#WIN Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil!!

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Our family has switched to a cleaner eating lifestyle over the past.  It isn't 100% clean, but we are getting there.  The kids still enjoy a few unhealthy snacks on occasion, but I'm ok with that.


Cooking oils are some of the things I have changed out.  I have removed the majority of the unhealthy oils from our home and have replaced them all with the healthier versions.  One of those version is Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.  In the past I have purchased what the grocery store may have on hand but recently had the opportunity to try the Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. This stuff is amazing!! Since receiving this product, I have used it in place of any type of oil that I would normally cook in and everything just seems to taste better. I am not a huge fan of coconut, but I do love the taste of this oil. The coconut flavor of Tropical Traditions is very mild and not really noticeable at all when used in cooking. I sautee green beans in it, place it in my oatmeal, my smoothies and I even used it to make my own Coconut butter since I'm unable to purchase this locally.

I love the fact that it is Organic, but also for the health benefits of the Coconut Oil


Here is a recipe that I tried and it was a huge hit for the entire family.  I love finding simply yet delicious recipes that the entire family loves.  Those recipes are few and far between since I do have some picky little ones in the house. I served this atop quinoa with a side of steamed broccoli.


Seasoned Coconut Baked Salmon


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.


Remove pin bones and place fillet skin down in glass baking dish. The skin will stick to the bottom of the pan and come right off of the fillet once salmon is cooked, making it easy to separate from the meat.


Soften (if needed) but don't melt coconut oil, and spread over salmon with a butter knife, use more if necessary to completely coat. The oil will set up as it is being spread so do this quickly.


Sprinkle fillet with listed seasonings to taste. Top it off with the parmesan cheese and bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes, depending on size of fillet. Fish is done when you can separate the flakes with a fork and they appear solid. Do not overcook. After 20 min has passed, if fish is still not done, check every few minutes. Remove and serve immediately.

    For a wonderful introduction to the many benefits of coconut oil and its wide variety of uses, I strongly suggest reading "The Coconut Oil Miracle" by Dr. Bruce Fife, ND. It was a revelation for me of why cancer has become so prevalent in the last two decades.
    Have a great day!
