Coconut oil is great for the digestive system. It is also a very healthy type of fat.
My dietician recommended that I add 1/8 tsp to my oatmeal every day. You can hardly taste it and it's very easy on the stomach.
One of my frequent meals/snacks looks like this:
1/2 c. quick cooking Quaker Oats
1 c. water
dash of salt (good for POTS)
1/8 tsp coconut oil
1/4 c. skim milk
After cooking the oats, add the coconut oil and stir it in well. Next add the frozen raspberries and mix them into the oatmeal. After about 30 seconds they should be fairly defrosted. Then I add the salt and raisins. Finally I add the milk last. I usually leave the milk on top of the oatmeal and don't bother mixing it in.
There are so many possibilities with oatmeal though! I love experimenting with new combinations. This just happens to be my go-to combo.
