Saturated in goodstuffs. Unless you've been sleeping under a rock for the last few years, you're aware of the emergence of coconut oil as a food to be reckoned with. Previously misunderstood, and even vilified by the margarine lobby, coconut is having its day in the warm desert island sun. As one of our personal favorite superfoods, because of the rich creamy texture and flavor, its fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health — everything from fat loss and heart health, to better brain function and cholesterol. With its unique combination of nutrients like super healthy medium chain triglyceride fatty acids and lauric acid, coconut oil is one of our treasured daily foods. Just ask indigenous peoples like the Tokelauans in the South Pacific, who have eaten it for generations and by all measure might be considered among the healthiest people on the planet. Try it in smoothies, as a cooking oil, or just plain dried as a snack. But work it into your life. It's a true friend.
