HEALTH WITH COCONUT OIL
Replace and Enjoy
Keeping aside its new taste which might take you some time to get used to, If you'd like to start eating this delicious coconut oil, remember: Replace unhealthy fats with coconut oil; don't add it on top of the fats you're already eating. Eating one to two tablespoons daily is a good amount, but because it is high in calories and fat, i don't recommend eating much more than that. Limiting your intake of unhealthy saturated fats, as well as trans fat, is also recommended.
Working coconut oil into your existing culinary routine is easy. Instead of using butter in baking, substitute coconut oil using a simple 1:1 ratio. Coconut oil is great to cook with, too. Unlike Olive oil, which is a medium-temperature oil (it evaporates when you cook on high flame), coconut oil can be cooked at high-heat making it ideal for dishes like stir-fry. It adds flavor when cooking or roasting any vegetables, and makes a delicious complement to bitter veggies like Karela (Bitter gourd) or Kale. You can also find other ways to substitute coconut oil, such as using it on your morning toast in place of butter.
Choosing to Supplement
If you don't like coconut oil or aren't having success working it into your diet, you might consider taking a dietary supplement. To support the health of your entire body, Doctors usually recommend 2000 to 4000 milligrams daily, although you should check with your Doctor to determine the right dosage for you. An Organic extra virgin supplement is a good choice.
As you can see, the coconut palm is not only picturesque but also offers significant health benefits.
