Virgin Coconut Oil the book Review and Giveaway!

Coconut Oil is a great alternative to other cooking oils!  I was recently introduced to it from Tropical Traditions! I have been using it in cooking and have found lots of great recipes in their book, Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives, and how it can change yours!  This books tells the story about how they came to find coconut oil and it's benefits, and offers amazing recipes!  This book is the result of four years of research and feedback from thousands of people who have begun to incorporate Virgin Coconut Oil into their diet.  I was so excited to see all the other stories and it also helped teach me more about coconut oil and its uses!
