This is my morning tonic with a dollop of virgin coconut oil. Works well for Atkins dieters!
Is that as nasty as it sounds? I mean, it sounds effective?, but… lol
Hah! Well, it isn’t awesome, but here is the deal: I love coconut oil as cooking oil and spread on low-carb toast with peanut butter and in cooking, etc. But I take coconut oil as a supplement, which means I have to down a lot of it during the day. It is very disagreeable to swallow oil (no matter how good it tastes in food) on its own, so adding it to a hot beverage helps. Since this tisane is also part of my regimen, it makes sense to combine them.
Sorry you asked? :-)
Well at 1st I read “olive” oil (brain on default, I suppose)… but coconut oil even sounds nasty (even if I would love coconut) lol.
Hah! Coconut oil, particularly virgin coconut oil is actually really good. One of the best oils for green veggies. I put broccoli, etc, into a pan (dry) and let them cook a bit, then at the end of the cooking, I lower the heat and put in some coconut oil. (Virgin coconut oil doesn’t do well at high temperatures for too long.) It melts on contact, and I toss the veggies around. A little bit of salt, and ooh, so good!
lol well I like neither broccoli or coconut:) Go figure why I’m so in love w/matcha based on my dislike for greens lol.
This tonic combo actually sounds delicious! I have to try it. I love coconut oil!
Stephanie: At the very least, it works, and isn’t a bad start to the morning.
