It’s no secret that coconut oil has some impressive health benefits. In addition to boosting good cholesterol, it’s a great way to get healthy fats in for a diet like keto. Here are a few easy ways you can start adding more to your diet.
Add it to Coffee or Tea
Along with ghee, coconut oil is a great addition to bulletproof coffee. It’s a great way to get in extra fat, and there isn’t any noticeable taste to it. You could also add it to tea. A quick, fun recipe to try is chai tea, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil, cream, and your favorite zero calorie sweetener. It’s better than any $5 drink you’ll find at a coffee shop (and keto friendly too!).
Use it for Cooking
Next time you’re cooking, try using coconut oil instead. Because of the saturated fatty acids, it’s stable at high temperatures. You’ll also find that it has a high smoke point– around 350 degrees. Use it for stir frying or sautéing meats or veggies!
It cannot just substitute for butter in cooking, it also works for baking! It can really be substituted any time a recipe needs butter or vegetable oil. It’s important to note though, when using it for baking, everything should be room temperature before adding it in. It solidifies at colder temperatures.
Add in Nut Butters
You can swap out the natural oil that separates in your nut butters with coconut oil. Make sure to melt your it down first before adding and mixing.
Reach for a Marigold Bar
Because of the health benefits and great fat content, Marigold utilizes it in all of our healthy protein bars. Find it in bars like Ginger Coconut, Espresso, Lemon Pie, and more! It’s an easy and delicious way to add coconut oil to your diet.
If you’re feeling extra daring about getting coconut oil in, you could even take it by the spoonful. This is as long as you don’t mind the texture or taste. If you’re feeling less daring, add it to a smoothie. Now start eating that coconut oil!
