Hi everyone :)


I was reading something today and I thought I would share it with you all.

I wonder if Pina Coladas would count?

Actually I have heard about coconut oils being a stimulant for the thyroid, though I can't recall where I read that. And I remember reading that you shouldn't heat the coconut oil, because the very qualities you are trying to glean from it will be lost when heated.

Also, according to the Zone diet, you can get similar benefits (while getting your daily Omega 3's, DHA, & EPA & improve your cholesterol levels) by taking pharmacuetical quality fish oil each day...I did it for a while, but really could not stand the fishy taste, so I switched back to my Flax oil/evening primrose combo.

Hmm.. sounds interesting! How do I get the coconut oil in something or alone? Worth a try at least.

Well if Pina Colada's will do the trick then I say let's get the blender out and have a party. ;-)

I know you can buy it online, but I am wondering if there are some grocery stores that are a "super" store might sell it.

Something to look into and will check out the Zone diet as well and get back to you.

Thanks,
