Why coconut oil?

tcamp | Jul 23, 2014 06:58 AM

Why is it so popular now and why, exactly, is it considered to be a paleo food? I am having a hard time figuring out how my long ago ancestors from northern Europe got their mitts on it.

Is it really nutritionally superior? I use a lot of olive oil, scary lots to be honest. Should I incorporate some coconut oil into my diet?
