I have a feeling that we should avoid it cause it’s pretty fatty and it’s too delicious to be true lol according to this website we should avoid it because “All commercial dairy substitutes are processed and contain “bad” oils and fats, and other unacceptable ingredients.” http://www.healingnaturallybybee.com/articles/foods50.phpJune 28, 2011 at 7:37 am #63895

I wouldn’t even consider debating the fact that coconuts and coconut products in general are one of the healthiest foods we as humans can consume; I’ll just tell you why I eat coconuts, use coconut oil daily, and stir several tablespoons of coconut cream into Greek yogurt three times a day.
Coconut products do contain saturated fat, however, this is a healthy and beneficial fat which is easily metabolized and turned into energy. Regardless of what you read or hear, research has proven that coconut fat will not raise cholesterol.
Coconut oil is 50% lauric acid, and coconut cream is so full of coconut oil that a thick layer settles on top of the cream and must be stirred into the cream before using. New mothers are encouraged to breast feed their newborns for many reasons, one of the major reasons being the lauric acid in the breast milk. Lauric acid protects the baby’s health by converting into a compound which is a strong disruptor of the membranes of fungus, viruses, and bacteria therefore destroying them. Inadvertently, lauric acid targets many bacterial infections, influenza, HIV, and herpes for just a few. This all explains why, on average, breast-fed babies experience less sickness, colds and infections than bottle-fed babies do, and as adults we can obtain plenty of lauric acid in coconut and coconut products such as the cream and oil.

thanks for that info.. that’s interesting about lauric acid, although ‘guar gum’ is whats printed on my can- im assuming they are the same sort of thing.June 29, 2011 at 3:27 pm #63914

No, guar gum is not the same thing. You can find coconut milk that is 100% coconut – nothing added. Thai Kitchen is a redily available brand that is 100% coconut, and they offer an organic version for those trying to keep pesticides/herbicides out of their systems, too. If you live near a Trader Joe’s, they also sell pure coconut milk. I use both extra virgin coconut oil and coconut milk (the full fat version!) on this diet. The coconut milk can be very nice as a base for Thai herbs to marinate chicken or, if you’re eating grains, sweetend with stevia and poured over cooked grains for breakfast on ocassion.June 29, 2011 at 3:53 pm #63915
thanks hope, dont think we have those places over here in Aussie, but ill def check out the health shops for the pure c milk.July 6, 2011 at 6:33 pm #64001

I have heard that coconut ice cream is delicious, so I plan on buying an ice cream maker. I noticed the thrift store had many (many new in box), so plan on picking one up there. That way can make healthy ice cream I can eat guilt free, especially right now with fresh berries to add in the mix.
one of my favorite treats is making my own coconut almond joys/mounds.
take a cup of organic unsweetened coconut, add maybe tablespoon (until moist) of coconut milk or oil, stir, make balls and stick in freezer for a bit to harden. I also sometimes add unsweetened coconut with a stevia packet and/or almond to top. It’s yummy (assuming you love coconut like I do), and good for me. What other candy can you say that about.
One of the best things about the candida diet is that you no longer have to worry about calories, since everything is so healthy. You still lose weight eating as much as you like (of what you can eat)July 11, 2011 at 7:45 pm #64063
haha i know its great- i dont even look at the fat content anymore or anything, i just eat it if it has no sugar or yeast! that recipe sounds yumo, thanks!
i actually love making my own healthy rum-balls – i use practically everything in the pantry that i can eat, and add xylitol and a dash of coconut milk, roll and dip in coconut and fridge them!
also, 1/4 cup of natural yoghurt blended with 1/2 cup of fresh frozen berries with a tablespoon of xylitol is a beautiful treat on occasion!July 12, 2011 at 11:16 pm #64080

If you have a masticating juicer, I highly recommend juicing a fresh coconut; you get the most amazing cream out of it. Youve then basically got a raw ‘desiccated’ coconut left over to use in other foods.
