And the most amazing thing is how versatile this coconut oil is. It can be used in everything, including (but not limited to) smoothies, entrees, soups, salads, condiments, desserts, etc.
I've had a chance to try out the Raspberries and Cream Breakfast Smoothie recipe, which I found at Coconut Oil Recipes. I loved it! It was refreshing, filling, and made me feel ready to face the day. Now I can't wait to try out the recipe for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.

About Tropical Traditions: (from the Tropical Traditions site)
The founders of Tropical Traditions are Brian and Marianita Shilhavy.
Brian W. Shilhavy, BA, MA
Brian earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible/Greek from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, and his Master of Arts degree in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. He is currently the CEO of Tropical Traditions, Inc., and the Editor of Health Impact News.
Marianita Jader Shilhavy, BS, CND (Certified Nutritionist/Dietician in the Philippines) earned her bachelor of science degree in nutrition in Manila. Understanding the nutrition of Filipino foods, Marianita worked for over eight years as a hospital dietician and nutritional counselor in the Philippines.
In 1998 Brian and Marianita returned to the Philippines with their three children and renovated Marianita's old family farmhouse. By this time the coconut industry was severely depressed due to the negative U.S. campaigns against tropical oils in the 1980s and 1990s. Coconut farmers could no longer support their families on the income generated from harvesting coconuts.
