Only reason I am posting ads, just price comparison. Good for Members to know where they can get this good stuff. ilinda told us about actual RAW coconut butter so this sounds good!
ilinda may have a better deal... I've just begun to scope out the prices... I've not ordered or tried it yet, but will...
...

Artisana
Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter
14 oz jar   (50)
Retail Price: $12.45
Our Price: $9.45 (Save 24%)
I cannot find what I've paid for it, but the raw, organic Artisana coconut butter is the thing!  I'm trying to save it for eating, cooking, etc., and use the non-raw for oil pulling.

Am having a camera glitch so cannot post pics right now from cellphone, but need to remember to take pics with other devices and post.  I do think about $10-12 is what it was costing, per bottle.  But also recall, recently the type (there seem to be many) I was getting went from 16 oz. to 14 oz. jars.

Another thing is that I never did sign up for Amazon Prime, but have found that often my stuff arrives lightening fast, and the box is often wrapped in the Black Amazon Prime tape!  Sometimes I get the service w/o having signed up for it.  Anyway, I'm sold on the raw organic coconut oil for food purposes.

note from Yowbarb:
I have dropped about 5 pounds on the bulletproof coffee and just staying away from any carbs the first part of the day... Added omega 3 fish to my lifestyle again.

Your Omega-3 Family Shopping List

Omega-3s can help lower your risk of heart disease. These healthy fats are being added to everything from eggs to peanut butter. You can also get them naturally in fish, including salmon and tuna.

There are different types of omega-3s: ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

Your body can turn ALA into DHA and EPA, though not very efficiently. So, many dietitians recommend getting DHA and EPA. (Plant based ALA is only about 10% as effective as marine based DHA and EPA.) While there's no standard recommendation for how many omega-3s we need, suggestions range from 500 to 1,000 milligrams (mg) daily. You can find more than 500 mg in a can of tuna or a few ounces of salmon. Some fortified foods offer 100 mg or more.

Bring this shopping list the next time you go to the supermarket.

Fish: Top Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Look for seafood rich in omega-3s, such as:

Halibut
Herring
Mackerel
Oysters
Salmon
Sardines
Trout
Tuna (fresh)
Dairy and Juices Fortified With Omega-3s

You'll likely find the following foods fortified with omega-3 fatty acids:

Eggs
Margarine
Milk
Juice
Soy milk
Yogurt
Grains and Nuts With Omega-3s

Bread and pasta are some of the foods most commonly enriched with omega-3s. You'll also find them in whole foods like seeds and nuts. When shopping, look for omega-3s in:

Bread
Cereal
Flaxseed
Flour
Pasta
Peanut butter
Oatmeal
Pumpkin seeds
Pizza, packaged
Flour tortillas
Walnuts

Fresh Produce With ALA Omega-3s

Vegetables, especially green leafy ones, are rich in ALA, one form of omega-3 fatty acids. Although ALA isn't as powerful as the other omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, these vegetables also have fiber and other nutrients, as well as omega-3s.

Brussels sprouts
Kale
Mint
Parsley
Spinach
Watercress
Oil With ALA Omega-3s

Oils can be a good source of ALA omega-3s, too, including:

Canola oil
Cod liver oil
Flaxseed oil
Mustard oil
Soybean oil
Walnut oil
Baby Food With Omega-3s

Research suggests that the omega-3 fatty acid DHA may help babies' brains develop, which is why you can find them in:

Baby cereals
Infant formula
Jars of baby food
Other Omega-3-Enhanced Products

You can also find omega-3s in:

Supplements
Children and adult vitamins
Meal replacement bars
Protein powders
Weight loss shakes
As with most nutrients, whole foods trump any enriched, fortified, or processed foods. Omega fatty acids can oxidize if overly processed or allowed to become stale, so fresh is best.

Getting more than 3 grams a day of omega-3s may make bleeding more likely. You're not likely to get that much from a typical diet. Talk with your doctor before taking high doses of omega-3 supplements.
