  1. Best #whole30 trick I learned: Warm ~1/4 c coconut milk in mug. Add ~1 tsp unsweetened cocoa (optional) and ~1/4 c of hot coffee. Blend with wand mixer (or in blender), then fill w/more coffee til you get the flavor you like. MAGICAL frothy goodness. And it is a whole different drink than just coffee and coconut milk stirred together. EDITED TO ADD: 4+ years later, this is still how I drink my coffee. I never went back to dairy.
  2. Hi All, I found some coconut milk at Costco but didn't buy it because I wasn't 100% certain it is compliant. Here is the label for the unsweetened version - can someone advise?
  3. Hey All, I am getting ready to start a Whole 30, but still in the planning/getting past upcoming events stage. And I was wondering what do people do with the leftover coconut water when making their own coconut cream from coconut milk (as outlined on page 178 of The Whole 30 book)? Thanks,
  4. Hi there! It's day 7 and I am ready to throw in the towel on coconut milk. I've tried it in several different forms, and I guess I'm just really sensitive to the coconut flavor, and it's not palatable. Does anyone know of a substitute for coconut milk that I can use in my soups to give a creamy "feel" without the coconut taste? Thanks, Forum, for your help! MGR
  5. Ok…here are my questions…. 1) once ghee is open must it be refrigerated? 2) Are we allowed Vita coco water (pure coconut water and that with added pineapple)? 3) Are we allowed coconut sugar? 4) What is a serving size of sweet potatoes? 5) What kind of coconut milk is compliant and what are you using if for? 6) How many is too many Lara bars? 7) Do you not eat something sweet when you feel you need something sweet? Like you don’t eat a fruit dessert or munch on sweet potatoes as a snack when you need something? If that is considered feeding the “sugar dragon” then what do you do when a craving hit? I’m finding it interesting because I often eat when I’m not hungry but feel dissatisfied. Please help! Thanks, Melissa
  6. Hey fellow whole30ers! I am reaching out because I can't seem to figure out a good solution to this issue I've come across: how to avoid grainy coconut milk (canned), or how to "fix" it - if that's possible. Sometimes I get cans that are GREAT! and the consistency is like cream. Other times it's hard to even use because it's soooo grainy and separated, even after vigorous stirring. I typically use small amounts of coconut milk in my coffee, so it's definitely noticeable when it's grainy. I have heard that typically the coconut milk that is not in cans is non-compliant. Anyone have suggestions? Gratefully, Diana @paleoheythere on instagram
  7. Good morning all, I was wondering if someone could take a look at the ingredient list for this almond milk and let me know if it is approved? I didn't see anything "bad" in the list, but I am new to the program and trying to figure out what I can and cannot have. I like this in my coffee. Please help Thank you
  8. I have been making a lot of dishes that call for coconut cream, but I'm wondering if there is any use for the liquid leftover after I scoop out the cream. Any suggestions? I hate wasting it!
  9. Help! I couldn't find a whole 30 compliant coconut milk in my grocery store yesterday. Recommendations on where I can find it in the store? brands? Also couldn't find jarred roasted red peppers for the red pepper sauce recipe.
  10. When a recipe calls for coconut milk, what should I use? The boxed, refrigerator milk, the canned light milk, the canned full fat milk? If the canned full fat, do I mix the solids and the water or just use the solids? It seems like it would be "too much of a good thing" to put 3/4 cup of solids in a recipe that calls for 3/4 cup of coconut milk. Help! Thanks in advance!
  11. Shopping at my local Whole Foods and I was having some hesitation whether I found compliant options for the following: Apple Sauce (365 Organic Brand) - Ingredients: Organic Apple Puree Diced Tomatoes (Muir Glen Organic) - Ingredients: Organic Tomatoes, Organic Tomato Juice, Sea Salt, Citric Acid and Calcium Chloride Coconut Milk (SO Delicious Dairy Free - Unsweetened) - Ingredients: Organic CoconutMilk (Filtered Water, Organic Coconut Cream), Contains 2% or Less of: Vitamin and Mineral Blend (Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Phosphate, L-Selenomethoionine, Vitamin A Acetate, VItamin D2, Zinc Oxide, Sea Salt, Organic SUnflower lechithin, organic locut bean gum, gellan gum) Also, what are recommendations for ingredients that say "Natural Flavoring"? Thanks so much!
  12. I'm on day 11 and things have been going pretty well. Tonight I'm feeling may be pms. My husband is out of town so I just made my daughter mac n cheese and I just baked a cod fillet. It was not great. Now I want to sit on the couch and have fruit and whipped coconut milk with cinnamon. It is compliant but I'm feeling guilty about eating it because I know it's a dessert type comfort food. I shouldn't eat it right? Just tell me not to eat it, lol.
  13. Just wanted to let others know that the Natural Value brand of canned coconut milk has a coupon on amazon right now. Brings it down to $2.28 a can which is a great price
  14. I'm two weeks in and loving the plan but so missing milk. Can we have coconut milk that is unsweetened ? How much and what type exactly. What about almond milk?
  15. Hi. Today is my 1st day and I have a question. I have already stuck my can of coconut milk in the fridge for when I need coconut cream. But what do I do with my leftover coconut milk? If I put it on the fridge I just have more coconut cream. I'm assuming the can needs refrigerated after opening. Would I have to bring it to room temp before using again?
