Skin snacks: be good to your body and eat veggies that have Vitamin A. Both carrots and sweet potatoes are a good source of this vitamin, so why not bake some carrot crisps or sweet potato fries using coconut oil. Super tasty.

Fake cake: Scoop out some vanilla pods or add a drop or two of organic vanilla extract to some melted coconut oil and you’ve got an instant low sugar dessert topping. For a healthier version, drizzle your vanilla coconut oil over fresh fruit.

Healthier movie snacks: Every healthista’s secret fave, ditch packets of popcorn and make your own. Popping kernels into a pan of coconut oil means you can skip adding salt or sugar. Hurrah. It’s a lower salt ‘n’ sugar movie treat with enhanced natural nuttiness. Be warned: this snack is seriously addictive.
