I do not buy "fake" fats. I use only butter, olive oil, or coconut oil for cooking. When people see how I cook they are amazed how trim my family is. I firmly believe the reason is that I do not use "fake" foods or highly processed foods. This isn't because I'm so very perfect or anything like that. It is because from the very beginning of our marriage we have been pretty much under the poverty line for our family size. To look at our home and family you wouldn't think such a thing. We have nice clothes, nice furniture, and a clean house. This is because I buy everything (except socks, shoes, and underwear) used at yard sales or thrift stores when I can. I only buy new when I have no choice, and then in an effort to spend my money wisely, I research and read reviews of the them before committing to a purchase. We eat healthy delicious homemade food. I started making homemade foods because buying premade convenience foods is so expensive. Now I do it because it is so good for us, and bonus, it is thrifty!
Have you heard of coconut oil? It is an oil that can be used for cooking and beauty products. When Tropical Traditions offered to send me a jar to review I was thrilled because I like using coconut oil in my cooking.
Tropical Traditions is a company committed to providing not just high quality Coconut Oil, but also products for the home, non GMO organic foods, organic meats, beauty products, and even pet supplies!
Here is what the owner says about his products
Finding good food sources and healthy products is an ongoing endeavor, and the products sold through Tropical Traditions are the products I have trusted to meet the needs of my own family. I won't sell you products that I won't use personally or give to my own children.
Coconut oil is not a common fat in the American diet so you may wonder what coconut oil is. Click the link to learn What Is Virgin Coconut Oil. Coconut oil also has reputed health benefits. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil: http://coconutoil.com
The oil that Tropical Traditions sent me was well packaged and shipped extremely fast! It is very fresh smelling with a slight coconut scent. When I tasted it straight it is flavorless, no bitterness, with just a touch of coconut flavor. I use it in stir frying since it has a very high smoke point, baking, and even for making my homemade lotions bars. Coconut oil had countless uses which you can learn more about HERE. Or watch the video below to learn more.
I have tried other brands of coconut oil, but Tropical Traditions by far is the best. Also the price is very good and cheaper than buying the coconut oil sold here locally. After looking at their other products I have dozens on my "would like to get" list. I also like that they always seem to be running a sale or promotion for free shipping. That's really nice!
I would recommend Tropical Traditions to anyone looking for high quality coconut oil!
