    Here is another post about BPA in coconut milk, the traditional paleo diet's favorite milk substitute:

    Chris Kresser also has a great post on the protective effect of selenium from mercury in seafood:

    In the comment section of this post is how to make your own coconut milk and avoid all the additives. By the way, The Brazil Coconut Candy is loaded with selenium and would be a good "dessert" after your epi-paleo feasts:

    Just say no to using plastic if at all possible. Even if it is not on your food, using plastic will get into the environment, and in the long term will get into your food and water or the food and water of someone you love:

    I recently stopped pretty much all coconut milk. Initially I just had overeaten it and plain didn't want any any longer but now, that the "addiction" is over, I'm not going to put it back into my diet. If I want coconut, I'm going to eat coconut..... not canned coconut milk. I've always had concerns about the cans and I'm trying to move away from that in my diet. Just eat the real thing....
     

  4. Let me know some best practices with this! I keep trying to get those damn coconuts out of the shells, and it's always too difficult to make it worth the effort (which then makes me wonder if nature is trying to tell me something that I should be listening to)

    Same problem, same thoughts. Winter is coming and coconut will not be on the menu most likely for the most part. Possibly as CO a little bit. But in the summer I go at it with a hammer. First pierce the eyes with a screw driver, get out the water, then put the whole thing into a plastic bag and then put that elevated testosterone to good use while you go at it full force. (outside)



    Dried is always a step above canned.
