    Carol got a reaction from Kimberly G in Compliant Coffee Creamer!!   
    Just a suggestion -- there is a brand of coconut milk (and coconut cream) from the Philippines called Aroy-D.  They sell cans of coconut milk.  However, what is more interesting is that they also sell aseptic cartons of coconut milk.  

    There are important differences.  One, the aseptic contain NO additives.  100 percent coconut milk.

    Another -- the very nature of canning cooks the contents of its food for preservation.  The asceptic processing is more high tech and commonly involves the packaging being created and then filled in the same sterile environment. This means the food product going in to the asceptic packaging only needs to be heat pasturized for 5-10 seconds, rather than several minutes.  The science is amazing.

    Since the product does not need prolonged exposure to high heat and pressure, more nutrients are preserved.  Plus, it tastes better.  MUCH better, much fresher.  There is no coconut milk in a can anywhere that tastes as good as this stuff.

    Minor drawback?  The food in aseptic cartons have a shorter shelf life.   So if you're prepping for a zombie apocalypse -- or even a big storm -- don't stash aseptic cartons of coconut milk in the cellar, expecting them to be good 12 months from now.   But if you buy from a store who turns over their stock regularly, it might be good 3-6 months from now.

    Right. Coffee. We were talking about coffee.   I never liked canned coconut miilk in my coffee.  But I LOVE this milk in my coffee.  Sometimes I thin it out with some water or almond milk, but I usually just drink it as is.    It also freezes very well.   

    100% coconut milk, 100% compliance, and delicious.  WIN!!

    Carol got a reaction from Gail Tea in Day 22 and feeling defeated...   

    This is a tough stretch of days!    You see the end, but its still some time away.     So close and yet so far.  The closest I came to quitting was Day 23.     But to know that I came thiiiiiiiiis close to falling off the wagon and DID NOT DO IT has become a major source of strength, even though I still feel a little sheepish about it.  

    You're a realistic person, it seems.  Perhaps one reason why you don't feel successful is that the 30 days isn't up yet.    The goal isn't met, there is still work to be done.

    But you'll get there.   And I bet once you reach the goal you will feel differently.  This is Day 30 for me
