We all know that spinach is good for us - we should eat it everyday. I have also discovered Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. This has great benefits, good for your hair, skin, weight loss, lowers blood pressure, and a whole host of other things. Now I am not a doctor, but I figure if it tastes good and is good for you, you can not go wrong.
I take the coconut oil (make sure it is organic and cold pressed) and melt it in a skillet, put in a couple of cloves of garlic, then cook down the spinach in it. Sometimes I add eggs, celery, carrot, or onions - whatever I feel like. The coconut oil gives it a great flavor and at one meal I have consumed about 3-4 servings of my daily vegetables. It is a wonderful meal, and I don't miss the butter and all the other "bad" things that make spinach taste good. Enjoy!

Does anyone have recipe uses for coconut oil?
I use coconut oil for everything I'd use regular oil for. I also use it on my lips when they're dry & sometimes my skin. A jar costs about 10 dollars but it lasts forever. I don't use it in baking cakes anymore, because I stopped using oil & eggs in them as Club Soda is easier & has less calories.
Just like av8rs3 I too use it for everything. I buy it at my local grocery store. I must try the club soda in baking cakes next.
