else do you use your Coconut Oil for? Please share with us.
