281

I've been using shredded coconut instead of coconut milk (in my protein shakes) the past few days. This sort of happened by accident. I ran out of coconut milk and Mad bought some shredded coconut for possible use in a cookie recipe. Let's call this a happy accident. :-)

Adding the shredded coconut makes for a more filling and nutritious shake - more fiber and nutrients.


11:00 am


+ a mug of LC ChocoCoffee (2-3 tablespoons of organic cocoa powder, 1 tsp of organic instant coffee, 2 packets of stevia and inulin, a dash of Also Salt and hot water)

1:45 pm

+ an LC Peanut Butter Coconut Protein Shake - a few ounces of organic shredded coconut and cold water, a scoop of natural vanilla egg white protein powder, 2-3 tbs of organic peanut butter, organic sprouted flax meal, 3 ice cubes, a dash of organic stevia and Also Salt

5:00 pm

+ an LC Coffee Coconut Protein Shake - a few ounces of organic (shredded) coconut and cold water, a scoop of natural vanilla whey protein, organic sprouted flax meal, 3 ice cubes, a tsp of organic instant coffee and a dash of organic stevia and Also Salt

8:00 pm

+ 3 pieces of dark meat oven roasted chicken

+ broccoli with roasted garlic

10:30 pm

+ a strong cup of organic white tea (3 tea bags worth)


More to come ... I hope!

Gilligan would be loving this, Harry!

I am shocked at how low carb coconut is... and I don't know why. It just seemed like one of those "naughty" high-fat foods. I should know better!! I am even thinking about experimenting with coconut and chicken... could be interesting!

cilla said...

Harry/JP said...

Ha! You'll have mail soon too, Angie! :-)

Anne,

I've often thought of myself as a castaway. :-)

Harry/JP said...

Angie,

It's not only low carb but also high in fiber. Plus, it's got a natural sweetness to it ... even without much sugar. It's a great food!

Coconut chicken sounds delicious!

Harry/JP said...

Hope you enjoy it ... if you try it, Cilla! :-)

Let me join in on the chorus - thanks for the coconut tip! It makes sense, but I never would have thought of it!

I trust your usual bubbly self is having a lovely day :)

A lack of coconut milk is the mother of all invention. That's how the old saying goes, Erika. :-)

It's rather hot and humid here. A challenging day ahead (for other reasons) but we'll make it through. What other choice do we have? ;-)

Hope your day is a winner!
