Confession of a Coconut Hater


I have never liked the taste, smell or feel (on my tongue) of coconut either in other foods or on its own. In fact, I so much dislike it those that know me tease me whenever they can and even challenge me to see if I can taste it or smell it. I would not be honest if I told you that I have never eaten coconut. I have, but either reluctantly or under extreme politeness.

Lately, this has been really bothering me, given the abundance of news that coconut oil is so beneficial to our health and our mental acuity.

My dear wife, who loves coconut, found a grade and source of coconut that contains the health benefits without the taste or smell that I do not like.  I now use a teaspoon of this oil in my first cup of coffee.  Hopefully this will benefit me mentally.

For those of you like me who want the health benefits but not the traditional coconut taste or smell you can find it here:

About Gary

I am retired, but not tired. I still want to be valuable to others. I know that others are valuable to me. After looking back on six decades, I have asked myself this question: “What do I believe?” My mind filled up. My heart started beating faster. My spirit soared. I post blogs to share what my mind is working on, what my heart believes would help others and, what my spirit is communicating to me. What do I believe, you ask? Decisions dictate your path In love, not hate In tolerance, not prejudice In health, not sickness In wealth, not poverty In kindness, rudeness In happiness, not sadness In encouragement, not discouragement In faith, not doubt In courage, not fear I have been and will be challenged in each one of these beliefs, but the biggest belief is to stay positive and not turn negative. This belief helps me maintain all of the others.
