Hi Sharon,
Yes that is the name of the store, everything in the store is priced 99 cents or less. We have them in Southern California but I don't know if they are in other states.

Hope this helps,
Erin---

I've been striking out w/getting coconut milk at a good price...all of our local groceries absolutely do not carry it. Guess it to the health food store to pay $1.59 a can!! I'll try and peek around at the dollar stores and Big Lots this week too...

[COLOR=YellowGreen]LEMON BARS[/COLOR] (with Coconut Oil (either expeller pressed or virgin)

I just made these. They are wickedly good!!


Lemon Curd Recipe:

3 large eggs

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons) (do not use the bottled lemon juice)

1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon zest (optional)

3/4 cup sugar sub (I used 1/2 erythritol, 1/2 Xylitol - processed in a coffee grinder into a powder to aid in dissolving)

4 tablespoons CO at room temperature and cut into small pieces




In a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the eggs, sugar sub, and lemon juice until blended. Cook, stirring constantly (to prevent it from curdling), until the mixture becomes thick (like sour cream or a hollandaise sauce) . This will take approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately pour through a fine strainer to remove any lumps. Cut the CO into small pieces and whisk into the mixture until the CO has melted. Add the lemon zest and let cool. The lemon curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Cover immediately (so a skin doesn't form).



Crust:


1 cup Carbquik
4-6 TBSP cold CO or VCNO
cut these together with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
2 TBSP cold water.

Mix gently and press into a 9 x 9 pan. Bake at 350 until golden and remove from oven and cool.

Pour lemon curd into crust. Top with whipped cream or powdered "sugar".

Chill until firm.

HELP ME PLEASE!!! ANYONE!!!

Hi there,
Short and brief message.
I am on day 16 of Atkins Induction.
I have followed it faithfully.
and not lost 1 lb.
First week I was down 5.
Next day up 6!!!
Yesterday down 3
today back up to my normal weight.
I heard on here that Coconut oil can boost my metabolism which is super slow.
Not sure y as I work out and thyroid is normal!!!

I am not discouraged tho but need a recipe for something I can take daily without fruit cuz I cannot have any yet. Something in the form of a drink, smoothie, that is yummy and low carb. Can someone offer me something. I have bought my virgin coconut oil and looked at the yummy recipes but I cannot have any of them yet..................

Help please and if anyone can offer any suggestions on what on earth is happening and I am not losing I would be so happy to hear from you.

Thanks so much,,,,,,,,
Tah for now,
Emily

Try just adding it to a cup of hot tea. This is the simplest way besides just taking it straight like a shot or off the spoon.

Good luck.

If I were you I would stay off the scale for awhile and let your body adjust to your new way of life.

When I started using coconut oil I felt extremely nauseated and dizzy for two days, from what I understand that is detoxing. I feel great now. Try to hang in there.

Thank you. I still don't fully understand these threads etc.
So this daily thread is not the challenge/or?
Is it people who r interested in coconut oil?
Sorry to bore u with my un....knowledge.......
Anyways I do not like the taste of my virgin coconut but put it in ginger peach tea which is all organic and then I didn't taste it and I didn't get the naseau I got today... Still don't like the greasy taste on my lips tho.......
I don't know when to stop induction cuz nothing has happened.....
Shall I go to another thread for help?
I came here because I heard the oil can speed up metabolism so I have had 6 tbsp. today for my first day. Not sure if I can handle this and I paid $20 for it...........

Premium Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream

Premium Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream
1 can coconut milk or cream
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 Tbs. Splenda
Dash salt
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs. vanilla
Combine coconut milk, oil, Splenda, and salt in saucepan. Cook over medium
heat, stirring occasionally until mixture almost boils. Reduce heat to low. In a bowl beat egg. Gradually stir about 1/2 cup of hot coconut milk into the beaten egg..Slowly stir this egg mixture into remaining hot coconut milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes..Stir in vanilla..Remove from heat and let cool. Use the ice cream
maker to finish..or use a blender..(see below)
Blender method: Freeze the mixture in ice cube trays until it is mostly frozen..about 2 hours. You want the mixture to be about 32 degrees, but
not frozen solid. Put the mixture into the blender and blend away. It should
look like a thick milkshake..Eat immediately or pour the ice cream into an airtight container and freeze.
For strawberry, etc. ice cream..You will use the basic recipe, but add more
sweetener to taste..Then blend the 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fresh or frozen fruit
in a blender with the cooled down mixture to mix well.
I think I will use the expeller pressed coconut oil, so my vanilla tastes more
like vanilla..
There would be 7 Tbs. of coconut oil in this recipe..3 for the milk, and 4 for
the oil.

So the only carbs in this ice cream is the spenda and egg?
Can I have this on induction?

Have any of you used the thinkenthin not/sugar? I was thinking it might add a good mouth feel and stability to our CO bark. I have been adding PolyD and I like the change it makes to the texture, except it is kind of gritty.

Buffy45 -- it is my understanding that if you can get polyd to dissolve, that it doesn't get gritty again, but that it doesn't like to dissolve in fats. I don't know if you add any syrups to your bark, but -- if so -- you might try heating it in that first. Just a thought...

I've been using my EVCO for cauli-rice lately and it has been out of this world:

4 oz grated/shredded cauliflower
2 oz chopped mushrooms
1 oz chopped prosciutto
salt and pepper to taste
dash of butter extract

Saute in 1 T. of EVCO until cauliflower begins to become just a bit transparent, about 3 minutes.

OMG, I just had lunch and I can't wait to have it again!

Here's something for those who eat LC bread in the morning:

Just wanted everyone to know that the best best toast is when I spread coconut oil liberally onto the bread before toasting. Great Toast!!

Hmmmmm..I have a toaster oven which might work better in case the stuff flames
up when it is in the regular toaster..

Anyone game to try it??

The coconut pie is on page 3

Impossibly Easy Coconut Milk Pie

8 servings....one serving equals 1 Tbs. of oil and approx. 200 calories

3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)
3/4 cup Splenda/or sweetener
1/2 cup Carbquik
3 Tbs. coconut oil
one can of coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs

Heat oven to 350. Spray 9 inch pie plate.

Stir all ingredients in a bowl until mixed well. Pour into pie pan.

Bake 50-55 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool 5 minutes.

You can serve this warm or refrigerate it right away.

I had a piece for breakfast..It was very good..


Another one for those of you who want to drink your coconut..
