Best All Around: Coconut Oil


Coconut oil seems to be popping up everywhere lately (or maybe I’m just behind the curve), and I’m constantly surprised at how versatile this little jar of melt-in-your-hands magic can be. When I first bought some at Trader Joe’s, I got a secret thrill from using it in the kitchen to sauté veggies or make my favorite treat, then taking it to my bathroom shelf to slather some on my face before bed.

Here are a few recipes and finds I’m looking forward to trying:

The Savory:

Lemon Rosemary Coconut Oil Roasted Vegetables

Coconut Oil Spaghettini

Chocolate Coconut Kale Chips (Don’t these sound crazy? Would you try them?)

The Sweet:

Coconut Oil Rice Krispie Treats

Peanut Butter Cacao Fudge Bars

The Beauty:

Coconut Oil Salt Scrub

Are you into coconut oil? Do you use it in the kitchen, or on your body? Or both?

    I was putting some in my coffee every morning, but then could not remember why and thought is was fattening. It was good, though!
