Free Shipping and 50% off Palm Shortening!

It’s a Merry Christmas from Healthy Traditions! I love it when they offer this!

Through the 25th, Healthy Traditions (formerly Tropical Traditions) is offering free ground shipping and 50% off Palm Shortening. We have no choice but to stock up on this gem! (Sales like this usually only come about once each year.)


How I use Palm Shortening

I use Palm Shortening for these five main purposes and recipes:

Palm Shortening is flavorless, so it will not change the taste of your fried foods or baked goods! We often hear that “all fried food is bad” but it’s important to note that food fried in coconut oil or palm shortening is perfectly healthy! This is because these particular oils can withstand the high temps required for frying without going rancid! There are oh so many French fried reasons to love Palm Shortening!

Whole Wheat Quick Baking Mix – amazing stuff, made with Palm Shortening!

What to do with Palm Shortening

I keep Palm Shortening on hand at all times to use in any recipe that calls for Crisco. Crisco=BAD. Our bodies don’t like it. But Palm Shortening=GOOD! Our bodies digest this fat and can utilize it for energy!

Warning: Some companies who sell Palm Oil and Palm Shortening are doing so irresponsibly and hurting the forests. I’ve researched this and found that Healthy Traditions is providing this oil for us in every safe and responsible way! That, along with its health benefits, make me always buy Palm Shortening from Healthy Traditions. From their website:

Tropical Traditions Palm Shortening comes from small scale family farms in South America. These farmers are certified by ProForest, which ensures that they meet strict social, environmental and technical criteria. With regard to environmental criteria, the assessments are carried out at the landscape and operational level at both the farms and processing facilities. These assessments cover environmental impact on the soil, water, air, biodiversity and local communities. The lands the farmers use are not lands that were deforested. The lands used to grow the palm fruit are lands previously used for agricultural purposes (cattle, rice, banana).

Guess who’s making pies this weekend!?

This is the time of year I go through quite a bit of Palm Shortening and learn all over again why I love it so much. I always watch for it to go on sale and sync up with a free shipping weekend at Tropical Traditions. That time is now!!

Whole Wheat Pie Crust

How to Make Your Own Frozen Pies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is super and easy.

Plus, it’s chocolate with peanut butter so I don’t think I need to give you more reasons for why it is so amazing.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Apple Pie is an old standby and a must at Christmas.


Of course I’m making Pumpkin Pies.

Sometimes I cut the sugar down and we eat them for breakfast. Nobody argues.


Honey Pecan Pie will amaze you.

Most recipes call for corn syrup. This one calls for honey. So good!

Finally! Free Shipping and 45% Off Palm Shortening at the Same Time!

Man, I’ve been waiting for this one!! It’s hard for me to fork it out for shipping on something heavy like Palm Shortening (because I’m spoiled…and I like to save money). I’ve been needing palm shortening, but I was waiting for it to go on sale and sync up with a free shipping weekend. I waited, and I waited, and I waited…

Here it is! It is a free shipping weekend at Tropical Traditions AND their Organic Palm Shortening is 45% off through Sunday! $26.89 for a gallon…yes please.


How do I use Palm Shortening?

Well first of all, it’s almost pie baking season. Palm Shortening is a fantastic, healthy alternative to Crisco when making pie crusts (because our bodies can digest it well). I fry foods in it because it can withstand high temperatures without becoming hydrogenated (this is rare for a fat!). I use palm shortening to make my Whole Wheat Quick Baking Mix (like Bisquik), which is then used to make all kinds of goodies.

My Favorite Ways to Use Palm Shortening (and why it's good for you)

Yes, I love palm shortening.

Heard about the deforestation problem that accompanies the harvest of palm oil? This is not an issue where Tropical Traditions is concerned. They practice safe and environmentally friendly methods of palm tree farming. Read more details here. You can trust Tropical Traditions when it comes to healthy, nourishing food and the care of the earth.

Find the Organic Shortening here. Use the code 21159 at checkout to receive free shipping. The sale price is only good through Sunday, September 20. Stock up time!

Enjoy the FREE Gift of a 32 Ounce Jar of Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions This Weekend!

I love it when Tropical Traditions offers this! It’s a 4th of July special…pretty much the best one of the year. We can all put a 32-ounce jar of Organic Gold Label Coconut Oil – the best of the best (seriously, my favorite of all coconut oils) – into our cart at a price of $0.00. (Click here then scroll down to find it and put it into your cart.


Here’s the nitty-gritty: We have to pay shipping on our order, and they require a minimum purchase of $19.00. This is fair, plus it means that we can choose some additional goodies for our family while we enjoy our big free jar of oil!

Here are some great sales they are running alongside the freebie that you might want to consider to achieve your $19 minimum:

Organic Palm Shortening is on sale 45% off! I use this stuff like crazy. I’m grabbing a bucket to go with my free oil.


