thanks for the recipe -- I really like SIMPLE recipes - can't make it any easier than that
I recently picked up Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in a 16 oz tub based on a recommendation from a friend. It is like a crisco consistency and can be used in place of butter or oil and used in cooking, baking, smoothies. I got it in Wal Mart in the natural herb and vitamin area. Almost $10 if I recall. She swears by it for helping a weight loss diet - helps to suppress appetite, (slow metabolism maybe???) soothing for the digestive tract for IBS and UC related things. etc. Use 1-2 teaspoons each day.
I got it more for me than him (as I need to lose some weight) but I wonder if a teaspoon per day might help him also. Gonna keep it near the stove to remind me to try to incorporate it in cooking.
It smells real good too.
