I almost didn’t believe it when Tropical Traditions emailed me and said they would like to offer my readers a chance to win a whole gallon of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. I actually emailed them back and asked them to confirm that it was, indeed, the gallon size container they were giving away. True story.
And good news: yes, ladies and gentlemen, you have a chance to win a whole gallon of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil ! Yesterday, I shared with you some things I had learned from “The Good Fat Cookbook”, and about the importance of fat in the diet, especially for women and their hormones. Today, I’m actually giving you a chance to get your own supply of what author Fran McCullough calls “a miraculous substance”.
In her book, she lists the benefits of coconuts, and by extension, coconut oil:
It’s a low-fat fat, several calories fewer per gram than all other fats.
It has zero cholesterol.
It increases metabolism rates.
It’s an excellent fiber source.
It protects against heart disease and cancer.
It contains lauric acid, the protective substance in mother’s milk, to support the immune system.
It has strong antiviral activity.
It prevents wrinkles and premature aging (use it as a lotion! ~ QECH)
It’s antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory.
It’s full of antioxidants.
She goes on to recommend Tropical Traditions as one of the best sources for quality coconut oil. Why is Tropical Traditions the best source? Because they use the traditional method for extracting the oil from the coconuts, and the traditional method preserves both the flavor and the nutrition found in coconuts. For more information, read about their coconut oil process . You can also read my previous review of Tropical Traditions coconut oil .
Never cooked or baked with coconut oil before? No problem! They’ve compiled a great list of all the uses for coconut oil – you’ll probably run through that gallon faster than you imagined! (Plus, if you purchase through one of my links, you will receive a free Virgin Coconut Oil book!)
