What you ACTUALLY Need to Know About Coconut Oil

Here’s the thing: we all know why coconut oil is amazing. If you’re not sure, a quick Google search is all it takes.


We also know that some people think coconut oil is pretty overrated. Another quick Google search will help you there.


Sometimes, we get so inundated with information that we forget to actually TRY things for ourselves: so here are some things to note, so you can get started with coconut oil and make your own decisions about it.


Coconut oil has a pretty high smoke point. That basically means you can pan-fry with it at higher temperatures than with olive oil. So, have at it with a tropical chicken stir-fry!


Coconut oil is NOT that different in fat content than butter. It actually may have more saturated fat: but, it has a higher concentration of good things in it. So, pick your battles.

It works in smoothies, and in coffee. Yup, you can drop some in for coconutty flavor, and the richness will keep you fuller longer.


You CAN bake with it. Think of it as a butter substitute. But, don’t expect it to taste like butter.


Just like everything else: use it in moderation. For obvious reasons, you shouldn’t eat a jar of ANY oil in one day.


There. Now you’re armed with some coconut oil facts. Now go forth and try it, and decide for yourself if you like it!
