Coconut Oil Recipes For Better Life
One very interesting thing I found was that it helped my 10 year old dog get his nice healthy
coat back after being sick with liver disease. Several years ago something like hepatitis attacked Our Dog Scout’s Liver. Luckily I stumbled onto some Liver healthy recipes that have extended his life 2 years, so far, beyond what they said he would live.
He seems happy and healthy and the vet was very surprised and suggested a second ultrasound. Well at $700 I suggested if he was that interested, he could spring for the second ultrasound. Needless to say he didn’t and I was content with the fact that he was back to his old self , just with a bit less energy. His coat, however had become very dry and brittle and he had a lot of flaking of the skin on his back. After reading of the benefits of Coconut oil I started adding a tablespoonful of extra virgin coconut oil to his home cooked meal every morning and his flaking skin cleared up and his coat is once again shiny and smooth.
I have also started adding a teaspoon to my coffee every day just for that fact that it is delicious and as a night shift worker, I can use all of the immune system help I can get!
Here are some tasty coconut oil recipes I hope you will enjoy…
