Lessons on Coconut Oil, Oil Pulling, and PiYo


Whoever said Facebook is a waste of time, is not talking with the right people or asking the right questions. A couple of nights ago, I posted this picture (above) on my social media cites, said I had secretly fried chicken in this oil, and it started a long lengthy conversation about the wonderful benefits and uses of this oil.

What are you doing with coconut oil?  Apparently you can also take a teaspoon or two of it, swish it around for about 15-20 minutes while you do your morning thing, spit it out in the waste basket, and you have just won the battle against plaque, bad breath, darkening teeth, and possibly a whole slew of oral health benefits?

I'm intrigued! 

The coconut oil conversation also branched off to include PiYo.  When I Googled those four letters, I came up with a new way to workout  combining pilates and yoga!  Who knew?!?!  When a friend told me I should try PiYo for it's healthy benefits, I made this wise crack, "Hello!  I line in Fowler, not Indy......"  Then imagine my surprise when another friend chimed in with. "They are having a Monday night class on PiYo in town start this next Monday!"

WOW!

So.... I would love to hear/read your input on experiences you have had with these two latest additions to the "Good for You" list in our ever changing world!

Learning is always a good thing!

  1. If you're curious about coconut oil pulling, I highly recommend it. Been doing it 3 wks now, keeping a diary here: http://coconutoilpulling.tumblr.com/

  2. Very interesting! I cook with coconut oil and it's also one of the main ingredients in my homemade soaps. Good luck with the PiYo. Never heard of it before.

    Would you consider enabling your email on your blog - and with Google+ I have to hunt all over just to find a way to contact you. Have you found any benefits from Google+? I'm really interested in knowing.

    Thanks for chiming on little Lucy's pic today. :-)
