$3.99 as of 11-29-14 (Featured in Episode #76)

Spectrum Naturals – Coconut Oil Organic, 14 oz liquid

$6.21 as of 11-29-14

Forbidden Rice is a black rice with a delightful, almost fruity flavor and a dense, sticky texture.  When it is cooked it looks black from afar, but up close it is closer to the color of blackberries.  This is due to the high level of antioxidants called anthrocyanin, the same that is found in blackberries, blueberries, and other dark purple foods.  No wonder it has a delicate fruity flavor! Coconut oil is an ideal cooking oil due to it’s flavor neutral qualities and high flash point. It also has a boatload of nutritional benefits and is a great butter alternative for cooking and baking due to its solid-when-cool, liquid-when-warm properties.
