Summer is over, my coconut oil no longer pours out of its plastic container, and it’s time to get the spoon out when I use it for cooking.
By the way, did I tell you about the big faux pax I made this summer when my 32 oz Nutiva coconut oil arrived? It was, as it always is in the summer, pure liquid at room temperature. Because the big container invaded precious cupboard space, I poured some into a long-neck bottle and found a home for the big container in the fridge. My plan worked great to pour from the bottle whenever I needed it – until the weather changed to a cool 70 degrees. No such luck trying to pour an oil that’s solid at the now-room temperature.
So what comes with fall but holiday parties, events, and… plenty of eating?
Here’s what works for me to keep myself feeling “full” and less likely to snack on the filler foods:
Coconut Oil Appetite Suppressant:
Add 1 Tbs coconut oil to your favorite hot tea before breakfast, or anytime you’re heading out to a calorie-consuming holiday event. You’ll feel more full and less likely to fill up on the junk.
