Absolutely agree; I have exaggerated somewhat in my attempt to help someone find a use for a food they aren't familiar with. I haven't had this fruit salad every day, not even close. 1x week would be more accurate & as a side dish to my protein/veggie. I did make it with a dinner one night when the bananas were about to go (they ripen so quick in my house!), so make that 3x. I viewed it as the lesser of evils. I feel a little defensive on the breakfast issue in general though - many people eat carb heavy breakfasts and that is tough to switch from - but I am not one of them. I haven't had cereal in nearly a year, not oatmeal, waffles, none of that for breakfast. I prefer eggs & sausage. And when I don't have time to cook that, I have compliant lunch meat, zuke slices, & sometimes, the monkey salad.
That being said, back to the original question - coconut flakes? How about trying some of the recipes at the bottom of the trop traditions page?
