Zucchini with Coconut Oil

What oil do you use for cooking? Most of us use sunflower, canola, olive, etc and we don’t realize that all the good properties of those oils disappear with high heat, these oils are heavy on digestion. Without certain enzymes, they get stored in our body as fat.

Meanwhile coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods on earth. You could easily incorporate it into your daily diet. Add it to your morning smoothie, use it as a spread, use it anywhere to replace butter, bake with it and cook with it!

Here is a simple easy recipe to start trying out coconut oil.

Cut zucchini into thin slices and sauté them in coconut oil. Add some sea salt and pepper to taste.

Zucchini is a good source of protein, vit A, vit C, omega-3 essential oil, folate, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and others.
