The best part? You don't need to be a nutrition expert or foodie to make use of this trendy superfood. Here are a few low-investment, high-return ways to incorporate coconut oil into your diet.

In fact, one study among lean, heart disease- and stroke-free Pacific Islanders who consumed up to 63 percent of their calories from coconut fat found total cholesterol rose but so did their “good” HDL ...

Why You Need to Be Using Coconut Oil

While you’ve likely heard that the ingredient should be added to your daily meals as it touts healthy vitamins, minerals, and that good kind of fat (and hopefully you’ve cooked your morning scrambled eggs in it for a delicious flavor boost!), this natural potion boasts far more clout outside the kitchen, too ...

I drink coconut water, cook with coconut milk and coconut oil. I use coconut oil on my natural hair. Coconut shells are also good as mulch in your flower beds. Mmmm...pineapple, coconut smoothie. And if u want a bolder smoothie...add some coconut rum with crushed ice.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
