So a couple months ago I decided I was going to eat healthier, thanks to my best friend Danielle Sereda.
She came over to my house and was talking to me about ways I could eat healthier. Danielle told me that I needed to try replacing butter or oil with Coconut Oil. I at first was like... NO WAY! It sounded so gross. I decided to go over to her house so she could make me some chicken using coconut oil so I could try it. It was amazing! I loved the taste so I ran over to Costco and picked up some organic coconut oil (link above). I think my big tub cost about $13.00, so it wasn't very expensive! Since I started using it I have used it in my hair, on my face, for cooking, and moisturizer! It is truly amazing! My big tub should last me a long time, it has a shelf life for 2 years which is awesome!
This is my best friend, Danielle, at my wedding!
She is one of the best people I know, and I know a lot of people :) She also is probably the healthiest person I know, besides her sisters and mother! She is my tree huger, my best friend, my child's god mother, and I go to her for everything. Thank you, Danielle for making my life a little bit healthier and introducing me to Coconut Oil.
