    Coconut Flakes

    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?

    I've been using them to make monkey salad all the time. Seems unsavory when looking through the package, but they are delicious and really add something to a fruit or veggie salad. I haven't had time to toast them yet, but it's on my list.
