Angry coconut oil ...

...gives me heartburn! i've tried eating it after meals (the first time i tried it -- i've only tried it once --), it was refrigerated and took kind of a long time to chip out as it was hardened ... i took about 1 tablespoon of it and didn't find it oogie, but not that delectable either ... how do i use it??

blech, i think, but onwards and upwards! ...

It kind of messed up my stomach a little also. One day later my stomach was very gurgly all day. I stir fried broccoli with the oil and it came out ok.

Jinglebits -Why are you refrigerating the coconut oil? Leave it in a cabinet and it should liquify (unless you keep your home really cool). No reason to refrigerate it; it won't go bad for years left out. If you can't handle it straight, use it to fry chicken or fish or even eggs. Put it baked goods; heard it makes cookies really yummy, but haven't tried that one yet. My dr told me her patients are putting it in smoothies and shakes.

JB-
I can't even look at the jar of coconut oil anymore! That one time I took it straight I though I'd hurl and felt sick the whole next day! :frown: I would like to try the popcorn cooked in it. Maybe I should start baking with it also, but still can't get past that gag reflex when I look at the jar.

thanks ... learned that you DON'T have to refrigerate it (dunno where i got the idea that one did), took a teaspoon of it today (yuck -- it's so TASTELESS), will try one tonite too, and will fry eggs in it ...

looking forward to my weight loss any time soon now ...

JB,

I just tried it on steamed rice, just a drizzle of it with some salt on basmati rice and it was rather yummy. If you can't handle the oil, then remember you can get a little of the medicinal properties of it by consuming coconut. You just have to eat a lot.

Hey Jingle I was just thinking Zagnut candy bars is another way to get our daily coconut oil allotment. But how many should we eat?

Not sure but my guess would be they have hydrogenated coconut oil and ALOT of sugar. But they sure are good!

Yep. I bet they are not good for you!!
I actually like cooking with the oil. I got Spectrum, all I could find in Reno. I cook eggs in it and if I fry anything like potatoes or veggies. I find it pretty good.
