How to get started taking MCT oil.
MCT oil has a very light texture that really has no flavor, so it is easily added to all kinds of foods and beverages. It’s recommended to start off with about 1 teaspoon and work up to your desired amount. If you start off with too much, you may have to go the bathroom frequently, but hey, regularity is a plus! I recommend you source some from your favorite locally owned health food store! If you travel a lot, you can find little serving size packets to take with you!
Super Charge Your Coffee.
Add a teaspoon or two to your coffee, how ever you take it! If the oily texture throws you off, you can throw it in the blender to emulsify.
Drizzle Over Your Food.
You can literally add a teaspoon or two to just about anything. Over salad seems obvious, but what about in your oatmeal, chili, or on the bread of your sandwich?
