Cooking with coconut products is a daily thing for us. Coconut is a healthy food that is very versatile. We fry virtually everything in coconut oil.  Great for high heat frying and great for you. healthy-tacos

Also when baking we have been able to replace white flour with coconut flour.  Great option without the gluten.  Coconut milk is great for drinks that require or when you desire something sweet.  A great alternative for milk especially when making homemade hot chocolate.


Also with eliminating refined sugar, we have had to be creative, especially when cooking.  Coconut sugar is a great option.  It is easily broken down by your body and tastes super yummy too. 


These are just a few ways you can work coconut into your diet to make healthy decisions when it comes to lifestyle changes.  Grace products are tremendously helpful when it comes to making these changes.  They are organic and I know that these products are good for me and my family.  With all these products and so much more, they can easily make your life easier when it comes to cooking and diet changes.  Coconut is a great option and you and your body will thank you for it.
