Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil review and GIVEAWAY


I stumbled across coconut oil a few weeks back, when I was looking for ways to treat Kingsley's supposed yeast rash. I was amazed at how many different containers it came in at the Health store. Large glass jars down to itty bitty plastic tubs. It was in the health food aisle as well as the cosmetics aisle. All, I knew at the time was it had an anti-fungal agent and would help with the yeast rash. Well, turns out it wasn't a yeast rash, and so, it did not help BUT....it really did not hinder either and it is organic after all. I actually had my mom use it as make-up remover when she was in town! Less, than 2 weeks after buying a small tub for $7.99 I saw tweets by @troptraditions for bloggers and reviews. I immediately responded, thinking, there had to be much more I could do with it, than what I had already done.

I received a huge glass quart container of Tropical Traditions to review and couldn't wait to start cooking...well, I mean, I was excited to cook with it, not that I like cooking or anything. So, I got out chicken tenderloins and Vigo breading. I realized we were out of eggs, which I normally dip the c hicken in before the breading. I decided to dip the chicken in the coconut oil before the breading and then fry the chicken in coconut oil as well! There are many advantages to cooking with coconut oil, that I did not know, like the fact that is has was less calories than vegetable or olive oil. The fat content in coconut oil also turns to energy instead of lingering to the heart or arteries. It is chalked full of vitamins and minerals too!

Even with my head cold, I could smell the coconut. Christian worried that it might taste too coconutty and he wouldn't like it....I was worried too. Let me tell you, that they were delicious. They did not taste like coconut at all actually, but did give the chicken a bit of a sweeter taste. Zealand ate two whole chicken tenderloins and there wasn't any leftovers for Kingsley today. Then tonight, Christian made beef cube steaks and prepared them with flour instead of Vigo but used the coconut oil with dinner tonight too! All on his own, he liked it so much.

On the site Organic Facts I read the following: Coconut oil has been known to help with irritable bowel syndrome due to its high anti microbial properties, it is also good on for pancreatitis and weight loss. It as been known to strengthen the immune system and aid in healing and infections. Diabetes, bones and teeth have all seen an improvement by using coconut oil.

This is more than a one use product. And now I am so glad, I was sent such a huge bottle!
