- Robbie (he and I are buds, so I am going to call him that) was first introduced to drugs at age 6… Everything downwardly spiraled from there
- Coconut Oil was deemed a KILLER thanks to it being 100% saturated fat **GASP**
… But they have both come back into the spotlight as superheros!
While Robbie went to jail and rehab to overcome his “demons,” coconut oil went under the scientific microscope and relinquished its “unhealthy” misnomer!
Watch the latest GiGi Eats to see just how SUPER Coconut Oil truly is… Oh, and you can do FAR MORE with the oil, than just cook with it!
SO TELL ME:
- Do you have a “lovely bunch of coconuts”?
- Are you a fan of Robert Downey Jr.?
- How do you use coconut oil?
- Did you know coconut oil can fight crime?
- Does saturated fat scare you?
- What’s your favorite source of fat?
- Would you ever put coconut oil in your hair like I did? (You have to watch the video to see that – HA!)
- If you could rub coconut oil on any celebrity, who would it be?
- Imagine a slip and slide but instead of with water, with coconut oil! (oh whoops, that’s not a question)
