Good morning, Steph.
When you first begin eating the coconut bread, it really does have a very ‘bland’ taste to it. But believe it or not, your taste buds will adapt to a more bland diet as time goes by. The reason for this is simple, the human body as an entirety was meant to be adaptable to almost anything you feed it. As we now know, this includes carbohydrates; years ago both nutritionists and scientists claimed that a human being could not exist without a specific amount of carbohydrates, but apparently they failed to take into account the Eskimos living in the Arctic lived for centuries on nothing but sea life such as whales, seals, salmon, and cod. From where were they obtaining their so-called needed number of carbs? They weren’t, yet they existed, healthy and without medical aid in most cases. That was due to nothing but the adaptability of the human body.
For the time being, in addition to adding the lemon flavor, you might try brushing the top of a slice of bread with olive oil and sprinkling with a mixture of herbs then toasting in the oven or a toaster oven. This presents an entire new and savory taste for you.
As far as the coconut oil is concerned, I agree with you, I doubt there are many things that could possibility taste worse than a spoonful of pure coconut oil. You might try having a glass of warm water available and take a swallow along with the spoonful of oil. This may help to get it down.
