I am a type 2 diabetic, and I found that switching to Paleo over a year ago brought my blood sugar down from the 360~480 range to the low 200's. FANTASTIC, RIGHT? I've taken insulin before, but it caused a rapid, disgusting weight gain of 2.5... (more)

On Whole 30 I made my own coconut milk because all the canned stuff has additives not permitted on Whole 30. It's not hard to do from flakes of coconut The boxed stuff has worse additives.

If you don't mind adding some honey, it will help the texture. It's an invert sugar so it lowers the freezing point -> easier to scoop + less crystallization. Alcohol has a similar effect. A tablespoon or so of vodka can help. You can... (more)

i use the trader joe's coconut milk for kefir. it works fine. i think it's just coconut and water. coconut extract is still coconut. the less ingredients, the better.

There is no scientific evidence to show that consuming coconut oil helps people lose weight. But there is one recent study, however, using MCT oil, which suggests coconut oil may work in the same way. Even if coconut oil does help people lose... (more)

Aroy uses a high heat pasteurization process on the tetra pak coconut milk to give it a long shelf life. They don't add anything. So base your decision with some facts in hand. http://www.templeofthai.com/food/coconut-milk/aroy-d-small
