Day 1 - 31 days to a REAL FOOD kitchen makeover

Are you excited about this new series? There is so much info to share and only 31 days to do! So lets get started.

The number one staple in our home is coconut oil. I use it in almost all of my cooking. My husband often jokes that I think coconut oil can save the world. That's a little bit of a stretch but there is very little coconut oil can't do. 

(this is the brand that we use and love) 

What we use it for:
I use it in place of butter, margarine or olive oil for cooking. When I make the kids a grilled cheese sandwich instead of buttering both sides I put coconut oil on it. I use it when I am sautéing vegetables, whipping up some scrambled eggs, or browning chicken. I also use it to season my cast iron skillet. 

Why it's good:

Before using coconut oil I used a lot of olive oil. The problem with olive oil is that at high temperatures it turns into trans fat. Trans fat is very bad for you. It raises your bad cholesterol levels and lowers your good cholesterol levels. Olive oil is good for making salads but should never be heated. Coconut oil can be used at high temperatures without turning rancid or losing its healthy properties. It can aid in weight loss, boost your metabolism, it has anti-fungal properties, can be used in beauty products and so much more. Here is a blog post that compares the different oils. 

What you should throw out:

Please throw out your margarine, vegetable oil, and regular butter. (raw or grassfed butter is ok. We will discuss this in a different post) Here is a wonderful post on why you should get rid of these things. 

Because people don't have a lot of free time my goal is to make these posts short and sweet but on occasion I will link to other posts so you can read further about different points. I hope you enjoy this new series!

  6. In Paul's writing in the bible, he said "the things that I want to do I do not do but the things that I do not want to do that is what I see myself doing...who will save me from this body of death?" It baffles me all the time when It comes to nutrition, I see people eating the very foods that is not good for them even when they know that the foods they are eating is not good for them. Perhaps Paul's writing in the bible shows that this is probably a human nature. In my article I stress the importance of sticking with a healthy diet for weight loss and healthy fit. 토토먹튀검증
