    Good Afternoon,

    I have two questions I hope someone can answer.

    After making milk kefir for several months I have way too many kefir grains. Are we allowed to eat them? I know they eat the sugar from the milk during the fermentation process so I was wondering if I would somehow end up eating the sugar by eating them?

    I was hoping to add coconut milk to my diet in April since it will be my 6th month on the diet. I purchased the Trader Joe’s Light Coconut Milk. The ingredients are coconut milk and water. But under the nutrition facts it says it has 2g of sugar. Is this a suitable coconut milk or is there one someone could recommend with 0g of sugar?

    Thank you so much!

    I would say it is Okay, I have seen posts from other members that have eaten the grains. This may help you out http://www.livestrong.com/article/276672-how-to-eat-kefir-grains/
    The sugar is so minimal I would not be worried, the benefit of the bio-diversity of the bacteria and yeast far out weight the small amounts of sugar present even if there is any.

    It is something that I have been drinking since day one of the diet, How much were you planning on drinking?

    Thank you for your advise blakek89. I read on other sites that people eat the grains but I wasn’t sure if it was safe on our diet. That link was very helpful. Thank you.

    I wasn’t sure how much coconut milk was appropriate. I was thinking maybe a cup a week. A little to make pancakes or coconut bread. How much do you drink? What coconut milk do you use?

    I don’t think there would be any problem with that amount. It is quite calorically dense so it is good for the diet to not lose weight. I drink a brand called So Delicious Unsweetened 0g sugar 1g fibre, it tastes very different then regular canned coconut milk. The coconut milk contains much more water, similar to skim milk.
