I usually fry sweet potatoes or yukon gold potatoes in the oil, but on days that I don't do that, like today, I just take it in my coffee or hot tea

also, if she can stand to start, have her begin knitting or crocheting, it really does help keep your mind off the pain, I began knitting 2 or 3 years ago, just to help me deal with the pain.

Virgin CO is natural and tastes like coconut. Unless I'm using it with chocolate I prefer the refined. The one I get is expeller pressed and not refined with chemicals and is not hydrogenated, and has all the benefits of virgin CO. Post #4 I think.

Since I put it in my coffee or tea I prefer it not to taste like coconut. I use a small frother to emulsify it a bit so it doesn't create the pool of oil. Warning! Start with a small amount so your body can get used to it. 1/2-1 tsp a day and s l o w l y increase. I can, and do, use up to 2T now and I'm fine.

Maybe TMI... It also helps with constipation.

I also use Silk vanilla flavor coconut milk to make hot chocolate. Yummy!

yes, Jan, and in the case of fibromyalgia, it helps a LOT with the IBS that goes hand in hand with fibro

Silk Almond milk is great, too. I'm lactose intolerant and so is my adopted daughter, so we use that a lot. We saute and bake with the coconut oil, and I put it in coffee, too, with almond milk.

I like to blend coconut milk with bits of dark chocolate (fibro fog is making me doubt how to spell that), and then freeze it in a ziplock bag, then re-blend it and it is like a shake.

Our costco recently started carrying LARGE containers of coconut oil (good quality) for $16 - the price is amazing!

I'll have to check Costco. What brand was it? And how do you know it was good quality? I've heard people say that, but other than making sure it's not refined with chemicals or hydrogenated I'm clueless.

IT is "Carrington Farms"

it says on the label
"oganic coconut oil. virgin, cold pressed"

its a 1.5kg container

I found this - there are some comments comparing it to nutivia
