I’ve always liked most anything coconut. Especially the smell.
Bought coconut oil spray for the girl’s hair. Coconut oil shampoo for her hair (which has been amazing for her hair too!) … maybe it makes me think of the beach and helps me relax or something.
This whole eating plan has been crazy but I’m getting used to eating better. Finally bought the ginormous vat of extra virgin coconut oil from Sam’s Club and have been learning to use it when cooking. I’m allowed six teaspoons of good fats every day and since I’m not always cooking with them I usually end up sucking on a few teaspoons of peanut butter or almond butter. At least I like those, wouldn’t want to do the same with olive oil.
Back to the coconut oil. Like olive oil I can’t just eat it plain. So tonight with my vanilla protein + unsweetened vanilla almond milk shake I decided to try adding one of the butters. Wasn’t sure about that though and then I thought of the coconut oil. Maybe that would taste good in my drink. So … Google … and I discovered this website 7 Ways to Eat More Coconut Oil … and decided to melt some and pour in my shake.
Pretty good. Had that hint of coconut flavor. Nothing overpowering, but I only used 1 tbsp. I’d eaten all my fruits for the day so it was nice to still have a different flavor in my shake tonight.
If I ever end up with more teaspoons left at the end of the day I’d definitely do that again.
I want to try out some of her other recipes, but maybe I’ll wait till after I’m done with the 21 Day Fix.
