Grab a Kelapo coconut oil sample at the box this week!
The generous folks at Kelapo sent us some coconut oil samples to share with the CFM community, so come & get ’em!
If you’re new to the Paleo diet or haven’t yet attended a Food as Fuel workshop, you may not realize that CFM recommends you eat a diet of meat & vegetables, nuts & berries, some fruit, little starch & no sugar. That, my friends, is the Paleo diet in a (coco)nut shell.
But seriously, if I have to retrain one more former low-fat dieter’s brain that THE RIGHT FATS ARE GOOD FOR YOU, I’m gonna scream. Eat more fat, people!
And coconut is one of the best fats for you. It’s my favorite cooking oil. And for the CFMasseuses out there, it also makes a lovely massage oil. Hubba hubba.
Read more about it from Dr. Mercola here, or for the click-thru lazies out there, I’ll bring an excerpt directly to you:
According to Nubo Beauty, coconut oil is also nature’s richest source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also called medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs. By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs.
LCTs are large molecules, so they are difficult for your body to break down and are predominantly stored as fat.
But MCTs, being smaller, are easily digested and immediately burned by your liver for energy — like carbohydrates, but without the insulin spike. MCTs actually boost your metabolism and help your body use fat for energy, as opposed to storing it, so it can actually help you become leaner.
That’s right, fat can help you get leaner! So snag a sample at the box and sauté up some veggies with it… Or give that lucky someone a massage. Thanks Kelapo!
