Rebecca30 reacted to Tom Denham in Coffee Creamer?
Personally, I think the coconut milk-coconut oil-egg coffee creamer is a Whole30 fail! It is classic sex with your pants on. You are using compliant ingredients to make a version of something to which you are addicted. The Whole30 is a time to grow in your relationship to food, not to hold on to your past as closely as possible. It makes me sad to see so much energy devoted to recreating the coffee experience of an unhealthy past rather than exploring the broad vistas of healthy eating.
The problem with heavy cream is the milk solids/proteins. They are removed from ghee. Ghee is allowed during a Whole30 because it is almost entirely fat.

Yesterday, I went to a Christmas lunch party at my boyfriend's work. I wasn't expecting to get to eat anything, but they had bbq, so I just had brisket with no sauce.
My boyfriend's coworkers, who I'm also friends with, said, "Awww, I'm sorry you can't have dessert."
Me: "That's okay, I'd feel like crap if I ate it anyway."
My boyfriend, who is very supportive, said: "Before you get too down on her diet, Cristina (coworker), you should know she had ribs for breakfast." I made them in my crockpot. Delicious. Thanks, PaleOMG!
Cristina replied, "Oh, so you fatten up around Christmas too, just in a different way, right? *chuckle*"
Me: "Haha, Actually, I've lost about 10 pounds in the past two weeks."

The other one is: "Why should I deprive myself?"
My answer: "Why do you eat food that does not nourish your body?"
Their answer: "Because it tastes good!"
My reply: "If your car's gas tank had taste buds and demanded lemonade instead of gasoline, would you comply?"
Their answer: "Of course not! Cars cannot run on lemonade!"
My reply: "Exactly. Your body cannot run on frankenfood. One of these days, it's going to crap out."
Their answer: "My mother ate (insert crappy food here) and she lived to be 90."
My reply: "Good for her. You are not her."
Their answer: "Whatever."
