Are you convinced about the health benefits of virgin coconut oil (VCO) but only uses it topically? You probably find the taste of VCO not so appealing so you find it hard to consume this natural product.
However the best way to get the most out of VCO is by adding it in one’s daily diet. Well, instead of taking coconut oil as it is, there is an easy way to consume it- by using it as a regular cooking ingredient. Coconut oil is a great cooking companion because it would make your food tastier and healthier
Here are five reasons why you would want to keep a bottle of VCO in your kitchen cabinet:
Add flavor to plain rice. Add a tablespoon or two of virgin coconut oil in cooking white or brown rice.
Make yummier eggs. Use coconut oil to make scrambled eggs. Remember to keep the heat low to avoid scorching the oil.
Add a twist to your regular hot drinks. Add a bit of VCO in coffee or tea but make sure that the drinks are not boiling hot before adding vco. Adding coconut oil to very hot drinks would heat the oil too and you may suffer from burns in mouths and lips.
Make your popcorn sizzle. Try cooking popcorn kernels on the stove top with coconut oil.
Enjoy Delicious yoghurt or smoothies. Add virgin coconut oil to your healthy drinks.
