I love coconut oil.

Shocker, huh?

If you're not already familiar with the awesome coconutty world that I love, check out these posts:

I do a lot of writing and talking about coconut oil. The #1 question that I always get is “how do I use it?” In my opinion, the absolute best way to incorporate more coconut oil into your diet is to use it in your cooking and baking. You can replace most other oils with coconut oil. To be quite honest, coconut oil is the only oil I use for most of my cooking and baking. I use both virgin coconut oil and refined coconut oil from my affiliate partner, Tropical Traditions. I do use eco-friendly palm shortening and palm oil on occasions (also from Tropical Traditions). For cold dishes, I use extra virgin olive oil, cold-pressed sesame oil, or avocado oil (affiliate links). But, I'd venture to say that 80% of the oil I use is coconut oil.

If you're new to coconut oil, make sure you read the health benefits post I wrote and learn why I recommend this oil to everyone. If you want to know other ways to use coconut oil, check out the 122 Uses for Coconut Oil post. Tons of ideas in there, many shared directly with my from readers like you!
