  1. Getting close to my 30 days! and thinking ahead for when I decide to implement the reintroduction of certain foods. I've been using Nutpods for my coffee creamer but find them a bit expensive. (I tried drinking my coffee black) After doing some research on coconut milk, I found all the chilled was sweetened and all the carton unsweetened coconut milk I could find had collogeanan. (I tried the canned but couldn't get it to mix well) My question is: if I'm going to use one or the other, would it be better to use unsweetened coconut milk in the carton or dairy milk? (Dairy has never bothered me as far as I know and I don't use much)
  2. I am trying to stick with eating only three (relatively large) meals a day that mostly consist of protein, veggies, and fat. But if I am hungry for a snack, is it okay if I eat a handful of nuts or coconut chia seed pudding? Should I eat fruits or nuts/fat as a snack?
  3. I had really bad pain with my whole body being incredibly sore on day 5-15 of this round and I introduced Magnesium supplement which helped. I am back to the Magnesium which is helping a little but not as much as before. I was feeling incredible until mid-day today and plan to complete the Whole60 because I do not feel like my first Whole30 was long enough to get the full effect. Has anyone else had joint/muscle pain when introducing coffee or espresso? Or suggestions? I have been having 2 shots + 3-4 onces of Light Coconut Milk. I have been keeping hydrated to make up for the espresso dehydration. Will be removing espresso for this weekend to test. I do have lower back, hip, & knees issues and been in and out of Physical Therapy since I was 15 yrs old (I am 32). All are flaring up right now. I have hip problems a mass of scar tissue (has shrinked a good amount during this W30) and have had Sciatica. My hip has been drastically better for the last 2.5 weeks but flaring really bad today. I have lost 18 lbs (175 lbs, 5' 8") which should help my joints. Been spending time on the treadmill and stretching in a sauna about 4 times a week. The espresso overall has me feeling drastically better overall and did not hurt until mid-day today after 3 days of espresso. I am used to being sore in my joints but this is different. Thank you!
  4. Hey guys, looking for help determining if the coconut milk at the store is compliant. The brand is Thai and the ingredients are: Organic coconut, water, and guar gum. The guar gum throws me a little. Any help is appreciated!!!
  5. Hi team, I've just started my Whole30 today! And I'm looking to find a compliant coconut milk to put in coffee, there are tins of it at the supermarket but they seem more for just the cooking I was looking at ones that are made for drinking, like almond and soy milks. BUT, I get really thrown by some of the ingredients...are the ones I've copied in below compliant? Ingredients: Filtered water, coconut cream (min. 8%), inulin, mineral (calcium, phosphate), emulsifier (471), vegetable gum (407, 418), natural flavours, sea salt. If not, does anyone know of a good one you can get in NZ? I had already decided to not worry about coffee while I'm doing this, but figured if I can find a good milk I could give it a try. Thanks!! Leah.

    Vita Coco Bottled Coconut Milk

    I usually use canned coconut milk exclusively, but I found this at my local grocery the other day, and I *think* the ingredients check out. The only thing that has me curious is the cellulose gel, cellulose gum and the "fortified vitamins and minerals". I did some digging and the consensus seems to be that these ingredients pass, but I figured I would put it out here for confirmation (I want to share with a group I'm leading, but definitely don't want to give them misinformation). Looking forward to starting my 5th Whole30 on January 2! Pictures attached, but here is the ingredients list for convenience: Coconut Water Water Coconut Cream Contains less than 2% of stabilizers (cellulose gel and cellulose gum) Fortified Vitamins and Minerals: Tricalcium phosphate Magnesium sulfate Vitamin A Zinc Sulfate

    Coconut Milk Substituons/Allergy

    Hi! I am new to whole 30 and wanting to begin soon! I read the book yesterday and noticed many recipes are made with coconut. I am allergic to coconut, nuts, and avocado, and I was wondering if anyone could reccomend a good substitution for coconut milk, specifically. I cannot do cashew, almond or any nut-related milk due to my Nut allergy. Thanks in advance!

    Coconut milk substitute?

    Whole30 newbie here and I'm reading my book and prepping for the big day. I noticed a LOT of recipes call for coconut milk and oil. I'm not a huge fan of coconut. As in I've often said if the last food in earth was coconut I'm done. Any substitutes out there for coconut milk on the whole30? When I need the oil I figure I can use ghee but the liquid is a different situation. Thanks!
  9. My Geisha cocnut milk has emulsifying agent E473 and stabilizing agent E466. Are these allowed?
  10. 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.

    HELP - Is this compliant?

    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?
  12. 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,
  13. 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

    Food questions

    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

    Blue Diamond- Almond Breeze

    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
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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.

    Coconut Milk

    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?

    Starbuck green tea latte

    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?
  21. 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!

    Lumpy coffee with coconut milk?

    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!

    Paleo Creamer...

    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.

    making my own creamer

    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?
  25. 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!
