Cooking with coconut oil is a very healthy alternative to cooking with butter, and if you are worried that all of your food will start tasting like coconuts, not to worry, because it won't. You may notice a slight coconut flavour at first but you get used to it over time.
Some people may wonder "Is coconut oil healthy to cook with?" and yes, it absolutely is. It is possibly one of the more healthy oils we can cook with because it has a high burning point, which means that it can get very hot before it becomes toxic. Coconut oil nutrition is also something to consider when you are choosing this great oil to cook with. The nutritional properties of coconut oil show that it is very high in saturated fat, but not the kind of saturated fat you might be thinking of that comes from butter or fatty meats. The saturated fat from coconut oil has Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) which are able to be used as a great source of energy by the body. Coconut oil also contains Lauric Acid which helps to ward off different types of fungi and bacteria in the body as well.
So you might now be wondering, "Where do I buy coconut oil?". Where to buy coconut oil depends on where you live, but in North America, usually you can find it at any grocery store. You will be so thrilled with the different ways you can use it too. Coconut oil is not only great to use in all recipes including baking recipes, dinner recipes, salad recipes and more. Coconut oil is also amazing to use as body lotion, hair oil and even for brushing your teeth if you can believe it. Hope you enjoy these great homemade tortilla wraps made with coconut oil.
