I live in Canada and of the Walmart products I've only tasted the Thai Kitchen coconut milk which I thought was the best until I heared arroy-d is better. Any opinions?

Walmart used to carry it, but stopped over a year ago, as far as I know. Thai Kitchen is good. Whole Foods' 365 brand is also good and BPA free.

Maybe try some creatine instead as it will supply extra ATP for energy.  It's probably not a great idea to do carbs during a workout depending on your goals.  You'd be able to continue the workout further with the carbs than without, but... (more)

Anyone know what exactly is defined as "organic" salmon? I'd imagine its not wild salmon or it would say that, but surely its better than regular farmed salmon, but I just don't know how. Anyone know about Costcos organic salmon?

All wild-caught fish are organic. Farmed salmon might or might not be "organic". Either way, it doesn't matter much, an "organic" salmon label is simply a marketing move to make you pay more for the same thing. All salmon is good, just buy... (more)

You can buy unflavored "Electrolyte Water" at Whole Foods for about $0.99 per liter.  I used it during colonoscopy prep.  It has no flavor, but it's got balanced potassium and sodium.
