Coconut Oil - GIVEAWAY!


Hi everyone, happy Saturday!  This is no April fool's joke- I have a giveaway!!  YAY!  My friends at Tropical Traditions sent me a HUGE 32oz jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil to review (only if I wanted to, of course).  And what's awesome about Tropical Traditions is that they wanted me to review the product honestly, even if I didn't like it.  So cool!  Anyway, here's a short video about their product.

Now, you all know me- I eat coconut oil like it's going out of style, but I hadn't tried this particular type before.  Most coconut oils are either really bland or REALLY annoyingly coconutty (is that a word?).  This oil wasn't either of those, but instead a nice mix of coconut flavor and neutrality that could be added to any dish without making it feel like you're dining in the Caribbean (ha... though that would be nice I guess).  I used it as "butter" on my toast, as the oil in my coconut flour bread (recipe to follow in another bloggie), as a lotion, as a hair conditioner, as a facial moisturizer (nope, it didn't make me break out!), in my green smoothies, and as a cooking oil in EVERY-THING I made this week.  No eggs, pancakes or cheese stuck to any of my pans, and my food didn't taste like it needed topped with a cocktail drink umbrella.   There are a TON of uses for coconut oil- what I used it for just scratches the surface.  Here are some more ideas.

Now, you've heard how much I like this coconut oil- do you want one for yourself?!  My friends at Tropical Traditions are going to send one of my readers a FREE quart of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!   Can you believe it?!   Here's how to enter:

Subscribe to Tropical Tradition's Free Newsletter and leave a comment below letting me know that you subscribed.  For an extra entryleave a comment on my Facebook Page telling me how you like to use coconut oil.  You have until Wednesday, April 4th at 5:00pm EST to enter-ok, ready... set... go!

Have a lovely weekend!  Xoxo.
