|Ummm! Co- co- nut!|
I have gone long periods of time without eating any meat, in fact years with no red meat but now I am back to being a regular old omnivore. I eat meat because I seem to crave it, but a moments reflection allows me to realize that I am not craving flesh but the nutrients I get out of it. So over the past few months I have been going crazy with full fat coconut milk and it seems to have fulfilled my needs for fatty meats. Coconut milk is high in fat and good calories, fibre, MCT's (a special medium chain triglyeride which I used to sell as a fitness supplement, but that naturally occurs in coconut) and loads of vitamins and minerals. So if you are trying to cut back on meat for whatever reason-there are many good arguments against eating meat- then start drinking and cooking with coconut milk (in cans) and cooking with coconut oil! Great alternative to saturated fats from animals!