  16. I need a jolt but I can't drink black coffee or coffee period. Can I have a Starbucks green tea latte with coconut milk? sounds compliant but I guess its possible that they sweeten the powder tea right?
  17. So I did my whole30 about a year ago. I felt great and had so many nonscale victories. But one thing that was happening to me at the same time was severe abdominal pain, concentrated on the left side mostly but sometimes the right side, and it was always worse during the morning. And, sorry TMI, but was also having BM issues - diarrhea off and on. I was using coconut milk/cream in my coffee, and almost every day eating the chia pudding recipe with chia seeds, mashed banana, and coconut milk. So fast forward to one year later and I bought a pack of nutpods on Amazon and am trying them for the first time. So this morning I notice that pain is back! Eureka! I was sort of suspicious last year of the coconut milk causing the issues, but brushed it off. But now I am convinced. I googled it and apparently some people have issues tolerating it...fructose malabsorption maybe, or something else. I'm just glad I know now and can avoid it. I have never noticed a problem when I've used it in curries, soups, etc., so that's good. It's probably just the fact that it's such a heavy amount all at once! I just wanted to share in case anyone else has had these issues!
  18. Hi everyone! I am on day 18 of my first Whole30. It's going pretty well so far. As I've been getting closer to the end than the beginning, my anxiety about slip ups is rising. I would HATE to have to start over at this point, after all of my hard work. So, that being said, I am wondering if the coconut milk I bought from Sprouts last night is compliant. It is the So Delicious brand Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk. I've seen the So Delicious brand Unsweetened Coconut Milk get the green light on the forums, so I am wondering about the Vanilla. I hope it's okay! The ingredients are: Organic Coconut Milk (Water, Organic coconut cream) Natural Vanilla Flavor Calcium Phosphate Magnesium Phosphate Guar Gum Xanthan Gum Vitamin A Acetate Vitamin D-2 L-Selenomehionine (Selenium) Zinc Oxide Folic Acid Vitamin B-12 And, another question. I looked through all of Sprouts fresh cut deli meat to find one without sugar, and the Roast Beef is the only one that seems compliant. But, I am not sure about some of the ingredients. Can anyone help me? Beef Contains no more than 12% of a solution of Water, Salt, Potassium Lactate (is this dairy?), Sodium Lactate (?), Caramel Color (?), Garlic Powder, and Spices Thanks in advance for helping out my anxiety!
  19. Hi, Starting the Whole30 on Monday and preparing my cupboards! I have a can of coconut milk with the stabiliser Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose added. I can't find reference to this on the food additives cheat sheet or elsewhere in the forum. Any guidance on whether this is a yes or a no would be much appreciated. I'm inclined to think no, as I have found some information on Wikipedia that suggests it was found to cause low grade inflammation during a study in 2015 (on Mice). Thank You Carli
  20. First time poster, day 3 of 1st Whole 30, 1st can of chilled coconut milk. Is there a wax layer on the top of the milk between lid and product? When we opened the can to extract the congealed cream there were definitely 3 very different layers: On top, about 1/2" thick, a very hard substance that we don't think has any flavor but feels like chewing wax. Middle, about 2" thick, coconut cream Bottom, about 2" thick, coconut water What is the top layer? Is it an even harder cream that we should be blending in with the cream? I'm laughing already at my naivety.
  21. I tried my first coffee without milk/cream this morning in preparation for beginning my first Whole 30 in two days. As suggested on these forums, I added coconut milk, which I shook well before pouring into the coffee. The taste was strongly coffee (I'm used to a milder flavor with the addition of cream and sweetener), which was surprisingly palatable and nice. But the consistency was slightly oily with floaters, which didn't taste bad, and seemed to disperse when I swirled the mug before taking a swig. Is this your experience, too? Did the coconut milk curdle, or is this normal since it tends to separate even in the can or storage container? Thanks!
  22. Preface: Last Whole30 August 2014. Stunning results, but totally fell off the wagon! Current Whole30 started Monday (10/26). I was bragging to my coworker about making the Paleo creamer and she said, "It's right in the rules, you can't make that because it's a swap". I used 10 dates, hot water, and 1 can compliant coconut milk. It's not really sweet at all, just not coconutty tasting (yes that's a word because I just typed it! ) Please advise.
  23. I am conflicted regarding making your own stuff. In the book, it mentions not making pancakes, even if you are using compliant foods but its okay to make your own mayonnaise, ranch, etc. So it is against the rules to make your own creamer using coconut milk with added stuff like dates, cinnamon, or vanilla bean or does that fall under the same thing as making your own dressings?
  24. I found compliant coconut milk today, so here's two questions I have (I've done some googling but haven't found a ton of answers yet): 1) How long will it last in the fridge if I transferred the contents from the can to a glass container in the fridge? 2) Do I have to blend it with coffee for it to count as "healthy fat"with a meal? Or is it OK just stirred in? Thanks!
  25. Actually I am in week 2 of Whole 30, and I am getting pretty good at label reading finally...however, I want to make sure this is compliant. ingredients: filtered water, organic coconut cream, sunflower legithin, tricalcium phosphate, sea salt, organic vanilla extract-STOP Nevermind I just answered my own question! Boo hoo-no vanilla extract with whole 30--I guess I will don't this to my co-workers! I have bought all of Walmarts goldden harvest in a can-so I am good anyways for awhile...
