Yes, coconut is the oil of choice for me-- cooking-wise, not skin care. I must admit to using shortening for pie crusts (I make my own, Daniel). I've never tried coconut oil (crusts). Too darn expensive. How did your pie turn out, Daniel?

Changing subjects: I'm trying to go more vegetarian, but I still have to clear my freezer of meat. So tonight, I'm using my George Foreman grill to cook a bison burger. At least bison meat isn't as bad as cow meat--or so they say.

Really, Qiana?! You mean it does come back to "normal"?

My hair took 3 years to stop being a matted, tightly curled, scouring pad.

I met with a nutritionist immediately after being diagnosed with cancer; it was part of the protocol at Cancer Care Northwest where they offered all kinds of care besides chemicals, radiation, and surgery. The nutritionist recommended coconut oil for everything: eating, skincare, and hair care. My hair has been wire-like, resembles a Chore Girl Scouring Pad, since chemo. The family and I hope that eventually the hair will take on the look of hair after several cuttings. I am tempted to just keep my head shaved. The good news, I have my eyelashes and eyebrows back.

Coconut oil is good for cooking and it doesn't have a strong flavour that spoils your food. You can also use it for skin care and a small dollop will make a cat happy.

Hmmmm....coconut oil, I may just try a small batch with that & see how it is.

Plan for today: Go out and cut some rhubarb. Make a pie.

Randy, do you buy crust or make your own?

I like my canola-based piecrust, but I read that polyunsaturated oils are no longer on the best-for-you list. In pie crust, olive oil leaves and off flavor. Now that saturated fats are somewhat rehabilitated, maybe try coconut oil? I don't know how that will turn out.

Love rhubarb pie!

Comment by Randall Smith on May 17, 2016 at 6:55am

'Tis rhubarb season! So, I made a pie. Yum yum.

Thanks for your input, Daniel:

Same with my sister, a vegan. She's had breast cancer and iron deficiency. My dad ate meat all his life and lived past 97. So who knows? I think I'll just compromise. Like my every other "no sugar day", perhaps I'll alternate. At the least, I plan to cut back on meat consumption. I certainly have plenty of fruits and vegetables available--fresh and freezer.
