Yay - Costco Winnipeg gets Organic Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut Oil arrives at Winnipeg Costco!
My hubby officially thinks I'm weird. At Costco today I spotted organic coconut oil and squealed - I knew they would get it soon. The price is awesome - about $5 per lb. You can also buy it at most grocery stores (although it can be tricky to find as its not necessarily with the other oils), health stores and bulk barn for about $8 per pound. The Costco one is a big jar but if you start using it as much as I do you will go through it or you can share it with someone. 

Why do I cook and bake with coconut oil? 

Coconut oil is made of medium chain fatty acids that are easily digested and converted to energy versus the long-chain fatty acids in polyunsaturated oils which are stored as fat. It significantly improves metabolism, slows digestion, prevents blood sugar fluctuations, and detoxifies your body. Basically it can help you lose weight, control your cravings and improve immunity. Apparently it has other uses as well - skin care, etc but I have yet to try it out. 

Now - if only they would get some Almond Flour at Costco I would be happy.


  1. Yay! Brenda sent me a message that she just bought some there too. She's been using it on Faedra as a lotion and loves that she smells like a little coconut. I will definitely buy my next jar from there.

    Don't forget to try using it for your body too. It makes an awesome moisturizer, deep conditioner and great for your dental health.

    I've even got Rowan using it as a natural organic toothpaste which helps to clean up the sugar bugs (and its ok if he swallows it too)!

    good site with lots of info of all the benefits

  2. Whats up! I just want to give an enormous thumbs up for the great information you have got right here on this post. I shall be coming back to your weblog for more soon.
