Coconut oil is the jam! I love it on toast with cinnamon for breakfast. And on my dry skin. I swear it’s miracle food.

This question is for Lori. I’m wondering about your pregnancy workouts and how you feel about them now that you are post-partum and struggling with diastasis recti? I know you mentioned in previous posts (briefly) that you wished you’d done certain things differently and been more careful. Knowing what you know now and given your experience, do you still consider the workouts you posted for pregnant women to be “pregnancy-safe”? Are there certain moves that you did while pregnant that you wouldn’t do again, and wouldn’t recommend that other women do?

I had considered coconut oil also but that is kind of greasy feeling so I didn’t think I’d like it on my face. I do use that as body moisturizer almost exclusively. I cover my body in it when I get out of the shower and then let it sink in. It really does help! But I did not use it in food, i might try it after read your article

I too am a huge fan of coconut oil and all the many uses it has, so many have only JUST now discovered it for cooking but, have yet to see how it works as a cleanser, or a facial mask, moisturizer, and oil puller. But have to say you’ve taught me stuff I didn’t realize about it here now too!

Awesome! Welcome to the coconut oil club haha

Thank you both so much for sharing valuable information and your experiences. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to hear what is being said because one person starts talking over the other. One of you will be in the middle of making a point and the other will interrupt her before she is finished. I’ve been wanting to mention this for a while but did not want to offend anyone. I love that you share you experiences with the world and encourage others to be their healthy, happy selves.

thanks Jen, yes we realize we do this, and it’s just habit for us. We don’t mean to do it, it just happens. We will continue to work on it.
