Need a great source for great coconut oil at a great price? You probably know that bulk is the way to buy good, health promoting foods to get them down to prices that are more affordable.
But, do you know why you should be using coconut oil? Raw, Extra Virgin, Organic Coconut Oil is one of the absolute best oils, with great health benefits. In fact, I’m still adding to a book I’m writing on it that I thought I had done almost a year ago. There is just so many wonderful things to share about Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. But for this post, I’ll let you read a bit about it from someone else – with impressive initials after their name. 🙂 Then, at the end of this post, I’ll let you know how you can get GREAT Coconut Oil at a GREAT price!
“A common question that many people have is whether or not food should be eaten uncooked. I personally believe that consuming a majority of your food uncooked is a cornerstone of optimal health.
“Typically, the less processed and heat-treated the food is, the more nutritious and healthier it is going to be.
“Nevertheless, most people prefer to cook their food, at least occasionally. When you do, you’re going to cook with some form of oil.
“The question is, what’s the best, healthiest type of oil to use when cooking?
“Dr. Rudi Moerck has studied oils for a long time, and offers some intriguing insights in this interview.
Cooking with Tropical Oils – Your Healthiest Alternative
“I have, for many years now, recommended coconut oil on the basis and the supposition that it doesn’t contain much unsaturated fat. As a result, it’s not going to be damaged by heat and create trans fats like some other oils. (Another tropical oil that is very similar is palm oil.) …
“Earlier this week I published an entire special report on the health benefits of coconut oil, which include:
- Promoting heart health
- Promoting weight loss, when needed
- Supporting your immune system health
- Supporting a healthy metabolism
- Providing you with an immediate energy source
- Keeping your skin healthy and youthful looking
- Supporting the proper functioning of your thyroid gland
“Part of what makes coconut oil such a healthful oil for cooking is that 50 percent of the fat content in coconut oil is a fat rarely found in nature called lauric acid. This is also one of the features that distinguishes coconut oil from other saturated fats.
“Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has potent anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties.
“In addition, coconut oil is about 2/3 medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also called medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs. These types of fatty acids also produce a host of health benefits.
“Best of all, coconut oil is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage, which you cannot say for other oils. In fact, it’s so stable you can even use if for frying (although I don’t recommend frying your food for a number of health reasons).
“I recommend using coconut oil in lieu of every other oil, whether your recipe calls for butter, olive oil, vegetable oil or margarine.”
The way to get Raw, Extra Virgin, Organic Coconut Oil (with the best health benefits) at the best price is to buy it in 5 gallon buckets. This will last you quite a while, but it will keep well (2-3 years.) If you have a very small family and don’t use much, you can share a bucket with friends and all enjoy the savings. (Although you should be using raw coconut oil regularly for all it’s health benefits. It is a GOOD fat!)
Me & My House has 5 gallon buckets of Extra Virgin (Raw) Organic Coconut Oil at great prices for you, and we can have our supplier ship them directly to you to avoid higher shipping costs. Extra Virgin Organic Centrifuge Extracted Coconut Oil (highest quality, and very mild tasting – excellent in everything) is currently $225 for a 5 gallon bucket or Extra Virgin Organic Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil (still raw, just slightly more coconut-y taste – awesome in raw desserts and other recipes) is $205 for a 5 gallon bucket. Plus Shipping – which we offer at subsidized (reduced) prices. We also offer smaller sizes for those wanting a cheaper up front price (but more expensive per ounce.)
You can order on our Whole and Living foods catalog page.
I know that can be a large chunk all at once for some of you, but this amount lasts our large family over a year and a half, and the 5 gallon bucket saves you about $100 over the 1 gallon price, which is a big savings over the small jar price. So if you can’t swing the full amount, find a couple friends to share a bucket with, and order more often.
I’ve used several different company’s extra virgin/raw organic coconut oils and I am very pleased with this one. It comes from Wilderness Family.
