I use coconut oil daily for almost every aspect of life. I use it for cooking – both as a butter/vegetable oil substitute and to fry up pretty much anything in the skillet – from eggs and pancakes to sweet potato fries. I use it for beautiful skin – as a moisturizer, as the primary component of lotions and salves, as a make-up remover and “personal” moisturizer. (Remember the post I did on how it is a lifesaver for sore nursing mommies with teething babies?)
Going Paleo this month I am sure to use a ton of coconut oil for cooking and fat/oil supplementation. It seems like nearly 90% of the Paleo recipes I’ve found call for either coconut oil or coconut cream concentrate. And the only place I’ve been able to find coconut cream concentrate is through this great company called Tropical Traditions. Come to find out they also carry great deals on bulk coconut oil and coconut flour, too!
After writing them to find out if they have an affiliate program, which they totally do, I received a free sample of their Gold Label Virgin coconut oil to review and found out that they are willing to offer you readers some, too!
My Review of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:
Tropical Tradition’s Gold Label Virgin coconut oil is super smooth. Compared to the other brand that I had been using, it tastes richer, but not as coconutty. It is great for frying up Paleo Pancakes but not too sweet to use for something savory like replacing butter in my dairy-free chicken pot pie recipe. (Usually I have to go with something other than coconut oil when cooking savory dishes because the other brand that I used was too sweet.) And you can’t beat the deals that Tropical Traditions offers for this great product – especially with free shipping.
