Skinny & Co. sent us some Coconut Oil to review!
We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. Here's some info about the benefits of Skinny Coconut Oil from their website:
Due to its high concentration of MCFAs, Skinny speeds up metabolism. Because they are so easily digested, MCFAs are immediately converted to energy, helping maintain a healthy weight. When looking at cultures that eat a coconut-rich diet, we find they are lean and obesity is rare. Even using coconut oil instead of unsaturated oils, such as corn, soy, bean, and canola can help aid in weight loss.
Coconut oil provides an alternative fuel to glucose for the brain. This fuel, known as ketones, encourages the healthy execution of important cerebral tasks. Ketones are highly neuro-protective, which leads to improved memory, cognition and attention. Ketones may also help curb cognitive decline in old age.
Containing greater than 50% lauric acid, Skinny promotes a healthy cardiovascular system. The healthy saturated fat content has shown to protect heart cells, improve the function of the thyroid and help normalize cholesterol levels.
Skinny is the earth’s richest source of a special fat called lauric acid. Also found in a mother’s milk, lauric acid helps form the immune system and protects the health of newborns. Replacing processed vegetable oils with MCFA-rich coconut oil promotes lifelong healthy immune function. This nutritious MCFA is found in infant formulas, tube feedings, and is commonly used by physicians to help patients obtain optimal health.
MCFAs in Skinny help maintain healthy insulin and blood sugar levels. Processed quickly by the liver, Skinny provides natural, long lasting energy and is much more effective than sugars, grains, and carbohydrates.
We LOVED it! We added it to our peanut butter toast, oatmeal, smoothies, and even stir fry! It gave our food a slight coconut flavor, that tasted delicious. It was also a great way to include more healthy fats into our day and it just plain tastes good!
We also made some healthy "energy bites" with only pb, coconut oil, and oats! All you have to do is melt about a cup of pb and a tbsp of coconut oil in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, and then mix in the oats with your bare hands and form into balls. EASY AND DELICIOUS! They are perfect pre-workout fuel or a snack!
