Coconut Love


Yesterday we went to a beautiful place called Ft. Mountain in Chatsworth, GA.  It was just under an hour drive and so, so well worth it.  It is a State Park and will definitely be somewhere we visit often from now on.  I've been to a lot of beaches growing up on the gulf side of Florida, but I have made my home just outside Chattanooga, TN.  This city won me over with it's views of mountains and some of the best hiking in the South.  I sometimes miss the beach and am currently counting the days (37) till our vacation in May.  I really enjoyed the lake beach at Ft. Mountain, the sand between my toes, the kids building castles...it was lovely!
I must confess we did get sunburned.  My third little love and myself got the worst of it.  So today I have been researching herbal remedies for sunburn.  And what I came across made me so happy.  Coconut Oil!!  I swear there isn't anything Coconut Oil doesn't do.
Here's just a few:
Hair Care
Skin Care
Weight Loss
Immunity
Digestion
Heart Disease and now
Sunburn!!!!
I buy this stuff by the gallon!  From Green Pastures.  They also sell Fermented Cod Liver Oil, which is also one of the best supplements you can take for DHA because it is also high in Vitamin D and A.  These are both common deficiencies among Americans.  You can read some about my family's journey and how Vitamin A and D played a part in healing my husband.
Well, here's to sunshine!  And coconut!...I have "If you like Pina Coladas" in my head!

Love and Butter,

Mishelle
