A few years ago I was introduced to Tropical Traditions and their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. What a blessing it’s been to our family! As we’ve used this coconut oil more and more we’ve been recognizing that it has many uses not limiting itself to cooking. If you’ve never used coconut oil it is a bit surprising at first to realize that at room temperature it is actually more of a solid. When warmed/heated it will become the more expected liquid state.
While pursuing this adoption I have been doing what I can to continue eating healthy. One way I have been able to do this is to make much of our food from scratch. Popcorn is a family favorite snack. We’ve been using this recipe for a few years with great success. The Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is so simple to cook with, has a fantastic flavor, and smells heavenly! When trying other brands that are not virgin coconut oil and are mass produced we quickly realized there is a superior quality offered Tropical Traditions Gold Label vs. the alternatives.
As we prepare for our little one’s arrival we are hoping to use an alternatives to commercial formula. We have a trusted medical professional who has shared a recipe for a homemade formula that she herself has used with her little one with great success. In almost all recipes coconut oil is an essential ingredient to aid in baby’s digestion. We will certainly be using the Tropical Traditions coconut oil that we’ve come to love and trust for its superior quality.
Although it is higher than what you may find at your local store, I think it’s worth the extra for the quality of what you receive in the Gold Label. If you sign up for their newsletter they are often offering sales to lower the price and make it even more affordable! Another reason I am willing to spend a little more is Tropical Traditions founder, Brian Shilhavy, has purposefully chosen to boldly speak his personal testimony (in multiple languages!) and shares Christ on his company website. I respect him for doing so.
