Newbie here and seeking advice: I got some organic light unsweetened coconut milk that I’ve been making smoothies with. Is this ok? Also is Green Valley Organic plain kefir ok? And organic green tea? Just one cup in the morning? Thanks.
My diet looks like this:
-Vegetable juice (kale, celery, spinach, aloe, e3live)
-one piece coconut bread
-mixed veggies: asparagus, artichokes, zucchini, broccoli
-dinner: more veggies and a little wild salmon or organic chicken
Water with lemon all day.
Is this ok?July 17, 2013 at 11:54 am #107735

Hi hwc, coconut milk is fine as long as the ingredients are just coconut milk and water. As far as the kefir is concerned, Flourish is listed as one of the ingredients, and I have no idea what that is, so I can’t really say whether it’s safe. You’re actually better off making your own kefir since it contains more strains than store bought.
I don’t know what e3live is, so I can’t comment. What’s in the coconut milkshake?
Everything else looks good. You may want to consider adding rutabaga since it is a great antifungal. It makes great fries and hash browns, and mashed rutabaga is really good too. Also, if you find that you’re still hungry throughout the day, I’ve found that avocados keep me satiated.July 17, 2013 at 12:06 pm #107737
Wow thanks. I don’t even know how to cook rudebaga? But I will learn. Will try today thanks. Apparently ‘flourish’ is their trademark name for their live cultures. I will call company and do more research today. Have no idea (or time) to make my own kefir. The coconut milkshakes have organic coconut milk, cinnamon, cardamom, a few ice cubes, a little stevia and a scoop of Sun Warrior raw, vegan brown rice protein. It has all the amino acids and I am on week 4 so I think I can add sprouted brown rice? Is this correct? I really need protein and it’s light and cooling in the summer and feels like I am having a sweet. On occasion I add 1/2 teaspoon of organic, raw cacao. Real raw cacao has zero sugar and lots of antioxidants. Perhaps frowned upon for the trace amounts of caffeine.
How is organic, green tea on this diet? I have a cup about 2-3x a week and so far it seems ‘ok’. I honestly miss coffee the most. More than anything else.
Thanks.July 17, 2013 at 1:18 pm #107742

It sounds like you’re not using the strict forum protocol. You can message Able900 if you’re interested in it.
I’m not familiar with some of the ingredients in the Sun Warrior Raw, so I can’t say whether it will affect you. Brown rice isn’t recommended on the strict forum diet since it can feed the candida. For protein, you can switch to hemp powder or hemp seeds. Cacao is problematic as well.
Green tea has caffeine, so you may want to switch to an herbal tea. There are many out there that would be beneficial. I miss coffee most too. You can try chicory root coffee. Make sure that is the only ingredient. It was a good substitute for me in the beginning with a little coconut milk, but nowadays I only drink it occasionally.
You can make mashed rutabaga just like mashed potatoes. Instead of adding butter, use olive or coconut oil. For hash browns, I like to shred the rutabaga and sauté it in coconut oil with salt and nutmeg.July 17, 2013 at 1:35 pm #107744
Thanks. Will do on all. I have hemp protein so will use that instead and I’ll buy some chicory today and try it. I really appreciate you answering me!
