5 Easy Ways to Add Coconut Oil to Your Daily Diet

My last post was about the benefits of coconut oil.  I imagine that some of you are wondering how to eat more of it. Research has shown that 1-2 tablespoons per day is enough to make a difference to your health.  In some cases up to 5 tablespoons.  I would like to make a few simple suggestions that may help you to add coconut oil to your daily diet.coconut-butter


Remember to choose an organic, unrefined coconut oil such as the one from Maison Orphee.

1.  Eat it off the spoon!  I will bet that you did not think of that!  I think it tastes good, but that is just me.  My family would have a comment or two about that!

2.  Add a tablespoon or two to your morning smoothie.  It will blend easily if you have a high powered blender.  If you do not, you could melt the coconut oil and then pour the liquid in.  To melt the coconut oil, put some in a small bowl and then place the bowl in hot water for a few minutes.

3.  Add melted coconut oil to your morning cereal.

4.  Prepare a salad dressing using melted coconut oil and olive oil and toss with your salad.

5.  Make energy balls, using coconut oil and snack on a few during the day.

Easy, right?  I think so!

Here is a recipe for yummy Energy Balls.