Organic Gold Label Coconut Oil (just like the free one above) is Buy-One-Get-One-Free. So pretty much I’m getting three jars of this oil in my order and only paying for one. (Although never would I actually pay $40 for one jar of their oil. I don’t care how great it is. I wait for it to go on sale – every time. This is the best sale I’ll come across. I’m taking advantage!)

Pure Coconut Oil (one of their odorless, flavorless varieties) is on sale Buy-TWO-Get-TWO-Free. This is an awesome deal. I’m not getting any this time because I’m well stocked up on this variety, but I wanted to be sure and point it out in case you need some. That’s a great price per jar ($11.25 each).

Tropical Traditions Pure Coconut Oil

If you don’t need additional coconut oil or palm shortening along with your free jar of oil – here’s a hint to keep your shipping costs lower:

Order some soap. I super love their Coconut Oil Soaps. This is the only kind I use and the only kind our son Malachi (who has very sensitive skin) uses. He even uses it to wash his hair.


Anyway, their soaps are wonderful and don’t weigh much. This keeps shipping costs lower if you want to simply add some of those to your cart along with the FREE coconut oil to reach your cart minimum.

And if you just can’t find anything else to get, and you want to keep your shipping costs low – order some chocolate. It’s for a good cause. :)

BONUS: If you are a brand new customer with Tropical Traditions and you click through the referral links in this post – along with your free jar of coconut oil, you’ll receive a free  Virgin Coconut Oil Book with your order.

These offers are good through Sunday, July 5.

Go grab your free coconut oil! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Palm Shortening for $0.24 Per Ounce – FREE SHIPPING at Tropical Traditions This Weekend

Need Palm Shortening for that Super Creamy Peanut Butter you’re planning to make? Or so that you can make Whole Wheat Pie Crust? How about Whole Wheat Quick Mix?

I keep waiting for the Organic Palm Shortening to go on sale at a deeper discount at Tropical Traditions, and for that amazing sale price to coincide with a free shipping weekend. It keeps not happening. However, I see that the palm shortening is at least somewhat discounted this weekend.  Plus this happens to be a free shipping weekend.  So I did the math.

Because of the free shipping, you’ll be getting my beloved palm shortening for just 24¢ per ounce. What have I been waiting for?  The gallon bucket will stay good for months, and it should be enough to last you a good long while too.  It’s a great price for a great product!


Afraid of palm shortening? Don’t be! While most shortenings (like Crisco) at the store are to be avoided, this organic palm shortening is not hydrogenated, not prone to rancidity, and has no trans fats. In addition, Tropical Traditions is very intentional about sustainable farming and does not use lands that have been deforested. We can trust Tropical Traditions.

So, Palm Shortening. Go get yours. It’s one of my favorite buckets to have in the kitchen!

Enter the code 24314 at check-out for free shipping to apply. Don’t forget, if you are a first time customer to Tropical Traditions, if you shop through the referral links in this post, you’ll receive the Virgin Coconut Oil Book for FREE automatically with your order.

Vitacost is Offering FREE Coconut Oil With Purchase (Plus Tons of Other Great Sale Prices!)

I’ve looked through the Vitacost site thoroughly today and found many items I use regularly. I’m loving this sale!!  (If you are a new customer with Vitacost, you can receive an additional $10 off too! Info at the bottom of this post.)

~ Buy any of the products on this page, receive a free 4-ounce container of Organic Coconut Oil. It’s a lovely bonus with your purchase. You’ll see on that sale page that they offer several sizes of coconut oil, both virgin (coconut flavor) and refined (flavorless).  Expired

Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are only $3.27 right now. I love these because they are soy free. They are also dairy free if that is a need for you. This is a great time to stock up on chocolate chips. Why? Because if you order them in the summer, they might melt while they are shipped to you. Ask me how I know.

~ Spectrum Refined Coconut Oil is only $5.99 for a 14 ounce jar. This price is less than the Vitacost brand mentioned above, so I’d go with this one and buy a Vitacost Virgin Coconut Oil for the above free coconut oil deal. I love having both virgin and refined on hand for different cooking/baking needs and preferences.

~ Spectrum Organic Palm Shortening is only $5.19 for a 24 ounce tub. Because this is made from palm oil, it is a very safe and healthy variety of shortening!

Farmer’s Market Organic Canned Pumpkin is $1.90 per can.

~ Rolled Oats are $3.49 for a two pound bag. Gluten Free Rolled Oats are just $3.99 for the same size.

The best news yet:  Are you a new customer to Vitacost?  Sign up through my referral link and get $10 off your first order of $30 or more! Once you sign up, you’ll receive a coupon code to use on your first order, which will knock ten bucks off your total!

Shipping is free when you spend at least $49. It is also free if you purchase at least $25 of Vitacost brand products. Otherwise, shipping is a flat $4.99.
