Did You Know: Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts!

Although coconut oil is a saturated fat, the thick, pasty substance is touted for its many advantages, like helping maintain cholesterol levels or achieve glowing skin and hair.

Coconut oil has a delicious taste and is great when added to recipes for a flavorful punch, but it’s not calorie-free. It’s recommended using only 2 tablespoons a day or less if possible, as even that small amount will pack on about 30 grams of fat.
